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
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
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 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. As a wise man once said, if you're having fun on the dance floor, you're looking good. That man had never seen "The Elaine."
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 it's vaguely like riding a bike).
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a silly moustache. Sometimes (most times) it's a mad scientist moustache, sometimes it's a dastardly handlebar moustache, but it's always, throughout, a moustache.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Catch-22, Cat's Cradle, The Hellboy Saga
Movies: Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Waking Life, Frank
Shows: Adventure Time, Arrow, Louie
Music: Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, Arcade Fire
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, tiramisu.)
The six things I could never do without
Dogs, in general.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why are people are usually more offensive while trying not to
Would cute-animal-based healthcare extend the average human
How can I say what I want and still be context-appropriate?
On a typical Friday night I am
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, yeah?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If there's a dog in your profile photo, I'm likely to check your photos just to see more of the dog. Dogs are mankind's greatest achievement in the realms of both cuddles and friendship.
You should message me if
you want to smoke out and play videogames and watch movies and TV shows. Or want to go to some shows, music, comedy, art, etc. Or if you want to go for a nice bike ride and then picnic. Or if you were entertained by the majority of the above text.
Or if you're as unbelievable as this young lady: http://youtu.be/N6jG4A_mQGg
I know there won't be many bites here, but if I elicited a smile from you at some point during your read-through, we both totally fucking won. Revel in it.
