My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New to Seattle after growing up in Oklahoma, school in Michigan, and five years in NYC. I was born in Oregon, so it's a bit of a homecoming for me. But I haven't spent much time here, so I'm looking forward to exploring the city and meeting new people! Particularly excited to live in Ballard, which seems like a good place to start.

Personality-wise: Driven, but low-key. Genuine. Mature. A bit nerdy. Reliable. Honest. Feminist. Sense of humor ranging from deadpan wit to silly goofiness, depending on the day. Someone recently described me as a "gentle soul," which I thought was nice. I'm very affectionate and open with my feelings and tend to like people who are similar in both respects. I think those close to me would say I'm a good listener, a loyal friend and a generally affable guy--at least I hope they'd say that!

Some things I like:
--Quality film, television, and books, and discussing all of the above over a good beer.
--Going on adventures around the city: food tours, rooftop parties, karaoke, etc. I recently went to the Pinball Museum, which was awesome, and I'm looking forward to more exploration!
--Games and puzzles of all sorts. I especially like modern board games (think something like Catan or Agricola--not Monopoly) and twisty puzzles (as pictured.)
--Spending time outdoors. I'm always up for a nice camping trip or a day hike, and this is one of the biggest reasons I'm excited to be returning to the Pacific Northwest.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I used to practice at a big law firm in New York, but left to pursue a career in higher ed administration, which I'm much more passionate about. (Administration and passion are not two words that you usually hear together, but I do love my job.)

I'd also like to get better at cooking. We'll see how that goes--I've got a fire extinguisher handy.

Feeling very lucky to be in a great place in life right now, and looking forward to this new adventure in the PNW.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making guacamole. Road-tripping. The Kevin Bacon game. Being punctual. Red carpet fashion commentary, both substantive and snarky. Finding interesting things on the Internet. Bar games and pub trivia. Marathons (Netflix.)

Things I'm bad at, because that's kind of more fun: Understanding how music works. Figuring out who you are in all those group photos. Being a discerning wine drinker. Patience. Drinking water. Getting the duvet cover on my comforter. Going to bed at a reasonable hour. Marathons (running.)

Smile? Blue eyes, maybe?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books I've enjoyed in the last year: Americanah, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (both of those were wow so good), Just Mercy, Disgrace, The Good Soldiers, Middlesex, King Leopold's Ghost, The Emperor of all Maladies. I try to alternate between fiction and non-fiction.

Movies: So many! Vertigo, Annie Hall, Groundhog Day, Before Sunset, Mulholland Drive, Dr. Strangelove, Once, Back to the Future, Singin' In The Rain, The Lives of Others, Her, and lots more.

Television: Also so many! The Sopranos, Lost, Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad, Louie, Veep, Game of Thrones, etc. I also used to love The Mole. Anybody remember that? With Anderson Cooper? And as far as reality tv goes, I'm sort of newly obsessed with So You Think You Can Dance.

Music: Classic rock, mostly. And I see Glen Hansard any time I can. Love that guy.

Food: I'll eat anything at least once and love anything that's delicious. Last year I drove up the Pacific Coast Highway eating nothing but tacos, which was about as awesome as it sounds.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
--My cat, Minnie. We've been together since seventh grade and she's the best.
--iPhone: it's like the 21st century swiss army knife.
--Diet Coke. It's delicious, but I'm not proud that I'm listing it here.
--The changing of the seasons. Is that silly? I always feel so happy at the beginning of each season. Especially autumn.
--Netflix. Life changing.
--My friends. Cliche, but true. Lucky to have some amazing people in my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Am I doing the right thing?

Also: How does okcupid determine "personality traits," and why are mine so weird? What movie/show/book should I watch/read next? Do people REALLY work out/travel/trapeeze that much, or is this just an okcupid thing? How to navigate this "Seattle Freeze" I keep hearing about and start to build a network of friends in the city.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
You know, doing the usual things people do on Friday nights. Probably out exploring a new bar or restaurant with friends, or relaxing at home with a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
OkCupid made me a moderator. Not sure how that happened, but I love that they have some algorithm that told them I'd be just the kind of dork who would enjoy such a thing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
it seems like we might have similar values, are ultimately looking for a long-term relationship, and you'd like to grab a drink sometime!

Or if you can teach me how to ski. I've never been! Seems like this is a thing I should get into as a Seattleite.
