What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a coffee shop while going to school for accounting.
Many of my nights can be spent with friends around drinks, or in at my place around a board game and Netflix.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can parallel park like a bad ass.
Overdressing for every occasion.
I'm a musician in some of my free time. I play piano occasionally at the Open Mic. I've done some stand up comedy as well.
I got a red ribbon at the Iowa State Fair when I was 13 playing "Ach Du Lieber Augustin" on harmonica. I was beat by an 8 year old who played "Oh Susana". I am still quite bitter. It was rigged.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My short hair and my smile. I'm usually sportin' some fly duds from the thrift store.
I'm probably laughing at something "inappropriate"
I'll stand around uninterested while everyone else is dancing. But if a Billy Idol, Smiths, or Cure song comes on, I'm on my feet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot of nonfiction and almost got tricked into buying the self-help guide to people who are addicted to self help books. Some favorites are The Happiness Project, the Abarat series by Clive Barker, Chobits, Hardcore Zen, and Catwoman comics.

Some of my favorite movies are Edward Scissorhands, Moulin Rogue, Before Sunrise, Big Fish, Amadeus, Yes Man, Harvey, Chaplin, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I'll watch anything with Johnny Depp or Christopher Walken.

I love Doctor Who, Sherlock, Once Upon a Time, Misfits, the Mighty Boosh, IT Crowd, Peewee's Playhouse, Ghost Adventures, X-files, and Adventure Time. And I almost forgot the Golden Girls. If I were a Golden Girl, I'd be Bea Arthur's character Dorothy. Straight and to the point and sassy.

I love the Cure, Morrissey, Adam Ant, ELO, the Zombies, Butch Walker, Oingo Boingo, M83, The Darkness, Noah and the Whale, Dr. Dog, Duke Special, Reel Big Fish, The Specials, Gogol Bordello, Meatloaf, and Green Day. The list could go on and on, but I'll keep it to this. New wave, Ska, Punk, 80's stuff, Post Punk.

I love Big Tomato Pizza.
My favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate raspberry.
I want to be a better cook, and I think I do all right for myself. I've been told I make "stoner" food. Cheese. Carbs.
I really wanted to like tea, but I just can't. It was hard to come to terms with.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my piano
my dog
my laptop
my stuffed rabbit
my car (in Des Moines at least)
my phone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
learning how to play accordion, how to ride a unicycle, and how to speak German so I can run away and join a circus in Bavaria. It is my dream.

When I return back to my homeland after years of the vagabond circus life, I want to open an Ice Cream parlor.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
out late with friends making runs to gas stations and pizza places.
We laugh, listen to jazz records, take gratuitous amounts of photos on instagram, watch the newest Adventure Time or Legend of Kora episode together, and play Mariokart, Goldeneye, or Ocarina of Time til 4am.

It's pretty rad.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I work in a coffee shop. And I don't drink coffee.
People ask me all the time "Why?" and I simply answer
"Because it tastes nasty."
