As I’m sure you’ve noticed from my photos, I exude the mystery and
swagger of a movie star, wry detachment and a passionate sense of
cool. That’s not to say I’m without kindness, sensitivity and
down-to-earth good graces. Just kidding.
What I’m doing with my life
I used to mess with numbers on computers all day long. Then I left
my technology work in the city to go get me some more learning in
law and business (graduated a few months back) while living the
other half of my life in New York, working at a hedge fund. Then I
co-founded a technology firm instead of all of that. Back to the
I’m really good at
Making machines dance. Procrastinating. New York.
The first things people usually notice about me
I speak absurdly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Kundera, Dostoevsky, David Foster Wallace (R.I.P.), and all
the greats. And if anyone's ever read "Moscow to the End of the
Line," let me know. Philip Roth and Saul Bellow are pretty near and
dear. Hopscotch, by Cortazar. These days I'm ambivalent about
Shteyngart. But I'll read anything by Nabokov.
Movies: Bergman or Tarkovsky (Solaris, Andrei Rublyev...). Netflix
has a ton of Bergman on instant right now so it's a deep well to
draw from - I can't stop. All-time favorite just might be Noah
Baumbach's "Kicking and Screaming." Not really, but I've seen it a
whole lot of times.
Music: standard indie canon, heavy 90s bent. Yo La Tengo, Pavement,
Archers of Loaf, Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth. At the end of the day,
my favorite bands are still the Cure and My Bloody Valentine. The
Kills I like, too. Oh, and Nadja: Canadian ambient doom metal,
anyone? I used to go to the All Tomorrow's Parties festivals on
those years when I can and hang with the aging 90s indie rockers.
But they don't really do those anymore.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, economics, technology, and rock n' roll.
On a typical Friday night I am
Deep in my cups.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I grew up being told that girls' knees are taboo.
You should message me if
Or you like bourbon.
I’m looking for someone with all the usual good qualities; humor,
kindness, intelligence, and hopefully a dash of rock and roll
