Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Everyone forgets that Icarus also flew.
Midwesterner who moved to New York, because how do you keep them on
the farm once they've seen? Continually amused by what New Yorkers
think is "cold" and "snow". Not really outdoorsy; laid back but
occasionally very intense. Up-front. Honest to a fault.
I like to read, cook, kayak, go to museums, shows,
ballets/symphonies and have interesting conversations. In
particular, when my lease is up, I like throw all my stuff into
storage and hop on a plane to another continent for a few months.
It would be nice to have someone to do that with.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

I don't really have strong feelings about music, unlike apparently
There are people in New York who will say "I guess I'm a little bit
of a foodie," as if it is something dirty and they don't want to
admit how much they like it. I am not one of those people. I am
unapologetic. In Germany, I ate a 22-course meal. I had to lie
down. But it was probably the best lying down I've done with all my
clothes still on. I have strong opinions about the merits of
michelin stars. I own Thomas Keller's cookbook. I really like food.
