Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an American that moved to France nearly eight years ago. I
speak an average amount of French - hardly enough to call myself
fluent but enough to get by in Paris and impress my relatives who
don't speak any. I currently work in the 16th Arrondissement near
Trocadero and live in the 15th near Cambronne, a few stops away
from my work. This will all change shortly however as I recently
accepted a job in Luxembourg and will be moving to the far East of
France to live.
I come from Florida originally where I travel once a year to go
fishing for a few weeks.
Things I Do for Fun
I'm one of those guys with a smart TV and an interconnected home
network that serves everything I need up nicely on all devices.
Yes, it takes a bit of work to maintain but it's worth it. As a
result, I can get anything I want to watch, hear, play or read on
an electronic device from anywhere in my apartment. Yes, I know, a
bit of a geek.
I also enjoy going out on the town several times a week where I
haunt a few local bars with my former colleagues in the 15th. I
usually go out after work to a bar across the street from my
apartment with friends and then hit downtown during the weekends. I
like nearly all parts of town, some more than others of course
depending on what we are doing. Being single at present, I am known
to be a bit of a night owl and am oftentimes the host of apartment
parties that seem to go on forever into the night. Thank goodness
for cool neighbors!
As a computer savvy individual, I frequently become the go to point
for friends needing websites or help with their technology. So, I
set myself up as a web re-seller and host. I run my private
company's website on the equipment in the US and about 6 of my
close friends websites too. I'm also known to fix computers or the
My work is a big part of my life. I am a web manager for a large
non-profit organization that deals in international commerce and
business policies at the WTO, UN, World Bank, etc. I basically run
a web content management system and train employees on how to use
it while supervising a team of developers. I've worked at the UN,
for medium sized corporations in the states and as a consultant for
various projects. Strangely enough, I don't have any formal
training in web or computers - an autodidact in these fields to be
honest. My new job will be in a similar area for a large, publicly
traded biotech firm that specializes in laboratory analyses of
pretty much whatever you want.
Seeking someone to share the good times with and discover new
facets of life together. Someone to talk to, share things with and,
if things work out, come home to. If you have any particular
questions, please feel free to ask in a message. Could also use
someone to help me move :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am in the middle of moving from Paris to a small town in Eastern
France called Thionville. It's just South of the Luxembourg border
where, not coincidentally, I will be working. New job, new life,
etc. Want to be a part of it?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am also really good at cooking seafood. Not much else in the
cuisine department though I am willing to give it a shot!

Out and about with former colleagues in Paris. I normally hit up
the 15th and frequent a few bars in the area and then hit some
clubs or friends parties. Sometimes I stay home but most of the
time, I like to go out and try to meet new people.
