Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm hardworking, smart, and always active. I'm looking to get to
know someone who also has a good sense of humor, likes trying new,
challenging things, and will help push me.
I have always appreciated music. I am a classically trained tenor,
and enjoy everything from classical to rock and roll. I founded and
ran an a cappella group in college, and still sometimes work as a
voice coach for some of my friends who are actors and
I enjoy reading, and will go through anything I can get my hands
on. I particularly like philosophy and literature, but a good
mystery novel is always fun.
I'm a foodie. I love cooking, trying new food, finding great little
hidden places to eat. Chicago has been great for trying new
I'm a huge college sports fan. During football and hockey season,
you can be sure I'll be cheering on my beloved Boston College
Eagles! However, I'm a good sport about it. Losses don't get me
down, and I don't hate other teams the way some sports fans do.
Case in point: I'm a Green Bay Packers fan, and my roommate is a
Chicago Bears fan - we get along great!
I've got a great sense of humor. I used to do stand-up comedy for
fun. As long as you don't mind that sometimes I swing at the punch
line and miss, we'll get along great.
My friends describe me as loyal, patient, and understanding. I view
myself as a problem-solver, and I am great at looking at things
from a long-term perspective.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
On weekdays I typically read, or work on my stock market blog. On
the weekends I love going out to brunch, getting coffee, going
dancing with my friends, or trying something new. I'm starting to
take some classes and have been helping a theater company with the
business side of things since I moved into town.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing, solving problems, and having good clean fun. I'm always
learning new things and reading something interesting.

have on his bookshelf

I'll try anything once. I really like Sushi, Italian, and
I like a wide range of styles. I enjoy everything from classical to
classic rock. I really appreciate excellence. I can enjoy any style
if the performer and composer have made something really fantastic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Great music
2) The Muppets
4) My family
5) Something good to read
6) My Boston College Eagles!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make things work - I'm a "make it happen" kind of guy. If I
hear a cool idea I like to plan out how to execute.
Business - I have developed a passion for long-term value
investing, and I love analyzing companies and trying to understand
what is a good bargain. Two of my heroes are Peter Lynch and Warren
Buffett - men who were excellent investors, but did not just use
their talent to swindle their partners. They worked hard to help
make other people successful, and now both have decided to use
their talent and resources to do incredible charitable work. I have
a lot of respect for that, and I'd like to follow their example. My
goal is to run a mutual fund and help people save for college and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm always doing something - but rarely the same thing twice. I
