My self-summary
I've been in Seattle for 3 years now and I'm eager to continue exploring this lovely city.

If only traffic would let up...

I'm a former newspaper photojournalist, now working in communications for a software company, but I still love photography and I'm always down to geek out about it. Ask me about my silly portraits.

I also enjoy ultimate frisbee, kickball, basketball and karaoke, although I range from OK to terrible at those things.

I am a pretty decent cook, though. I don't have the biggest repertoire, but I'm good at the dishes I know.

I have a cat named Lt. Cmd. Scruff who's overdue for a promotion, but I just don't like the sound of Commander Scruff nearly as much. Sorry, little buddy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'd like to find somebody with enough similar interests to have fun together, but my match would also have her own life. Nothing's worse than a couple who does everything together.

I guess Ebola and genocide are worse.

Even though I'm a creative visual person, I enjoy words too. I'm a part-time grammar snob, so thumbs up if your the type of person who just cringed that I used the wrong you're.
I’m really good at
Meeting new people. I especially like meeting people from vastly different walks of life and learning about how they see the world.

Describing people as the offspring of celebrities.

Getting carded. I look young for my age, which was super annoying while growing up, but is cooler with each passing year.

Getting roofied. It's happened twice, but I wasn't the intended target either time. It's a story better told in person.

I'm also pretty snarky and quick with a quip. You probably haven't laughed once on here, but I'm funnier in person.
The first things people usually notice about me
My long hair. Since I swam and played water polo in high school, I shaved my head every year. After graduating, I just let it grow, and I guess it just GREW on me.

See? Not funny on here at all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Wire, Breaking Bad, Nathan for You, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Bob's Burgers, Better Call Saul, Burn Notice, Veep, Silicon Valley, Workaholics, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Talking Heads, Journey, 90's R&B, 80's anything, bacon, hot wings, pho, ramen, Thai food (especially laab), Hunter S. Thompson, Malcolm Gladwell, photography books...I'm super excited to live near a Heaven Sent Fried Chicken too.
Six things I could never do without
My family, cameras, lighting equipment, people to meet, places to explore and BHT (to preserve my freshness).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Silly portrait ideas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either excited to kick off the weekend with some fun, or pseudo-regretting all the weeknight activities that exhausted me.
You should message me if
You like balancing the silly and serious parts of life.

You like my long hair.

You like making up dialogue and backstories of strangers in public.

You like being creative and pragmatic.
The two of us
