Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just got back to Boston after living in London for a while and
while I'm still charged up on fish and chips and free health care,
I'm happy to be back in a country where they will serve you a quart
of iced coffee and not even bat an eyelid.
Because this is the online age, I've polled friends to make your
decision easier and have excellent feedback:
Caroline - Paris - 4/5 stars - Cool dude, definitely worth a
Josh - Boston- 5/5 stars - Highly recommended, A++
Hanna - London - 3/5 stars - Laughs at his own jokes a lot more
than he should. Puts the spoons in the knife section of the
silverware drawer just to annoy me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Search engine designer by day
Aspiring polyglot by... well... also during the day
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"Cooking with wine - sometimes I even add it to the food"
Also, starting books and never finishing them. I really should go
on America's Got Talent for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My striking resemblance to Denzel Washington.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a really hard time picking favorites and I will generally go
through phases, so this list will be the revolving list of
characters rather than specific artists and books. If you have a
suggestion, or would like one, let me know!
Books: Historical fiction/non-fiction, self-improvement, fiction,
Movies/Shows: Not much time for these, but when I do, pretty much
Music: Alternative Rock, some indy rock, electronic
Food: Lots please
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Holy crap, 6 things?? Umm...
Ear plugs - I live above a regrettably mediocre clarinet player
with a rotating 3 song set list.
Caffeine - Preferably not the nasty caramel k-cups that nobody will
finish at my office
Squash/Cycling/Skiing - Not big on watching sports, but love
Globetrotting (I'm rubbish with a basketball, so the literal
definition) - Lived in 5 countries, and traveled to 25 others.
Going for 50 before 50 years old!
My cockatiel, Nick. He prefers guys to girls and I'll ask you to
respect his life choices.
I'm running low on things I could never do without (so much
hyperbole on this site), but I'm sliding this bullet in there
hoping you won't notice me skimping the list.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
World politics, racial and gender equality, but I'll also sometimes
delve into much more pressing issues such as how you would handcuff
a one-armed man.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Faffing about Boston. This is, in fact, my favo(u)rite English word
that I learned and I was desperate to weave it into my profile
somehow. I hope you understand.

coffee, and not being Dimitri...)
