What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Settling down, laying roots. I finished a PhD in one of those what-are-you-going-to-do-with that disciplines, moved from LA to DC, worked on a rewarding government project for a year, and now work in the private sector doing economic research. Phew! Now that I've revamped the serious side of my life, it's time to focus on the important things.

Feeling gratitude, giving back. I run a group I created to help PhDs looking for non-academic jobs, and I volunteer with a scholarship that funds and mentors college students. I love seeing people gain a sense of competence and initiative.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Doing what I say I’m going to do, making friends with dogs (they know a sucker when they see one), appreciating life’s absurdities, hitting the snooze bar too many times on Monday morning.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm intellectual and introverted, although I work hard on overcoming the latter. Later on my dry sense of humor comes out. People who come to like me tend to say that I'm a mystery that delightfully reveals itself over time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My reading list is almost all nonfiction, though my favorite book is Catch-22. I have a fascination with financial scandals and crises, which, for reasons I don't understand, some people find strange. Doesn't everyone want to know about the Mexican Peso Crisis of 1994?

Favorite movies include Sunset Boulevard, Office Space, and Don Juan DeMarco. Film noir and black comedies are usually a good bet for me.

On TV, I love, love The Wire (the best show of all time). I used to watch Law and Order, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report regularly. I don't have any current go-to shows, and I prefer it that way.

In music, I focus on jazz, with John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and Sun Ra being particular favorites.

I'm fond of Lebanese food and cheesecake.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually taking it easy, relaxing at home. Most of my weekend happens on Saturday and Sunday and usually involves long brunches with friends. Malcolm X Park on Sunday afternoons in good weather is a given.

Weekdays are busier. I like trying new things and keeping healthy, so I'm usually taking a class or finding some new activity. Right now I'm learning Lindy Hop, running intervals on the track, and attending jazz sets with friends. I usually have some random self-improvement project going. I'm a personal growth junkie.
