Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Currently, I am working in the oil and gas industry as a submarine
pilot. It's cool and weird, and nothing like what I thought I would
be doing when I "grew up." Best part of the job? I get almost 4
weeks off at a time. Worst part? I also work 4 weeks at a
I love to travel and learn. I enjoy meeting new people, and having
new experiences. 2014 was full of all of those things. May the
trend continue in '15!
I like the outdoors, and can include snowboarding and SCUBA diving
as hobbies. I just bought myself a bunch of new dive gear that I
plan on using a lot.
I am a guy who has a few close friends who I will do absolutely
anything for, and I think they'd return the favor. I come from a
small family that I am very close with, and I include my friends as
an extension of my family.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spent the last few years working at a great restaurant in
Downtown Seattle. I love it there, and actually like going to work
most days. Even with my new job I will be picking up shifts when
I'm in town. I love the social aspect, and extra spending money
I am looking to travel more outside of work. While I have done a
bit of traveling, mostly Northern Europe and Scandinavia, I would
love to make it a regular thing. I finally made it to Mexico
recently, and I loved it. I really need to pick warm destinations
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lots of things. I am really a Jack of all trades. Whether working
on my '71 BMW or fixing a friends computer, I like getting my hands
dirty. Yes, I have even been known to paint and garden.
I also love to cook. Maybe I'm not "really good," ( I have worked
with some amazing chefs, and as a result maybe my standards are
skewed), but I rarely get complaints. Any complaints are usually
because I used some ingredient that is foreign to my family's
Midwestern palette. My usual arrangement is that I'll buy, host and
cook, but damn if I don't hate doing dishes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I like to read for recreation, not so much to make me smarter. I
read Enders Game when I was a teenager, and still consider it a top
5'er. I am currently in the middle of 5 books: One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest, Wind Up Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi, The Universe in a
Nutshell by Steven Hawking, a book in the Ender's game series, and
a photography book.
As far as movies, consider me a fan. My collection is primarily
comedy and action, as they can be put on at any time. I have to be
in the mood for something more dramatic, though I did love the
Dragon Tattoo movies.
Movies that I can throw in anytime
Big Fish (damned if I don't get sentimental with this one)
Mars Attacks (We come in peace. We come in peace. Ack Ack!)
We Were Soldiers -- one of the few that is as good as the
The Abyss -- Probably my all-time favorite
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Dazed and Confused
Sick of reading yet? Lets talk about the rest, music food etc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3. My job. I'd rather list my job as man of leisure, but that won't
be happening any time soon.
4. A quiet place for me. I love being around people, but sometimes
some time alone with my thoughts is necessary.
5. Something to read. I read everything. Even the cereal box at
breakfast and shampoo bottle in the shower.
6. Good produce. I like cooking, and while I *could* live without
meat, I don't think I'd be very happy without fresh fruits and
* I am in no danger of going vegetarian. But if you are, I have
several specialties I could keep you happy with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Usually hanging out with a buddy or two. Maybe out somewhere in
Ballard. I definitely prefer a dive bar with a pool table and
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing really, I'm pretty much an open book.

You're up for an adventure, I'm in, or If you want a classic

I am equally at home at El Gaucho as I am camping. Whether
shuffleboard and a beer is in the cards or a hotdog at the zoo, I'm
up for it.
