Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**update** I'm in Nicaragua on a grant till about Feb 2015, if that
doesn't faze you or you have a lot frequent flyer miles then read
I spent most of last several years in Latin America where I was
involved in non profit/health care work. I am active (hiking,
surfing, biking, soccer, lifting weights) and I love books and
rootsy music (rock, reggae, bluegrass, world/latin, indie). I play
music (guitar, bass, ukulele) for fun; I played in bands for years
and got most of the wildness out of my system.
Via the influence of my European parents I grew up cooking,
gardening, and tinkering around with carpentry. My background
limited my exposure to American culture - minimal malls,
microwaves, or conversations about celebrities.
I have ambition though its mostly focused on developing depth in
relationships, skills, and experiences.
I'm from DC, I love east coasters - I enjoy dark humor. I am
affectionate & loyal, I don’t flirt. If I am with you, you have
my undivided attention. I'm ready/happy to give that to someone
My gal shares at least some of my interests, pluses include: east
coaster or foreigner, (healthy) curves, a curious mind, and if you
play an instrument or sing then I love you already.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in health care where I help patients reverse chronic disease
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a friend, an uncle, a brother, a son and making homemade
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My taste in music is similar to my taste in food - minimal
processing, some recent favorites are Amy Winehouse, Wilco, and
Manu Chao. I love reading, Jared Diamond, Steven Ambrose, Tim
Robbins, I.B. Singer, Kurt Vonnegut, Edgar Allen Poe, NYT, Malcom
Gladwell, Andrew Weil, Paul Farmer, & plenty more
health/science titles. I'm not big on TV but I love Louis C.K., and
Movies: The Way, Way Back, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Once, American Werewolf in London, Rushmore, Up in the Air,
Spaghetti Westerns, any Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, or Almodóvar
film, The Science of Sleep and Y Tu Mama Tambien. Spanish language
movies are a fav & I often watch American movies dubbed in
Spanish. The Spanish voice over actors are fantastic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, music/musical instruments, books, community and I
am here to find the sixth:)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Alternative answers to OKC's endless questions, when I edit them
next time I am going to be a devout Mormon who is into sex toys and
flag burning but is oddly also a virgin who is against gay marriage
and has lots of guns and cats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a lightweight. If I drink more than two beers my cheeks get
red, I'm everyone's best friend, and I laugh at everything, maybe
even your cliche Burning Man story:)
