Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm a 40 year old professional photographer. I moved to the Bay
area from Austin about 6 years ago and things have settled down to
the point that I finally have time to meet some new people. Hmmm,
my self summary...I was born in a small town in East Texas,
graduated high school in a class of 8 people. (I did indeed say 8,
it was a very small town.) I attended the University of Texas at
Austin, I taught high school theatre for a year and I've been a
photographer ever since. I do love photography, but I only speak at
length about it to my students, so I won't be chattering about F
stops and shutter speeds at dinner. I love to tell stories, and
tend to have one for almost any occasion. I eat out quite a bit and
I am always looking for new restaurants.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm still growing my photography business in the Bay Area. Things
are going good though, I just did a big seminar at the largest
camera store in northern California on a new kind of instant film.
I'm teaching an at risk student for a local nonprofit, and
hopefully paying customers will keep calling.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I pride myself on my photography, and I'm probably better than the
average bear at shooting pool. I also hope I tell a good story now
and then. I used to live next to a massage school and took lessons
on and off for two years, so I give a great backrub.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People figure out quickly that I'm comfortable in conversation with
almost anyone. I also hope people notice that I make an effort to
listen to what other people have to say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite book is Neuromancer by William Gibson. I love me some
speculative fiction. Favorite movie, The Blues Brothers. I like all
kinds of music, from glitch to rap to Cajun to whatever.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cameras, my dog, good food, Netflix, my blog and my friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about my artwork, my business, but honestly, I think a lot
about having as many good times as I can before I die.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I try to go do something different every weekend, a chill club,
movie, or just a new place to eat. As I always say, nothing
exciting ever happens when your alone in your house.
