Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. Thanks for taking a look. I'm a writer (actually employed)
living in DC. I love DC's ethnic diversity, internationalism, green
environment, active communities, dive bars and unique restaurants.
I'm a big fan of travel and other cultures. I read a ton. I love
live music, good friends and a cold pint, being outside, being
athletic. I enjoy design and architecture, being involved with my
community, politics and meeting new people. I believe life is to be
enjoyed and explored. That can be something as simple as helping a
homeless kid in Bahia, Brazil (I think he ended up ripping me off,
but that's another story) or sampling Sangrita con Tequila in every
Mexico City joint you can find. I love the ocean - or more
specifically - sitting on my surfboard 100 yards out at dusk with
sore muscles and a satisfied grin. I'll leave the rest for
discussion over a cold pint/glass of wine.
(Except - on the advice of a female friend who said my profile
might be a little heavy on the adventure, I'm also a homeowner who
knows where the forks go, knows the length a cuff should protrude
from a suit and am comfortable chatting (and have) with senators,
CEOs, and one's highly conventional parents:)
So ... what am I looking for? I'm a "know her when I see her" kind
of guy. But in the abstract, it would be good if she were witty,
intelligent, social, independent, interested in the world,
attractive to me, kind, adventurous, enjoys travel of all forms and
is always (or almost always) up for a quality pint/glass of wine
and good conversation.
OKC used to have a section here where they asked for three words to
describe yourself. So, I am: witty, kind and perceptive. (And tall)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Is this an existential question? Should I CC my parents on this?

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite movie .. hands down ... Sexy Beast. The cinematography,
writing and Ben Kingley's performance were just really unique.
Books - currently reading two: Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku
and an anthology of Spanish language literature that has the
English translations on the opposite page. (I need to peak
occasionally). In terms of music, almost anything live. And for
food ... whatever fills the soul and is shared with friends. Though
I do have a warm spot for Cajun cuisine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
discovery, travel, kindness, a hot shower over tired, sore muscles,
unmitigated moments of joy and really good beer. And the ocean, but
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully, there are no typical Friday nights. But if I had to
choose a theme, it would be sharing good times.
