Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born in Carlsbad, New Mexico, moved to Valley Forge,
Pennsylvania, while in school. This gave me an exotic PA / NM
accent. I attended college in Boston without picking up another
I moved to the Bay area 26 years ago and recently moved from S.F.
to Oakland. I love taking road trips and international travel is
something I never regret doing.
I like when people tell me about the things that they are
passionate about and seeing their happiness in just talking about
I'm not a "foodie", but am a skilled eater and drinker. I do cook
but I'm probably better helping with a repair while someone else
I love being in the ocean and surfing in Marin and Hawaii.
I find humor everywhere and use it. I enjoy going out and staying
in. I like having guests, reading, listening to music, making
things, movies and TV, live music and comedy, performing music,
fixing up my place.
I work in the Electronics and Music fields. I have degrees in both,
however playing drums since age ten and it's what I do best.
I have been "used" and I'm in excellent condition. I offer a 50
year warranty so act now and avoid future regret.
People who say on-line dating sucks, well, I'll bet they suck!
After dating for a year on this site and having fun, I met a woman
and we dated for about a year. We have just celebrated our first
wedding anniversary. We honeymooned in Vietnam for three weeks and
we traveled to France for three weeks and I met the rest of her
family. I wasn't really looking to get married but I have waited
along time to finally get married and I like it. So, keep on
meeting new people and have fun...you never know who you'll meet!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have lived an exciting and eventful life so far without ever
being seriously injured or arrested. I love playing music while
watching people enjoying themselves. My main focus is doing what I
need to do in order to be very happy and be able to share this
feeling with others. The rest I will save for later.
Awards and Achievements:
I may have already won the "Publishers ClearingHouse" sweepstakes!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping people on their toes and making them laugh. Not holding a
grudge. Driving. Being there for people when I'm able to help.
Being creative and self reliant. Adding my opinion (and being
correct) while reminding others that It's OK to disagree (I have
Coming up with new and different things to do for fun.
Striking up a conversation with strangers much different from
Playing the drums (and not bothering others while doing so).
I'm glad there's no "I'm really bad at" confession list.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm always reading a book. Everyone likes movies. Can't name all my
favorite music artists but among them are REM and Queen.
I'll eat anything cooked except: pets, veal, brussel sprouts,
okera. I love pork ribs, nice scotch, beer & wine. I like retro
TV and PBS shows. Live music is always the best.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
All the people who I love, food to eat and money to purchase it
with. Good health.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Improving myself and my relationships.
Planning my next move.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
When I'm out, I enjoy things such as seeing live music and comedy,
getting together with old friends and making new friends. I'll stop
into my sister's bar/restaurant in Alameda and I also like going to
I also like staying in and having friends over, listening to music,
reading, making and fixing things. I enjoy using my juicer and
blender to make fruit drinks (sometimes with rum) or vegetable
juices (no rum). I like watching movies or TV (PBS is my favorite).
I'm always fixing up my place.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In grade school, I teased and was a little mean to the girls that I
liked. As an adult, I know that this is wrong......and I'm working
