My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I returned to New York City about a year ago after spending seven years in San Diego, following lots of years in other cool cities. I missed the culture, and I also have family here, including a niece and nephew.

Summarizing a life is complicated. Instead, why not read a few snippets?

1. After I graduated Wesleyan, I hiked and hitchhiked in the NorCal mountains to visit a friend at a Zen monastery. It was in a valley with land almost straight up on either side, with a rocky swimhole for skinny-dipping and a single unreliable solar telephone.

2. I went to the summer Olympics in Atlanta in 1996, where it was hot as hell, and the greatest athletes from around the world were serenaded by American crowds dancing The Macarena.

3. I had an Italian roommate in Berkeley who'd make pasta for all the Italian grad students and postdocs (and me), after which we'd drive over the Bay Bridge en masse and go dancing in "the city."

4. I lived by the parade route in New Orleans. One Mardi Gras I met six kids who drove from Carleton College in a van and planned to camp outside. I told them they’d wake up murdered (true) and brought them home instead. They slept in the living room, nestled together like puppies.

5. One of my favorite memories of Paris was rollerblading around the city with hundreds of Parisians, accompanied by rollerblading French cops in uniforms and shorts. It was very innocent and communal.

I'm looking for someone intelligent, fun, progressive, and down-to-earth. Capacities for silliness and sarcasm appreciated in equal measures.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why random places I haven't been to in years appear vividly in mind while I'm chopping vegetables.

Why music makes you run faster.

Getting a dog.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My Friday nights are as varied as winter snowflakes, most of which involve crystals of icy craft beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

When I'm on the rowing machine, I like to close my eyes and pretend I'm on the Charles with the Winkielvoss twins.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I need a girl with a sense of humor, an independent thinker who can tell a good story, likes to hear them too, and enjoys a good meander by bike or foot.
