Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a history geek. I love finding a good story to tell about
interesting people and places in the past. I’ve traveled around the
states for work (park ranger and historical interpreter) and around
the world for fun. I love traveling to a new place, digging into
its history, eating its food, and finding out what makes it
special. (Most interesting place so far is either Peru or Cambodia.
Most of my jobs have been outdoors, where I’m happiest. When I have
to be inside, I like an old-fashioned pub, with good friends (or
good strangers) and a fun conversation. I’ve never been accused of
keeping my opinions to myself or of being quiet. I love a healthy
debate with an interested partner. My friends consist of an
inexplicably high number of teachers, actors, seamstresses and
I like amber lagers with a strong malt component, quiet nights in
and late nights out, home cooked meals, summer peaches, and Irish
pubs. I'm supposed to let you figure this out, but I'm an overly
sentimental cynic who secretly wishes that life was as well
scripted as an Aaron Sorkin drama or a quirky indie comedy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After 8 years of moving around the country as a seasonal Park
Ranger, I've decided to settle down and add a little more stability
to my life. I've worked in parks and museums most of my life and I
recently started at farm museum, which is what started me in the
field to begin with.
I just moved here (late January) from the DC area and would like to
explore the area and what it has to offer. I'm looking forward to
exploring new hiking trails this spring.
I don't know how I ended up in livestock husbandry, but here I am.
I love my critters. It's a strange world we live in. I am a living
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Storytelling. Camping. Getting sucked into movies and tv dramas.
Trying out new recipes and cooking from scratch. Convincing people
I live on a farm just before the Revolutionary War. GGG, switching,
public play. Exploring the world, I think I'm up to 15 countries,
something like that. I like board games, Euro-games but don't get
enough chances to play.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no indoor voice.
My hair is long.
I have a beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I prefer nonfiction and historical fiction, but I have to confess
to reading some good fluff lately.
Movies: For Love of the Game, Saved!, Rudy, Good Night and Good
Luck, Igby Goes Down, The Hammer, It's Kind of a Funny Story, long
way Down, Casablanca.
Dark comedy, introspective drama, and superhero movies. Indie films
and Marvel movies, that sums it up.
TV: Aaron Sorkin's shows, Bones, Buffy, Restaurant: Impossible,
Nurse Jackie, Star Trek (TNG & DS9 mostly). I like strong
writing and witty dialogue. Laugh tracks will kill any interest I
had in a show, except Big Bang Theory - which is slowly winning my
My Netflix account will reveal that i've caught myself up on a
number of mediocre sci-fi shows. I used to watch some of the
cooking reality shows, but not anymore.
Music: I like some music, I dislike much more music than I like.
I'm both eccentric and vary narrow-visioned in my musical tastes.
I'm surprisingly fond of what DC101 was playing the last few years,
alternative rock. Every few years I get back into country, it goes
through phases as the music does.
Food: Anything but octopus, prepared pretty much any way you can
think. Really, I love trying new foods, new restaurants, new
dishes. I would explore the whole world through food given the
chance; some might say I'm well into that challenge.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Movies (okay, fine - Netflix)
A story to tell
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next food experiment, the next dish I'm going to tackle, or just
what I can whip up with what's on sale this week or already in my
fridge and pantry.
Exploring my new home and how I ended up in New Jersey. It has been
a long strange journey.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't know yet, I just moved here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will watch a romantic comedy with you and probably enjoy

I only shave my beard when I am paid to do so.
