My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Formerly of Astoria, new to Williamsburg.

I'm particularly interested in politics, comics and various pop-culture oddities. I used to be an avid gamer, but I don't spend that much time playing video games these days. More time reading about them, actually.

I'm interested in meeting anyone with whom I can have a good bowl of pho, discover new rock/pop music, watch a Cronenberg film, have a spirited political discussion, or talk about nerd stuff like comics, to give a few examples.

Or just go out and have a good time. More East Village than Chelsea or Hell's Kitchen, but I love this town.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated from Vassar College in May of '08, majoring in religion. I then immediately moved to DC. After a ten-month stint working for a liberal media organization, I did various odd jobs including blogging, interning for an LGBT PR firm, volunteering for a gay rights campaign, and census work.

In summer of '10, the aforementioned LGBT PR firm offered me a job in NYC. So I seized the opportunity and moved. I've research, press release writing, and more for a wide range of progressive causes.

Currently freelancing and searching for the next big step in my career.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmm. Writing. Having a good sense of humor. Being considerate of other people, and intrigued by what they're doing. Discussing politics, cultural trends, and the things mentioned in my "favorites" section.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Yerba mate (it feels better than coffee, with significantly less caffeine!)
-Vietnamese food, especially pho and banh mi (the latter from Banh Mi Saigon in Chinatown, especially)
-My Netflix account - the streaming service is great
-Arrested Development - endlessly quotable
-Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, by Michael Chabon
-My iPhone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-sex and relationships. Of course.
-how to be a huge nerd while maintaing my sexual mystique
-politics, with an emphasis on gay rights and other cultural issues
-unintentionally hilarious pop-culture ephemera; see everythingisterrible.com for examples
-Vaguely disturbing imagery and ideas, like Chris Cunningham videos or the Futurist Manifesto

Hanging out with friends at a bar or house party. Though I do sometimes keep it lower-key.

you think my profile seems interesting and you're up for chatting. And possibly meeting in person.

Please don't bother if you can't type in complete sentences; if Atlas Shrugged is one of your favorite books; or if you're a sexual moralist. It helps if you comment on something I'm interested in - it works in real life, too!
