I love to ask questions and I am insatiably curious about the world
around me. I am happiest when I listen,learn and keep my mind open.
I'm independent but I also know that life in the island of your own
mind is a pretty lonely place. Basically I am balanced. I am a
combination of cynicism and optimism and as I grow older I find the
optimism part becoming stronger.
Let's hang out and be friends. If more happens that's great but
otherwise making friends is quite cool.
I am a pretty normal New Yorker. Determined,optimistic,kind,
adventurous,cranky at times, apathetic at times and occasionally
stressed. And I would not have it any other way. I like my life.
What I’m doing with my life
I am the director of technology at a local biotech firm. I like
what I do because I help other people , namely cancer patients,get
their test results faster. That might sound somewhat banal but that
speed may make the difference between life and death. I also like
what I do because it makes me mindful of all the good things I have
in my life.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh and telling stories. Also I am really good at
laughing at the absurd ,a skill I have found useful in corporate
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am godlike and incredibly handsome :)
It's that I can talk and tell some good stories :) For those who
know me better I think they notice that I like to take chances and
try new things all the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading is a great passion for me. I like history,non fiction as
well as writers like Dostoevsky,Jane Austen (who is actually laugh
out loud funny), Phillip Larkin, James Joyce ,Ralph Ellison ,Herman
Melville, Henry James and Thomas Hardy.
Music: Right now the Ipod rotation features Sigur Ros, Wilco, The
Shins, The New Pornographers, The Strokes, Ben Folds Five, Daft
Punk,Paramore, Phillip Glass
Movies recent:Blue Jasmine,Francis Ha, The Look of Love (really
anything with Steve Coogan)
All time favorites: The Third Man, Dr. Strangelove, Citizen Kane,
Annie Hall,Star Trek,Airplane,Rashomon, Lolita (Kubrick's
TV: Got a tv but it is more of a DVD monitor. Recent things I have
loved on DVD. House of Cards( both the original British version and
the Kevin Spacey version), The original Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy
,Sherlock,Archer (absolutely hilarious), Portlandia, Mean Streets
and The French Connection for a taste of NYC in the early 1970's.
The six things I could never do without
1) Job and money
5) friends and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do we have people who are 'drama queens' and 'divas'? Can't we
just live our lives and be happy?
Why do we hold onto anger? If someone screws us over just move
on,stewing about it does nothing but raise your blood
Why do some guys want to bare their souls on these OKCupid
profiles? If you want to bare your soul ,find a therapist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out. Even if I am exhausted from my workweek I get out of my
apartment if only to see a movie. But being out with people or
hanging out with friends is key
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a Garfield stuffed animal that my little brother gave to me
years ago. It sits on top of my computer monitor.
You should message me if
it strikes your fancy
