Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Moved to SF from NYC eight years ago for a better quality of life.
Love to explore.
Technology pays the bills but, studied fine art in college which
did not prepare me for paying rent. So, initially made a living as
a graphics prostitute: Commercial photography, advertising and
design before walking away to pursue a career as a Geek.
Prefer to talk in person. Not so much on the phone. Physical
interaction is important. Great conversationalist and listener.
Bloody fantastic at cocktail parties. Accomplished
Addicted to two wheels; bicycles and motorcycles. Spin Coach and
active road tripper.
Enjoy reading the NYT on Sundays and listen to NPR. I have Karl
Kassel's voice on my voicemail.
Respectful. Chivalrous. Acutely self aware.
We interrupt this summary with a little rant: I have been on OKC
for over two years. Been on some good dates. Been on a whole bunch
of bad ones. A few lasting relationships. A lot of OMG this is so
Obviously, I have not found what I am looking for or I wouldn't be
here. I am more than a little jaded by the process. This is SF, the
land of unconventional relationships. The question that begs asking
is what am I looking for? The perfect Partner? Existence of this is
questionable. Sex? Sure I like sex. I am pretty good at it and I
know a thing or two. Children? No Children? Not an issue.
Monogamous? Non-monogamous? Bi? Poly? Traditional? Kinky? English
as a second language?
At this stage, there is no script. no grand plan. I have walked off
the reservation. Now back to the regularly scheduled program.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in Tech. Quality control. For the last two years I worked at
a BioTech Company. Before that, a computer company. I have been in
advertising and graphic design, taught community college, sold
motorcycles, and pulled quite a few Cubanos (If you do not know,
you should ask- its a coffee thing). I have had half a dozen
careers and I probably will have a half dozen more.
I work a solid job that pays the bills, keeps me in expensive toys
and challenges me to find a work/life balance and figure out what I
am meant to do. Perhaps to write the next great american novella:
Tales of a Recovering Genius. I can see the cease and desist order
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and engaging people. Being patient and understanding.
Getting people to relax and lower their defenses. I am a kick ass
masseuse - One of my college roommates studied at the Swedish
Institute of Massage taught me almost everything I know. Picked up
a couple other interesting skills but you will have to ask.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My glasses. People mistake me for Stanley Tucci all the time.
Some people comment on my language. Words and the combinations of
them are a canvas that I never tire of painting. Friends and
colleagues think I am detail oriented and meticulous. It is really
just a mild case of OCD.
When out on a bicycle or at the gym, people tend to stare at the
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Siddartha, Neuromancer, BladeRunner, Laurence of Arabia, Princess
Bride, Finding Neverland, Ten Commandments (such great dialog!)
Doctor Who, The Blacklist, Justified (again with the dialog),
Afghan Whigs, Palms Out (rest in peace) Techno (old school Paul
Oakenfold, Armen Van).
I am into music in a big way. When you are teaching five spin
classes a week, you tend to go through a crap-ton of music. Arcade
Fire to Frank Zappa.
I am a total food snob. Love the cheap hole in the wall set your
taste buds on fire dives that may or may not be on the health
departments radar as much as the four-star can't get a reservation
without sacrificing a first born. And I cook; breakfast, lunch and
dinner. Have Wok, will travel (pretty good with a skillet as well
as open flame).
Chicago style hot dogs, NY bagel and a schmeer, Pizza you can fold,
Burma Superstar and Strawberry Pop Tarts (did you know that they
are flammable! Do NOT leave em in the toaster while showering)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Chocolate. Life is not worth living without chocolate. And coffee.
And Sticky Buns - The breakfast pastry that is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the Universe and everything. How 42 came to be the answer to
the ultimate question of aforementioned life, universe and
Food. Shelter. Sex. (not necessarily in that order)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Winding down. Hanging out with friends. Going to a show or OKC
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Spent 36 hours in Queens Central Booking (A fantastic story).
