Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm probably always reading something (except when I'm riding my
bike, eyes on the road.) newspapers, magazines, blogs, tweets,
I work in journalism/social media but I still send postcards, and
letters. I use emoticons but send thank-you notes.
Things that pique my interest (well more than 8):
• Journalism and the news (it's my job and I love it)
• Books (and figuring out if they're going to be around... short
answer yes, but...)
• A nerdy sports fan... so more into wacky stories and history of
sports than stats.
• Food and stories about food. I cook fairly often and I like to
feed my friends...
• Sometimes a snappy dresser, decent cook and knows how to iron his
• Indie music
• Booze (Craft Beer and well-mixed cocktails... although I'm
comfortable bending elbows at a dive bar drinking a beer and/or
having a pickleback)
• Running (clears my head. Finished my first marathon)

Saying hi to dogs I meet on the street.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping a conversation going, getting better at cooking, singing in
front of a bunch of people I don't know who probably aren't
listening (karaoke), helping tourists, writing headlines. Minding
