Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there, internet stranger. Let's do this.
I'm a North Carolina transplant and while I really love NC, Chapel
Hill was starting to feel a little small. Moving to Brooklyn turned
out to be a great decision and five years later I'm still pretty
enamored with this place. Playing music and exploring the city on a
bicycle are two things I really couldn't do without, and I'm really
thankful I get to do both very frequently.
I'm not a super macho type of guy, so if you're in to bros you
might want to move on to the next profile. Very much in favor of
gay rights, feminism, racial tolerance and equality (institutional
and individual), etc. You know, one of THOSE types. I also somewhat
inexplicably love playing poker and watching pro football / college
basketball, especially the UNC Tarheels.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the five years before I moved, I shared a crowded minivan with
three other dudes and drummed my way through America and Canada.
I'm glad it's over, but would not trade that experience for
Now that I'm in NYC, I work for NYU Shanghai, which is NYU's new
campus in China. When I first moved here, I gave up music for
almost an entire year, which turned out to be a pretty good
decision - I'm playing again all the time, and it feels great. I'm
a drummer by trade, but have been playing mostly piano lately. My
ultimate goal is to play like and look as cool as Dr. John.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling the truth, playing the drums
, and bass guitar
, trivia, making white
russians, being a loyal friend (I've had the same two best friends
since I was eight), being an asshole to other assholes, being your
adventure partner, thinking hard about politics and, just to be
honest, thinking hard about pop culture.
Here's some other stuff that both me AND most frat boys are good
at: shooting pool
(notable exception to truth telling), and stock trading

sides of your personality? Someone actually did for me, it's called
'Freaks and Geeks'!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
All of the seven deadly sins except wrath. I can live without wrath
in my life. OK, here's a less cheeky response:
the collected works of Ray Bradbury
bicycle (how very Brooklyn)
adventures lasting all day that were planned less than an hour
before being put in to action
that last one counts twice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The inane, minute differences between the Game of Thrones books and
All the negativity! Can we just be OK with the fact that we're all
on a dating site!?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Building a fort out of couch cushions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wear fancy clothes for my job, but I sometimes think I'm going to
walk in to work one day and someone will expose me as a tattooed
punk rocker / hippie who has no business being there.

You want to have a bike adventure.
I find women much sexier covered in grease fixing a bike than
dolled up in a cocktail dress. Tomboys are encouraged to apply!
