Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Moved to DSM from DC just over 6 months ago. I enjoy watching
movies and TV, reading, traveling, live music, politics, visiting
museums, eating out, playing tennis and watching a number of
sports, and spending time with friends and family. Thanks to school
and work I know people all over the country; I enjoy visiting them
when I can.
I generally like to do casual things. Going out is great; but I'm
equally happy hanging out at home and having a quiet night. I love
my job, but I don't work all the time. In my spare time, I coach a
Little League baseball team in the spring. It's a blast.
What else? I'm funny, reliable, and smart. Not a bad combo!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Saving the world one day at a time, and trying to enjoy myself on
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a fun and down to earth guy. Also trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not sure - nobody ever tells me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like some fiction, more serious books like The Namesake or legal
/ spy thrillers. Lots of nonfiction, just about anything - lately I
keep reading history. The New Yorker.
Movies - I like a little bit of everything - foreign films,
blockbusters, even the adult / kid friendly Disney / Pixar
cartoons. Recent movies I've liked - American Hustle, Her.
TV - Sports. Mad Men, The Americans, The Good Wife, The Newsroom.
Almost anything Sorkin. Was strangely addicted to CSI Miami - maybe
because I lived there for 2 years. Homeland.
Music - Springsteen far and above anything else. Also southern rock
/ alt country like Drive By Truckers or softer folk / country like
Lucinda Williams. U2, REM, lots of 80's stuff. It should have
guitars, whether electric or acoustic. Saw Gillian Welch and David
Rawlings live a couple of years ago - brilliant!
Food - I like almost anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Close friends and family.
2. Feeling good about the work I do.
3. Fun vacations!
4. Reading a good book.
5. Morning coffee.
6. Boston Red Sox.
7. The Internet (it's a series of tubes, you know).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work / life balance, the sorry state of our political system, where
I'm headed on my next trip, why I could be the Red Sox general
manager, moving to San Diego to escape polar vortexes, why so many
people keep doing the same old things and expect different results.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes out to low key dinner and/or drinks with friends, other
times at home recharging my batteries for the weekend. Or maybe off
to visit friends, or at a concert.
