Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Grew up an hour north of the city, traveled around a bunch after
graduating from Cornell and working for IBM, and am now trying out
NYC for the third time in the past 5 years (my friends are making
bets on how long this time will last. So far so good!)
I recently spent a year living/working in Beijing. When I got back,
I left my job and spent the next 2 months riding 15,000 miles
around the US on a motorcycle. It was one of the most incredible
experiences I've ever had. (Waiting to hear back from Guinness
World Records to see if they accept my application for Longest
Motorcycle Journey Within a Single Country - fingers
I'm now working for a startup film production company focused
mainly on documentaries and reality TV.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Constantly being on the lookout for an answer to this question
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pretty much everything. Is that bad to say?!
I love figuring out how to do things, especially when other people
aren't able to.
The one thing I am terrible at is cooking, though to be fair I've
never really given it a shot. I do pop a mean popcorn in the
microwave and once seriously considered opening a restaurant that
only served cereal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My blue eyes. I got them from my mom.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I definitely have favorites, but when it comes down to it I'm
usually up for at least trying almost anything.
To list a few things:
-music: I love classic rock but I can also be found listening to
Top 40 songs every now and then. I've never been big into country,
but it's been growing on me a bit lately. Rap isn't really my
thing, but there are always exceptions....
-books: My Side of the Mountain (I always wanted to do that), The
Alchemist, all the Malcolm Gladwell books, Moneyball (the movie
too), Oh The Places You'll Go...
- Movies: Dumb and Dumber, Happy Gilmore, Shawshank, Life is
Beautiful, Cool Hand Luke, lots of others
-tv shows: I'm getting tired of TV and probably wouldn't even have
cable anymore if it wasn't cheaper to have both cable and Internet
bundled together, but if I had to choose it would be things like
Jeopardy (love jeopardy), Futurama (don't make fun of me), shark
tank, modern family, shows that are similar to planet earth, the
history channel shows that used to be on the history channel before
it got overrun with mindless reality tv about people chopping down
trees and truck drivers who need to make it across frozen lakes
before they melt...
Sorry for my little rant there :-)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My six cliche things:
1. Family (I kind of have the best one in the world)
2. Friends (I also have the best in the world. Some still from
3. Travel (a lot of people seem to put "passport" on here. Although
I do love going to and seeing other countries, the US is so
gorgeous and diverse in its own right that theoretically I would be
ok without having my passport as long as I could travel around
4. Water of some kind (beach or lake, I'll take either any
5. Teddy (my dog. I struggled putting this on here. He's a huge
pain in the ass and I hate him, but only in the most loving kind of
6. My lungs, heart, brain, or other major organs (just seemed like
they shouldn't be left off the list...)
My six (hopefully) not-too-cliche things:
1. Laughter (life's too short to get upset)
2. Crazy adventures (the motorcycle trip is just one example. I've
got plenty more on the list!)
3. Spontaneity (things get boring if you don't shake them up every
once in a while)
4. Movie theater popcorn (it's just so damn good)
5. A shower (I just love taking showers)
6. Oranges (really all fruit. But oranges - and orange juice too -
are the best)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I probably should have been diagnosed with ADD as a kid because I
constantly think about so many different things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Recently I've been working on most Friday nights and I could use a
good excuse to leave the office - so let's meet up!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cried during The Notebook. There, I said it...
