Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Baltimore but went to school in Washington and decided
I liked it so much I'd stick around.
I like to spend a lot of time on my own and while I have some great
friends and family I would characterize myself as a solitary
person. I love to read, watch sports and television, and hang out
with my friends. That said, I'd go crazy if I wasn't out and about
in the city trying to meet new people.
I am laid back, and more often than not I need to be pushed by
friends and family to try new things. However, I have found as I
get older that this is happening less and less as I take more
initiative on my own.
When people first meet me I am pretty quiet. It takes a while for
me to open up but once you get to know me you realize I have a
great sense of humor, an active imagination and a silly side when
appropriate, and sometimes not so appropriate. I am also pretty
loyal to people I am close to in my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a great job with the federal government in health care that
I would say is a career at this point in my life, but I would also
say that I work so that I can enjoy life. I still take my job very
seriously and consider myself very good at what I do. (If only I
had the same confidence in the rest of my life. I might be

I read a lot, one or two books a week. Mostly best selling author
types. At any given time I have probably read at least three books
on the NY Times bestseller list. I read to get away but I also
learn a lot from what I read. I am fascinated with George R.R.
Martin's Game of Thrones series, mysteries, historical fiction and
almost everything written by Crichton.
I like to watch movies, but from the comfort of my couch not a
movie theater. Getting Netflix for the first time was a big deal.
Getting a Roku an even bigger deal. I like going to the movies, it
just doesn't happen all that much. I used to be able to watch
anything but I am discovering the older I get the more discerning
I watch a good amount of television too. I enjoy most shows on AMC,
FX, HBO and SHO. A few of my favorite shows presently are: Mad Men,
Walking Dead, The Americans, Vikings, Game of Thrones, Silicon
Valley, Downton Abbey and Homeland. I have found that I tend to DVR
everything and I hardly watch anything live unless it's a sporting
I have an eclectic taste in music but I know far less about music
than I would like. I go to a fair amount of live shows but have
trouble getting my friends to go with me (maybe you would like to
join me?). Some recent favorites include Freelance Whales, The
Naked and Famous and Ra Ra Riot. I also have a soft spot for Beach
House. If you get to know me I'll tell you why.
I am a picky eater but I am trying.
