Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 23 year old marketing communications major at Emerson
College, working at CeX in Downtown Crossing and (finally) coming
to terms with the idea of being a self-sustaining, single adult in
Boston. I love cars, computers, and Lady Gaga, and don't think that
there's anything particularly unusual about that. I'm a happy
person because I don't think life is worth going through sad, and I
derive joy from anything and everything; I love to laugh, to share
happy moments with others, and finding people who share my level of
dysfunction while still hoping and working for the best. I also
have the biggest tongue you've (I promise) ever seen. That's not
supposed to be, I don't know, raunchy, but forewarned is forearmed,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to pin down my favorite shade of green; exploring the finer
points of haute ramen cuisine; coming up with schemes for inserting
myself into Lady Gaga's entourage as her new marketing director;
appreciating the little things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Expressing myself in formal/professional settings--I enjoy public
speaking and PowerPoint presentations, and I'm still trying to
figure out what part of my brain broke for that to happen.
Incorporating my creative side into my daily life in ways that
surprise even myself. Fixing your computer (I won't begrudge you
it, but if you give me something caffeinated I'll be more than
thrilled!). Being there for friends, or even strangers when they
have no one else to turn to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I smile a lot, and I get that I'm "too nice" a lot--it's sincere,
and I'm not REALLY Rob Lowe's character on Parks and Recreation,
but I've just picked up in life that there are plenty of people
worth meeting and getting to know out there and it's not always
obvious who they are, so being nice to everyone I meet has been
fantastic for finding those diamonds in the rough. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
If you've gotten this far, you may have noticed Lady Gaga popping
up more than a few times--God help me but I love her to death. I
enjoy a variety of genres of music, but pop has a special place in
my heart and no one does it better; beyond that, I'm in awe of her
self-made-woman status and unstoppable good spirit and sense of
humor. Love her or hate her, she became exactly who she wanted to
be, and I don't think ANYONE can shake a stick at that.
Uh, but, I promise there is more to me than that. I love the
Strokes, the Shins (and Broken Bells), Feist, Yeah Yeah Yeahs
(Karen O was the first person I was FANATICAL over, and other
pop-rock innovators. Joanna Newsom, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Neko
Case are a few artists who I've connected with more and more as
I've grown older. Oh, and I can't wait for Robyn's triumphant
comeback in the US--it's gonna happen!
My favorite movie is Lost in Translation, both for the performances
by the leads and Sofia Coppola's unwavering artistic vision. I do
love all her other films, but LIT's ahead by a long shot. Oh, and
do yourself a favor and go see Bridesmaids--if you've seen Kristen
Wiig on SNL, you already know it'll be worth it.
I like Ray Bradbury and Philip K. Dick, I couldn't get enough of
Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, but Kazuo Ishiguro's Never
Let Me Go probably affected me more than any other book in the last
Food? I like it. Almost all of it. I've made my peace with non-stop
snacking, which is the only reason I'm not a blimp, but when it's
time to go hard in the kitchen, I'm your man.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends & family
2. Nature and our best friends (animals!)
3. The internet
5. Mystery flavors
6. DEEP FRYING (EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING) (YES, EVEN YOU)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"Where is Osama Bin Laden?" (I'm a little out of touch)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to have a good time, and I enjoy the more conventional ways
of doing that--going drinking, dancing, partying, what have you.
But with the right person, I can have a good time doing pretty much
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

One of my earliest memories is asking my mom for my OWN Belle (from
Beauty & the Beast) Barbie Doll. Yes, I got it, they're not
barbarians, gosh. No, I don't still have it, I burned it and drank
the molten plastic when I became a real man.

You've seen anything remotely interesting or intriguing in my
profile. I'm not so great at expressing who I am succinctly and
precisely, so the only way you'll ever REALLY get to know who I am
is if you give me a shot! Don't worry, I only bite if you ask me
