Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i'm a laid back, positive guy who loves to enjoy life and share
good times with good people. i used to think meeting people via
websites/apps was the weirdest, but like most of us on here, have
realized it's a great way to meet interesting awesome people who
you otherwise would have never come across. my existence is fairly
undocumented, as i barely ever take pictures or find myself around
picture takers... not the easiest task finding some to put up on
here. i'll be sure to take some shirtless selfies to upload
i came out here for grad school and am now focused on building my
post-school career, but i also don't take myself too seriously and
just like to live in the moment and have appreciate my life and the
great people and things in it. my biggest fear is that one day i'll
look back and regret not taking advantage of my youth, so i
actively work to never let that happen.
i feel pretty confident describing myself as intelligent, positive
and optimistic, mindful, funny (dry/probably weird sense of humor
and sarcastic, but in a good/playful/not an asshole way),
persevering (been through a whole bunch of challenging and
influential life experiences to get where i am now), and
drama-free. i'm also very into eating clean/healthfully (therefore
am into cooking) and doing outdoorsy/active things. thinking for
myself and avoiding being part of the herd is a constant.
CA isn't my home (big surprise), i grew up in dallas and lived in
wonderful fantastic austin for a long time before moving out here a
few years ago. i'm digging it here more and more, but my heart is
in austin and i'll like you a lot if you also have a connection to
or love for it. while i'm contently and pretty firmly in LA now,
the reality is i have no idea what the future holds regarding what
where i'll live... so while i'm fortunate enough to be in this
crazy and interesting city, i'm always in explore mode trying to
see and experience it and the surrounding area, and excited to meet
more interesting folks through here and around town.
if you think we'd have fun connecting, don't hold back from
shooting me a message. i'd love to hear from you
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
living it... working hard to make it fulfilling and rewarding;
trying to spend more time outside and riding my bike; exploring LA
and the west coast; making new interesting connections; having a
good time and being happy; avoiding twitter
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
seeing the best in and connecting with people quickly and easily;
befriending animals; laying in the sun/hiking
mountains/appreciating nature; drums of any variety, ultimate
frisbee, and basketball; throwing things in trash cans from far
distances (one of my top totally useless talents); being driven but
not taking life too seriously; making people laugh; time traveling;
cooking/eating clean and healthy
The first things people usually notice about me

that they feel positive and comfortable around me, and they're
probably laughing more than usual. my sultry green eyes that sing
like a sun-bathed meadow and my sweet southern drawl
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
i blew a reading gasket in grad school, have gradually been getting
back into reading for pleasure. not really feeling making a list
for this one, but i always love suggestions.
my movies/shows interests are all over the place. to name a few
genres, i love comedies (if you like wet hot american summer and
zoolander we'll get along well), documentaries, thrillers, and have
been nerding out on sci-fi recently.
again, all over the board with music taste. various electronic
genres, some rock and classic rock (but definitely not all... led
zeppelin good, ac/dc bad), a little folk and bluegrass, talented
(not radio) hip hop, classical, most of what comes on kcrw in the
evenings... and as a drummer, anything captivating
i'm vegetarian who is pretty health conscious (both for myself and
animals/the earth mama) so i love meeting people with a similar
perspective, but i don't discriminate - i like knowing all kinds of
people with different interests and tastes. my family and many
close friends eat everything, so i'm used to and around meat often.
i really do love that veg lyfe though.
overall i think all of these are way better to discover about each
other in person
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
people i care about; sunshine; eating clean and staying active;
getting to travel domestically or internationally every now and
then; kcrw and npr when i'm driving; you <3
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
food; career; experiencing/exploring LA; living a fulfilling life;
women; traveling; animals; being a good person (hopefully); the old
woman next door and her 25 ferrel cats
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging with good people; chilling out and watching a movie; having
an occasional beer at the bar; finding/watching music; busting
moves (way more likely in a living room party or at a
show/festival/ecret outdoor spot than at a bar/club); something
majestically random, last minute, and poorly planned; looking
forward to whatever hike + beach combo is happening that weekend
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

of everyone who has read this, you're my favorite
You should message me if

for okc so i'm just being open-minded and and seeing where things
go, be they casual/short-term or longer-term dating. honestly, if

down to make new interesting friends through here
