My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I come from a small town on Lake Ontario. When I was 2 years old, my brother taught me how to sing "Goodbye Blue Skies." And when I was 15 we moved on to Social Distortion. Snowstorms and thunderstorms make me feel at home. And that's my life story.

I'm an organizer for a union, so I talk to people all day for a living. I also produce research and coordinate events.

Living in Buffalo for the last part of my life has helped me to refine my values about community and economic justice. I believe in the potential for a healthy, compassionate society based on meaningful values and mutual aid, and try to incorporate people in my life who share that belief.

More importantly, I want to meet people who are burning with something - people who have passion, feel joy and pain and everything in between. People who don't understand what it means to be alive, and are ok with that.

My top critique of this site is that there should be a section called "What I would like to learn about the most right now." That would be something I would want to know about you! Life is a process full of learning, and moving forward (& blah blah blah...). To kick it off, I will start with this: Eastern European folk music and languages, neighborhood histories of Brooklyn, and physics - generally.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been living in Brooklyn for half a year now. I'm working for said labor union, burning through books from the library, checking out new neighborhoods, meeting people, seeing art and music, and listening to John Shaefer of WNYC on my bedroom radio.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting deals at the farmers' market (I used to work on a farm cause I'm small town like that), shooting free throws (I practiced every day in the cold until my fingers turned blue and I could make 20 in a row while trying to win the city contest for 12-13 year-olds which yes I did win and nothing changed after), and Purple Rain on karaoke night (this is my song and I'm very serious about it).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Tall, eye contact, or the sound of my voice saying "hello."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music:
"Information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, wisdom is not truth, truth is not beauty, beauty is not love, love is not music. Music is the best." (FZ)

Everything. But as the saying goes, it doesn't mean anything unless it has guts, heart, and that swing.

Since you asked, okcupid, the top artists/groups on my playlist right now are: Yo La Tengo, Pearl and the Beard, Bjork, Neil Young, Jeff Buckley, Tom Waits, Joanna Newsom, and Valerie June

Books:
I try to balance fiction and non-fiction. This keeps my brain from devouring itself. The best books I've read recently are Stoner by John Williams, and A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. Other favorites: DF Wallace, Murakami, Alexie, Chabon, Hemmingway, Brautigan...

Movies/Shows:
These days I'm watching documentaries about design and architecture and the Daily Show, while waiting for House of Cards part two.

Food:
Middle Eastern, Northern Indian cuisines are my jam. When I cook, I will try to put fresh ginger in everything I can, though. Just a warning in case you ever experience my cooking.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My voice. Large bodies of water. Space to breathe. Books. And, of course, other people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How all human belief systems are inventions, so we should try to take ourselves much less seriously. And maintain an open mind. In reality, we all know very little...

For instance, we currently have no clue about:

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm home: Taking a bath after a busy week, nursing a beer, and listening to episodes of New Sounds on WNYC.

If I'm out: Seeing some music or a film, or getting drinks. You know, ballin' hard.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...I actually love basketball.

Seriously though, I'll admit anything if you ask. Life is too short, and we don't have time to hide things from each other. Plus, it's better when we don't.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...that's just what you want to do. If you say the right thing, I might even be your short-term pen pal.

We should meet if: you want to talk, compare notes, or share/explore something - a story, a place... I'm a big fan of tea, coffee, and walks with new people.
