Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Where shall we begin...?
I'm a bit of an old soul, a music history nerd, quick with a joke
or pun, am organized beyond belief and extremely driven. I might be
one of calmest people you'll meet, yet always motivated by
something. After spending time elsewhere in BK, I moved to Park
Slope, and my time here has been amazing so far; I suppose the feel
of the area has an appeal to the New Englander in me?
My family is awesome and we are all really close. I love to cook
and have picked up some awesome recipes over the years. I am a big
believer in karma.
The interesting bits:
Knowing random factoids is a specialty of mine. I have been in
bands since I was 15, and playing instruments since before then (at
one point, I was even "Ringo" in a Beatles tribute band).
I really am a good storyteller; remind me to tell you about the
time I ran into Jon Stewart, or when I was mistaken for a
And I am completely honest and open. Like, why am I here you ask?
I've been single for a while now, I've grown immensely during that
stretch, and gotten to the point where I know what I want.
Hopefully you do too. Life is really awesome, but I want someone to
share it with. I am over the casual dating thing and realize that
this is probably the best way to meet someone who shares these same
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a major television network as a media management
supervisor in content distribution. It's hard work and I put in a
lot of hours every week. You can "thank" me for being a purveyor of
some pretty terrible teen television.
This amongst other things of course.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Managing to compare everything in life to something that happened
on Seinfeld (or Curb).
Knowing what time it is with no clocks nearby.
Being generally affable.
Walking a fine line between introvert and extrovert.
Being quite verbose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Aldous Huxley. George Orwell. C.G. Jung. Chuck Klosterman. I have
read too many rock biographies, yet am always looking for more.
Various books on Eastern religions and philosophy. And what might
be my favorite- The Sheltering Sky.
Anchorman. Back to the Future. Dazed and Confused.
Seinfeld. How I Met Your Mother. Arrested Development. the
Beatles, Pink Floyd, Hendrix, King Crimson, Rush, Byrds, Neil
Young, Police, Zeppelin, Radiohead, Zombies, Dungen, Tame Impala,
Oasis, etc etc, and older jazz (Coltrane!).
I mostly eat healthy, as we're only given one body in this lifetime
(ie- a regular at farmers markets and Whole Foods), although, you
can put pineapple or coconut in basically anything and I'll eat it.
(Actually, that's a lie. I may love coconut, but I hate coconut
water.) I cook a lot. And I have quite the affinity for
Not to mention that I love a good scotch.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Notebook for writing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever I am in the midst of writing.
How Popeye cartoons were really just pro spinach propaganda.
My next meal.
Names for my hypothetical future dog (Scooby being the current
(In my best Seinfeld voice) Drawing parallels between online dating
and shopping; sure it's convenient and easy, but it's also easy to
get things that don't look like the picture, don't quite feel how
expected, or just disappear in the mail. Shopping in person, while
requiring more effort, allows you to browse and try before you buy.
Both have their benefits. Because really, aren't we all just
looking for the proper fit?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing a gig or relaxing from the exhausting work week.
