I think the fact I was born and raised in Sonoma, CA, can explain why my hobby is eating and drinking wine- only to be supplemented by my second hobby of running triathlon or marathons to enable the first.
I am the friend that guys say is "a good dude" and girls say is "a good listener". I'm the guy at the wedding that dances with everyone and becomes best buddies with grandma.
I like nice Denim.
I like food and glass (bottle) of wine (I'm really good at ordering wine). I've got a soft spot for boat shoes, really short shorts, direct to consumer clothing brands, neon, and vintage sunglasses.
I love being composed.
I love pizza and Burritos.
I think that relationships are about being a team together and developing trust and loyalty. I'd like to think it's about finding the person you want to be the right person for rather than looking for the right person.
I love my cast iron skillet. I hate that my stove is not gas.
My favorite music is country. It's been a burden of mine since freshman year of high school. Also shameless lover of pop, 80's rock, 90's everything, and Dave M.
I'm listening to Shadow by Conrad Sewell. Right. Now.
What I’m doing with my life
Perfecting my pie crust. Adjusting to northeast winters. Brunch.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at cooking, facilitating conversations among groups of people that dont know each other, making friends with the boyfriends of my girlfriends, ordering food at a restaurant, and sharing.
I am also really good at planning.

The six things I could never do without
Wine, great food, family, friends, cured meat, Travel channel's No Reservations. National parks.
or trust, honesty, respect, character, and integrity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next meal. Traveling overseas. Why it's so cold in NYC. Why it takes 2 months for LL Bean to get a pair of snow boots to you, so when you order a pair 2 sizes too big in November only to learn that the new, correct size won't get to you until March, you sigh and wear the boots in NYC's 2nd most epic blizzard of all time.
On a typical Friday night I am
leaving the office for dinner somewhere...relieved I can leave the office.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I read all three Hunger Games books in a week.
I own multiple pairs of neon shorts with 5 inch inseams and I love them.
You should message me if
You might be someone that is active, shares my love of food, has a great sense of humor, and knows how to burn both ends of the candle.
Who loves their family and has a strong network of friends...that whole "you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep" kind of thing.
And you have to like rosé. In summer.
