Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't really enjoy the words "self" and "summary" together. I
think it is too much of a challenge. I'm intellectual, but not in
the overly artsy, overly read kind of way. I enjoy pop culture,
live music is life, politics and all sides of what is going on in
the world. I read 10 books at once, usually because I forget to
take them with me and buy new ones. My musical tastes are so
varied, I wouldn't even know where to start. I enjoy conversation
more than anything, and I love trying to make those around me think
or laugh. Or laugh while I make them think about something off the
My world is my family, my wonderful job, my kitties and surprising
people with all my varied interests. Being from Pittsburgh, I have
an inherent love for the Steelers. I love discussing (debating)
things of that nature. I usually disagree just because it is fun.
I'm looking for more people in my life that appreciate that I'm
smart and ridiculously silly :) Live music
drives me, and I like all
kinds of bands and music
, and I have a long history of
working with or for bands.
I am clever, snarky, and thoughtful
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just moved to Charlotte in April and work in Delivery Management
in the UX department of a bank. I play fantasy football with some
of the team (and I'm awful at it) and love laughing as much as I
work. I lived in Charlotte in 1999-2001 and I'm starting over here
after years in Atlanta.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people laugh, and hopefully not just AT me but also
sometimes with me. I think I'm clever, and sometimes, I actually
am. I'm definitely a problem solver!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, my sense of humour, and the ridiculous things I know stuff
about. Oh and I have a lot of tattoos. Upper arms and ankles
mostly. I guess I should put that out there. I also truly love both
college and NFL football and any big game is a big game to me. I've
been convinced from time to time to see a hockey or basketball game
- yet I still know too much about those sports also.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love almost all kinds of music. You name it, I have a favorite
artist. I love everything from Coheed and Cambria to Death Cab for
Cutie to Harry Connick Jr. to Steely Dan. I spent a lot of my 20s
working for bands like 311, Incubus and 2 Skinnee J's. Doesn't
matter if you know who they are - I learned a lot and loved it all!
I don't get caught up with the buzz bands, but I've heard them all
enough to have an intelligent argument as to why I think they are a
flash in the pan ;)
I'm not a beer snob, but I do love good beer. I have a fondness for
hops. Keep your hefeweizens to yourself, because I prefer any other
kind of beer.
I love reading, and I am always interested in finding new books to
read, while not being hung up on who the most popular author is
this year. I love reading books on history and politics. I minored
in WWII history just so I could read about it during my study time.
I adore reading about politics or history or music. I used to study
the music business like it is a science. I own more books than I've
read, but its like a goal.
I had one of those movie-free childhoods, so people are always
surprised at the movies I haven't seen. But, I really enjoy
watching movies at home, especially independent movies that have
really unique stories. I've also gotten into the habit of trying to
see every movie nominated for an Oscar because many of them seem to
be the most interesting, even if not the most popular box
office-wise. Still, there are certain movies I can't resist when
they are on television - Any Given Sunday, Down to You, Notting
Hill - again, varied!
In the last few years, I've definitely expanded my palate. When I
was challenged with 2 weeks in Beijing and Tokyo I had to eat a
little more than my German/Western PA sensibility of meat and
potatoes. I love mexican, Bangladeshi and sushi if I had to pick
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my family
3. my laptop
5. nights out with my friends
6. my faith
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My Niece and my Nephew. They are in Ohio and New Hampshire and are
1 and 2 - they do amazing things all the time. I also think about
the next thing I should learn or read up on. I have one of those
weird memories that allows me to quote any fact or stat I've ever
read, and I'm always trying to expand that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since I am new in Charlotte, I'm typically at home, catching up on
some TV and letting my week go. And, wishing I knew of a good
karaoke bar in Charlotte, and people who would meet me there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, that seems like a difficult question.

You want to have a fun evening of the most diverse conversation you
might ever have. There is a lot going on in here, I'm just waiting
for someone else to appreciate that! Also, if you've ever muttered
the sentence "Expo '86 sounds so amazing live on this Amsterdam
recording - much better than the original album cut".
