Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who am I? Here's the quick and dirty:
I've led a pretty random life in a lot of ways but that's one of
the things I like best about myself. Good stories and good
experiences are the only things you're going to take with you when
you die, so why not have as many of them as possible?
I'm a contradiction in some ways. I flew for the Navy which might
imply a certain amount of dudebro-ness, but trust me, I hate that
guy as much as you do. I value humility and self deprecation in
others and try to live that way myself.
I tend to be a pretty gregarious person. I love meeting people and
getting to know their story. I'd like to think I have a pretty good
sense of humor as I can usually get a laugh or a smile out of most
people I meet. I also tend to be positive and enthusiastic about
pretty much everything if for no other reason than it just makes
life more fun (but I'd also like to think that I don't come across
as the annoying Polyanna type either).
I will have more pictures on my profile soon. OKCupid blocked me
out of my profile for a while and when I was finally able to get in
again it had been erased so I'm still rebuilding it. I can't for
the life of me figure out why that happened. I find it hard to
believe mine was offensive by OKCupid standards.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wow, good question. I finished my Masters degree in Hong Kong about
a year or two ago and have now been reactivated by the Navy for and
am currently Deployed to Djibouti for a year. The goal is, by the
end of my activation, to have a civilian job doing international
engagement somewhere in the federal government.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Meeting people - I've discovered that I have my grandfather's knack
for never having met a stranger. It's also partly a reaction to
having been a hyper-shy/insecure teenager.
Traveling - I just filled my second passport and am excited to
start filling the third. Touching down in a new country is one of
my favorite things.
Breakdancing - I'm a pop-locking fool. Gimme a piece of cardboard
and Whodini track and I'll tear it UP!
I'm kidding. That's not even a little bit true. Any attempt at
breakdancing would just end in the E.R.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm usually smiling or laughing. Seriously, who wants to be around
someone who has a crappy attitude all the time? Or more to the
point, who wants to *be* someone with a crappy attitude all the
time? Life's too short.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll start off by saying that Arrested Development is the best show
in the history of television. If you haven't seen it, I'll try not
to hold it against you, but if you have and don't like it...it
might be a dealbreaker.
My music tastes are pretty broad. I know a lot of people say they
love all kinds of music, but I can prove it. I own about 350 CDs,
200-250 vinyl records, and 30,000+ mp3s. There really is a little
My movie tastes are equally as broad but the top of my list
includes just about anything involving Daniel Day Lewis or the Coen
The TV shows in my DVR list include: Louie, Doctor Who, Mad Men,
Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Community, Justified, Portlandia, Daily
Show, Last week Tonight with John Oliver, Sons of Anarchy, The
League, Bob's Burgers, Archer, Parks & Rec, SNL, Mythbusters,
Top Gear, Hell on Wheels...among others.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My passport - I'm a travel addict. If I don't get a new stamp in
the passport every six months or so I get really antsy. I've
already filled one passport and am about to order more pages for
the second. the second.
Good people - I've been able to do a lot of amazing things in my
life, but I also recognize that none of it would have been possible
without the amazing family, friends, teachers, and mentors I've had
in my life.
Good conversation - I love people and there's nothing I love more
than sitting in a bar with a good jukebox and solving the world's
problems over beer.
Good bourbon - As a native Kentuckian it's in my blood. I love
teaching people about it and have even held a couple of bourbon
tastings for friends.
Good TV - I'll be the first to admit that I should read more than I
do, but I tend to read a lot at work and by the time I get home my
motivation to read more is diminished to say the least. But there's
a lot of really, really good TV right now that is super intelligent
The internet - I'm a tech junkie but I accept that about myself.
However, I will turn my phone off when we see each other.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Heh. Wouldn't *you* like to know, you cheeky little monkey, you!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully out with friends having a good time, but I no longer feel
like I MUST go out every Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd tell you but I'm not sure if the statute of limitations has
