Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the seemingly quiet guy you see sitting with a sketchbook in
the corner of the bar, coffee shop, or park bench, but sit down
beside me and I'll tell you funny stories for hours.
I generally have my hands in several projects at once. I'm a
Landscape Architect, and recently opened my own firm, but I also
practice architectural and furniture design, graphic design,
illustration and IT consulting. Like many designers, the recession
hit me pretty hard and after basically starting again from scratch,
I'm finally feeling like I'm back on my feet. I love the fact I
work from home and the flexibility of working for myself, but it
also kind of scares the hell out of me.
I'm happiest working with my hands, whether repurposing old
furniture, building my own designs, or helping friends with
construction projects, but wandering through old warehouses,
auction houses or estate sales ranks pretty highly also.
I've played music since I was 6 years old including drums, guitar
and piano, and after college took a few years off to record and
tour. My rock star dream has passed, but I still get together
frequently with friends to play on weekend getaways, and a couple
of shows a year.
I have a great group of friends and I cherish my family, and I tend
to get along best with liberally minded, empathic folks who are
skeptically optimistic. I do have a bit of a sardonic side which
can come out in in the form of sarcasm, self-deprecating humor and
playful teasing (Louis CK meets Lewis Black) but never with mean
Ideally, I'm looking for someone who values authenticity, embraces
their unique qualities, and prefers the road less traveled....and
I'm a huge sucker for brown eyes. I don't care what you do for a
profession, as long as you have a passion in your life.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It's never really typical. Out with friends, working for a client
or on a personal project, or just chilling out after a long week.
