Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m an upstate New Yorker turned Clevelander. I’m enjoying the
Cleveland revival and like to get downtown to check out a new
restaurant, see a show or visit the 9th street pier when I
I generally eat healthy and am somewhat active, enjoying the
outdoors. Running, the gym and boxing are my main focuses right
now, with cycling added to the mix when the weather turns.
I’ll choose reading over watching TV, but I can get sucked into
Netflix pretty easily, though not as easily as I’m sucked into the
internet. I’ve got a soft spot for animals and when one of my goals
is to dive with sharks.
YouTube has helped foster my D.I.Y. tendencies, from fixing my car
to repairing my television. I’m semi-anxious for the next project I
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Killing it at my job. I'm not exactly saving lives or bettering
society with my profession, but I like what I do and push myself to
succeed. Unfortunately, this means I've probably raised your

Trying out new activities. Snowboarding this winter and paddle
boarding in the summer.
Promising myself that 2015 is the year I actually use my scuba
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not following recipes to make food extra delicious
Making people laugh
Dropping my phone and it not breaking. (no case) I’ve dropped it
down stairs and it is still unscathed. I'm not sure where to go
from here to test my skills.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Television: Louie, Walking Dead, Deadliest Catch (I'm convinced I
should be a ship captain), Cleveland Sports.
Music: Punk, Grunge, Hardcore. Lately been listening to Bon Iver
and the National though, not sure what that is about.
Food: Indian, Middle-Eastern, Mexican, Thai and Sushi are some of
my favorites, but I'm down for whatever. I do like trying new
restaurants and styles of food. I'd pick local over a chain, if
given the choice.
Books: Bukowski, Burroughs, Hemingway, Nabokov, McCarthy, Vonnegut
and a whole lot of science fiction and fantasy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Some sort of exercise - I get antsy if I'm inactive for too long
(too long being 2+ days or so)
4. My phone
5. Good food and wine
I mean, I'm sure I could survive without these, but sweet Jesus, it
wouldn't be fun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What activity am I going to try out next?

What's my next series on Netflix to watch?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depending on the weekend, either with my kids or not. If not, then
going out to a show (comedy, play, whatever sounds good) trying a
new restaurant or staying in with a book or Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I savor the feeling that I'm in the 1% when I throw away pennies.
