Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think that I am a fairly normal (but not average) guy who
is ambitious by anyone's definition. I still adhere to a work hard
- play hard philosophy. When I am home, I spend a lot of time
socializing with my amazing friends, but I like to take a few
nights off here and there as well.
I am an avid traveler, and have been lucky enough to travel to a
lot of places both for work and for fun. I really enjoy exploring
new countries and new cultures. I feel very lucky that my job has
taken me to 40-ish countries in the past few years. The work travel
has slowed down a bit now, but I am not finished finding new places
to visit. To be fair, I still travel a decent amount for work, but
the travel is shorter-term and more focused these days. I currently
spend a lot of time in New York, Boston, and London when I am not
I am a transplant (who isn't? I think I only know about 10 people
who actually grew up here). I grew up in Illinois, went to the
University of Illinois and then lived in the city in Chicago for
about 8 years before moving here a few years ago.
All in all, I am happy and secure in my life and looking for
someone with a similar attitude about her own life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have worked for the same small software company for the past 8
years. Right now I am leading our partner-focused business
development efforts. It's a lot of work, but fun because it is
almost like we have started a new company within the existing
company. (No way to explain that in this little box. Just trust me
that it is cool and makes work fun.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot, mostly when I am on airplanes. I try to mix it up,
and it's hard to pick favorites. I recently read New York Trilogy
by Paul Auster. It was strange and funny and sad and introspective
and pretty much impossible to describe adequately.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
