Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A man of many hats.
I believe people are good, and when they lower their walls, they're
all pretty interesting.
I don't believe in following the beaten path or the one imposed by
another entity. I ask questions, I think, I challenge, and I
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fitpro: teach people to believe in themselves and expand their
worlds through serious training.
Lecturer: teach people to fitpro.
Lots of writing, reading, and constantly building on knowledge of
myself and the world around me.
Current new developments: Real Estate license under construction
and my first martial arts experience.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Turning clapping and shouting into something presentable. I've been
complimented by strangers on whistling.
Seamlessly fitting hours of audiobook and podcast-listening into a
Making myself uncomfortable in the spirit of growth.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think a lot (a LOT).
Depending on the time and season, I might also be hiding my skin
from the death rays of the sun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
MUSIC: Super open-minded - I just love MUSIC in general!
Progressive metal (Dream Theater, Symphony X), prog-rock (Spock's
Beard, Rush), 80s 90s and 00s vocal pop (Kelly Clarkson, Christina
Aguilera), praise/gospel, pop punk (Blink 182, Green Day, Sum41,
Avril) lil bit o' country (Chris Cagle, Jason Aldean, Craig
Morgan), 80s/90s hip hop (Dre, Diddy, Jurassic 5), the classics
(Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, et al) and tons of stuff in
I may or may not also love singing Disney songs.
MOVIE: Forrest Gump is my favorite emotional rollercoaster.
Star Wars is awesome.
Last movie I enjoyed in theaters was Straight Outta Compton.
But honestly, movies don't do much for me normally. I also never
think funny movies are funny. I'd rather see live comedians. Maybe
TV: I'm a total TV recluse, but ditching my TV years ago was one of
the best things I've ever done. Like, in life.
[but I still love stupid vine compilations on youtube.]
BOOKS: Best book I read this year was The Brain That Changes
Currently reading: Stumbling on Happiness.
FOOD: I very much like traditional Mexican, Indian, and Asian
cuisines. Despite a great appreciation for fine flavors, I'm pretty
simple (read: boring) on a day-to-day basis and easily subsist on
the same meals on repeat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Musical instruments. Pie-annas, geetors, durms, wissles,
claire-nets, whatevers. Anything to express the universal language
A healthy, strong body. "At least you've got your health," they
say. How could you disagree? The quality of my days is greater
because I'm able to ride my bike wherever for however long, I'm not
tired, I'm not afraid to try new activities because I fear my body
won't be able to keep up.
A good chef's knife. Have you ever tried to cut fruits, meats, and
veggies with a dull knife? A hammer works better.
The internet and its infinite wisdom. As privileged Americans, we
have no excuse not to know everything there is to know about
whatever we like. The resources are so vast and limitless. I'm
excited to see where education goes in the next fifty years when
our generation has taken over.
Sunny skies (sorry Seattle and London). They're just nicer.
That feeling of flying / falling / going really fast with wind in
your face. Remember what it means to be alive. And a little bit
scared. Like every day when you were a kid. That's when you
developed the most and had the most fun. There's wisdom in that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Physical preparation, different lifestyles and cultures, novel
experiences, the brain.
Why Philly doesn't cover all the trolley tracks I've NEVER seen
used for anything other than protecting the streets from uninjured
People who truly just don't want to ever have kids. By definition,
they don't visualize themselves as old 60-80+ year olds called
"grampa" or "gramma". That's strange to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes social play, sometimes intellectual indulgence; whatever
brings me the most stimulation.
You should message me if
