My self-summary
Hi and thanks for visiting. A picture says a thousand words, so here's a video (that must be worth more) from June 2013 on the Today Show, telling it straight to Matt Lauer & Al Roker:

http://www.today.com/video/today/52044029#52044029

A bit more about me: I'm a highly creative and imaginative guy. I'm pretty athletic. I'm sociable and comfortable in a crowd, but deep down I'm an introvert. I'm an ocean lover (surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kite-surfing, anything in the ocean). I'm a Brooklyn native, went to an all-boys Jesuit high school, then went to Harvard for college, University of Virginia (UVA) for law school, did a brief stint as a corporate lawyer, and now work at a start-up company that puts on hardcore 10-12 mile military-style obstacle courses. I'm having the most fun of my life and want to find a girlfriend who is confident, adventuresome, and lives by her passions in life.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to rack up adventures near and far along the way. Enjoy (basic) cooking. Love travel, eating Thai and Indian food, and watching & debating Netflix documentaries. Trying to keep up w/friends and politics/global events. Staying fit for my next Tough Mudder event. Brainstorming creative stuff.
I’m really good at
Meeting new people. Being thoughtful to those I care about. Ocean sports. Quippy replies that make everyone at the table laugh. Imaginative musings.
The first things people usually notice about me
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 showing up. Ok, ok, they probably notice I'm a personable guy, and I'm saying hello, looking them in the eye, and giving them a firm handshake.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Biographies (recently the Jobs one), books about politics (recently about cyber wars, and another about narco traffickers), as well as science type stuff; Steven Pinker's The Blank Slate was a great book about human cognition and evolutionary biology. I also like business books and Seth Godin's marketing blog.

Movies: Spy thrillers and other movies you have to 'figure out.' For TV shows, I'd say Curb your Enthusiasm (I love Larry David, he's a bit like my dad), The Wire, 24, Game of Thrones, basically the major ones. The spy comedy Archer is pretty funny too.

Food: Thai and Indian food are my favorite. There's a great one of each in my neighborhood, so take your pick and likely we have a date. Plus, I love Mexican restaurants because when you sit down they just come up right away and give you chips and salsa. On my end here, I make a good burrito and guacamole for the stay-in nights, and am fearlessly (foolishly) adventuresome in the kitchen. When you ask my what spice I used, the answer is likely "all of them."

Web-wise, I'm a fan of the NY Times, Surfline.com, and StumbleUpon, because it's like Forrest Gump said about life/chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get (/learn).
The six things I could never do without
(In addition to family & friends...) Water, shelter, hunting gear, first-aid supplies, Google Maps, and a surfboard. That would make for the ultimate Robinson Crusoe surf trip!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My goals in life & how I'm going to get there. What's going on in the world / in the news. Why so many girls have photos of them petting tigers... it's as if OKC has a tiger park in New Jersey where they photoshop girls next to big docile cats to demonstrate courage and worldly travel to the Asian subcontinent.

Also, I think about why OKC doesn't have a mandatory 1-minute video clip... maybe that would be too intrusive? But someone's way of talking and moving is so important to knowing if there is the possibility of chemistry, no? (That's why included the video link above in the first paragraph.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Work drinks and then either out in Manhattan with my two brothers having dinner, or taking it easy at my apartment reading, making music, or watching a Netflix documentary. I'm an extroverted introvert and sometimes need time to decompress (but don't we all?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I eat cereal out of tupperware with a giant salad spoon. (A guy needs to start the morning right, no?) Also, I once did a search on this site for "books" hoping to find smart girls with profile text along the lines of "I like reading books." But since there's a question that asks for "Favorite books..." it just gave me a bunch of random profiles. That made me feel like an idiot, and question why I thought I'd have a shot at a smart girl in the first place!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–42
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're smart, savvy, pretty, flirty, like to have fun and go on adventures, don't take yourself too seriously, throw your head back when you laugh, work out often, are thoughtful, have an important passion in your life (whatever it is), and can dance. If you love the beach, are a surfer, or are interested in learning to surf that would be icing on the cake!
