Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Jon. Nice to meet you.
I greatly appreciate anything in this world that makes me smile,
laugh or feel something genuine. I'm responsible and career minded.
I'm young at heart and I like women with both strong opinions and a
strong sense of self.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been a creative director in advertising for many years and
recently opened up my own shop in sunny Oakland with the intention
of being a part of the exciting rebirth of that great and often
overshadowed city. I live in the east bay so i can be near my two
energetic boys whom I love dearly.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being comfortable in my own skin. Making people around me feel
relaxed and comfortable in theres. Causing you laugh at moments
when you probably shouldn't be. Looking at things from multiple
perspectives. My job. This great trick I can consistently do with a

I tend to smile a lot. I also tend not to take myself too
seriously, and I'm drawn to people, places and things that do the
same. Yes, a serious conversation can be an amazing thing, but if I
were going to drop dead at a given moment, I'd much rather have it
happen during a good solid laugh than a heavy conversation about
global warming. I'm just sayin'.

Anderson some, any epic period peice. American Beauty, Hedwig and

Shows. Daily Show. Fallon. Nathan for You. Breaking Bad. The Wire.
Walking Dead. Drunk History
I love live music. I grew up a punk rock kid in NY, but my love and
appreciation for music is broad. Everything from alternative to old
70's reggae and rocksteady to drum and bass to country to pop. It's
all good (Well, almost all. ha). Taking in live music and
supporting people who play it has always been super important to
I also collect and play ukuleles. Something I've done since 1999.
Nothing Hawaiian, just some old punk ditties, Bowie, reggae
classics and 80's and 90's pop. It's like wooden prozac for
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Chamomile tea.
2. Quality bedding.
3. My iPhone
6. my boys.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Staying in the moment. Or should I say, trying to stay in the
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either with my boys explaining to them why we can't watch the bulk

There, I said it... It's a curse....
