I look at this profile as just a jumping off point since it's impossible to "know" a person with just a few words. So here it goes.
I could write a "normal" self-summary, but I thought I would just mention a few things about myself. In the end, it's all about chemistry, for lack of a better word. Here goes...
I've lived in New York City longer than in the town I grew up in, which makes me a non-native native New Yorker.
I was a history major (esp. NYC/American history) so I apologize in advance for telling you what happened historically on that particular block, whether you asked or not.
I work in the film industry but am NOT an actress.
I have a very dry sense of humor.
Whenever I hear someone use the term "curate" that has nothing to do with art, it hurts my head. "He curated the new menu in the restaurant". Ack!!!
I find it impossible to lie, which is often not a good thing.
I am tremendously loyal to my friends.
Watching the sea lions and big cats at the Bronx Zoo makes me happy.
I could stay in the water all day. Does this make me part fish?
I get really excited when I get a high word score in Scrabble.
I'm an amateur photographer (I'm usually on the other side of the lens, thus the not great photos of me on this site). Though I love the convenience of digital photography, having grown up with my own darkroom, I miss using film and the process of watching an image emerge from the chemical stew.
Though I've lived in NYC my entire adult life, I have
A) never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge (though my mother is a native Brooklynite)
B) never been to the Statue of Liberty (though it looks lovely from the Staten Island ferry)
C) never been to Ellis Island (it's not going anywhere, right?)
I really need to remedy this and do all three.
When I see people litter I want to push them into traffic.
I have a great poker face, but don't know how to play poker. I want to learn.
I once won a pair of handcuffs playing Skee-Ball in California, but airport security wouldn't let me take them on the plane. I wonder if the security guard kept them.
I would be in trouble without spellcheck but want auto-correct to die (until I need it, of course). I wrote "are" not "ate"!!! Mad Libs 2013.
Yeah, I work out. I can't say I enjoy it particularly, but I like the feeling of when it's done.
Here are the things that keep me sane (in no particular order) -- movies (in the theater, not on TV), music, theater, the Mets, Bill Maher (now conveniently an owner of the Mets - maybe he can figure out how to get rid of the Wilpons), friends (very important), swimming, the beach, Film Forum (and Film Society of Lincoln Center, etc.), MSNBC, wandering the streets of NYC, restaurants (too many to name), Central Park, a long subway ride when I'm reading a good book, and TRAVEL!!!! (just get on a plane and go - the more exotic, the better, or getting in a car for a road trip. I've been to China, Vietnam, Bali, and many European countries. I think Spain is next on my list, though there are still plenty of places in the US I haven't seen). I'm very spontaneous -- just give me a minute to put on some clothes!
I'm looking for someone who wants to get out and try all types of things, but is also cool with just hanging out, reading a book and just being. We can be together in the same room having an intense conversation, but can also not say anything without feeling the need to fill the air.
I am confident, spontaneous, intuitive, creative, and calm.
