Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is a bit like some Film Noir movie where someone wakes up
rubbing their head looking around a strange room trying to figure
out where they are and how they got there. Then through a series of
blurry flash backs the pieces start to come together and just when
they’re starting to figure it out a stranger walks into the room.
Well that’s where the story seems to be right now. I’m waiting for
that stranger (you?) to walk into the room to help put the pieces
together, or possibly I’m the stranger that walks into your
My life’s not really that blurry. I’m a positive caring friend with
a good sense of humor.... really things aren't that blurry. I’m a
designer, teacher, and appreciate creativity.... things are slowly
clearing up. I’m active, like to run and stay healthy.... ow, that
bump on the head. I enjoy laughter, performing improv, and like
people who also laugh.... the lights are getting brighter. I was
raised in Chicago, but have lived in San Francisco a long time....
oh that’s where I’m at. Now all I need is the right person to walk
into the room for the story to continue. Well I’m sure you have
your own story too, and like me, you’re looking to move onto the
next scene. If your communicative, have a sense of humor,
appreciate creativity, happy with what you’ve accomplished in your
life and plan on doing more, it would be great if you walked into
my room.... I think the blurry part has stopped.
Metaphorical hits on the head are OK.
I guess it boils down to the fact that you know some things I don't
know and I know a few things you don't know and there are probably
a few things we both know. Who knows if things work out we can
learn some new things together.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Creative pursuits involving my work as a designer, teaching and
improv. Appreciating meaningful conversations and laughter with my
friends. Running and living a balanced life. Knowing when and when
not to be funny or serious.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people feel at ease. Cracking eggs with one hand.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I always feel pinned down with this sort of question because I’m
sure that I’ll forget something. Certain books always stay with me
from Saul Bellow, Somerset Maugham, Camus, Harper Lee, Ralph
Ellison, Nabokov. Then Nick Hornby, Paul Auster and David Sedaris
are also favorites. Steve Martin and Tina Fey’s books are great
windows into creative and funny minds. I always read the paper. I
worked my way through school as a newspaper printer so the ink runs
through my veins.
Too many movies to list but I can see Groundhog Day over and over
again. Television is so great right now with Breaking Bad, Mad Men
and Shameless and many more.
I have eclectic music taste but a soft spot for punk and post punk
Iggy Pop, Lou Reed. Also like Arcade Fire, Radiohead, White
Stripes, The Shins, Wilco. Various Jazz and Classical fit in well
too. NPR but it's not easy to dance to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When chilling replaced hanging for relaxing. I don't think my
parents ever chilled a day their lives but I know they've relaxed
plenty of times. What's the age cut off for saying chilling anyway?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A cookie package I designed is on an episode of Seinfeld but I
forgot which one so whenever I see a rerun of the show I end up
watching it to the point where they show Jerry's kitchen. If my
package isn't on top of his refrigerator I turn the show off – my
vicarious and somewhat pathetic15 minutes of fame.
