Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Retired college swimmer, part-time intellect, part-time goofball,
full-time gentleman. Current work travel: Miami and Puerto Rico
until Oct. 24th. Local friends are always welcome! I need food
Georgia boy from Atlanta that somehow ended up in Ohio and in the

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently employed full time (HigherEd) and prepping for graduate
school. Working towards a Phd in Higher Education or Educational
Policy. Ultimately, I want to become a dean or college/university
president. I'm all about education and access to higher education.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Interacting with people just comes naturally. I love speaking in
front of crowds and learning more about people that I interact with
on a daily basis. Everyone has a story that we can learn
Puns. I enjoy putting my English degree to good use and making
people laugh in the process (or at least groan because my jokes are
Navigating airports: I fly. A lot. Most people stress out over
traveling, but me? It calms me down. No joke. I used to fly home
for haircuts in college. Yeah...just ask me about it.
Working out/Fitness. You'll find me in the gym or in the pool 5-6
times a week. I'm really wanting to get into yoga, so if you want
to bring me to my first class, I would go! Just let me know, my
schedule is flexible...
...see what I said about puns? I apologize.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My composure. I always maintain a certain level of it, because
panicking accomplishes nothing. But I can guarantee that I am
taking in and analyzing everything around me.
"Dressing well is a form of good manners." -Tom Ford
Cole Haan and Brooks Brothers are my go-to. GQ guides my outfits
for the most part...except my suits don't cost $5,000 (yet?). My
Halloween costume was Christian Grey. That's all I have to say
about that, my dear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I actually enjoy cooking. Hard to believe, I know. Breakfast is my
specialty, but I can make anything if you give me a recipe or
guidelines. Still looking to improve on my grilling
Movies: I like all types of movies outside of horror, but I can
sometimes be convinced to watch one or two horror flicks...per
decade. The Great Gatsby is one of my personal favorites (both the
book and the movie).
Music: everything from rap to rock to country. I can be convinced
to listen to about anything at least once. This is why I pay
monthly for Spotify. Worth every penny. Also I challenge you to
find another person who has been to a Jay-Z concert and multiple
Luke Bryan/Jason Aldean concerts. Yep. That happened.
Books: I was an English major. Literature concentration. I'm sure
you see where I'm going with this.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Close friends and family
My iPhone (I'm convinced I could take over the world on my iPhone
if I wanted)
The ability to travel (I'm an "airline brat")
My car + radar detector
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to change the world for the better. You know, nothing too
How I want to be an amazing husband and father one day. I'm a
romantic to the core, so things like that make me smile a
My mom. Full disclosure (and something I am not too sensitive to
talk about): my mom died the summer before my senior year of
college. She bravely battled Ovarian cancer for 5 long years. She
meant everything to me and I am determined to honor her memory by
being the man she wanted me to become.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have a typical Friday night. I like to be spontaneous, so
whatever I feel like doing is what usually happens.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm smarter than most people.
Or maybe I'm just really good at using Google.
I have a weakness for teachers. It takes a very special and
dedicated person to go into education, specifically K-12.
