My self-summary
I'm currently grinding through my late 20's, focusing a bit too much on my work, and not spending nearly enough time with all you crazy motherfuckers that call New York home. It's pretty simple really, I'm looking to meet people to shoot the shit with, imbibe good spirits, eat good food, and just generally get to know.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I do a whole bunch of coffee shit; I roast, do training, do equipment maintenance, and run the coffee program of a fairly well known group of cafes in Manhattan. I like to think I take my job incredibly seriously but myself not at all (I don't have a stick up my ass when it comes to this stuff). Other than that, I paint a little bit, write a bit more than that (fiction of all flavors), and consume any media I can get my hands on.
I’m really good at
Telling stories in person
Making coffee
Following instruction booklets
Cooking Italian food (but not anything else, thanks Mom)
Amateur foley
The first things people usually notice about me
My baby blues (thanks gramps)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I cycle through bands and genres pretty rapidly, but here's whats on my Spotify playlist at this very moment: Smashing Pumpkins, Redneck Manifesto, Toe, Wilco, Radiohead, The Smiths, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sigur Ros, The Most Serene Republic, This Town Needs Guns, The National, My Bloody Valentine, blah blah blah blah

Top 3 movies right now (subject to change at a whim):
The Third Man
Being John Malkovich
Blade Runner

For TV, it's all the usual suspects- anything HBO puts out, AMC's lineup the last few years, some network comedies and dramas (I think Lost is a flawed masterpiece and The Sopranos is the best show ever written).

I could name drop a whole shitload of authors to sound cool and learned but I just want to say this: Vonnegut is the fucking man

I might not enjoy everything I try, but I will eat literally anything (hell if I was drunk enough you might be able to convince me to go to that restaurant in queens that serves testicles and brains and intestines and whatever else.
The six things I could never do without
Naps that are slightly too long to be healthy

Cliche responses to this question
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The good old days (which is weird because they weren't that good and I'm not that old)
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably sleeping because I work on Saturday mornings. On a typical *Saturday* night I'm usually trying to organize a quiet night in with a group of people I genuinely care about. I'm turning into an old fart.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My last profile was described to me as 'aggressively snarky' and really wasn't doing me any favors, so I completely re-wrote the whole thing so I didn't come off like such a wanker. It hurt my pride.
You should message me if
Message me if you actually feel like taking a chance to spend a little bit of time to meet up with a total stranger and maybe making something good come of it. Seriously.

I also hate farting around in these messages for too long, so don't be shocked if I give you my number right off the bat (texting is just more convenient).

And at the risk of sounding too forward, I'm on here because I want to go out on dates and interact with people in real life, so if you're cool with that then give me a holler!
