I grew up in LA, moved to San Diego for school. A few years after school I moved to the east coast for a job and then lived in Alaska for a few years. Now I call Seattle home
Some things I believe:
Bacon makes everything better
The fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach
Monkeys make everything funnier
Steve Guttenberg is the best actor of his generation
Watching Bob Ross is my happy place
Calvin and Hobbes is the best comic strip. Period.
Everybody needs a Thunder Buddy.
The only way to sail in the caribbean is on a tall ship using stars to navigate
Women who smile with their eyes light up rooms
A woman who smells great is intoxicating
Naps are totally underrated
My cellphone should stay in my pocket during meals
All the selfies I've ever taken are in my photos for this profile. I'm not a fan of being in front of the camera.
My celebrity free pass list: Norah Jones, Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Tiffani Amber Thiessen.
I'm secretly a canadian. Well actually I'm a dual citizen. But it probably explains my politeness and need to say "eh" every now and then.
Sometimes I tend to make outlandish claims, like I invented the apostrophe.
I once had the opportunity to have Kareem Abdul Jabar autograph anything I wanted. I got him to sign my copy of "Airplane!" because that is how I roll. He laughed while doing it and now it is one of my most prized possessions.
Occasionally I am also sent out after disasters like hurricanes, tsunamis, oil spills and tragedies at sea so I tend to travel quite a bit.
According to Jack Donaghy, "Oceanography's a pretty cool life." I have to agree.
It also means when I am home I prefer to not spend all my time outdoors. I get an amazing amount of nature from my job and I enjoy my downtime with my dog and friends when I'm home. So if you're looking for someone who will hike Rainier every weekend with you, I'm not your huckleberry.
Also, it means I haven't really dated in years so you'll need to be patient with me as I try to get less awkward. I'm a quick learner though and very earnest so hopefully your patience is worthwhile.
And because I get asked this a lot, my favorite ocean is Billy Ocean.
Movie: Jaws, Airplane!
Show: Veep, Archer
Music: Just about anything depending on what mood I am in or want to be in

Sunshine in the summer
Snow in the winter
Women in great smelling perfume
(yes I know that is seven, but they are all important)
Ok that was kind of overly deep and honestly I don't spend too much time thinking about it. But it does come up every now and then. Plus it is not often you can combine Kent Brockman and Dylan Thomas in a single thought.
