My self-summary
Why are you reading this? Let's go outside. Do something! See the world. Eat things! Take pictures where random people you knew from high school will be not so secretly jealous of when you post them to Facebook.


I'm Michael.

You know its funny. You can get rejected ten thousand times dating but you can win with a single yes.

Its hard to set a tone writing so just assume I am trying to be witty with a touch of sarcasm. Does anyone really read this when you are a guy anyways? (I have been told that yes apparently a few people do read this)

I like to think of myself as someone who puts himself out there. Also reaching and trying to expand my grasp of the world. I love the outdoors, traveling, and learning about different cultures (and eating from them.)

I enjoy food. I should expand on that...I enjoy food that's well made. I hate the word but yeah I am a foodie. I have a food blog and everything

I want to meet someone who is always trying to fulfill their desire to learn. I like cultural things and I go to events at museums, art galleries etc... (please go easy on the theater with me.)

Well...yeah its hard to put yourself in a little box. You may need to meet me in person. I'm the kind of guy you don't forget.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in social media. Trying to let people know about stuff. Its harder than it sounds. No its not uploading adorable puppy photos to Facebook all day.

I like to be active and am usually going somewhere if I get the chance. I love trying new things (within reason.)

I love the outdoors and I am a avid hiker. It doesn't take much to get me outside. I know everyone says they like the outdoors on

I come from a large Irish family. I'm very close and protective of all of them.....most of them.
I’m really good at
I know where to eat. Getting to know restaurateurs and Chefs has its advantages.

Being tall. I am always good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am going to go with being tall. People always seem surprised.

Apparently I look trustworthy and nice. I have almost never been stopped to see if I am supposed to be somewhere. I have had people ask me questions when I have been surrounded by people and I am reading.

I am loud. I take up a lot of space. I am opinionated and proud of what I believe in.

I asked some friends what they thought and they said loud, (thanks guys) and intelligent.

Also I have freckles. A lot of freckles. Did I mention I am Irish?

I read a lot of non fiction. Fiction wise I do like Piers Anthony, I have read the entire Enders series (I hate Orson Scott Card) and some other assorted books. I read the LA Times and quite a few magazines regularly.

Yeah I like a lot of things. I am allerigc to a few things and there's stuff I wont eat. But like I said before food blogger. If you like food thats something we can talk about .
Six things I could never do without
My car- Its LA its expected but yeah its like air to me.

My blog- OK could I really do without this stuff? Sure but they are important things to me. My blog has given me some amazing adventures.

My family- Yes its typical but I need 6 things I guess.

My phone I would be literally lost without it...because of the GPS

Food -I am a foodie/gourmet/whatever (I don't like any of the terms) food is one of the spices of life.

Shit should I go with air or something?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future.

How the American media has basically decided not to tell us stuff and let the world think we don't give a shit.

Why some restaurants don't have salt on the table.

Just because they put langostino in front of lobster does not make it magically lobster.

How the human brain naturally filters information.
On a typical Friday night I am
I dont do the whole Friday is my only day I do things...thing.

This is what I did for one week. I like to do stuff.

Interviewed the new Chef at a resort.
Went for a tasting for a new menu at a restaurant.
Went hiking.
Media event at a store launch.
Charity event.

So sometimes I'm busy. But a good busy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That there's nothing like driving in LA at night with not a soul around.
You should message me if
Well I would hope because you want to date me.

Or you want to give me money. I would take money.... ()I have thought about messages offering me money and I take it back I think it would always end badly.)
The two of us
