My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My shirt sleeves are almost always rolled up.

I dig the internet. I'm sort of a politics/news and pop-culture junkie. Writing is a pretty big part of my life, and messing around with data to try and prove stuff is playing an increasingly big role these days.

I like cynicism, but am a secret idealist (cat's out of the bag now).

I like reflexivity, self-awareness and introspection (and saying three things that mean roughly the same thing) as well as debating, smart people who disagree with me, and the Oxford comma.

I'm totally crazy about moss. It is just so soft; it begs for bare feet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished a Masters degree in the Social Science of the Internet at Oxford, which is apparently a thing.

I am particularly interested in the intersection of networked communication technology and public policy - hence the move to DC. Right now I do research at a non-profit/think tank focusing on transparency and money in politics. I occasionally do freelance commentary and analysis writing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking (although without sharp knives it is a pain, maybe I should put those in my "things I can't live without" section.)
I make a mean Martini. (Gin. Extra dry, extra dirty.)
I'm OK at the didgeridoo, with circular breathing and whatnot.
Finding great breakfast spots.
Walking the line between cynicism and nihilism but not crossing it. Sometimes crossing it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My tendency to be goofy. Also my deep magenta aura...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Memory Chalet (Tony Judt), The Culture novels (Iain M. Banks), William Gibson, Yochai Benkler on Internet things.

Movies: I have a soft spot for both romantic comedies and bromantic comedies. I tend to approach movies as lighthearted escapism and, in that context, I enjoy movies that are bad. Movies I often return to include: Bladerunner, Seven Samurai, I Love You, Man, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, The Princess Bride.

Shows: Pushing Daisies, The West Wing, Louie, Archer, Cupid (1998 version, please), Parks and Recreation, Party Down, Terriers, Girls Many many others.

Music: Menomena, Mogwai, Yo La Tengo, Sebadoh, Pavement, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sujan Stevens, James Blake, Apples in Stereo, Circulatory System, My Bloody Valentine, Flaming Lips, Also a lot of 90s kid nostalgia e.g. Third Eye Blind

Food: Sushi. More Sushi. Also Indian food, particularly south Indian. Breakfast is the best meal of the day to eat out. I dig gastro-pub stuff too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Internet. Seriously though, no wikipedia, google, maps, Spotify or Twitter would be rough.

Sharp Chef's knife (I took my own advice from above). Also a Wok. And a cast iron pan. OK, let's go with a stocked kitchen...

Pop-culture. I think The AV Club counts as a sub-thing-I-could-never-do-without for this one, because over-analyzing pop-culture is (at least) half the fun.

Intense and wonky political conversation over beers. Particularly when it gets heated.

Podcasts. In particular, living without the Slate Gabfests, Radiolab and This American life is something I hope I never have to face. Comedy Bang Bang is truly special.

New things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Shall I dare to eat a peach?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I prefer bars or pubs that are quiet enough to have conversation over clubs, although occasionally going dancing is fun. I might be having a group of people over and cooking for them, or going to a show. Long summer Fridays where an afternoon BBQ merges into an impromptu party are the best.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can hold up your end (of whatever: a conversation, a bargain, a drinking contest).
