Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I jetted out of the midwest 11 years ago, quit my job in
advertising and drove a U-Haul to San Francisco and decided to stay
for awhile in Northern California. After being here so long, I'm
starting to wonder how I tolerated the frigid cold for so many
years. Being from the midwest makes me polite, so that's working in
My mom says I'm loud, but I prefer the term gregarious. I just like
good banter back and forth and love a good story. I'm a very social
creature to a point, once I go out and get my fill of people I end
up retreating home to be introspective and read or draw.
I was on National Honors Society in high school. I haven't used
that gem since my college application, so I deem it appropriate to
use here. It may garner me more female attention than I anticipate,
but I'm willing to take that risk.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a small mobile startup. I was working as a designer in
tech before everyone starting hating on it and setting Google buses
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Doodling, writing, getting out of the house and tromping around the
woods, being boisterous, antagonizing my friends, blowing off
responsibilities on a sunny afternoon.
This year I've been really good at getting myself to the gym,
usually three days a week.
I excel at sleeping in on the weekends too, and I can eat a pint of
ice cream unprompted.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm ethnically ambiguous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Siddhartha, Slaughterhouse Five, 1Q84, Adventures of Kavalier and
Clay, The Gods Themselves, Anything by Chuck Klosterman. I'm
currently reading 'The Corrections' and trying to decide whether I
like Franzen or think he's a pretentious dick. Maybe I like that
he's a pretentious dick.
Eternal Sunshine, Solaris, Safety Not Guaranteed, Butch Cassidy
& The Sundance Kid, Goodfellas, Adaptation, Princess Mononoke,

Dodos, Geographer, Luxury Liners, Local Natives, Pinback, Tallest
Trees... Oof too much music to go into, but that's what I got on
In other media I love TED radio hour, WTF podcast with Marc Maron
and This American Life. Podcasts help move the work day along.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, music, art, sour worms, humor and the outdoors.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I'm not drawing or painting more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Half the time I like going out, trying new restaurants, making San
Francisco my own personal playground. But, the other half of me
likes to hide out on Friday with a dinner in and Yahtzee. And watch
the drunk kids woo as they stumble beneath my window.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I watch Ellen and the Golden Girls while I'm at the gym.
