Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Intelligent, sensitive and thoughtful multiracial young Jew. I'm
the kind of person who is perfectly happy being alone for days on
end, with only books, shows, games and movies to entertain them. I
devour experience. When I encounter a world I want to explore and
understand, I move in and internalize its logic.
I'm gregarious and silly in public, but understated and relaxed
when left to my own devices. If I'm not speaking, I'm taking in my
surroundings, people-watching, eavesdropping, and/or silently
judging everyone because that's what you do.
A teacher once said about me, "He lives in a fantastic and
interesting world, but it would be nice if sometimes he'd let us
come visit." And that's probably still apt, but, I think, in a
different way than originally meant.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I freelance as a CAD (Computer-Aided Drafting) drafter in the
architecture realm to make extra dough. When I'm not working, I'm
reading, watching tv and movies (good, bad, and weird), playing
videogames, etc. Basically, if you give me a good story or a
fascinating world to occupy, I'm all in.
I'm an aspiring writer and have to be more diligent about putting
pen to paper. Create rather than consume, right? The dream is to
publish a novel, or write a comicbook, but I'm also intrigued by
the thought of writing critically, and potentially commercially,
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking. Seriously. I grew up near Boston, so dry sarcasm is my
baseline. Wait...dry sarcasm with a wry smile is my baseline. I'm
also passionate about what may classically be considered nerdy
things, so I will beam my winning smile at you while I talk about
how conceptually exciting virtual reality is and how videogames and
comicbooks are fascinating and rich narrative platforms.
I've also been told I'm a great dancer, but I think that's more a
result of the fact that dancing is the most fun. Period. It's
probably less that I'm a great dancer and more that I like dancing,
which I've heard is not something a lot of guys do.
I can also sing. And write. And draw (this one's a stretch, as I
haven't regularly drawn since I finished Architecture school, but I
imagine I'm well above average in this regard).
The first things people usually notice about me

Eye contact and a genuine smile.
I'd like to say it's the genuine care and interest behind my,
"How's your day going?" I actually give a shit when I ask;
otherwise I'd just...not ask. Right? Is that crazy? Good.
Realistically, it's my legs or my arms. I bike every day, so my
legs and arms (surprisingly, because arms?) are very toned. I've
been told that I have "great arms," so instead of just wearing
tanks because they're super-comfy (like I used to and still mostly
do), I sometimes wear tanks to show off. Mmmmm…low-level

I'm just gonna shoot for all-time and follow the damn category
headline, rather than trying to list every single thing I have ever
liked and hoping you read a solid block of text that is all titles
(I like you too much to do that to you):
Books: Catch-22, Cat's Cradle, The Hellboy Saga
Movies: Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Waking Life, Frank
Shows: Adventure Time, Arrow, Louie (wow, curveball
Music: Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, Arcade Fire (…there's
nothing I can say here that would make me seem less like a douche,
so I'm not going to defend these.)
Food: Thai, Japanese, Dim-Sum (I enjoy all cuisine, but if I had to
put together a last meal, it would be culled from these. Also,

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Smoking a bowl and alternating between playing videogames online
with friends and watching NetFlix. I'm not an L.A. nightlife person
on the weekends. Sunday, Monday or Tuesday, let's get a mellow
drink, but I don't want to wait fifteen minutes to order an
overpriced drink only to then yell at your face, hoping you hear
the most important parts of what I'm saying because the music is
too loud for actual conversation.
