Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Totally awesome dude from Maine. Lived in LA for 4 years where I
worked for a Disney Channel show and wrote for CollegeHumor and
Nerdist. I have just moved back to the east coast due to a
disenchantment with writing as a profession and a preference to be
closer to family. Now living in Boston and working for a commercial
real estate firm.
I am very into the outdoors and am constantly planning
hunting/fishing/skiing trips in Maine. I also lived in Colorado for
a period and miss the west dearly. I usually make it out once a
year to visit my brother who still lives in Denver.
I am also very into woodworking and built furniture from reclaimed
wood on a regular basis in LA. Very eager to get back into it but
sadly sold all my power tools when I moved back east. If you have a
table saw you're looking to get rid of, let me know.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in commercial real estate. When I am not working I am
either exploring Boston, hanging with my niece and nephew (1 &
3), or driving up to Maine for the weekend.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Saying yes to whatever day trip idea pops into your head. I am
always ready to drive out to any beach/mountain/lake I haven't been
to before and will never get tired of the New England
Taking on massive cooking challenges. I once bought a 30 lb pig and
slow cooked in the ground for 12 hours. I am also slowly gaining
proficiency with Indian cooking but it will likely be a few more
decades before that is mastered.
Posing and debating meaningless questions. Ex. Which would win in a
fight - bear or mountain lion?

Unless you always wear a massive cowboy hat, I don't see how this
question has any value.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies - Somewhat of a snob when it comes to comedy. I like smart
ones like Superbad, Orange County, and I Heart Huckabees and dumb
ones like Airplane, Top Secret and Not Another Teen Movie. I'm
pretty easy to please in every other genre.
TV - The Office was the show that made me want to write, though I
have stopped paying attention to it as of late. My true favorites
are Always Sunny, Family Guy, and The Colbert Report. As much as I
hate hearing other people say this - I have started watching a lot
of British comedy recently. Given the choice, I will always opt for
a Seinfeld re-run before any of these.
Books - The last novel I read for pleasure was probably Hatchet by
Gary Paulson (~8th grade) or something in the Matt Christopher
canon. The books I gravitate towards are typically the more
scientific ones like The Selfish Gene, Guns Germs and Steel, and At
The Water's Edge. That said, I am attempting James Joyce's Ulysses
at the moment. Sometimes I'll just curl up by the fire and read the
iTunes User Agreement or a good Adobe Licensing Update.
Music - Pretty much like it all (including country) but classic
rock is certainly my favorite genre. Springsteen, Seger, CCR,
Petty, Zeppelin. Bob Dylan never misses in my opinion and I own 18
Van Morrison albums. I'm also pretty into the SportsCenter theme
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The state of Maine, seafood, India pale ales, Van Morrison, the
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Taking complicated and impractical adventures to remote sections of
the world. Jungles, mountains, desserts. Basically any place I've
read about in National Geographic.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Coaching the Dillon Panthers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It was me. I let the dogs out.
