My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Recent east coast transplant finding my place in LA. I've lived in NY, CT, London, Boston and a smattering of other places, but LA proves itself unique.

I drink coffee semi-professionally. I think moderation (in all its forms) is for wimps. I believe in striving to make a positive impact on the world around me.

Oh, and I sing in the shower... badly... everyday.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Publishing or perishing, and occasionally failing to inspire college-aged minds. In other words, working as a university professor.

Lately I've been thinking about using data science and analytics to shift the way we make decisions in education and energy.

Despite (because of?) all the work I'm a big believer in making time for play. I'm currently:
- Searching out the best street art in Echo Park
- Boondoggling travel to exotic places via research conferences
- Aching for some great, live jazz

I generally prize a city's hidden gems and unsung haunts. Share your favorites with me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking the higher comedy of two life choices
Finding joy in small things
Getting people to open-up
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have never been accused of being shy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Bastard out of Carolina, The Dark Tower, Catch-22, Galapagos, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Emergency Sex and other Desperate Measures

Just finished Red Earth and Pouring Rain. Currently working through Geography of Thought and Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet

Movies: Ex Machina, Six String Samurai, The Prestige, American History X, Afro-Samurai, Old Boy, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I also have a soft spot for bigger than life movies where things go "boom." (Pacific Rim was a cinematic tour-de-force... Don't judge me.)

Music: Cannonball Adderly, Coltrane, Dispatch, Chromeo, Girl Talk, Manu Chauo, Ozomatli, The Red Elvises, Razorlight, The Audition, Fictionplane, A Rocket to the Moon.

TV: Walking Dead, Firefly, The Americans, Burn Notice, Scrubs, Battlestar Galactica, GOT, Sherlock.

Food: I love all ethnic food, but Thai food holds a special place in my heart.

Booze: I regularly enjoy single malt scotch (Compass Box, Laphroig, Ardberg), and occasionally good bourbon (Bakers 7, Basil Hayden's Reserve, Four Roses). I've never been much of a wine aficionado, but do love a good craft beer.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Morning coffee
After-work beer
Quality banter
Good company
Something to strive for (intellectual, physical or personal)
Shenanigans (not the restaurant).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Making a positive impact
How much I miss quality banter

What it means to be a "strong man" and a feminist while breaking out of the "man box." (Cf. Tony Porter:

Did the confederacy win the civil war? How does a nation begin to heal its wounds?

Are our expectations around intimacy, sex and love simply misguided?

And, of course, the impending zombie apocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Still exploring my new home in LA
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm open about almost everything, perhaps to a fault. For example: I had to erase what I used to have written here because it was definitely attracting the wrong kind of people.

Edit: apparently this response also attracts the wrong kind of people.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-you like to laugh, and you like to make others laugh.

-you're not afraid to be open with people. Real intimacy requires vulnerability.

-you're sincerely passionate about something you do.

-you aren't afraid to be unapologetically intellectual from time to time, and hysterically lighthearted otherwise.

-you do not call your dog your "baby" or refer to yourself as its "momma." I love dogs, but they're not people.
