My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not very easy to summarize, and if you don't think you are either then we might be a good match. I've spent as much of my adult life living outside the US as living in it, and while I'm not living in DC for any of the usual professional reasons, I have no plans to leave either.

I love to cook, especially Spanish and Italian, have a huge interest in art history, and as long as the weather is cooperating I'd rather spend a day cycling than doing just about anything else.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
You mean since I got out of prison?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Languages - I'm fluent in four and can get by in a few more. Among other things I translate professionally. I have excellent grammar, which is apparently rare here from the complaints I've been reading (second in frequency only to shirtless selfies), but rarer still I don't have a 'tude about it. I'll see your Oxford comma and raise you a New Yorker diaeresis.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I bear a strong resemblance in person to the pictures I've posted here. You should too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Tulipomania - a history of the 17th Century tulip craze in Holland. You'll never look at a tulip the same way again.

Antifragile, the sequel to The Black Swan (not the psycholesbian ballet drama – the book that predicted the financial crisis a few years ago). Life-changing, if unrelentingly erudite, stuff.

And I can't leave out La Mimica Degli Antichi Investigata Nel Gestire Napoletano (Andrea de Jorio, 1832) You know how Italians tend to talk with their hands? Ever wish someone wrote a dictionary for it? Well someone did, and this is it. Every Italian I've shown it to reacts the same way: "Where did you get this book??"

Music: I especially like anything Brazilian, but will listen to just about anything once, especially live. Just saw Gilberto Gil here at Lisner.

Food: I'll go out for (or preferably cook) just about anything, but am especially fond of Italian and Spanish.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My friends near and far
- Mountain bike
- Passport
- Telescope
- Properly made espresso (almost impossible to get in DC)
- Art
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Art, cooking, and my next trip to Brazil. I travel there a couple of times a year for work, and also have a three-year-old godson who lives near São Paulo.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a drink or a meal somewhere in town, if at all possible outside.

Or coaxing the latest advance in German technology into English for a US patent application if I'm on a deadline. Which doesn't mean I won't be having a drink too.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you'd like to actually meet, and very soon after mutually getting in contact.

...you don't have a picture of yourself tandem skydiving into Machu Picchu and landing in a yoga pose. Shirtless selfies aren't the only annoying photo subject on OKCupid :-) While were at it, when did giant outdoor Jenga become a thing?

...you didn't lie about anything in your profile. Sorry in advance that I even need to say this...

...e se você fala portugues, o você é brasileira e mora aqui em DC o perto de São Paulo, por favor escreve! Várias vezes por ano eu visito o meu afilhado em Vinhedo, e gostaria muito te conhecer na minha próxima visita ao Brasil.
