Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there, internet stranger.
Well first off, I'm incredibly smart, but seriously don't let that
fool you because I'm also incredibly hot.
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 this bad ass
city on a bicycle are two things I really couldn't do without, and
I'm really thankful that I get to do both very frequently.
I live in Crown Heights, and I love this neighborhood to death!
However, I just heard someone refer to the area I live (border of
Crown Heights and Prospect Heights) as 'ProCro'. Barf.
I really wish I could change my username, but OKCupid won't let
you. I wanted to make a nerdy reference to the bad guy from the
Megaman video games, but instead it sounds like a vaguely creepy
cock reference, which I only picked up on after I'd filled out my
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an ass model.
I'm not really.
For the four years before I moved, I shared a crowded minivan with
three other dudes and spread the musical love throughout America
(and sometimes Canada). 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 now all the time,
and it feels great:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing the drums
, and bass guitar
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
Here's some other stuff that both me AND most frat boys are good
at: shooting pool
, and stock trading
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A type of food I like: Thai
A movie I like: The Empire Strikes Back
A band I like: The Pixies
A TV show I like: The Eric Andre show
A series of books I like: A Song of Ice and Fire. Oh, you like it
to? Well then allow me to talk at you for the next three
Don't you wish someone would make a TV show about the two competing
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:
my two best friends (this counts as two)
adventures lasting all day that were planned less than an hour
before being executed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music Theory. Seriously, I will daydream an incredibly esoteric
conversation about music theory with a non-existent person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a bar, live show, or couch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll give you two:
I have a pervasive obsession with Johnny Depp, to the point where
it makes me question certain aspects of my sexuality. It feels
somewhat liberating to tell a website full of strangers.
****update: it's not as pervasive since he did The Lone
I wear fancy clothes for my job, but I constantly think someone
will expose me as a tattooed punk rocker / hippie who has no
business being there.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
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. In other words, message me if you're
kind of a tomboy.
You can love me for my brain and not my Adonis physique. I'm not a
piece of meat.
Who are you looking for?
