Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm outgoing, sarcastic, and a big fan of food truck fairs.
I moved to Los Angeles from New York City, but am from Portland, OR
I think I'm a pretty good/great date (ie: opens doors, can hold a
conversation, etc) - but you'll have to offer your own assessment.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working behind the scenes in TV...hoping to one day write for the
small screen. I enjoy a solid TV talk, but would like to think my
interests are pretty varied.
I taught middle school special education in New York, and haven't
ruled out a return to the classroom in the future. For now, I
volunteer with a youth organization on Saturdays.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying to be funny...and sometimes succeeding! Also, listening?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no clue. I could take some guesses, but I feel like that
would go into a real self-conscious realm. You'll just have to
decide for yourself if you see me in person...but, uh, keep it to
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Shows: Currently watching "Friday Night Lights" for the first time,
and am pretty hooked on that. Parenthood, Buffy, The Wire, New
Girl, Happy Endings (RIP), and Orange Is the New Black are other
Music: iPod picks rotate between J. Cole, Rihanna, No Doubt,
Kendrick Lamar, and some indie pop-rock hits. I pride myself on
being able to curate the perfect playlist for any occasion.
Movies: Attack the Block, The Spectacular Now, Young Adult, Mean
Books: I got rid of most of my books when I left New York, thinking
"I should really just get books at the library, instead of paying
for them." Since arriving in LA, I have visited the library
approximately 0 times, and have continued making regular purchases
at Barnes & Noble. Will take book recommendations...but it has
to have an awesome cover.
Food: Always up for trying anything!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hittin' da club.
Or, 99.9% of the time....
Watching Netflix, having dinner with friends, or going on a long
evening run. (But, re: the club - I like to think I can bust out
the dance moves after a good hour of two-stepping/warming up, so a
night out is always okay)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're sarcastic, a fellow conversation specialist, and interested
in meeting up! Let's avoid the regular "conversation over drinks"
first OKCupid meet-up and do something different - We can explore a
neighborhood in LA, go to an improv show at UCB, or be adventurous
and buy snacks we don't recognize in Koreatown!
If you think we might have something in common, reach out! I'll
definitely respond - as soon as I finish wading through ALL the
other messages (kidding...expect a reply soon).
