Tell us a little bit about you and what you like to do in your free time.

I’m a major music fan – I’ll bore the hell out of you discussing my favorite artists. I play guitar in my spare time. I can make bird noises with my hands. I love movies, too – my favorite director is Paul Thomas Anderson, and my most prized possession is a signed copy of ‘There Will Be Blood’ (a signed copy of the most recent ‘Wilco’ record comes in close second).


What do you look for in a partner?

I’d love a partner who’s kind and caring – and/or someone who enjoys music and the arts and can hold interesting conversations — but I’m not a picky person! I’m agreeable and easy to get along with.


What are your deal breakers?

My job requires me to go to bed early on weekdays, since I work very early in the morning. If you aren’t okay dating someone with that kind of schedule, it might be a deal breaker.


Describe your dream first date.

It doesn’t really matter to me what we do, as long as it provides a forum for good conversation. Although you can’t go wrong with a good movie, conversation is key for a first date. (A second or third date might involve me asking my date to listen to some of my favorite music.)



Favorite Romantic Comedy:

My favorite romantic comedy is probably ‘Punch Drunk Love’ with Adam Sandler, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. It’s a weird little art-house movie with a twisted sense of humor, but it’s also a great love story.
