Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm very laid back, genuine, caring, loyal, affectionate, and
purpose-driven. I'm confident and know who I am, have a great heart
and believe in the best of people. People fascinate me and I love
to learn what makes them tick and enjoy meaningful conversations
with others. My friends would describe me as a down to earth,
intelligent, independent and discerning person. I like to challenge
and grow myself in all areas of my life: mentally (learning new
things), physically (healthy eating habits and physical fitness)
I'm a very honest person and don't play games. I like spending my
time with genuine people and hope to find some on this
I guess I could talk about what every other person says on this
site and it would go like this: I'm a fun loving person who likes
music, traveling, good wine and food. Blah - that is boring. I mean
who doesn't like to travel and who doesn't enjoy music? So here are
some unique, random facts about me:
1. I had the opportunity to audition for the circus after
2. I have a quirk for weird healthy foods.
3. I like real jazz. That means artists like John Coltrane, Miles
Davis, and even more modern artists like Brad Mehldau. I know 99%
of people on here don't really care much about it, but that's okay.
We still could be a good match. Just be able to tolerate my
4. I like to read and watch shows about science, humanities,
religion, history, etc...so yes, I'm kind of a geek and nerd. If
all you care about is pop culture and the only conversation you can
keep is talking about the Kardashians, then we probably won't be a
5. The only felony I've committed was in 6th grade. I made a copy
of a dollar bill to see if I could get a free coke out of the
vending machine. It didn't work, but I did get suspended for making
counterfeit money. I've been pretty well behaved ever since.
6. I had a homeless guy live with me for about 3-4 months several
years ago. He slept on my couch. We actually become really good
friends and still hang out to this day. Thankfully he is no longer
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in the world of finance. Outside of work, I play jazz piano
and occasionally play gigs with a jazz group. I also mentor a
15-year old kid from West Dallas.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm afraid if I brag about myself you might think I'm conceited. I
honestly don't like talking about my good qualities. I think it's a
bit prideful. Let's just say I'm good at many things. :)

I don't know! If this is the first time you are checking out my
profile, then please tell me... :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've always enjoyed the arts and I love going to museums and
attending cultural events. As far as music is concerned, since I'm
a musician I enjoy all types of genres, but my favorite would be
real jazz (not the elevator music kind).
I love trying new types of food and even unique, non-chain
restaurants. I really don't have a favorite type of food, but my
favorite type of dessert is anything with chocolate. :)
Regarding movies and TV shows: it doesn't matter to me if we have
similar interests. It doesn't make us a match. However, if you
prefer to fill your mind with nothing but horror / gore movies we
probably aren't a match.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3. Healthy and tasty food
4. Great friends / community
5. Being physically active - working out
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Trying to figure out what to put in this space.... Seriously
though, I think about many things and I'm not sure if I focus on
one thing all the time.....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging with friends, a date (if I'm lucky), going out to eat,
movies, theater, DMA, concerts, hanging out with my mentee, or
sometimes just chilling at home. I also enjoy going to jazz clubs /
bars to listen to live music.
I'm not really into the club, dance or loud bar scene, so if you
are looking for someone to party with every weekend please look
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm...I had to get up on stage in front of a large crowd in my
underwear one time. Maybe I should have put that in my list
