My self-summary
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? Continually amused by what New Yorkers think is "cold" and "snow". I'm honest and considerate, but not very empathetic. If do something it's much more likely to be because I think that I should, as opposed to it feeling right. You can judge for yourself which motivation is the more reliable.

I like cooking, kayaking, intellectual conversations, museums, math-ey things (that's a technical term), and travelling. In particular, every other year or so I like to throw all my stuff in storage and spend a few months on another continent. It would be nice to have someone to do that with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a private investor (my own money) with a writing hobby and a hope that someday the two will switch.

I used to have a startup. Startups are hard.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Planning, writing, being informed, exploiting frequent flyer programs, and knowing how to tell and solicit the truth -- even when it's unpleasant -- without making people feel bad. I wish more people were good at that. But I'm not sure that most people even know it can be done.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Food: I really, really, REALLY like good food. As in, "I have strong opinions about the merits of various michelin star ratings" and also "I own Thomas Keller's cookbook". Once, in Germany, I ate a 22-course meal. I had to lie down afterwards. But it was the best lying down I've ever done with all my clothes still on.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Spreadsheets (Obviously, I'm incredibly interesting)
A nice bed. You spend a third of your life in bed; more, if you're doing it right
A sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people do dumb things. Ignorance, I think -- and pride. Mostly pride.

How we live in the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The same thing we do every night, Pinky.

You're really smart.

You subscribe to The Economist.

I guess those are sort of similar criteria.
