Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i'm a dancer, a baker, an architecture maker...a singer, a cook, at
the gym with a book (but not in that order and the architect gig is
the only professional one).
i stay super busy so efficiency is my m.o. i can be spontaneous but
am more prone to keeping a tight calendar so i can do more of the
things i love to do without missing a beat. as someone who highly
values his connections with others i will always give more time to
activities with friends or a special someone ;) on the infrequent
occasion i have alone time i will multi-task like a beast in order
to reserve more time for company. i am pretty high-energy (but
low-maintenance) and ride the natural highs (no substances for me -
after a pacific n.w. upbringing and a dozen years on the east coast
for school and work, i relocated to the bay last year. although I
was hesitant to move here i have fallen in love with this place and
met some amazing people. as i continue to explore the city i mostly
look forward to expanding my local family of friends because for
me, life is only as wonderful as the people you share it with. and
hopefully i'll find that special someone in the mix with whom i can
build a future. i've found that good company makes even the most
simple times magical so i'd sooner enjoy the familiar with a loved
one than run around solo, i'd rather stroll hand in hand than
frequent a club, i'd rather cook together than go out to eat
(unless its ethiopian or indian or another tricky recipe), i prefer
even a quick phone chat to any length of texting, and always seek
substance over novelty.
seems as though laughter (with a good dose of humility) is the best
way to handle life whether amused or confused, sincere or silly,
curious or confident...it keeps us grounded and connected to each
other. i even smile when i cry (which happens in all movies i love
- i'm big softy). and laughter makes the good times great and the
bad times less painful so show those pearly whites!
whether your lens reads the above as strengths or weaknesses i can
be summed up best in the words of a. burroughs, "i myself am made
entirely of flaws stitched together with good intentions."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
trying to find the balance between staying a kid forever and
growing up, between following my dreams and being responsible,
between giving back and gaining skills...but more specifically i
pay bills as an architect while spending my after hours tutoring or
making music or in dance class or baking a cake for the next bday
or cooking for folks or...always more to do than time to do it.
I’m really good at

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you are the grounded guy next door who is happy more than not,
loves to laugh but is able to cry, and can jump from silly
conversations to serious ones without avoiding important or
...you value close relationships with family and friends, and think
about others more than yourself
...you give at least a bit more to this world than you take from
...you're confident but not arrogant, honest and sensitive, driven
yet patient, and know that success can’t be measured by possessions
or a bank account
...you know that a relationship is a result of a process that can't
be forced or planned and that change, influence, trust, love, and
all other important elements of a relationship come with time,
patience, and experience
...you respect both people and planet, and want to learn more than
...and most importantly you're humble.
i’m down for new friends but ideally would find that special
someone to grow with…to build a present...and if all goes well, to
build a future…
