Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up on a farm in the rural US, once lived in Seattle and now
do again after living in London for 3 years. Many of my best
friends are here in Seattle and it has been great to be so close to
In my free time I am a pretty social person and like hitting shows
or just chilling over a beer. I can also be a bit of an introvert
and will admit that I can get kind of shy in large gatherings.
Sometimes I just need a movie night.
I am a big fan of living local. Since I have moved back I have
stayed away from buying a car. This gets difficult when it is sunny
outside. I take the bus or bike to work. I will also probably walk
to anywhere in the city so long as I have time enough to do it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a director at an IT company and oversee a fairly large team. I
really like my job and find it fulfilling, but that doesn't stop me
from trying to figure out what is next. I want to learn a new
language or maybe take some sort of cooking class.
I have not been back in Seattle for a year now and have enjoyed
that time. The jet-setter life in London was good, but it just
never felt like I was going to find someone meaningful to be with
and that is what I am looking for.
extensively and do so to experience what it is to live in other
countries and go up in their tall things. I am looking for someone
who wants to accompany me on these adventures. Next stop is back to
London which will be my first time back since the move.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good at making others laugh. I am generally funny with
a quick wit. It doesn't hurt that I have my own fair share of
quirks thrown in.
I am also really good at breaking down problems. It has served me
well in work and relationships since it makes me a good listener
and a go-to person for advice. I will admit that times this causes
me to over think simple things and in those instances I kind of
wish I could turn it off.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall at 6'4", I have red cheeks and I have a deep booming
voice. So yeah I kind of stand out in a crowd. This is good for
people remembering you. Bad for you if crime is your chosen

Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy, The Wrong Guy, Trainspotting,
Boy. I like a wide variety, but these are one I would certainly
watch anytime and anywhere.
Music has guided some of my life decisions like moving to Seattle
and London. Bloc
, Placebo, The Smiths
, The Pixies, Joy Division
, Interpol, MGMT
are some of my favorite bands.
I also enjoy going to shows be they big or small and can say I have
seem most of my favorite bands live.
I am a midwestern boy at heart which means many things I like
probably aren't that good for you. I tend to prefer simple things
done well although I did miss the Sushi from Seattle and do enjoy
the occasional dalliance with upscale eateries as well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My US passport for travel.
2. Legs for walking around the city, I walk a lot.
3. My bike
cruising to far out places.
4. My ipod or iphone for listening to all my favorite albums.
5. Skype for keeping touch with friends.
6. Laptop for maintaining my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about the weekend. Where I should
go? What I should do? Should I leave the city? Should I leave the
country? How do I catch up on sleep? Can I really survive on that
little sleep? Is it bad to see sunshine through the window and not
run toward it? Which park should I get sunburnt in?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Coordinating with my friends and trying to figure out if we are
going to stay in and watch a movie, get a drink at a bar or find a
show to go to.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
... is that I have put way too much thought into what I would even
answer on this. I am fairly open about my faults and such, but not
open to the world.
