Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in Austin, Brooklyn, and now Echo Park, which makes it
sound like I'm checking off a list of hipster enclaves. Perhaps
I've been subconsciously trying to cancel out the first 17 years I
spent in San Antonio, the capital of lameness. (Go Spurs!)
I'm half-Mexican by birth but was raised a gringo. Don't speak
Spanish and Mexican food gives me gas. Basically a Mexican't. Just
glad I got my German/Irish father's height. I tower over my Mexican
side of the family. Last time I visited them for Christmas,
everyone said it looked like I got taller. I think they just got
I take LONG walks through the city. Echo Park, Downtown, Chinatown,
Little Tokyo, Silverlake. I stop and take the time to smell the
neuroses. I'll head down that terrifying alley if it looks like
there's a brilliant dash of street art hidden back there.
I love biking, hiking, camping, and getting lost. I'm way behind on
watching movies and TV shows because whenever I have time to sit
still, all I want to do is read (both trashy thrillers and heady
philosophy) and write (scripts, poems, songs, bad puns).
I've fallen in love with LA over my 14 years here, although the one
thing I miss is thunderstorms. I'm convinced that even if someone
hates LA, I can show them parts that would make them love it, too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've spent this year losing 40 pounds. I'm in the best shape of my
life. I feel 10 years younger. My friends are amazed at how much
better I look.
I write jokes for the radio and work in reality TV post production.
Current gig is a political documentary for the Esquire Network.
(Yeah, I didn't realize there was an Esquire Network, either.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Storytelling. (Update: Won Moth Storyslam on 2/17/15).
I'm really excellent at fifth dates -- so even if our first four
dates suck, you need to stick with me, because damn, that fifth
date is going to rock hard.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've always thought brown eyes were supposed to be boring, but I've
gotten compliments on mine. Also, I have nice lips. My screenname
is based off my (unwanted) nickname in high school. It was used as
an insult back then, so I'm taking back the night, in a roundabout
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm an old school Stephen King fan. Just got his new one, Revival.
Other favorites include John Steinbeck, John Updike, Paul Auster,
Philip Roth, Jonathan Franzen, Michael Chabon, Haruki Murakami,
Bret Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk.
Only see about one or two a month. I like sci-fi and arthouse.
Loved Birdman. Greatly enjoyed 1/3 of Interstellar.
Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Meet the
Rock and/or Roll.
Eating healthy now. Brussel sprouts ftw.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A creative outlet. An electrical outlet. Outlet malls. Inlets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to get you out of my dreams and into my car.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a comedy/art/music show or, most likely, a birthday party. Maybe
going to bed early so I can get up at 8am Saturday to hike with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I enjoy romance and I've had a couple of great love affairs, but I
would probably be just as happy if I end up being single for the
rest of my life. That's how much I enjoy my own company (SPOILER
ALERT: I'm an only child.) I kind of relate to Burgess Meredith in
