I've been in Seattle for almost two years now and I'm eager to continue exploring this lovely city.
If only traffic would let up...
I'm a former newspaper photojournalist, now working in communications for a software company, but I still love photography and I'm always down to geek out about it.
I also enjoy ultimate frisbee, disc golf, basketball and karaoke, though I'm not particularly good at any of those things.
I am a pretty decent cook, though. I don't have the biggest repertoire, but I'm good at the dishes I know.
I have a cat named Lt. Cmd. Scruff who's overdue for a promotion, but I just don't like the sound of Commander Scruff nearly as much. Sorry, little buddy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'd like to find somebody with enough similar interests to have fun together, but my match would also have her own life. Nothing's worse than a couple who does everything together.
I guess Ebola and genocide are worse.
Even though I'm a creative visual person, I enjoy words too. I'm a part-time grammar snob, so thumbs up if your the type of person who just cringed that I used the wrong you're.
I’m really good at
Meeting new people. It comes with my job, but I genuinely enjoy it too. I especially like meeting people from vastly different walks of life and learning about how they see the world.
I'm also pretty snarky and quick with a quip. You probably haven't laughed once on here, but I'm funnier in person.
The first things people usually notice about me
My long hair. Since I swam and played water polo in high school, I shaved my head every year. After graduating, I just let it grow, and I guess it just GREW on me.
See? Not funny on paper at all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Wire, Breaking Bad, Nathan for You, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Burn Notice, Workaholics, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Talking Heads, Journey, 90's R&B, 80's anything, bacon, hot wings, pho, ramen (KUKAI), Thai food (especially laab), Hunter S. Thompson, photography books...I'm super excited to live near a Heaven Sent Fried Chicken too.
The six things I could never do without
My family, cameras, lighting equipment, people to meet, places to explore and The Onion/Clickhole.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Silly portrait ideas and how I wish Kukai had better service and a location right next to my apartment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either excited to kick off the weekend with some fun, or pseudo-regretting all the weeknight activities that exhausted me.
You should message me if
If you like belting out Journey or Cutting Crew unironically.
If you like my long hair.
If you are planning an exit strategy in case Trump becomes president.
