My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Native Brooklynite. Fraternal twin. Surfer. Big reader of biographies and business books. Former lawyer turned Tough Mudder brand manager. Fascinated by all there is to do and explore in this ever-changing city, but also love escaping it to play in the ocean or the mountains. Looking for a great girl.

Here's me in action on LIVE with Kelly & Michael (mannerisms / voice are important, right?):

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Planning my next surf trip; trying to grow a global tribe of obstacle course runners; hanging out with my brothers; creative side-projects. (Ask me about 'em...)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Brainstorming ways to innovate and improve on things... well... on everything. It's probably my most distinguishing trait.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They never notice anything. I always sneak up like a ninja in the night. In fact, if I had a band I'd name it "Alex and the Nighttime Ninjas" and play to sold-out stadiums across the world without even ever appearing on stage (to the untrained eye).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Political biographies and non-fiction like Steven Pinker and any of those interesting pop science books. Business books as well, like recently "How Google Works."

Movies: Anything with Denzel Washington in it. He's a god.

Shows: The Wire, House of Cards, Vikings, 24. Comedy-wise, my dad could fill in for Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm, so I love that one, and Modern Family. I like girls with a little Leslie Knope in them too, so I should also list Parks and Rec.

Music: Generally I get into popular songs a few years after they were popular, send them to my older brother, and then get chastised for being behind the curve. I then remind him that for fun I attended the 2009 Intelligent Transportation Systems world congress, as a research assistant, and am very ahead of the curve on the future of vehicle automation.

Food: Thai and Indian. Plus any of my own creations, I'm pretty inventive in the kitchen.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Beyond family, friends, and a job I love, I'd say surfboards, surf wax, surf trunks, a surfboard leash, plane tickets, and a rental car to get me to the surf spots.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why so many girls have photos of them petting tigers... it's as if OKC has a tiger park where they photoshop girls next to big drugged animals. (I laughed out loud when I saw that this is apparently a male phenomenon as well, see my photo.)

The correlation between success and replacing the ice tray immediately when is empty. (Although I suppose long-term success can be defined as one day having an automatic ice dispenser.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Work drinks with friends from Tough Mudder, then out to dinner with friends or my brothers, or just turning in to have a low key night in so I can make the most of Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once ran a search for girls with "books" in their profile on OKC, hoping to find smart girls. However, one of the profile questions asks for "Favorite books..." so it just turned up everyone. Not sure I really even deserve a smart girl after that.

Also, that I've considered loading up this profile with key words, like the evil people do on Craigslist. As an example, if a girl is searching for Derek Jeter, a guy with a speedboat, a rapper, a masseuse, an award-winning author, or a guy who has a PhD, MBA, J.D., was in the CIA, does CrossFit, or even has been to "prison" (hey, to each their own), she may now come across my profile. That said, I'd prefer to be really authentic and not brag about a fake helicopter or private island.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are smart, confident, ambitious, athletic, personable but a bit introverted, got some dance moves, and want to learn to surf (I'll teach you when the weather warms up next summer)!
