Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to San Francisco over 5 years ago. It was at first a bumpy
ride — and let's be honest, there is a lot about SF that takes
getting used to — but I'm learning to appreciate the city's unique
character and eccentricity.
Left New York City and still miss it a lot.
In my native habitat, I am a quiet introspective individual. My
favorite thing to do is slap on some headphones and go for an epic
meandering walk through the amazing hills and what-nots of San
Francisco. That doesn't mean I don't like to hang with friends or
go out to a club, it just means that every once in a while I value
some alone time to clear my head and think straight.
I'm happiest seeing new places and things so this has been one of
the best aspects of living in San Francisco: exploring trails and
hidden gems that make this a pretty awesome city.
I am an optimist through and through—so long as you understand that
a true optimist is completely aware of all that's wrong around him
and still manages to believe that something good will come of
And I'm a pretty nice guy. And not to state the obvious, but I am
looking for somebody who cherishes all of my best qualities and
even finds some of my more idiosyncratic behavior as charming.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on my own book blog (maybe someday I'll finish it).
Been through my stupid phase of life so I'm pretty quiet and a bit
reserved even. I open up to people as I get to know them and value
a few good friends over lots of casual acquaintances.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I like entertainment to be... entertaining, probably even a little
silly and escapist, life is serious enough... Crazy, huh.
I'm currently reading "The Expanse" by James S.A. Corey, a Science
Fiction 4 books series. Easily one of the best sci-if series I've
ever read. Really worth the investment. Very engaging and
appropriately gory when it needs to be.
Loved "Last Call" a book on the rise of prohibition in the United
States — it's very good, if you've ever considered reading
I just finished reading Maynard Solomon's "Beethoven" — an
excellent biography of someone who I have always considered a
fascinating historical figure.
The best book I've read in a long time, and I'd love to read
something as enjoyable, is Cleopatra, by Stacy Schiff. Read it
twice, before moving on. Gave it to 5 different people as Christmas
Favorite book ever? Yeah I got one of those: William Gaddis, "The
Recent favorite movies: Fantastic Mr. Fox, Inglorious Basterds, I
thought Aaron Sorkin's screenplay for The Social Network was
brilliant. Not many tv shows I have to watch except of course, The
Favorite movie of all time: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
It is the perfect blend of comedy, horror and adrenaline. And a
grand example of mystical realism. Close runner up: Revenge of the
Not to sound too cliche but I LOVE Game of Thrones. I watched the
entire season 1 over and over. Read the first book in the series.
Unfortunately, season 2 sucked. So that's a bummer. But season 3
& 4 made a strong come back, so its back in the game for
I do not enjoy reality TV shows. They bring out the worst in
people. Watching the petty tantrums of people I would never
associate with in real life is not entertaining to me.
Food? Yes, I like it. Pretty much all of it. Spicy, exotic,
comfort, you name it. The only edible I don't like: eggplant (cause
its gross). Pretty much anything else that's prepared with thought
and attention to detail, I can find pleasure in eating. I don't
need the person I'm dating to like the same things that I do, in
fact I enjoy it when they don't... but I do need someone who will
sit through something I'm enjoying, even if they don't necessarily
like it... without being an ass.
Music. I'll tell you what, I'll let you just peek at my iPod later
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Self -respect.
4. A Great Book (I'm tired of good books!)
5. Something new to pique my interest on a regular basis.
(I guess there are only 5. But I might think of others)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A warm place with a pristine beach, to call my own.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not ashamed to like things that seem obvious or even a little
trite, as long as they actually do rattle me to the core.
