Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I make the best salad you may ever have - if I can come up with
another 50 equally good recipes I'll get my own show on the Food
One of my great passions is youth sports. I'm a middle school and
high school hockey coach and love it more than everything besides
playing myself. I had wonderful mentors when I was a child who
helped me to become the success I am today and nothing gives me
more satisfaction than doing the same for kids now that I'm an
Every woman I've ever known has given me high marks for my dimples.
If only they'd give me the same for my 2 o'clock shadow.
I’ve visited 38 states and hope to get to the other 12 before I’m
40. You’ll never guess which state had the prettiest view (sorry
I try to be an effective Christian - loving, generous, thoughtful.
On my best day I probably manage two out of three. The other days,
well that's what grace is for.
If you're a thoughtful, fun, adventurous believer who skips over
profiles with shirtless ab photos then I just may be worth a hello.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Here are my greatest hits since entering the real world -
Two weeks after graduating college I packed everything I could fit
in my '94 Buick LeSabre and drove to Houston. I spent twelve months
building a painting company for Home Depot...they shut it down
While I was there we were hit by Hurricane Rita. Everyone was still
in post-Katrina freakout mode so it took seven hours to get twenty
miles up the road. I ended up spending the night in the middle of
the country at my neighbor's grandfather's house. Turned out not to
be a necessary trip - the only impact of the storm was a short
power outage and a fallen wind chime. I did earn a nickname from my
friend's neighbor however - Smily.
The next year I moved to Washington DC. I didn't much care for DC
but I did gain one fabulous memory - playing hockey every Sunday in
front of the White House. We set up nets and played for a couple
hours whenever the weather was nice. It became so standard that
tourists started taking pictures and the Secret Service would
I spent the next six years living in Raleigh, North Carolina. I
developed a love for pulled pork, loud thunderstorms, craft beer,
coaching youth sports, and epic game nights.
I've been back in my native Bay Area since last June. I've got a
great career in IT sales. I get to make a good living having
thoughtful conversations with thoughtful people - so far so good.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well there's the salad I alluded to - it really is the stuff of
legends. I can also make a mean rum & coke. I can rock a stick
shift too - apparently they're not making many these days.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can do without just about anything - most of the things in our
lives are temporary. That said - here are the six most important
things in my life:
My faith, the right relationship with God
Living with purpose - having a great reason to get up in the

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Hopefully I'm meeting a beautiful woman from OKC for a drink. If
not I'm probably doing game night with my friends. Speaking of
which - check out RoboRally, hilarious party game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm awfully forgetful about little things. I'll be in my car about
to drive off and then run back to check if I locked the door - it's
always locked. I'll run down to my office parking lot to satisfy my
paranoia that I put up my parking placard - it's always there.
