Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lately I've been really happy about where my life has taken me.
I've surrounded myself with people who value each others insights
and abilities and who constantly push themselves and myself to do
better at everything we attempt. I'm outgoing and always down for
fun, be it a concert, dining out at a great restaurant, a long hike
in the mountains or closing out a neighborhood dive.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work in one of the top restaurants in Oakland and
loving that it's the kind of place where I'm excited about going to
work every night. I'm taking the steps necessary to found my own
nanobrewery. I'm relearning to read and play music
, learning to play the accordion
and having a ball doing both. I brew
beer in my free time, study for my
Sommelier's certification when at work, and ride my bike all over
Oakland whenever the mood takes me. I'm planning a trip to China
this winter for two weeks with a bunch of friends and I can't wait.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Beer, fixing things, going out of my way to help people close to
me, playing it off like it's no big deal.
I won't say I'm particularly great at playing music yet, but I
definitely get a little better every day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite shows on television right now include Justified
, Burn Notice
. I love that Netflix has the full
run of Star Trek TNG and DS9 so I can go back and watch them
whenever I want.
My favorite authors include Alexandre Dumas
, Elmore Leonard
and Mark Twain
. It's far from a complete
list, but those four are the ones with books I will read and
My musical tastes are pretty eclectic. Lately I've been listening
to a lot of bluegrass and folk and discovering new artists to pay
attention to, like the Dirt Daubers
and Rev. Peyton's
Big Damn Band.
I love live music and even though I rarely get
evenings off I try to catch a show whenever I can. I'm going to
this year followed immediately by Heiro Day
I love dining out, and trying new foods. I get really excited about
restaurants with talented chefs at the helm, and look forward to
tasting their cooking at the first opportunity.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good Kitchen Knives
Cast Iron Cookware
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to successfully navigate the labyrinthine permit, tax and
health regulations associated with brewery operation, and the
financial burdens that come with business operation in general.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My week is offset by two days; my Friday falls on a Sunday. On a
typical Sunday night I am winding down from a long week's worth of
work, shooting the breeze with my coworkers at Merchant's Saloon or
Heinhold's until they kick us out, or if I had the night off I'm
enjoying a burger and beer at Disco Volante and listening to
whatever live act they've got going on. Either way, I'm starting my
weekend off right.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once spent two hours programming all sorts of profanities into my
phone. Then my friends got off work and we brainstormed even more
offensive words and phrases to call each other.
