Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born & raised in Rhode Island, I have lived (grown up really)
in Washington, DC since coming here for college (I recently
returned from a brief stint in NC).
I'm pretty normal, the opposite of a hipster really. My friends
would disagree but I'm usually a little quiet at first until I get
comfortable as I try to get a feel for my surroundings. But once
I'm comfortable, I am fine and can be the life of the party if the
situation calls for it. I'm a pretty colorful individual once you
peel back the layers. My friends value my honesty and ability to
cut the crap and tell it like it is.
I have a wide array of interests and am always open to new ideas
and experiences. I'm looking to find someone who I enjoy spending
time with and will want to share some memorable experiences with
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm pretty focused on my career right now, but outside work, I like
to have fun and seek it out as much as possible. I really enjoy
traveling to experience the world and its culture.
I'm currently working my way around the world, attending
international soccer matches, trying to observe & connect with
the passion of the supporter groups. I find the sport both
fascinating & exhilarating. I've been playing it all my
I like learning about people to find out what they are passionate
about and to learn more about their interests, especially the
things I know nothing about. And the more I can laugh and enjoy
myself while I'm doing it, the better.
I read a lot about all different things but spend much of my time
following my two passions, sports & music. If I have my way,
those two things will be big parts of my life & career until I
die. So far, so good on that front.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've always been pretty good musically. So there's that. And I've
also been known to cut a rug if the right groove is on.

Despite many failed attempts to suppress my New England accent,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Brown, and currently on a binge of
soccer themed books lately.
Music: All types but I love r&b/soul: John Legend, Gavin
DeGraw, Raphael Saadiq, Ray LaMontagne, Miguel, Frank Ocean,
Corrine Bailey Rae, Keane, etc. I love live music, especially
acoustic or stripped down shows that accentuate the lead singer.
Take me to a music festival and I am in heaven. SXSW is my personal
Movies: Love comedies like Wedding Crashers, Old School, etc. but
also like action flicks, dramatic films & documentaries. Not
really into scary movies.
TV: I used to watch In Living Color religiously. Still love them in
syndicate. Modern Family, Big Bang, HIMYM, Parks & Rec,
Food: There isn't much I dislike. I really dig Mexican, Italian,
and Thai to name a few. The spicier the better, these taste buds
don't respond as quickly as they used to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music (I could talk for days about this subject.)
Sports (Soccer, Basketball, Football, and these days I struggle
just to keep up with everything else)
Something to read
An instrument to connect to the interwebs
My friends & family
Humor & witty banter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I want to accomplish next. I have big dreams and even bigger
ambition to achieve them. Still navigating my way to reach some of
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends or at home recharging from the work week. Depends
what's going on. When I'm not the ringleader, I can be easily
swayed to do something random & fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I go to Vegas, I always see a show. When I'm in Manhattan, I
can't escape without a trip to Broadway. I was clearly a stage
performer in a past life.
