My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not a hipster. I'm an easy going, laid-back guy with an occasional New York neurotic side. I'm very close with my family and a few life-long friends, who are the causes of, and solutions to, all my life's stresses.
I prefer dinner or drinks with close friends or seeing a live band at a low key bar over a night out partying. It pains me to admit that I've stayed home rather than go to house parties far too many times in the last couple years. I don't know if it's an age thing, but I'm finding it harder to be all that socially outgoing (especially if trekking to Brooklyn in the cold is involved). I know this lifestyle is really working against me as far as the dating scene is concerned, but what can I do, it's just not me.
I grew up with the arts in my life so it's pretty important to me to be involved in artistic cultural activities like going to museums, art galleries, plays, operas, or concerts. I'm not at all pretentious about these things, I just see their value and appreciate including them in my life. That being said, I also appreciate and enjoy doing seemingly nothing; wandering around and exploring the neighborhoods of New York, or just being lazy at home with a movie or TV and some booze. I get pretty excited when planning my time around cooking (whether or not there's a dinner party involved). Whenever I can pull myself away from the city for outdoorsy adventure, I can be found hiking, fishing, or snowboarding to name a few favorites.
A few random things that make me happy include smart design, good all-you-can-eat sushi, goofy pets, asian babies, zombie movies, and witnessing classic New York moments while people watching (not necessarily in that order or in combination).
I would describe my sense of humor as dry and sarcastic with a side of self-deprecating awkwardness.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an industrial designer and run a newish company in LIC designing and making lamps for 1 percenters. It only gets strange when visiting clients' homes and seeing their total disconnect from the life we all know.
As far as personal life goes, I'm honestly at the point where going out to meet new people is getting harder and less appealing, and it doesn't help that most of my close friends are in relationships.
Also, my ego can't survive my grandma's insistent attempts at setting me up... Something tells me that I'm on here for a lot of the same reasons as everyone else.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Driving and parallel parking in NYC are skills I've attained as a city native, however, knowing my way around Brooklyn and being familiar with all the hot restaurants and bars are skills that have somehow eluded me (I do a lot of Yelping).
Other than that, I'd say I'm reliable, trustworthy, and am great with being rational and calm in stressful situations. I can also make something out of nothing (not so much like David Blane, but more like McGuyver without the mullet).
Oh, and not to brag too much but, I can fall asleep anytime, anywhere!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically: 5 foot 3 with a shaved head and a beard. Need I say more?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite book is definitely one by Kurt Vonnegut, but I can't decide which one tops the list. Also, Hemingway (like any other man), Ellis, Auster, Kerouac... books with intense emotion over intense plot. As part of my New Years resolution, I'm trying to reconnect with my roots by getting into Russian literary classics. Wish me luck.
Favorite movie: Big Lebowski! But I love David Lynch (anything weird is an instant draw), Coens, Anderson, Jarmusch, Kaufman, Woody, Hollywood classics, and pretty much anything indy, actually almost anything (I really love movies).
I'm not really into reality TV unless you count the food network. What I do watch is the fine programing of NBC Thursdays, most Showtime and HBO shows, and It's Always Sunny... (and other degenerate comedy, Workaholics is a recent discovery).
For music, I've been on a Blue Grass, Blues, and oldies kick for a while now, but listen to everything except techno, new country, metal, and not much hip hop unless it's 90's stuff, which I like mostly for the nostalgic aspect.
Also, I have to mention NPR's RadioLab and This American Life; I could listen to those stories all day (and often do on long drives).
Food is something that really depends on the situation and mood, so I'll just disclose that I'm a foodie in the sense that I love eating and cooking everything (not a food snob). I'll eat anything except green olives, artichokes, and fast food. Also, I only cook with local meats and don't make pork unless it's in bacon form.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sleeping to dream
Being near a body of water
The ability to create things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, my design projects, what to cook and what to eat next, how great it is to live in New York and how crazy and beautiful the people and places here are, the wonders of physics and math and how I wish I could understand them, and lately a lot about people's lack of subway etiquette.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working on my night cheese. And looking forward to a weekend of not waking up at 6am to go to the gym.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I probably know and care about pop culture about as much as your parents. Also, I often use the compass app to get oriented when I get out of the subway despite having lived in NYC for over 20 years.
