What I’m doing with my life
I work in sales.

(It's not that simple though - ask me WHAT I sell)
I’m really good at
This is quite the shameless plug, eh?

Let's see. You'll probably want me on your team at trivia, or if you're playing in any sort of "name that tune" duel. If you need someone to cook a mean stir-fry, I'd also be the person to contact. I take my pride in my ability to drive a stick shift, and I have changed my own oil. I also speak Spanish fluently. I also have been "doing Crossfit" for 5 years but I'm not a douche about it, at least I don't think. But I love it.

Perhaps the best summary is what a fellow classmate said to me in my 8th grade yearbook: "You know a lot of useless information." I'd think that still holds true.

Someone once said I could "work a room," and another said that I was "dinner party safe." So take that as you will.

I promise I'm humble.
The first things people usually notice about me
One of two things:

1) My height (which is odd, because I'm not THAT tall)
2) My hair (apparently it's a thing)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I love Dostoyevsky, even if that's not how you correctly spell his name. I love reading the WSJ and the Economist when I can, and I also love cars - so car blogs and Car and Driver/Road and Track aren't far from my eyes, either.

For living in Los Angeles, I watch very few movies. If it weren't for Netflix, I think I would watch less than 5 movies a year, truthfully. Don't judge! Also, if you know who Nomi Malone is, you can guess what one of my favorite movies ever is. Recently though - I've gotten into "Girls" (the TV show, not the gender) on HBO. Apparently I'm supposed to watch "House of Thrones" or "Game of Cards is the New Black?" Meh.

With regards to music - pretty much anything goes, but I'm really into 90s R&B at this very moment...which means forever. Oh, I almost forgot - if you have tickets to the Hollywood Bowl, I don't care who is playing - it's a date. Also, in general, Silver Lake > West Hollywood...I have chest hair.

With regards to food - I have a few notable NOs. These include cheese (I know, you can stop now if this upsets you), mushrooms (gross), and that's about it. Mexican food, falafel, or Thai food are the surest ways to get me to grab dinner with you. I also have an unhealthy (psychologically) desire to eat Chipotle at frequent intervals.
The six things I could never do without
I feel like "family/fun/friends/love/life/air" are the "world peace" answer equivalents, so let's get into more tangible items:

1) My car. (This is LA, and I happen to love my car)
2) Sperry Top Siders
3) Perrier (regular, sil vous plait) or soda water, for cost-conscious moments
4) Mexican Food
5) The Wall Street Journal
6) Physical Activity
7) My iPhone charger
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Upward mobility. That's basically a short hand of way of saying "getting what I want out of life." A house, kids, etc. - I want all of that. That said - I'm more than blessed with regards to my job, and most of all, my family and friends. They are everything to me.

I am a big philosophy person, thought it's more private than anything. I spend an awful lot of time thinking about the big "why" that surrounds everything we do, and how everything is (or isn't, perhaps) related. You can call me spiritual as well, though with a healthy dose of ecumenism and not an ounce of proselytizing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying my ability to do nothing on a Friday night and be absolutely okay with that. #thisis30
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think publicly admitting above that I hate cheese is enough of a bomb to drop before a first date, right? We'll stick with that.
You should message me if
You look like Alexander Skarsgard.
You ARE Alexander Skarsgard.
You speak/write English with attention to grammar and spelling.
You know how to drive a stick shift.
Your profile isn't a nonstop reel of selfies.
You have nice teeth.
You want a family with 2.1 children
You aren't politically correct.
Your message will consist of more than one line.

Any or all of the above - or some nifty reason that I have left out. :)

Also, nothing kills my vibe more than profile full of selfies. Just saying.
