I'm a very outgoing, fun, intelligent guy - I like to stay active,
work hard, play hard, etc. I'm very lighthearted, generally an
optimist, and prefer to see the brighter side of life. I am huge
fan of NOT being dramatic. I like animals, kids, and live music - I
like to cook, I like to eat, and when I see a movie in the theater,
it's usually by myself. I'm without a doubt more a giver than a
taker, and while I'm generally more happy out and about surrounded
by people, I'm often just as happy curled up on the couch with a
good book, Netflix and my cat (I'm not a "cat person" - I just
happen to own a badass cat).
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved to NYC in August from Seattle, where I was
(essentially) born and raised. Came out here to help my company
build out their NYC office, which is going to be a blast! At this
point, everything here is new to me (and everything on the East
Coast, really) - so, lots of exploring and adventuring.
I’m really good at
Talking to strangers, being the last one left standing, going with
the flow, managing finances, being a wingman, noticing when
someone's gotten their hair cut or is wearing a new outfit,
entertaining myself, enjoying nerdy things, saying yes, making
people laugh, going first, being kind, being loyal, making others
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm smiling at you and looking you in the eye.

Food: If it's good, I'll eat it. Or if I've never tried it, I'll
eat it. Everything once, right? I work down the street from Pike
Place, so I buy most everything around in there - such great
