Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an American boy, originally from California. I gave up the
California sunshine (and my sandals) to relocate to London for
work. As a London newbie, I'm excited to explore all that London
has to offer, and hoping to meet fun, interesting people in the
process (hence, the online dating profile)!
Whilst I was raised in Los Angeles, I do not have blond hair, I'm
quite awful at surfing (though I love the ocean), and I'm
reasonably well-informed on international affairs, so I've been
told that I do not fit the "LA bro" stereotype.
Although career-driven, I'm also very laid back and easy-going. I
love to laugh, and I don't take myself too seriously. I also love
to travel, and I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to
explore quite a bit internationally (Turkey is hopefully next on
Although a bit of a political/current events junkie, I suppose that
most of my friends would describe me as the coolest guy in the room
(yes, it still counts if said room is in a library ;).
I also really enjoy watching sports and being "active" (apparent
code for exercising regularly), which keeps the inner-nerd in

Probably my American accent. Also, for what it is worth, I've also
been told that I have nice eyelashes (not the first physical trait
that I would pick to be complimented, but I'll take it :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Law school pretty much killed my attention span for long
novels, so my reading list now generally consists of periodicals
(such as New York Times, Economist, Atlantic Monthly, and Foreign
Affairs) or topical/historical non-fiction.
Movies: Blow, Shawshank Redemption, The Royal Tenenbaums, Before
Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, & Superbad. I'm not a big moviegoer,
but I am usually open to anything other than crummy horror or
action movies lacking a coherent plot.
TV: Modern Family, Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Big Bang
Theory; Girls; Mad Men; and of course the occasional trash reality
tv show (not proud of the last mention)
Music: Honestly, I listen to pretty much anything other than
country music. Hip Hop (Tupac/Snoop/Dre/Lil Wayne);
Alternative/Indie (Phoenix, The Killers, Weezer, The Strokes, Death
Cab, Postal Service); and Top 40 (*cough* Rihanna/Adele/Lana Del
Food: I'll eat most anything, though my favorite cuisines are
Japanese, Thai, Mexican, Seafood, & Italian.

I pierced my ear when I was 17, wore a faux diamond stud for 6
months (b/c naturally every nerdy, Jewish kid needs to sport gaudy
bling), and the hole never closed.
