Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So hey. I'm Adam. How do you really summarize yourself in a little
text box? Not an easy task. I'll probably leave something out, but
let's give it a go.
I'm an fairly active guy that likes to keep myself and the people
in my life laughing (either with or at me, I'm fine with either). I
am usually teetering on the fine line between being witty and being
I like to keep busy, both at work and at home, which means the lull
periods in my life tend to drive me a little crazy. With that being
said, I can totally appreciate a quiet day to myself every so
I really don't take myself seriously, and I'm often flippant, which
tends to irritate the serious people. I do, however, have zero
qualms about standing up for myself or for my friends when the
situation calls for it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in the television industry on a show for the Discovery
Channel about fishermen in Newfoundland. I manage footage and
troubleshoot problems that editors have.
On the side, I'm also the narrator of the same show, and will often
hear my own voice coming from rooms that I'm not in. None of my
friends can watch the show because hearing me on television weirds
them out too much.
Being a big fan of keeping active, I get most of my exercise from
playing sports. I've wasted far too much money on gym memberships
that sat around gathering dust. In the winter, I played a ton of
hockey (thrice a week) and now that the nice weather's arrived, I'm
playing hockey, softball, dodgeball, and football. It's a lot, but
I'm having a blast.
During the winter, a few buddies and I coach minor hockey at the AA
level back in our hometown. It's kind of cool to give something
back to the community, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't get
really competitive around playoff time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm pretty good at diffusing tension by doing or saying something
silly. I don't mind telling a bad joke to get a reaction,
especially if it takes people's minds off of whatever's causing the

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's likely my voice. I have the tendency to tell stories with
silly accents, goofy voices, and strange intonations. It's actually
how I landed my narration gig. Evidently, being ridiculous DOES
I have the neatest printing of any male that you've ever met, and
I'm damn proud of it.
In the summer, I'll be the only person in the entire group who is
missing a tan. Thanks, Irish genes - thanks a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Here's a smattering of things I like.
Books: "The Millennium Trilogy" by Steig
Larsson/Game of Thrones series. Anything by Mira Grant. Most
dystopian fiction, mystery novels, and any kind of hard sci-fi. I
enjoy reading a lot, and I do it very, very quickly.
Movies: Hot Fuzz, Cabin in the Woods, Aliens
TV Shows: Person of Interest, House of Cards, Game
of Thrones, Walking Dead, Sherlock (BBC), Star Trek: TNG, Brooklyn
Music: Foo Fighters, Black Keys, Fun.
Food: Mushrooms are the worst. I will refuse to
even touch them. On the other hand, I have an unhealthy enjoyment
of asparagus. Both cooking it, and saying the word. I like making
stir-fries a lot. Roasting veggies is usually tasty. Not sure if I
could live without chicken.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Music, especially on my commute to work.
2) Hockey, for without it, I'd have to vent my frustrations in a
far less productive manner.
3) Pockets, because I am not nearly European enough to carry a
4) Coffee, since I am probably the world's worst morning
5) A thick case for my phone, as I have the tendency to toss it up
in the air when I'm bored or thinking.
6) My friends and family, and yes - I'm aware that they are not
"things", especially by most human rights definitions, but I would
be truly lost without them being awesome during all the right
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Usually I've got a lengthy to-do list in my mind or a set of goals
that I want to achieve for each day, and I'm thinking about those,
and how I can get as much done as possible. When I'm truly
motivated, I'm often able to accomplish a lot.
I keep thinking that I'm not very well traveled and then I remember
that I've been all over the United States and Canada... which I
think counts. Next on the list would be exploring my Irish/German
roots in Europe, or maybe a cross-country road trip that I've been
trying to talk some of my buddies into.
I haven't yet fully processed the death of Grooveshark. I know that
it happened, but I'm still in denial. Dammit.
Things that I can do to get me more steps on my Fitbit. Yeah, I've
become THAT guy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Provided I have the energy after a week of work, I'm probably
making plans to hit up a pub, or packing up the car to head to
someone's cottage. If not, then I'm likely catching up on any
missed television or new Netflix arrivals, while making plans for

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think that the bottom of the ocean is a terrifying, terrifying
place. Sea lampreys are the scariest bloody things ever. Like, why
DO THEY NEED TO EXIST. SERIOUSLY. Look it up on Google and tell me
I'm wrong! Yeesh.
I read an article yesterday informing me that there was a town in
Alaska that had lamprey eels spontaneously rain from the sky. I'm
pretty sure that I've had that nightmare before. Ugh.
I'm about to leave my roommates behind and get my own place for the
very first time, and while I'm pretty stoked about it, there's a
part of me that's really scared about the financial viability of
doing so in a contract-based industry. I'm banking on the risk
being worth the reward, as I've wanted this for a very long time.
