I'm a nice, grounded, guy who's easy-going with an ambitious streak. I value passion, drive, and smarts in others.
I've been single for a few years now, and while I love my friends and my independence, I'm also ready to meet a great guy and build something more.
Let's split a bottle of wine at the cool wine bar down the block. Let's cook a big dinner party for our friends. Let's go for long runs together and push each other to do better.
What I’m doing with my life
I've loved the airline industry ever since I was a kid and now I'm the guy that you can blame when you think airline tickets are too expensive. I use my travel benefits as much as I can and I love flying to a beach for a weekend with a big stack of magazines and books.
Outside of work, I like to run and read and drink wine.
I’m really good at
- Explaining why the airline industry works in the crazy ways it does (BTW - there is no "perfect" time to buy the cheapest ticket)
- Throwing big dinner parties
- Running for a long time
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard. It's not a permanent fixture, but I've had it now for a while. I find that people make the oddest offhand comments about it (like, "I'm in awe of your man hair" -- true story).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read. I'm in two book clubs and teetering on the edge of being able to keep up. A Little Life blew my mind and I'm afraid I won't read anything as good anytime soon.
From a music standpoint, I'm all over the place. I have a soft spot for lesbian folk music, Motown girl groups, showtunes, Celia Cruz, and folk/pop people like Joanna Newsom and Sufjan Stevens.
From a TV standpoint, I'm loving The Good Wife and Grace & Frankie, and (still) have a very soft spot for Grey's Anatomy.
The six things I could never do without
1. Air travel and the ability to fly away on a whim
2. "$100,000 Pyramid" reruns (which have been unceremoniously removed from GSN and I am distraught)
3. Running shoes
4. A strong fan when I sleep
5. Newspapers and books in print form
6. Activities requiring stamina
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why so many people think it's acceptable to text while walking up and down the subway stairs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely having a very relaxed dinner or drinks with friends at home or out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often wonder why sex is not discussed in a more upfront way in these profiles.
You should message me if
If you'd be up for getting together and grabbing a drink. I think first dates are fun.
And as we say at work, "feedback is a gift." Constructive feedback on the profile is always appreciated.
