I'm originally from NY but have now lived in the Bay Area much
longer than I did there. So I'd say I have an east coast mentality
with a west coast lifestyle. I enjoy the quick wit that comes with
the east coast mentality but love the west coast pace and
I love old movies (black and white is the best!) and reading. I
enjoy cycling and photography. I haven't traveled a lot but want to
do more in the future. I don't eat meat, but it's cool if you do,
as long as you don't center every meal around it.
I am humorous, original, unconventional, and open-minded.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a technical writer, out of my home office, which is great
because I'm not into commuting. Once in a while my supervisor flies
me up to HQ in Montreal, which I enjoy because it's a great town,
with lots of groovy vegie restaurants. I love walking around cities
like San Francisco and Montreal because of the great scenery and
people-watching. I live in Berkeley, which has the nice cool
summers of SF without the fog.
I’m really good at
Technical writing, which is good because that's what I do for a
living. I'm also a great appreciator of humor, and sometimes I'm
even funny myself!
The first things people usually notice about me
My piercing blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love good writing, period. I especially like "reading"
audiobooks; currently listening to "Capital" by Piketty; not my
usual thing but this is important stuff. I read dead-trees books
too; recently picked up "In the Light of What We Know," which I'm
looking forward to reading.
I enjoy all kinds of movies except boring ones, but old
black-and-white ones are my favorite. I like most kinds of music,
particularly soundtracks and college rock-type music, but music
doesn't play as large a role in my life as it used to. Foods:
anything vegetarian, the less animal-based the better.
The six things I could never do without
Vegetarian restaurants, my friends, books, audiobooks, my bicycle,
the Bay Area.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How lucky I've been in life, overall, and how I can give some of it
back to the community. I'm a caring guy and do volunteer work that
helps people in a psychological way. I care deeply for the people
in my life and never take anyone for granted.
On a typical Friday night I am
seeing a movie at Pacific Film Archive, my favorite Berkeley haunt.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm somewhat introverted and am usually fine on my own, although I
do have reasonably good social skills. I do get lonely sometimes
and would love to have someone to share my life with.
You should message me if
you would like me to cook a great vegetarian meal for us!
