Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's get outside, drink whiskey and listen to Tom Waits.
I'm a native midwesterner, so by law that means I'm naturally a
friendly, thoughtful, independent person. I like to think I'm
creative because I spend a lot of my free time writing, making
music and working with my hands. I catch a couple shows a month at
somewhere like the Fox, Bottom of the Hill or Great American Music
I'm down to earth with a bit of an adventurous streak, and my sense
of humor relies WAY too much on old Simpsons episodes and Douglas
Adams books. I love the outdoors, and hiking through the
backcountry of Yosemite or snowboarding in Tahoe as much as
possible really clears my head.
In the past year I've realized that I'm at the point in my life
where I'm tired of meeting people in bars. Fun for awhile. Not so
much anymore. It'd be nice to forge a deeper connection. So I guess
that's what I'm looking for here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Saving the future of the earth at a solar company. Teaching myself
Pro-Tools. Writing in my spare time. Trying (and mostly failing) to
I escaped the work week once last year. If I can get out again, I'd
like to teach English in South America to experience a little more
of the planet (and see Patagonia before it melts).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Adapting to the world and my environment. I'm pretty comfortable in
any situation or location I find myself in. I'm a pretty great
listener, too. If there were a listening championship, I would
easily place in the top three.
I also make a decent breakfast and I'm an ace on trivia night. So
if you need to know the capital of Liberia while eating french
toast, I'm your man.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shave my head, so if it's a sunny day; it's probably the sun
shining off my dome. That thing is a beacon when it's bright out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Charles Bukowski (yeah, I know) said "An intellectual says a simple
thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way."
That seems about right.
Books, just finished Joan Didion's "A Book of Common Prayer" and
I'm currently plowing through some Richard Brautigan, but I'll read
anything that's well-written (or at least has a cool cover).
I love PT Anderson, Martin Scorsese, the Coen brothers and Wes
Anderson's films. I'm always up for a good documentary too.
Breaking Bad, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Mad Men, Mr. Show,
Arrested Development and the Wire are/were all great. I'm also a
sucker for college football & basketball.
Music pretty much fuels my life, and I listen to it constantly. I
try to go to a few shows a month and listen to everything from soul
to late 70's post-punk and country to new folk, indie &
hip-hop. I think Tame Impala, Kendrick Lamar and the War on Drugs
are making some of the best new music right now. And A Tribe Called
Quest, the Beatles, Radiohead & Yo La Tengo are
Also, "Roadrunner" by the Modern Lovers might be the best song ever
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm a pretty simple creature, I don't need much to survive. Water
& food and I'm set.
That said, I'll always want something to make some kind of music.
So add a guitar and an iPod to the list. I might even make
something work with a harmonica or melodica.
I need an escape from the city too, so I'll take a loaded backpack
with a tent so I can make a home wherever I want. Add my bike to
the list, plus someone to share it all with and that's an even six
Shit. Just got a puppy. Gotta find a way to work that little guy in
somewhere this list.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The five best American ambassadors that embody our best attributes.
The constantly evolving list at the moment:
1) Elizabeth Warren
2) Willie Nelson
3) Tina Fey
4) Stephen Colbert
Need a fifth though. That last spot is always the hardest to fill.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a show or getting dinner and drinks with friends. Sometimes all
three in the same night. I know, I know, three incredibly easy
things in one night? How does someone find the time?! Oh yeah. I

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You need a partner in crime. You want someone to laugh with and
have meaningful conversations with while traveling around seeking
adventures. You want to be with someone complements you personally,
emotionally and makes you feel comfortable.
I'm really interested in intelligent, honest women who laugh easily
and often. A great smile and eyes that convey a lot of joy are
always a plus too; so bonus if you possess either of those.
