Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a mellow guy with a boisterous wit who is trying to maximize
fun in all its forms. I've got lots of great friends, I'm confident
and opinionated, and I'm pretty close to my immediate family.
At night I actively practice the comedic arts (I am a regular
performer in the clubs, bars, and theaters around Philly), and I
somehow managed to land a day job where they give me health and
dental for making kids happy.
Beer, bacon, basketball, books, my bike, and I play the guitar.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a professional puppeteer. No, seriously. I work in a
children's theater and perform puppet shows. It's a great job. I
get a salary and I get to be creative every day.
"How the hell did you end up as a puppeteer?" Good question. Glad
you asked. My job is a two-sided coin: one side is theater, the
other is education.
On the theatrical side I am an owner of a comedic theater company.
We have performed weekly improv shows in Old City for the past 9
On the educational side, I used to be a teacher. Education is a
passion of mine and now I can pursue it in a unique way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a high free throw percentage.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, that depends...
Currently I'm rocking a beard. When I rock a beard, the beard is
usually the first thing that people notice (hmm... "notice" isn't a
strong enough term. "Gape at in wonder and awe" would be more
When I don't rock a beard, I think the first impression I usually
give off (or hope I give off) is that I'm friendly and funny.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love Faulkner, I conquered Infinite Jest, and I'm a big
fan of humorous nonfiction like David Sedaris, Sarah Vowell, or
Movies: I can get into something ponderous and arty, or I can enjoy
a sweet action flick. Top five would probably be: The Original Star
Wars Trilogy (which only counts as one), Rushmore, City of God,
Pulp Fiction, and Airplane.
Also in the top five (since I have more than five top five) The
Princess Bride, Days of Heaven AND Badlands, the first two
Godfathers (obviously), Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Blazing Saddles,
The Big Lebowski, Raiders (duh), U.H.F. (THE most underrated film
in human history), anything that the names Spielberg or Kubrick are
associated with, I'll probably be happy with.
Shows: There are too many good shows on right now. I can't follow
them all! I love Breaking Bad, the Walking Dead, and Arrested
Development. I'm behind on Game of Thrones (so no spoilers). But
either The Simpsons seasons 3-9 or the entirety of The Wire is
probably my favorite TV of all time.
Music: If it's awesome, I like it. I can listen to pretty much
Food: Yes, please.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, my guitar, purdy girls, Lemonheads, my laptop, and bike
rides, in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Performing with my comedy troupe. On a typical Saturday night,
however, I'd probably be at a bar, a party, a movie, attending a
cultural or social gala for super fancy folks who wear monocles,
going to see some music, or hitting Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I save all my hair trimmings in jars.
Just kiddin'. I'm normal.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you are smart and funny and looking for the same.
- you wanna make my day (dudes only occasionally get unsolicited
messages sent to us, ladies, so it's nice when you see one in the
old inbox. If I seem like a cool guy, drop me a line and I'll be
all touched by the nice gesture and shit.)
- you are awestruck by any of the following: Led Zeppelin, Stanley
Kubrick, the fact that we landed on the fucking moon, George
Carlin, Ben Franklin, outdoor places with bigass bodies of water,
early Weird Al Yankovic, animals doin' stuff, puns, or Dr. J
