Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Spent a while working as a history teacher for a middle school in
Philly. I loved my students, but struggled with parents and
administration. I'm now working for a professional sports league
based here in Philly. It allows me to spend a huge amount of my
time with hilarious, generally happy people, which I'm really
I'm very social, and have the ability to talk your ear off without
really saying much about myself... blame it on a former history
teacher's love of facts. I often use humor as a defense or when I'm
nervous, but on the plus side, that means that I rarely take myself
too seriously, and I'm always willing to laugh. I'm not always
aware of what I want, but I like to think I'm self aware about what
I don't know, and I'm trying to figure it out as I go.
Currently... this makes me
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, working out, hanging out with my cat and spending time
with my friends... I try to be up for anything, so if you want to
go climbing, boxing, deep sea diving.... let's give it a try?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trivia. I've somehow amassed a really large and eclectic knowledge
base of useless facts. I'm always down for Quizzo.
Loyalty. My friends matter a great deal to me, and I'll happily run
naked through a blizzard for them. (Or, you know, just to say I

At 6'6", the most common opening comment from new people is "You're
really tall." I also have a really low voice that can fill a room
pretty easily. Equally useful for teaching and sporting
The beard also gets a fair amount of comments.

I really hate this question, as the answers are constantly
Reading for pleasure is something I only really have time for when
traveling. Recently I've just finished "Supergirls" by Mike Marsh
and "Midnight in Europe" by Alan Furst. Both of which are
interesting, and I'd recommend both to anyone.
Movies completely depend on my mood, but I will watch anything and
probably enjoy it. I just like the stories. Star Wars, Dumb and
Dumber, Godfather, The Rock, Stepbrothers, Brave Little Toaster are
a few consistent favorites.
When it comes to TV, I will give any show a chance, but some recent
favorites are Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Walking Dead and The
Following. All-time favorite might be The West Wing, although I
didn't appreciate it until I watched it again after college. I also
watch a bunch of shitty comedies and hour long dramas on USA.
Music is all about mood and I like most genres. I really enjoy
concerts, from big ones at fairgrounds/arenas to tiny ones at Union
Transfer or The Tower. I went to Firefly festival last summer and
lost my mind, so if they were there, I most likely enjoy their
Food? Really? I'll eat anything. Except raw tomatoes and
mushrooms... it's a consistency thing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Jeans in the spring/fall, sweatpants/hoodies in the winter, flip
flops, my car, my laptop, my phone. My physical needs are pretty
boring I guess. My conversational ones are less so. Let's just get
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Recently, I'm concerned with my next steps in life, whether it be
professional, romantic or beverage related...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully out in the city with a beer or 5. I'm lucky to have a
bunch of close friends in the area who are equally awesome at
"important" conversation and drinking. Don't ask which we do more

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're passionate about something, you're eager to laugh, and you
enjoy making all sorts of otherwise routine activities fun. Or, you
know, you need help reaching something on a top shelf.
You're a feminist. People passionate about equality are hot.
I think the best way I've seen this put on here is: "It's probably
best if your favorite flavor isn't vanilla"
I'll use this as a chance to say that if your softball team needs a
