Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm very new to town. I've been on an extended road trip for the
past six months and have landed here to see what all the hubbub is
I have a few passions that have brought me to this fine
southwestern city. I love music. I have studied music since the
fourth grade. Back home I spend a lot of my time practicing,
rehearsing performing and listening. I had a lot of fun and made
some very close friends in the process.
I also love cycling. The main point of this extended journey I find
myself on was to ride some of the best mountain bike trails in the
country. It's been a lot of fun and I hope to find many cycling
friends here in Austin!
I feel like I have a pretty easy-going personality. I'm pretty
introverted. I'm more than willing to spend the energy to be social
for the right occasion but it's hard for me to be super social all
the time. I've noticed that I tend to prefer activities that are a
bit more one on one. A night snuggled on the couch watching movies
or a day spent hiking or biking somewhere or an afternoon drinking
mimosas in the sun always sounds great to me. I can definitely cut
loose and party though, so don't be afraid to hit me up if that's
what you're in to. Like I said, I'm pretty easy going and down for
whatever most of the time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Like I mentioned earlier, I'm giving Austin a close look. I've been
traveling for the better part of a year and have stopped in to
build up some savings and see what this place is all about. I
recently got a really awesome job installing solar panels on
expensive houses. I'm really excited to be working in that field
and hopefully one day I want to start my own company, just not
right now. I can only embark on one crazy adventure at a time. :)
I’m really good at

I am very red. My skin, hair, face are very red. People are always
telling me to put sunscreen on or to take care of my sunburn even
when I haven't been in the sun much. The next thing people usually
say about me is that I'm a nice guy. I try to treat everyone with
kindness. I find it very hard to be rude even when I try (which is

I like sci-fi novels. Right now I'm reading The Foundation by Issac
Other favorites authors I have are:
Orsen Scott Card
Robert Pirsig (Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is my
favorite book of all time)
I'd say my favorite kind of movies are spy thrillers, but I'm not
too picky when it comes to movies.
Some of my favorite directors are:
My Musical taste is pretty eclectic. Since I'm a horn player I'm
partial to anything that has horns in it. I'm really into afrobeat
at the moment but I'm also passionate about New Orleans brass
bands, old school funk and soul, jazz, and samba. I don't follow
top 40 radio at all really. I'll probably recognize a song if you
sang it to me but I wouldn't be able to tell you who wrote it or
Lately I've mostly been listening to podcasts. I really like
Radiolab, Freakonomics, Wits Radio, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me,
Afropop Worldwide and The Dirtbag Diaries.

A bot-fly maggot once called my abdomen his home. He lived in my

eviction notice. His name is Theodore.
