Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to consider myself a good guy, if i were to describe myself
in a series of adjectives they'd be: funny, well spoken,
gregarious, loyal, generous and reliable. I definitely pride myself
on being a good son, brother, uncle and friend. I live and work in
Center City, but grew up in the northeast and still get up there
once or twice a week. I recently adopted a roommate from PAWS,
she's a Beagle/Jack Russell mix who loves a good belly rub and gets
way too many treats.
As for my intent here, I am at the age where most of my friends are
settled/settling down and leaving the 'bar scene' behind and I
figured, since the internet and social media are the preferred
method of finding what you're looking for in every other walk of
life, why not give this a shot. I am not looking to get married in
three months, but I also don't want to be the 45 year old dad at
kindergarten and tee ball games.
I have traveled somewhat in my life, only left the country twice
though, and once was Montreal (not that Canada isn't a foreign
country, but c'mon, its Canada). Some of my favorite cities are
Chicago, San Francisco, Memphis, New Orleans, and my favorite place
on Earth is Disney World. I know it sounds absurd, but the place
really is magic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an IT analyst at a financial institution. I live in Fairmount
and its nice to be able to walk to work (or sleep an extra 12
minutes and take the bus) and not have to battle traffic to/from
the office or drive into town on weekends to hang out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
telling stories and jokes; making light of just about any
situation; I am extremely quick witted, I can pull a movie or
television reference out of the clear blue; as far as serious stuff
goes, I am honest, loyal and go out of my way to keep my word.

My eyes earn me the most compliments, I'm also pretty tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

When it comes to books, I read a lot of sociology, history,
biographies and of course the classics. I am pretty sure its an
online site mandate that everyone has to say To Kill a Mockingbird
or Catcher in the Rye are their favorite books, so I'll oblige, but
really The Outsiders is my favorite book.
Musically, my top three artists are Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen
and The Rolling Stones. Beyond them, I like pretty much anything
you'd find on a good jukebox in a corner bar. And, I have a love
and respect for Motown and old soul/R&B that is unnatural for a
30-something year old white guy... can't get enough Sam Cooke or
While my TV is usually on, its mostly background noise or sports or
some kind of syndicated reruns just to serve as white noise. When I
am paying attention, I watch a staggering amount of HGTV and DIY
for a guy who doesn't own tools or a house. I more or less like to
see what the cost of living is across the country. Boggles my mind
when you see people in the midwest buying a 4 bedroom house in the
suburbs for the price of a rowhome in Camden or North Philly. When
it comes to scripted shows, I'd trade almost all of it for one day
as Tim Riggins. Walter White froze to death in the car and the rest
was his dying dream. Roger Sterling was the real star of Mad
My favorite foods are more of the standards, pizza, Italian,
Chinese, barbecue, sandwiches (love a good PB&J). I gave up
soda a few years ago as a new year's resolution and am amazed at
how I don't miss it at all. I drink a ton of water, gatorade and
crystal light. When it comes time to let my hair down, I am a
pretty cut and dry beer guy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Aside from "family and friends" which everyone seems to put here,
but kinda goes without saying:
Phone, q-tips, mouthwash, sweatpants, sports (Eagles, Phillies,
Flyers, Sixers and Buckeyes), my debit card
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My life as a lottery winner... Chip Kelly's plan... Mostly just
random and obscure facts that will certainly never come in hand.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
either out to happy hour, possibly a Phillies game, etc. or I'm on
the couch catching up on the TV I've missed that week with two
slices of pizza.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My best friend is an eight year old girl... my niece.

I'm probably not)
