Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm rather horrid at talking about myself. What an original first
sentence for a profile summary, eh?
So... I'm modest.
I'm also sensitive,
As kind as I'm handsome
And heir to a throne...
er... strike that last one. But I am a fan of musicals.
And culture in general. I love good food, good wine, good coffee,

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a freelance graphic designer and marketing consultant, which is

• Gadgets—I do love my tech
• Good food
• Wine, Beer, & Liquor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Seriously—I over-think everything to an insane degree. It
