Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A few random thoughts about this:
This whole thing feels like an exercise in a humble/brag.
I've been accused of being an intelligent and clever man. I'm a big
reader (about a book a week) and a fan of paper books rather than a
kindle or nook.
Life is too serious to take it seriously. I'm a fan of the funny.
Sitcoms, funny movies, and live comedy shows are typically all
"Aces" in my book.
I grew up in Illinois, lived in Texas for just under a decade, and
moved to LA about 9 years ago.
I became an uncle for the first time about a year ago. I'm going to
spoil that child rotten! (That's the picture of the baby I'm
holding in my profile.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working as a Construction Project Manager for a retail
shoe chain; making sure they have good looking stores to sell their
I also take photos as a hobby.
Additionally, I run tech for shows around town. Lights and sound
usually, but some set work as well. All three of my sisters acted
growing up, so I spent a lot of time playing with the back stage
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Stuff and nonsense.
I can do most things fairly well and a few things extremely
Karaoke for example, I tend to rock the place (you might have seen
me sometime at the Gaslight or Brass Monkey).
Spelling on the other hand, is something I don't do well. More
often then not, I feel I've lucked into the correct spelling when
I'm writing something. Thank you spellcheck!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height and my red hair and I've now been told several times that
I look better than my pictures. (Maybe because I've dropped 25
pounds since some of them were taken.)

One of my favorite live shows to go to is called A Drinking Game.
They have actors read a classic 80's (ish) movie script and you're
given a series of keywords to drink on. The actors are also
drinking and they have more "drink" words than the audience, so by
the end of the 2 hour show, it's gotten more than a little goofy!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Does Technology count as one thing?
1. A good book to read
5. Someone to talk to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Working through problems, both my problems and the problems faced
by those around me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the gym, at a show, at a movie, watching stand-up, or just
trying to relax after a tough week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I took ballet classes in high school.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're funny and clever.
This was apparently too broad. Funny and clever are absolutely
essential, but perhaps a few more descriptors are in order.
Your crazy doesn't exceed a 7 on a scale of 1-10 (we all have our
little moments of crazy, just please, not too much) ;)
