Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from Miami, FL (I find it incredibly weird that I
have to specify which Miami I am from in this city) and have since
found myself living in St. Louis, Copenhagen, New York City and
most recently I have moved to Chicago.
I've been learning/doing architecture for 10 years now and it is
both my career and my passion. I enjoy the complex problems of
design, exploring the possibilities of ideas and tirelessly
pursuing thoughtful solutions. It should be noted that for some
reason my best ideas and solutions come when I’m being a smart ass
and not being terribly serious (odd right?) I imagine that this
pairs well with the fact that I’m also an avid appreciator of
clever and interesting wording usually found in some good banter or
typically an episode of Arrested Development.
Despite being somewhat of a nerd (especially when it comes to
architecture) I am also pretty heavily invested in watching and
playing sports. I was a swimmer and water polo player which makes
me love being in the water. I’m also a big fan of anything
University of Miami (FL).
I have a tendency to say yes to thing despite not fully knowing the
full circumstances. This has led to me interning in Dubai for a
summer despite at the time not knowing where that was and hiking
the Colorado Trail for a month with a friend.
For some reason I tend to be surrounded by people way smarted than
me and try to understand what they are doing/studying despite
usually comprehending 1/3 of what they are talking about. Amongst
many things, this has led to my friend getting his PHD in physics
to send me his thesis abstract every few months which I attempt to
read and subsequently break my brain temporarily.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently an architectural designer doing healthcare design
and working towards becoming a licensed architect.
I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me

Probably my hair. It can get fairly long and I average 1-7 cowlicks
a day despite my strong attempts to prevent them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I tend to enjoy clever and odd books and shows, this includes
reading anything by Christopher Moore, Carl Haaisen or Douglas
Coupland as well as watching Arrested Development, Community and
My musical tastes span a wide range and tend to align with whatever
activity I am doing while listening. That being said my all time
favorites bands are Mae, the Beatles, Something Corporate / Jack's
I'll try almost anything but am an avid fan of basic food done
right and/or creatively (burgers, pizza, etc.) I love good ramen.
if you are unaware that such a thing exists, I will show you where
to find it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What will be my next design project
Whether I should grow my hair out for Locks of Love again
If Billy Mays had an internet dating profile, what would it be like
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies between cooking and watching a movie or beer/food with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not ever entirely sure what I'm supposed to do or say. I'm
mainly taking educated guesses and am somewhat terrified at how
often they work out.
