Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
-The best things in life really are free. Don't care how cliche
that sounds because it really is so true.
-I'm a psychology major turned hotel professional that has recently
decided to return back to my college town of Baltimore to begin the
next phase of my life... and I couldn't be happier with where life
continues to take me.
-I'm an east-coaster with the soul of a west-coaster. I'll always
be a fan of the ocean.
-I like to stay as adventurous as possible. I never would have been
the cook I am or the singer I am today had it not been for my sense
-Is life really worth living if you can't have fun in the
About the girl I'm looking for (based on actual experience!)
-Someone who knows what she wants in life.
-Is willing to be adventurous and try different things...
basically, living life to the fullest.
-Spontaneous...because it really is the spice of life.
-Doesn't mind being competitive in order to succeed in life.
-Wouldn't mind opening up. Whether it be trying their hand at
karaoke or just sharing more about themselves, be an open
-Can appreciate staying in for a home-cooked meal and a glass of
wine as much as a night out on the town.
-And of course, a great smile and a sense of humor is a major plus.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life has taken me many places, but the one most significant to
me was my four years of college in Baltimore. After about 5 years
working my way up in the hotel industry in Denver and the wine
industry in Northern Virginia, I'm back in Baltimore to begin the
next journey in my life. I'm thrilled to be back with my old
friends, meet some new ones, and enjoy everything that the charm
city has to offer!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Singing (4 years in a college a cappella group will do that to
-Cooking... but my baking skills could use some work.
-Laughing. Seriously, it doesn't take a whole lot to put a smile on
my face, ask anyone.
-Listening. You can't learn about someone by being the only one
talking; I'd much rather learn about you than talk about myself all
-But I also love to talk. I have the gift of gab, and I'm not
afraid to admit it!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Would definitely be my smile. Maybe it's because I do it everyday
at work, or maybe its because I'm just naturally happy. But my
smile is definitely my defining characteristic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I just finished reading Team of Rivals, a look at President Lincoln
and his legacy... I'm not exactly history buff, but can definitely
appreciate our past and where it took us.
My favorite movie is and always will be The Big Lebowski. Not only
is it hilarious, but the connections to psychology are endless. My
favorite show I've ever seen would have to be Les Miserables in San
Francisco; not Broadway, I know, but it was still an amazing
experience and helped bring about my interest in singing.
Jazz is by far my favorite style of music, and if we get together
we'll hopefully enjoy a visit to the local Jazz club.
The last question is so difficult for me, just because food and
beverage is such a large part of my life. But if I had to choose my
favorite, I'd go with Italian just because of how regional it is.
What you eat in Naples, for example, is going to be incredibly
different from what you eat in Florence. But I guess the same could
be said for the USA, so who knows!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) My lucky wine opener; because wherever I end up, a bottle of
wine is coming with me.
2.) Some form of transportation. I've never lived in one city for
the majority of life, and this love of travel will follow me
wherever I go.
3.) A pitch pipe. Singing is my true love, and if I'm going to sing
I better be on pitch!
4.) Family, family, family. No further explanation needed.
5.) A really good frying pan. What aspiring cook wouldn't want a
really good frying pan to cook with?
6.) Adventure. My sense of adventure defines who I am, and I hope
that whoever I date have that same love as well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What makes people do the things that they do. I know that's
extremely broad, and maybe a little deep, but the psychology major
in me can't help but think about that on a regular basis.
Especially when you work in hospitality when you see different
people every day, it's interesting to think about what possess
people to do some of the things that they do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On the occasional weekend day off when I'm working (not a ton of
free weekends in the hospitality industry), I'll probably be out
enjoying a beer with friends, or if I'm feeling lazy I'll probably
cook myself a nice dinner. I like to play it cool on my weekends
off because they don't come around all the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm incredibly scared of riding a bike. I know, I know, not riding
a bike at my age is kind of sad, but I had a near-death experience
a few years back and it's been tough to "get back on the bike and
ride" as the saying goes. One day I'll regain the courage, but for
now, I'll stick with my Ford Focus!
