Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to travel,
Well, maybe "travel" isn't the right word. I love to live and work
in new places. Preferable places I'm unfamiliar with. I've done
some traveling in my life and to me that essentially means being a
tourist in a bunch of different places until your visa expires or
your money runs out.
To me, living and working somewhere offers much more insight into
the culture, language, & people of the area. So, that's exactly
what I've done for the past several years. I've lived in the
Philippines, Thailand, and China; and I have to say it's been a
learning experience. Sometimes things are good, sometimes they're
bad, but so far I've been able to avoid any serious
So, if you're in my area and you think we might get along, I'd love
to hang out sometime.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Like many farangs, I'm teaching English and trying to wrap my head
around the language & learn as much as possible.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, between stints as an ajarn or lao shi respectively, I've been
a brewer at a small start up brewery. So, my fermentation skills
are pretty top notch.
I went to school for non-profit stuff, so I'm pretty knowledgable
Aaaaand, I'd say I'm a decent writer and an all around decent dude.
I can be fun to hang out with sometimes, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, right now I'm a long-haired bearded lumberjack. But, since
beards aren't cool in Thailand I'm getting a shave & haircut
pretty soon. So, the first thing people probably notice about me is
that I'm a farang.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A little peace of mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
That is TBA at the moment. Updates to come.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is the part where people generally start getting all sexy.
It's not sexy time right now, sexy time is later.
