My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Like many other SF residents, I spent the majority of my life on the east coast (DC, CT, NYC) before wising up and realizing the virtues of In-N-Out, wearing t-shirts in February, being an hour's drive from wine country, and no Friday afternoon meetings were worth moving across the country. Soon after arriving, I acclimated quickly -- maybe a bit too much so -- and had the requisite "guy who recently moved to SF package": patagonia vest, european sedan, medical marijuana card and asian girlfriend. (For the record, I date the rainbow and have no fetish, folks -- so don't go there.) While the novelty of some of those items has worn over time, I'm confident that I'll be in SF (or at least the west coast) for the long haul.

I am known in some circles as Baseball Jesus as my arrival in 2010 serendipitously corresponded with Los Gigantes world series win. And as a lifelong Red Sox fan who has adopted the Giants as my NL team, the past four Octobers have been pretty sweet. (For the record, I'm down on the Panda going to Fenway.)

To me, it's all about the stories. I want to hear your stories -- old and new, the things that made you laugh, pause, think, or cry; your biggest triumphs and your random MUNI ride this morning; your best trip to date, and the one you're currently planning; how you are juggling your career, outside interests, friends/family -- and most importantly, the color commentary. (I'm all about the color commentary.)

I'll tell lots of stories, and I'll make you laugh really, really hard.
If you enjoy fun, social, intelligent, clever guys that are excellent dinner dates and/or cards against humanity partners, who all of your friends and family will love and can always pick the best wine, regardless of the occasion - I'm easily in the top 33% of all of those guys that live in pac heights. Some would even argue top 25%, but I don't like to boast.

I could tell you about my job, how I like to travel, be outside and active -- and trust me, we'll cover all of that at some point -- but that's not going to compel you that I'm "the" guy (at least right now, anyway).

I'm looking for someone who is smart, funny, cute, generally happy about life and comfortable in their own skin. Seeking chemistry, laughs, lots of red wine, dinners out and at home, roadtrips near and far, and spending time with family.

And not that I think it's necessary -- but if it helps, I'm happy to tell you how I'm one degree from Kevin Bacon through THREE separate connections. (How many professional guys in their early 40s in the Bay area can make that claim? Can't be more than 2 or 3 -- tops.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Marketing. I like telling stories, so I'm in the right job. (If you think you recognize me from work, I'm sure you're mistaken, so feel free to move along.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading people and situations
Telling stories
Wedding toasts that make you laugh, then get a little verklempt
Making people laugh
Picking a great restaurant/movie/travel idea/red wine
Grilling
Giving pep talks
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes. Oddly enough, I've also received many "I love how you smell" compliments from women -- so apparently my pheromones are outstanding.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm not a big podcast person, but I just wrapped up 'Serial' and really enjoyed it. Such a great job at narrative storytelling, and impressed with all of the twists and turns.

Music: Radiohead, Arcade Fire, the XX, Phoenix, Wilco, Spoon, the Strokes, Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation, Kanye, Wu-Tang, LCD Soundsystem. Basically everything except country.

TV: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Anthony Bourdain, the Wire. After much prodding by friends, I finally broke down and watched Game of Thrones (enjoyed it). And 'the Knick' -- incredibly good.

Movies: If it's playing at Sundance Kabuki, there's a good chance I'll want to see it. Inception, Rushmore, the Royal Tenenbaums, Little Miss Sunshine, Lost in Translation, Exit Through the Gift Shop.

Pretty voracious reader. Big fan of the New Yorker.

Food: just about everything, except corn and beets. Special fondness for good, authentic mexican, and always on the lookout for a great fish taco.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, etc -- especially being a rockstar uncle

Comfortable, worn clothing -- like old jeans, pullovers and that fraying t-shirt that you stole, but can't remember the details

Laughter, storytelling and good, engaging conversation

Good red wine

Diet Coke

Planning my next trip (recent trips include Bali, Thailand, and Mexico; looking forward to Barcelona, Italy, Australia and Scandinavia)

Trident bubble gum (4 out of 5 dentists can't be wrong)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What type of dog I will get, and when

How in the hell I'm going to make a dent in all of the wine in my apartment (was a bit overzealous joining wine clubs when I first moved here)

At what point in my life I will have my own washer/dryer

The sometimes unintentional comedy of online dating (don't really spend lots of time thinking about it, but some of the online interactions are pretty funny)

Why there isn't a singles bar at the top of Machu Picchu (since it seems like everyone has a pic on their profile)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out to dinner with friends, hosting people at my place, or just relaxing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're intrigued, think we might have some chemistry, and are up for meeting in person -- I'm not a big fan of marathon emails back and forth.

Also, if you live more than ~25 miles or so from San Francisco -- while I'm very flattered in your interest, it's unlikely that I'll respond to any emails. This would include anyone living in China and the Philippines.
