Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Bay Area transplant by way of the Central Valley (formative
years) and Davis (undergrad or perhaps more formative years). I
made a big life change recently and decided to leave my job of over
seven years in non-profit. Prior to my departure I was the Director
of Programs and formerly Resident Camp Director for a small
non-profit that serves children, teens and families affected by
While the work was meaningful and rewarding I was simply ready for
a professional change and a new life adventure. I'm in the process
of studying for the LSAT and hope to start law school in Fall
I am a fairly cautious and private person though I'm looking to
branch out so here I am - one branch on my hopefully growing tree.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
30 Rock Trivia - like scary good!
Organizing & Systematizing (nerdy I know)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My unexpected wit/humor. I'm a surprising package once I warm up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm a big reader and I have a terrible time picking a
favorite. It's usually whatever I've just finished reading.
Currently on the "favorites" list:
Shantaram (I'm not gonna lie, great story but I think I'm more
impressed for having finished this monster)
A Thousand Splendid Suns
Movies I'll Watch Over & Over :
My movies preferences are more far reaching but you have to have
some old stand bys.
The Daily Show
Law & Order: SVU
It's Always Sunny…
Music: Other than screamo (if that's even a thing anymore) and hard
core rock I'll listen to just about anything. I will confess I'm a
pretty loyal Top 40 (in just about any genre) fan but I'll throw
some NPR or Sports Radio on the way home from work fairly
Air/stove/movie theater popped popcorn (if I had to pick one food
for the rest of my life I'm confident I could live on popcorn just
not the bag popped kind - though it will do in a pinch)
Thai (Pad See Ew specfically)
I'm not super adventurous when it comes to food but I'm willing to
try most things at least once minus spicy things - I have learned I
just wasn't built for spice (in food).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Diet Dr. Pepper/Diet Coke (I'm not proud of it but I figure I could
have bigger vices)
A Diverse Music Collection
The Ability to Travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Next steps in life.
My contribution to the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing something fun and relaxing. Sometimes that's Redbox and Thai
take-out, other nights its a night out with friends.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- are grounded.
- have a good sense of humor (sarcasm welcome, though let me get to
know you a bit before you lay it on thick).
- are kind and empathetic.
- are ok with my love of the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers (
you can cheer on whoever you want to and I'll support them as long
as they aren't playing the Packers)
- think we might hit it off (even only as friends).
