Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Excellent. Here's where I explain who I am in sound bites that are
easy to read and entertaining but still fully express my
personality. No problem!
So my favorite color is lime green and my favorite ice cream flavor
is B&J's chubby hubby (NOT the annoyingly similarly named
chunky monkey). My favorite cloud type is cumulonimbus, favorite
diacritic mark is the umlaut and favorite meal is brunch. What more
do you need to know?
*Update: my favorite color is now chartreuse. Lime green can suck
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to NYC 3 years ago from New Orleans. Before that spent a
year backpacking in Central America. Grew up in Florida. Parents
are from India but to their chagrin I ended up totally
I'm a scientist. Typing that made me smile. My work is important
but not everything. I really enjoy being active- especially yoga or
capoeira and I spend as much time as I can designing and making my

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
• starting new projects
• being there for a friend

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've recently become addicted to the On Being podcast because it's
so inspiring. The John Lewis one is my favorite. The Bugle podcast
is also great.
Books - too many! Ones that come to mind at the moment are: Hero
with a Thousand Faces, The Cheese Monkeys, The Outsider, Man for
Himself, Middlesex, The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales,
Movies - Life Aquatic, Death at a Funeral, Scent of Green Papaya,
American Pimp, Big Lebowski (I once saw someone dressed as the Dude
for Mardi Gras. It was the easiest costume ever. He just wandered
around in ratty bathrobe and slippers, drinking a caucasian and
saying stuff like "the Dude abides.")
Shows - The Smurfs. Except for the one where we find out that La
Schtroumpfette started out as a fake evil smurf. How sad!
Music - Magnetic Fields, Mana, Zydepunks, Red Stick Ramblers, The
Food - I'll try anything once. I'm on a quest for the best noodles
in Chinatown. So far, Xian's famous foods is the hands-down winner.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A sense of purpose
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Can I make that myself?
How this city is nuts but I never want to leave.
Did I get enough done today?
What is it like to be a bat?
What's for dinner?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I get in trouble it's usually because I said exactly what I
think when I should've kept a lid on it.
