Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When I have a passion for something, I don't do it half-hearted. I
am a very diverse person with a lot of interests and things I want
to accomplish in life. Though not particularly wealthy, famous, or
good-looking, I do have a charm about me that many find enduring
and some find annoying. So here's a bit about me:
1) I'm a photographer. Some of my images will probably make me
appear more appealing than what I am. I do it for a living, both
running my own business and managing a fairly well-known American
2) Travelling kicks ass. I left my job early 2011 and took some
time off to travel. It was the best thing I ever did. Don't want to
bore you with a list of places I've been but the last really cool
trip was to Kenya in July to work on a refugee camp!
3) Other stuff I like: playing basketball (I'm a Raptors' fan),
attending food related events food and art events, pretty regular
travel, going to live concerts, and the occasional round of
4) I adore music. It's such a huge part of my life. I go to my fair
share of concerts.
5) I have a pretty interesting background and believe every person
has an interesting and unique story.
6) Life is so beautiful, we forget this sometimes. I've never been
happier or in a better space in my life than right now. It feels
great and I want to share it.
