My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I adore spending time near trees and open air, which for me, mostly means hanging out in a park or taking a walk somewhere pretty. Used bookstores are enticing and should be approached with caution. I love getting lost in unfamiliar cities. This has led to surprisingly few muggings! I spend a lot of time in coffee shops, hanging out with friends, reading, and writing. I love old movies. I drew and painted and sculpted a lot as a kid (ages 4-14), and I've recently been trying to get back into it. Playing with colors, shapes, light, shadow, and patterns has always made me happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a full-time graduate student and part-time wordsmith in various capacities. I recently had a short live-Tweeting gig, which was really fun. I've also written grant proposals, indexed books, and copy-edited.

I like to keep up with friends and family in the local NYC area and elsewhere. I love traveling and always have a valid passport close at hand.

I'm on the board of my very small synagogue, which is both aggravating and illuminating. I'm studying non-profit management and serving as a trustee on a board is very good for my hands-on education. (I worked in the non-profit sector before going for an MPA and MA, but this is my first experience as a "lay leader.") Being a contributing member of a close-knit, friendly community is important to me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
wasting time online
building things with Lego (from my imagination, none of that copying stuff for me)
touch-typing

Books: Hyperbole and a Half and whatever other graphic novel I've read most recently; Quiet (by Susan Cain). I'll fill this in more as I remember other books that I've read and enjoyed. Since the internet became so ubiquitous, I've read more newspapers and magazines (both short-form and long-form pieces) and fewer books. This is both good and bad.

Movies: anything with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in It; Some Like It Hot; Monuments Men; Stranger Than Fiction. I recently saw Caddyshack for the first time and laughed a lot, which was great. I also recently saw Short Term 12, which was amazing and difficult. I'll watch anything with Tina Fey and/or Amy Poehler in it. Overall, I like drama and romantic comedy; not a huge fan of suspense or action-adventure.

Shows, Music, and Food...stay tuned!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you appreciate the world around you, treat yourself and others with respect and kindness, and are passionate about people, ideas, values, or pretty much anything that catches your fancy.

Honesty, integrity, and openness to yourself and others are key. You are committed to Judaism (however you choose to define that) and believe in the power of community (however you choose to define that) to make the world a better place.

Notes:
(1) I don't write back to men who start off by writing one-word messages to me like "Hi." You have to put at least a little bit more effort into your initial contact with me to get a response!
(2) Although I respect people of all faiths and of no faith, I would not be compatible with someone who subscribed to a faith other than Judaism and was serious about it. (So, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Wiccan, etc.)
