Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to San Francisco from Seattle in May for a new job. So
far so good! I love this city. It reminds me of Seattle in many
ways but with a lot more to do, more sun and lots less rain.
I'm an artist and designer for a living. Currently I'm working on
art stuffs for social media games. Over the years I've also done
graphic design, painted backgrounds, character design, storyboards,
presentation and event design. Pretty much I'll draw, paint,
Photoshop whatever someone wants to pay me for.
What else? I like geeky stuff but wouldn't consider myself a nerd.
I'm a sports fan, mainly football, baseball and golf, but I've
never let it get in the way of the rest of my life. It usually
takes me awhile to warm up to people, something I'm getting much
better at. I'm in love with mid-century modern. From decor and
design to cars and clothes. In fact, they should have just stopped
in 1968. Aesthetically it really hasn't gotten any better since.
I'm a very loyal friend. I actually enjoy going to Ikea. I'm a
fairly good planner but find being spontaneous is usually much more
fun. It usually takes very little to twist my arm.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just moved to San Francisco for work. It was a big change since I'm
a Washington native who's lived in the Seattle area my whole life.
Add to that I was going from a 3 bedroom house to a 1 bedroom SF
apartment. I'm not really feeling the culture shock I thought I
would. It's very similar in a lot of ways. I'm getting settled into
the new job, new apartment, whole new life!
Other then that I'm trying the best to take care of myself. Stay as
grounded as possible. Be thankful for the things I have, rather
then being upset about the things I don't. I'm learning to let go
and forgive. Finding happiness in the moment. Being accepting and
open to opportunities that present themselves. All this while I
await the next chapter!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
In no particular order...
Coming up with a witty quip, most of the time sooner rather then
later. Being a good listener. Cutting it close. Drawing. Knowing
where my keys, phone and wallet are. Packing a car for a camping or
road trip. Trivia, especially the TV/Movies/Pop Culture stuffs.
Putting down the toilet seat. Quoting a line from Seinfeld for
every situation. Remembering birthdays. Reading a map. Separating
the laundry. Having one more if you'll have one too. Staying awake
longer then you. Picking out quality produce. Liking your Facebook
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Usually a plaid shirt, blue Chucks and a shine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Incredibles, The Lord of the Rings, Raiders of the Lost Ark,
When Harry Met Sally, The Dark Knight, Before Sunrise, Best in
Show, anything by Steven Spielberg. I'm woefully behind on current
movies though. Know of any good ones?
Currently set on the DVR - Mad Men, The Simpsons, 30 Rock, The
Office, Glee, Gossip Girl, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,
Smallville, Community, Modern Family, Grey's Anatomy and a dose of
reality TV. You'll have to guess which ones. RIP LOST, Veronica
Mars and Arrested Development. I also love Jeopardy! I've watched
this show nearly every day I'm home at 7:30 since the age of
I don't read nearly enough books. When I do it's usually the mass
market kind you'd find in an airport that literary snobs look down
upon i.e. Dan Brown or Michael Crichton. I just started The Girl
with the Dragon Tattoo.
I have a very wide range of music tastes. Some current music I'm
digging right now include Muse, Lady GaGa, Royksopp, MGMT,
Fischerspooner, Vampire Weekend, The Killers, Kylie Minogue just to
name a few. Lately I can't get enough Drum & Bass since going
to Burning Man. It's a regular internet radio play now. I've also
been updating the iPod via the library with music that I once had
on CD, tape or vinyl like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Cyndy Lauper,
The B-52s and Johnny Cash. I also like to check out the Time Life
style collections of music from the 70s and 80s. My old standbys
will always be film scores by John Williams and music from the 40s
- 60s by people like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgearld
etc. as well as The Beatles. Who doesn't love The Beatles though?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Beagle - I'd be lost without him
iPhone - What did I do before? I'm sure I don't want to find
Sense of Adventure - Life would be dull without.
A cold pint - Refreshing!
DVR - Frees up time to do important things, like surf the
Adobe Photoshop - I'd be very hungry and poor if I didn't have it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Again, in no particular order... How long this dog is going to keep
staring at me. What I should do next. Which bin to put this trash
in, there are too many choices now! Do I really want another cup of
coffee. Are we ever going to see an Arrested Development movie.
Stay in or go out for dinner. How people managed before mobile
technology. Door number 1, 2 or 3. What's with all the yoga pose
pictures on here. Why these new shoes are so hard to put on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm usually out and about on a Friday with friends searching for
the best happy hour deal. Sometimes, getting together for a game
night. Occasionally I'll stay in on a Friday and catch up on
laundry or DVR'd shows I missed because I was out all the other
nights of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In 5th grade I won a Michael Jackson dance contest. I danced to
"Billy Jean" in front of the entire school complete with glove and
red zipper jacket.
