Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I (like 90% of the OKcupid world) struggle with this section but
here goes a best effort.
I'm a Bay Area transplant by way of the Central Valley (formative
years) and Davis (undergrad or perhaps more formative years). I
work for a small non-profit as a resident camp director. My work
can be demanding and can incredibly rewarding. Due to said
demanding work and borderline workaholism I find myself here...in
the online dating world.
I've traveled a fair amount and love it! My pictures would have you
believe I'm scaling mountains and exploring far away deserts every
weekend. While I'm up to join in on adventures with family and
friends I also appreciate just being home doing everyday things.
I'm on the road for work a lot and there is nothing like coming
home to your own bed, your own bathroom, your own kitchen, you get
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 a resident camp director for a type-1 diabetes camps for
children, teens and families. I spend my summers at 6,000 feet
among the giant Sequoia running camp and the rest of the year in
the East Bay planning, prepping, organizing and hiring. Lots of
people hear summer camp and think "fun". Its a great deal of fun
and its a great deal of work as well. It's rewarding and
exhausting. I love (nearly) every minute of it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
30 Rock Trivia - like scary good!
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
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?
lately...falling into bed with a hastily selected Redbox offering
that I'll probably only see 20 minutes of before drifting into
dream land. Post summer life for camp directors is about 80%
When I've returned to the land of the living, like most, I'm out
with friends (dive bar, movies, dinner, etc).
