Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a fun, athletic person that enjoys working, laughing and
playing! (Not necessarily in that order) I was an athlete all the
way thru college and picked up coaching. I am from Portland, Or.
born and raised. Started swimming at the age of 4 (mainly because
my father was the coach of the team and I wanted to see him.) Grew
up in a suburb of Portland and had a great childhood, very average
middle class area. I went to Indiana for my undergraduate and
majored in Environmental Planning and Management. I continued my
education and recevied a master's degree in the same field. I
worked with a local club team as a coach and found working with the
10-15 year olds really rewarding. I enjoy kids and young adults!
Swimming is a part of my life and I have picked up running and
mountain biking along the way. Swimming has taken me all over the
country. I hope one day all over the world. I have an older brother
in Portland that has two beautiful children. I enjoy seeing them as
much as my time permits. The plan right now is to enjoy the area I
live in, meet someone that will share in life’s riches, and one day
move on to another area of the country (preferable the Northwest)
and continue coaching. I have a feeling that life (and my plan)
will change! That's me!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
That is a great question....I find that when you have a plan, it
changes. The plan right now is to enjoy life!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, Laughing, Coaching.... and having a great outlook on
life! I am the person at work that says hi with a smile almost
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, personality and athleticism.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am not going to lie; I read the Harry Potter Series and enjoyed
it. I saw all the HP movies. I would like to attend more movies.
Favorite show: Seinfeld (The best!) Pearl Jam has been my favorite
band of all times (which I hope they go back on tour so I can see
them in concert), but I have other that I can sit back and listen
to (Colplay, Pink Floyd, Better than Ezra) and yes food is my
favorite, ALL OF IT!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I am the kind of person that if I don’t have it, I don’t know what
I am missing. If that makes me a simple man, well, then I am
simple. Things that are currently in my life that I could never do
without (am I am sure everyone says the first one). My family,
smiling, career, food, laughter and did I mention my family!?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Actually about life....I know it sounds sappy, but I am happy with
my career and would like to find someone to share it with! God has
blessed me! When I am in my office or with colleagues I think about
how to coach more effectively, how to teach smarter and what makes
the words I am saying more productive and useful to my athletes
then what other coaches say.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I do either two things:
Go out with friends and grab a drink.
Or have a quiet night and watch a movie (I have morning practice so
staying out all night doesn't happen until Saturday night).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is.......I have a cat. Yes, a single man that has a cat. I know
there is nothing wrong with that, but I am a dog person and yet...I
have a cat! You should ask me about him sometime!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to hear my story and are an enthusiastic person that
enjoys the outdoors....I have never done internet dating and I am
still on the fence about it, but am willing to give it a shot! Hope
to hear from you!
