Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
OK... born, raised and corrupted in Manhattan. My parents had a
place in Eastern LI, so I got into surfing very young and it still
plays a pretty big part in my life 12 months a year. That means I'm
prone to drop everything for waves once in a while. There are worse
I'm an only child and grew up on the Upper East Side, but have
lived in the East Village pretty much since college.
I work in advertising on the creative side, doing the Don Draper
thing, sans thin ties/ties in general, and (a tad) less on-site
My mother is from Germany. My father is from Brooklyn.
I don't have a lot of hobbies, like stamp collecting or ice
fishing, but I surf 12 months a year in icy LI and NJ, and wherever
work trips and vacations take me.
I won a lot of money on Cash Cab. My eyes change colors in the sun.
I snowboard quite nicely. I'm of the charts at Trivial Pursuit. I
have a lot of vinyl (records, not clothing). When it comes to
dealing with sketchy dogs I put Cesar Milan to shame. Denzel is my
favorite actor. Kool G. Rap and LL are my favorite rappers. Keif
Richards is my favorite human. I do great impressions, esp Denzel
from "Training Day" (working on Christopher Walken. Really tough
one). My favorite bands are The Clash, The Stones, The Who and The
Stone Roses (unintentionally Anglophilic). Current hip hop annoys
me (I'm all about that '79-'95 era, essentially Grandmaster Flash
to Biggie, then... what happened?). Quality Blues and Reggae,
however, doesn't annoy me. Phish, however, does. A lot. I'd prefer
to step on a sea urchin than eat one. I have atrocious penmanship.
I love Menudo. Just kidding. Wanted to see if you were paying
attention. I beyond love horseback riding, esp on Icelandic ponies,
although I seldom get to do it. I don't have a butler. I do have a
Swiffer. Cats know better than to like me (dog person). Hablo
Español pretty well, but far from perfectly. I could use a good
Spanish tutor to close the deal towards fluency. My German was good
as a kid, but crappy now, but it comes back to me when I go to
Berlin to see family. I have awful DIY skills and couldn't set up
an entertainment system if the fate of the world depended on it. I
love Dachshunds. That is all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in advertising, on the creative side and counting my
blessings that I'm not an accountant, or something like that. No
offense to accountants. Just not my forté.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job, sports where you stand sideways on a board, conversation,
impressions, noticing things in general.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my family, a surfboard, an ocean, my record collection, my
passport, Katz's Deli .
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
