Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love exploring my surroundings. In my spare time, I like to walk
or bike around the city observing the different neighborhoods and
architectural styles of Minneapolis.
I enjoy travel, often preferring shorter trips, but also something
more ambitious on occasion. Most recently I was in NYC and this
summer I'm headed to Germany to visit friends. A few of my travel
goals include the Trans-Siberian railway, South America and a
national park in the U.S. (I have never been to one!).
I like to be sarcastic, hopefully in a good-natured way, and
appreciate the same quality in others. I am also inquisitive (I
spend lots of time looking up frivolous information online) and
loyal to my friends and family.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After devoting much of my life to studying, teaching and performing
music, I gave up the dream a few years ago to pursue a different,
unknown path. Currently I am working in an architecture firm and
look forward to exploring further possibilities within that field.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Putting my contacts in.
Getting to work on time.
Not finishing books.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I just finished Bossypants by Tina Fey and am thinking of
trying In Cold Blood next. My favorite book from my school years
was My Antonia by Willa Cather, and I'd like to reread that
sometime soon, as well.
Movies: The Godfather, Sideways, Anne of Green Gables. I like food
documentaries and some recent favorites include Jiro Dreams of
Sushi, Somm and Three Stars.
TV: Mad Men, Antiques Roadshow, Louie, Anthony Bourdain's Parts
Unknown. I've been told there are a lot of great shows to check out
on HBO, but I haven't had the chance yet.
Music: Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane and many other jazz
musicians; Atmosphere, Lissie, Usher, Johnny Cash; Beethoven,
Chopin and other classical; Top 40 sometimes; Eastern European folk
Food: I love both cooking and eating out. At home I tend to eat
plant-based meals, but when I go out, anything is fair game. A few
favorite restaurants are Burch, 112 Eatery, Los Ocampo (I will
never be able to quit their gorditas al pastor!), Pupuseria El
Centro and Isles Bun & Coffee for the puppy dog tails.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One of my biggest dreams would have been to play in the NBA or just
to be able to dunk a basketball.
