Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to learn about everything I can. I've been getting 'how the
hell did you know that?' pretty regularly for most of my
I don't believe in luck, karma, or cynicism. I follow my instincts,
intuitions, and perhaps my 'heart', whatever that means.
Working in hospitality is more of a lifestyle than a career to me.
This means I'm almost always helpful, well-mannered, and witty
(although my message to you might prove otherwise) no matter where
I am. So if you like to host dinner parties or care for the
infirmed, we'd probably be a good match.
If we end up being friends... great! But that's not why I'm here
(exceptions will be made for exceptional Scrabble players / trivia
contestants). I'd be your penpal only if you live on the island.
Short-term dating of a fascinating but ultimately incompatible
woman interests me most, but a long-term relationship with a sexy
genius would be the best.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm hoping to be the human exhibit in an alien zoo. Perhaps you
could join me. They'll want to re-create our natural habitat so
that's something to think about.
I'd also like to play for a national soccer team in the senior's
World Cup. Like, how hard can it be to make San Marino's or Fiji's
team? I'd be willing to move if it mattered.
Until then, I'll continue working as a chef. I'd like to teach
cooking and baking to young people eventually because I seem to
have a knack for it. I'd also like have my own restaurant(s), and I
have a menu for each already.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- chopping wood, starting a fire, folding boxes, and anything else
- making the best with what I have wherever I am
- showing up when and where I said I would
- caring or not caring (depending on what suits the situation best)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get compliments on my hair sometimes. People also tell me that
they think I dress really well and that I'm thoughtful with
favours, complements, and small gifts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

book: Currently enjoying a biography on Nikola Tesla (which I wish
was called 'Electric Jesus'). Before that, I really liked '1421'

anything with Steve Coogan
any insightful / depressing documentary
music: 60's psych or 80's stuff. What I like most are depressing
bands that I wouldn't play unless alone like The Smiths,
Spiritualized, Portishead. Same goes for Sparks and Ween, but
they're more annoying than sad. I also like singing and playing
Beatles or Bill Withers songs on my guitar or mini-guitar (and my
versions of Tweet songs). Growing up where I did made me somewhat
of a fan of dancehall, which surprises some people who think they
food: pizza (kinda obsessed...), cafe sua da (worth the wait),
deep-fried _______ (tempura kale/rapini is great; most recent
experiment: croque monsieur crois-sandwich!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My trivia team (friends + knowledge + free drinks 〓 good
An occasional night out dancing (sometimes it doesn't even matter
where or to what)
My family, although I don't see them as often as I'd like
Coffee, Blistex DCT, and Extra-strength Fisherman's Friend
Wait, I forgot about zinc. Come back zinc!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- new recipes
- the re-vitalization of Detroit
- comparing the news with history
- dead white European heroes
- an iclusive world where Asian cuisines use rapini and the former
Yugoslavia re-unites for sporting events
- seemingly able-bodied, otherwise unencumbered men who take the
elevator rather than brave ONE flight of stairs
- origin stories (especially where foods come from)
- going to Pag
- fan death
- the epic song I'm going to write after I meet you
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working smart and playing nice
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I'm in a department store and an inexplicable breeze removes my
hat, I'll turn into a mannequin.

- you're not totally guano
- I messaged you
