Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a music school dropout who somehow ended up down in San
Francisco with a tech job during the the 90s. I think I decided I
didn't want to end up teaching guitar to kids in a back room of the
local music store. Nothing against music teachers of course; I
remember idolizing mine.
I'm working on shedding my nice guy image, so every Tuesday I go
out and beat up some puppies.
I seem to have coincidentally lived in places throughout my adult
life where interesting or notable events have happened. College in
Seattle during grunge; San Francisco at the height of the tech
boom; New Orleans until Katrina. I probably could have done without
the hurricane. Still waiting to see what will happen in Atlanta.
I've enjoyed the South for the 10+ years I've been down here.
Although every time I go back west to visit family I sure do miss
the mountains; the Appalachians have their own beauty, but there is
something special about hiking or camping in the Cascades or
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've gotten REALLY excited about skiing again. Until trips to
Portland and Denver last winter it had been about 10 years since
I'd gone. I've never skied out east though; only west. I'm worried
that I've been spoiled.
Figuring out what concert to see next, or actually going to a show.
I see a fair amount of live music - would love to find someone who
does or would like to.
Also, making plans on which internationally-located friend to visit
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can make you a mean cocktail.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Why is that guy mad at me."
Seriously..I chew gum constantly to keep my face from being too
frowny. It's just how my mouth is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Here's what I've been listening too lately: Hiatus Kayote, Janelle
Monae, Azelia Banks (for some reason she's great to run to),
Braids, Blue Hawaii, Little Dragon, Phosphorescent, Unknown Mortal
Orchestra, Buke and Gass.
I'm always reading something; although must admit I'm not the
fastest reader. I also have a terrible memory for books I've read
and movies I've seen - not sure why. Currently reading Shantaram,
which a friend lent me after a recent work trip to India. Next on
the list is probably End Of Faith. I'm a big Don DeLillo fan.
Don't watch a ton of movies, and don't really go to theaters that
much. TV shows, though, I try keep up with the usual good ones -
BB, Mad Men, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, etc. etc. Also watch
Stewart and Colbert pretty religiously.
My sister is a big foodie, and she's rubbed off on me some. I enjoy
cooking, although that's hard for one sometimes. Love pretty much
all good food; Viet and Thai are probably my favorite cuisines.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at home or out with friends. Also, not necessarily Friday
nights, but I see a fair amount of live music (probably averaging
once or twice a month).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Besides the obvious, I'm definitely atheist-y and fairly liberal.
So there's that. Also, if you're up for going skiing this winter in
icy Carolina, that's a big plus.
