Loud, introverted, geeky and super laid back. I recently had a mass exodus of friends move out of town for various new jobs, babies, etc, so consider me extra open to exploring and meeting new people.
I grew up all over, but was born in Atlanta, Georgia. I had a pretty stellar southern accent for a good portion of my childhood that still surfaces when I'm extra, extra stressed. In middle school, my family moved to the Seattle area and fell in love with the clouds, tech and hipsters (but not the coffee). I talk all the time about spending a couple years in NY or SF, but ultimately can't see myself settling anywhere but here.
I'm at a point in my life right now where things are pretty settled. I have a job that I enjoy most days and a great group of friends. Really looking to find that special someone, cliche and all.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in public relations at a local Seattle agency. It's super
fun, occasionally rewarding and an excellent use of that journalism
degree nobody thought I'd need.
I’m really good at
Sarcasm. I kid...or do I?
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh. When friends mock/imitate, more often than not it seems
to come out sounding like Santa Claus.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a top 40 and Glee kind of guy. A little shallow in my musical taste, but I own it.
I'm also a prolific news junkie (MSNBC, NYTimes, CNN, etc.) and enjoy knowing what's going on in the world.
I hate horror movies. I will sit through one when forced (occasionally happens), but it's always a pretty painful exercise. Other than that, I like a movie with a brain, or at least some self-awareness.
The six things I could never do without
On a typical Friday night I am
I have a pretty social job, so my down time tends to be much more
mellow. Good company and good conversation is key, and generally
find that's much more convenient on a friend's couch than out at a
crowded bar. I'll brave a bar for the right occasion (or if I just
really, really need to get sh*tfaced), but it's a rarity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not exactly private...but I'm a pretty big gamer. Not just for my job, but in my down time too. My nerdy, and thus far unrealized fantasy is to date a geeky (but socially adept) gamer.
You should message me if
You thought, "Hey, he sounds cool."
Disclaimer: I'm terrible at internet-talking. Occasionally, I'll go
back and read something I've written and it's always pretty
horrifying. A plus if you want to skip a few steps and just get
down to scheduling coffee/dinner. Let's say... five emails or less?
