Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wait, you need more than that?
Hm. That's rough. Let's see-
I have been called a social butterfly, but I prefer the term,
"Collector of friends." I have friends everywhere in the world, and
a fairly diverse group in Denver. I don't mean to brag, but it's
like a resume, right? If they like me, it's possible you will,
I work a lot because I partially own the family company I work for.
Small business for the win. Down with chain liquor stores. (I'm an
importer, not a store, by the way)
I love art. It makes life better.
I like to hit up the hipster scene from time to time. I love to
garden and go to farmer's markets. I preserve/can so many pickles
and make so much pasta sauce I need lots of help eating it. (this
could be why I have so many friends.)
I love to bike casually to the store or work. Wish I had someone to
hike/camp/fish with, but don't get out on my own to do those things
much anymore. Alas. Someday.
I travel overseas once a year for work. I really love travel.
Really. Just went to Iceland and Estonia and my mind was blown.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wine importer by day. Yum.
Artist by night. Sweet.
But what am I doing? Living! Living it all!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can turn a sheep into a suit. No, really. Give me some time. I'll
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've always gotten comments on my eyes- they're pretty dang blue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
"All the Kings Men" by Robert Penn Warren is my fav literary
I also like Vonnegut, Allende, Murakami and Neil Gaiman.
I am not above Harry Potter.
Movies... I like everything except for action and horror
My favs are the Russian Ark- an art film, and Constantine which I
can watch over and over and over again, for reasons I will never
understand. I don't know if I like Miyazaki or Ozu better as
directors… but can watch any of their films on loop.
I don't own a TV, but I have seen and enjoyed shows such as Dr.
Who, Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy, The Wire…
Music? Leonard Cohen. Bob Dylan. Mumford. Sea Wolf. Bluegrass.
Art!!!!!!!!! I can like almost anything. There are a few things
that I don't "like," but can appreciate for how they make me
interact with the world and realize things about myself. Big C.
Still fan. Love Dwight William Tyron, Mucha, Kusama, Turrell,
Weiwei… I guess I like big art.
Food is easy. Everything. With all the traveling I've done I have
become very keen on high-quality food, especially Japanese, and I'm
all over the farm-to-table movement. Go farmers! My favorite
restaurant in Denver is Uncle.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pen/Pencil (That's totes one thing)
Blank-paged books (with no lines, grrrr!)
Books (with words in them)
Possibly yarn (but I could make do with a sheep or llama)
…maybe some water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The big picture. So much of life is day to day, that it's a little
hard to focus on the more important things, like how your actions
affect others and how others affect you. I am my best when I am
thinking in this manner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
making art, knitting, drinking coffee in a dark cafe, telling my
pup about my crazy week and planning alllll the things for the
