Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an editor-in-chief, bartender and singer/songwriter living in
Brooklyn (isn't that always the story?). I graduated from NYU in
2008 with a BA in Journalism and Music and am now running a small
online magazine. I grew up in a small town in WV (Fairmont) and
wound up staying in NYC after school because I always wanted to
come eventually, anyway.
I'm a total geek and an all-around average guy. I'm not too deep or
philosophical. I don't read much or watch deep movies. I have no
"scene" and don't use the word "queer," as I don't feel strange or
different (totally cool if you identify as queer--it's just not
me). I'm not obsessed with my appearance. I'm mostly just laid-back
and fun/carefree. It's sad that in the gay world we have to specify
that we're "drama-free," but so be it. I'm drama-free and also lean
towards the masculine side. Oh, and gay bars are THE WORST.
I may not be "fit," but I'm in good shape with a slight beer belly
(comes with the bartending territory). It's not going anywhere
anytime soon, but I don't think I'm by any means unattractive
because of it.
That being said, I like beer.
Hide your kids.
Hide your wife.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I'm the Editor-in-Chief of an online magazine called
AllMediaNY.com. I also bartend and would like to do that full time.
I am also trying to write songs on the side and record in my free
time (that's not really working)...
That being said, I'm broke. Any sugar daddies out there? ... ?
I’m really good at

No particular reason. :)
I'll still love you if you're a vegetarian, as long as you don't
judge me. I like my meat (insert penis joke here)!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Also thinking about how I really need more free time...
Also thinking about ideas for songs and stories and TV shows that
seem to never happen...
Also wondering why there are so many hipsters...
Also thinking about your mom...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Currently bartending in Manhattan. If not, chances are, I'm
drinking around the Williamsburg area or with with friends in
Brooklyn or (rarely) Manhattan, sometimes finding random parties.
Never gay bars, though... usually neighborhood bars, and generally
(hopefully) ones that aren't too ridiculous or expensive.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing is really private for me, which sometimes can get me in
trouble--but I'm all about honesty and owning up to my actions. You
only live (or at least only remember living) once, so why
Also, if my beard/mustache grows too long, I chew on the hairs...
That's a sign to trim. And maybe a little gross...
Also, I'm stubborn--to the point that when I was a kid, I swore I'd
bring my teddy bear and baby blanket to college. I'm now 28 (29 by
November 19), and guess what's still on my bed? Yep.
