My self-summary
Irish émigré pursuing his dream career by enrolling in one of those big fancy New York colleges, studying film-related things.

My life revolves around two things - the people I care about and the films I watch.
There are few things more enjoyable than a long and winding chat with a close friend, whether it descends into utter silliness or a raging debate - you can't beat interesting people, and they're surprisingly great in number.
A devout lover of film since my teens, I live to watch and write about films. Highly opinionated on them, but always willing to give anything a view. If you're thinking of a movie right now, there's a good chance I've seen it.

When I'm not out with a friend or watching a movie, I'm probably out for a run (Prospect Park is the perfect place for that). If I'm not in the mood to run (or if it's too damn cold!), I'll be out walking. Living in Brooklyn for the first time in nearly 10 years, so doing my best to discover fun new places to go.

Dublin born and bred, I love to travel, but am always at my happiest in NYC.

When all else fails, good food and a cold pint never go astray. I'm not too hard to make content.

Lover of puns. You've been warned, I do make a lot of them.

Sometimes I wear glasses. Sometimes I have a beard. Oddly I have no photos of any of these things.
What I’m doing with my life
Back in college for the first time in six years. Studying hard. Too hard.

Trying to make time to explore this city I love so dearly.

Oh, and catching up on a few movies I've missed over the past 100 years or so.
I’m really good at
Picking the right film for the right occasion.
Planning holidays.
Giving strangers directions (lost and confused people seem to home in on me as if by magic)
Making puns. This needed to be reiterated.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am pretty tall, speak quite quickly and can get very enthusiastic about the simplest things with surprisingly little prompting.

In these parts though it's my accent. And the fact that I say "cheers" instead of "thank you".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read nearly enough. For formative reasons I'd have to say The Lord of the Rings is my favourite. Currently reading The Secret History and Manhattan Transfer, a little bit of both at a time. Have plans to read David Copperfield soon. I suspect it won't happen.

Too many movies to list. Honestly I'll watch just about anything. But I will be ever-so vocal in my criticism of it if I hate it. Unless you love it and I'm trying to spare your feelings. But then only maybe.
My favourite film is Network ('76), but I accept that the best film ever made is Lawrence of Arabia.
Recent favourites are Blue Is the Warmest Colour, 12 Years a Slave and The Wolf of Wall Street. Frozen was so charming I could weep.

Favourite shows range from The Wire and Breaking Bad to How I Met Your Mother and classic Simpsons. Boardwalk Empire has recaptured my attention, as, oddly, has Downton Abbey. I pine when The Venture Bros is on hiatus, which it almost always is. But give me a good mini-series like Band of Brothers or The Singing Detective any day.

I will listen to anything and everything, though right now my iPod is just full of running music. Adore Pink Floyd, everything else comes secondary. I will listen to anything you suggest, and likely like it.

Can eat pretty much anything as long as it's not too spicy. Or too awful.
The six things I could never do without
Something to write with, somewhere to walk to, someone to talk to, my smartphone, Cadbury's chocolate, movies.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Movies, politics, the future, the past.

Something that's been bothering me a lot lately - revolving doors. They are utterly incompatible with being a gentleman. The instinct to hold the door open for a lady (i.e. push) contradicts the instinct to let the lady go through first (forcing her to push instead). It's a catch 22 of politeness. This is the kinda shit that keeps me up at night.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the pub having a pint and some proper banter or halfway through a good movie.

Or just studying. Like the nerd I have become.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am more or less incapable of riding a bike, which makes me ineligible for approximately 94% of the women in Brooklyn. So yeah, sorry about that.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–35
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to chat a bit or meet up for a drink, a coffee or a walk.

Or if you just want me to recommend a good film you could watch. I'm good at that...
