The one thing I am passionate about...
Quality conversation. I'm all about long, rambling, genuine talk.I also enjoy most things that relate to a good meal. My friends and I spend a lot of time eating out. Even my day job is delicious--I do marketing and design work for a fancy foods shop, and I used to write restaurant reviews for a local blog.
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm a total movie-goer. There's just something about seeing a movie in a big dark room filled with other people, holding their breath. I also like checking out new restaurants and watering holes, frequenting my favorites, and trying new drinks (especially the sparkling or whiskey-based). I cook for myself when I can, and I love to bake when there's someone to share the goods with. In the summer, I love running outdoors, taking strolls, and dancing (freestyle, though). When I have the funds, I try to make travel plans--Japan is at the top of my list!
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for a best friend. Someone I can shoot the sh*t with in any situation, whether it's over a beer or during a long car ride. Someone with a solid silly streak. Someone kind, who doesn't make fun of other people's taste in music. A guy who wants to dissect the latest episode of Community. Someone who likes to cook (or is interested, at least) and check out new restaurants would be great. I like men who aren't overtly romantic and sappy, but show ample affection to the ones they love.
The first thing people notice about me
My pale, vintage glasses.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Art of Fielding, by Chad Harbach.Totally rad novel about baseball, of all things. Harbach's prose is just effortless and insightful, and the story unfolds beautifully.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- A stable and supportive family
- An adventurous palate
- My best friend
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can come off as kind of serious depending on the situation, but I'm a lot sillier than I seem. And I've got some baller impressions up my sleeve.
Friends Describe me as
