Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I returned to Philly about two years ago after living in Europe for
a year and a half. Since coming back, I just moved out to Ardmore,
I got a new job, and a new couch. So, I'm thrilled with the new
chapter in my life.
I'm really into craft beer and started brewing my own. It's still a
work in progress, but I just finished a great summer ale with
orange and lemon zest that I am excited about
I cook my steaks and salmon on a solid, 2” thick block of salt. And
I mean that literally. If you don’t believe me, ask. I love talking
about my salt!
I'm also a huge fan of Marlins baseball (source of my user name,
btw). I try to spread awareness of the Marlins wherever I go. Since
they're so bad, it can be easy to forget about them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an accountant, which combines the adrenaline rush of sitting in
an office all day with the non-stop thrill ride of looking at excel
spreadsheets. I’ve been doing it several years and kidding aside, I
do like it well enough.
I'm really into exercising. In the past two years, I started two
new sports: orienteering and curling:
In orienteering, you get a map, go in the woods, figure out the
course, and race to get to the end. There’s no worse feeling than
being hopelessly lost in the woods, dead tired, while the clock is
ticking by. Ok, that’s an exaggeration. But merely finishing a race
feels like such an accomplishment.
If you’re not familiar with curling, basically the object is to
slide 42 pound rocks across a sheet of ice to get your rocks closer
to a goal than the other team’s rocks. Curling is a lot harder than
it looks on tv and it’s my new goal in life to not be completely
terrible at it. I got a long way to go.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at trying something new, making a jackass of
myself, and having a good time all the while. I once learned a
foreign language by spending three months with a family that didn't
speak English. We communicated mainly with hand gestures and good
I'm mad good at Super Mario 3. I've played that game as far back as
I can remember.
I know a ridiculous amount of Simpsons trivia and quotes.

When I first met my doctor, he commented on how straight my teeth
were. Two days later, a friend of a friend made the same comment.
Good oral hygiene is no laughing matter.

1984, Freakonomics, America: The Book,
Catcher in the Rye, Ender's Game.
Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. The
dialogue in both those films is hilarious and outshines the action.
Also, The Dark Knight, Wall-E, Robocop.
Worker and Parasite:
Ellie Goulding is my new music crush. I
listen to everything. Mainly, I've been listening to Blaqk Audio,
Shiny Toy Guns, and Lana Del Rey recently. And, I feel like I need
to include Rage Against the Machine, Streetlight Manifesto and Bad
Religion for old time's sake.
Comfort food: meatloaf, pot pies, stews,

I am a remarkably picky eater. It would probably be easier for me
to list the foods I like rather than the ones I don’t. Mustard,
mayo, salad dressings, and cheese are just some of the foods I
don’t like. It’s actually why I got into cooking. I know what I
