Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Basics: I grew up in California, went to undergrad out east, lived
in Europe for 4 years, and moved to Nashville for grad school. I
moved to Arizona last summer.
My laughter is loud and unapologetic. Good grammar and manners
matter. I walk the line between chivalry and gender equality. I am
not afraid of the spotlight, but prefer to shine it on others. I'm
not afraid of awkward silence or prolonged eye contact.
I am looking for somebody fun and easy to be around with high
quality of character that I can't take my eyes off of.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Career-wise, I help people who suffer from hearing loss and
dizziness. I get my clinical doctorate in May.
Otherwise, I play Ultimate frisbee competitively, piano
professionally, and have spent most of an unfairly large amount of
my life filling up my passport. Fun fact: I've gotten my hair cut
on six continents.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Stopping to smell roses (aka appreciating simple pleasures in
Making a silk purse out of a sow's ear (aka making the best of a
bad situation, finding silver linings on clouds)
Umm...how do some people not know these catchphrases???
Oh! And Catchphrase! (PS I love games!)
Also, I'll kick your ass in pool, darts, and/or foosball, but go
ahead and challenge me anyway. Loser buys ice cream. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really nice. Maybe too nice? A mench, even.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Frankly, I'd rather go outside and play/travel/socialize than watch
TV or read a book. But since you asked...
Favorites include Forrest Gump, the Shawshank
Redemption, Remember the Titans, and That Thing You Do.
Last movie I saw
: Into The Woods (it's better on
I mostly like to watch sports. But I do enjoy the
Sing-Off, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, and Last Week Tonight.
I know a lot of music and my tastes are diverse,
ranging from Sinatra to the Who. My current favorite is The Band
I crush Indian buffets and Mom's lasagna. My palate is
broad and I like to order "family" style. If menus scare you, just
let me handle it -- you won't be sorry.
Addendum: I just read this:
And with this article in mind, I'm trying not to die. My favorite
movie/show is the one I'm watching with you. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Yeah yeah yeah...friends, family, oxygen, etc.
All true, but not insightful! Try these:
. Joy when I'm up; therapy when I'm down.
2) Lactaid Milk
. I'm not lactose intolerant - it just tastes
. If my mouth doesn't feel clean, I don't feel
4) Alarm clock
. I'm a night owl by nature. I never want to
start sleeping...I also never want to stop.
5) Cell phone
. I tried to avoid the obvious here, but
traveling abroad without cell service (maps!) made me realize how
much we've come to depend on the stupid things! (I dare you to
airplane-mode your phone for more than 24 hours!) I just try not to
be a slave to it.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Choosing my own adventure...
a) In bed at a reasonable hour for Saturday morning fun
b) Playing piano, at home or a dueling piano show
c) Out at happy hour / being social
d) Flying out of town for the weekend
