Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I hew towards optimism but have learned to be realistic and
measured in my approach towards life and people.
Here are a few other tidbits:
1. I grew up in Florida and through school/work have made my way up
the Eastern seaboard. I'm now a New Yorker but hold fiercely onto
my small town roots.
2. My best friends are my dogs Felix and Athena. They enrich my
life beyond words. Obviously, we're not going to be a match if you
aren't into dogs.
3. One of my goals is to visit all 50 states before I'm 40. I'm 30
states into it so I have a lot of work ahead of me in the next few
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Career-wise, I'm a corporate/intellectual property lawyer. it takes
up a lot of my time and I love it.
My hobbies include playing piano, traveling, putting together lego
sets, and hiking. I'm pretty game to trying out most things at
least once, so if you're looking for an activity companion count me
in. I also volunteer with various causes, legal and non-legal. It
helps keep me centered.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. Staying cool under pressure.
2. Recalling random trivia useful only for jeopardy and quiz
3. Fantasy football.
4. Cracking irreverent jokes to break the ice.
5. Always giving life my best shot.
6. Dancing my ass off.

I have a goofball grin and will most likely be distracted by
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love both "respectable literature" (e.g., on the Booker
Prize short list) and trashy summer mindless reading (e.g., Anne
Rice novels, Sookie Stackhouse series). I generally alternate from
fiction and nonfiction in my queue.
Movies: summer blockbuster/action and comedies. I like indies also,
but not the over-the-top contrived ones.
Shows: Mindy Project, Sleepy Hollow, OITNB
Music: Musician at heart and appreciate lots of genres. Really love
going to concerts.
Food: I typically stick to Asian and Latin but open to all kinda of
food. Not a big fan of organ meats, however.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm pretty self sufficient and don't need much to get by, but
here's a few in no particular order:
Dark Chocolate, FSU football and sports in general, NYC in the
fall, National Geographic magazine, Legos, and my dogs Felix &
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I am making good decisions and where life will take me in the
next few years. What kind of qualities I truly value in a man and
what I need to bring to the table to make something wonderful
happen. On a more flippant note, I daydream about how I'd survive
in a dystopic future, especially a zombie apocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Taking it easy or hanging out with friends. Chillin with the dogs
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love watching Monster Truck competitions and had a "Bigfoot" t
shirt as a kid. (Update: I can be a nervous flyer sometimes, which
is a buzzkill considering how much I love to travel).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're fun, confident, interesting, and honest. You're mature and
have a sense of where you are going with life and are open to
getting to know someone on a less than superficial level. If any of
the above appeals to you and you'd like to get to know more of the
details, hit me up. Thanks guys!
Disclaimer: you must be ok with dogs. My two dogs are big parts of
my life and I wouldn't trade them for the world.
