Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In 20 bullet points or less:
1. I laugh hysterically at stupid pet videos on YouTube.
2. I find dive bars humorous.
3. I love to car camp. I have a tent that is big enough for 8
people just for me (it would be better with one other person in
there with me). You can put luggage, a full kitchen, and a queen
sized bed in there. Ask me how I know.
4. Intelligent, but can say some totally blonde things sometimes
(no offense to blondes, just saying...)
5. I drove the chase boat for the local youth America's Cup team as
well as ran their logistics and operations. That was totally cool,
a lot of work, and I met a lot of people in the sailing
6. I have a teenage boy sense of humor.
7. Passionate about sailing.
8. Can cook just about anything. Have recently run out of a huge
bottle of Sriracha (the spicier the better).
9. Extroverted, but enjoy it when someone else can carry the
10. Plays clarinet and piano, but not always well.
11. Tries to watch Jeopardy every night (though I don't generally
watch much TV).
12. Loves to travel. Planning on going to Turkey in the spring
2014, and wouldn't mind doing an extended trip to New Zealand later
in the year.
13. Loves NPR.
15. Excellent at pub trivia and cards and can play a mean game of
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for myself at home, so I spend a lot of time trying to find
ways to not work as much as the rest of the corporate world. I
travel as much as I can, even if it's just up to Sonoma Valley or
down to Austin.
I spent a lot of time this year working for an America's Cup team,
so I'm trying to refocus my energies on getting to know my friends
again and sailing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
taking time off and doing pretty much what I want to do. Cooking,
sailing and getting to know people seem to be a forte of mine.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Finding humor in everyday silliness.
2. Good and caring friends.
4. My car. It's hell getting around here without a car.
5. No drama.
6. My fingers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how funny most things in life are, and I wonder why everyone else
doesn't think everything is funny.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging out with friends and supporting the local Point Richmond
economy (at the yacht club).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

is that I love watching Glee.

you think you might find me interesting (or you really just want to
test out your mad pub trivia skills). You are interested in
learning how to sail (I'm a good teacher), you might be interested
in traveling, or you just want to hang out with someone who's up
for laughing, dinner and drinks. Or, you just want to learn how to
play Mexican Train (you bring the rum).
