Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Moved to Austin 10 years ago from the Boston area and I love it
down here. Would love to meet someone who enjoys the same things as
myself. (see Interests)
If there's one thing I've learned, it's that I need to find someone
who can be a friend first and foremost. Obviously we all want more
than that, but if you don't have the friendship, there's really not
much of a future. That being said, let's be honest, you also have
to have that initial physical attraction to each other. I think I
have a pretty good idea of what I'm looking for, and I hope you do
I'm not one of those guys that's going to hound and harass you
because you don't respond to my email. If you don't respond I
figure there's a reason...you know what you're looking for, and I
may not be it. That's the way it should work.
I do have 2 daughters (13 and 14) who live with me part-time. They
are my world, and always have to come first. I feel so lucky to
Anyway, I'd like to find someone who is into getting out and
discovering Austin (and the Hill Country). Someone who loves to go
for a hike, a swim, do some some trail riding or kayaking...or even
just take a walk around Town Lake.
I'm not so much into hitting the bars just for the sake of hitting
the bars. I do love seeing live music, sitting outside on a patio
in the shade enjoying a drink or hitting the occasional happy hour.
I'm just not into spending a night in some crowded bar. Just not my
idea of fun.
I'm really laid back and casual and I try not to take myself too

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to live everyday to the fullest and have no regrets. Still
not sure what I want to be when I grow up.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastinating...seriously. I'm also a superstar dad. Just ask my
girls. Though they may be biased since I give them chocolate.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Based on the feedback I've gotten, my eyes and smile, but I'd like
to think my dry sense of humor kicks in soon after. Guess that
depends if we actually speak to each other though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books...I'd like to impress everyone with my literary knowledge,
but honestly I like to read books by people like James Patterson
and Dean Koontz. Though I have been thinking of going back and
reading some of the classics that we were all forced to read in
school. Just to see if I would enjoy them a lot more this time
around. An I do take suggestions as well. Movies for me are an
escape as well, and I love to laugh. Anything by Judd Apatow
usually has me laughing my ass off. That being said I love all the
Jason Bourne movies too. And usually like anything with Robert
Downey Jr in it. I do enjoy my TV, and I love most shows on Nat Geo
and The Science Channel. And also Anthony Bourdain's No
Reservations and The Layover. Other favorites are NCIS, Elementary,
Person of Interest, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory. My musical
taste is pretty varied, but doesn't include country. My favorite
band of all time is Pavement. All my favorite music seems to be
from a period in the early-mid 90s while I was in Boston seeing
tons of shows and buying all kinds of CDs. Love bands like Sebadoh,
Dinosaur Jr, Yo La Tengo. As far more recent music, I like to
listen to Cake, Spoon, the White Stripes, Raconteurs to name a few.
And the new Jack White is just amazing. Also, I'm more of a SXSW
person than ACL. Just seem to enjoy the smaller venues and the
whole atmosphere more. Food: Italian will always be my favorite,
but I have learned to love Mexican cuisine since moving to Austin.
And HomeSlice is a must.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the smell of coffee brewing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The universe and how it came about and continues to evolve. And
also string theory and the endless possibilities that brings. I'm a
big geek when it comes to that. Not that I always understand all of
it. Guess that's why I think about it so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, tonight is Friday and I'm hanging/playing/laughing with my
kids. Every other weekend I'm usually hanging out at home or with
friends at someone's house, happy hour, or at the Alamo.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I know most of the words to all 3 High School Musical
movies... Did I mention I actually like Wizards of Waverly Place?
So stupid funny. Have I revealed too much? Update...this list has
changed...I now know all the words to most Taylor Swift songs and
loved watching Good Luck Charlie and iCarly with my little
ones...and sometimes even without them. So sad that they are both
off the air now.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Anything that I've said above is of any interest to you. I'm really
easy going, and I would love to find someone to connect with where
we can both just be ourselves and not worry about trying to be
something we're not.
