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, thunderstorms, and a cup of coffee make me feel at home. And that's my life story.

Living in Buffalo for the last part of my life helped me refine my values on social and economic justice, which is a big part of who I am. I believe that a compassionate society, based on respect, cooperation, and mutual benefit is possible - and I want to surround myself with people who also believe this, and try to make it real in their own lives.

But much more than that, I really want to meet people who are burning with something - people who care, about anything. I want to hear you talk about the thing that you care about. I don't pretend to understand what it means to be alive. The world is a dream all around you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Organizer. Essentially, I talk to people for a living. In my spare time you can find me 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 1980s bedroom radio as much as possible. Or, I'm babysitting my 2-year old nephew, because he rules.
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 because I'm small town like that.) Shooting free throws (Yes, 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

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)

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

Here are how my most favorite categories break down (with an example for each):
Intellectual/"World"/Trancey Stuff: The show New Sounds on WNYC with Jonathan Shaefer
Demographically Popular Music: Whatever-I-Can-Find on Youtube // "Mellow Stuff" // or Bjork
Rock'N'Roll: Yo La Tengo
Folk/Americana: Gillian Welch and David Rawlings
Contemporary Composition (aka "weird stuff"): Roomful of Teeth // Steve Reich

Books:
I try to balance fiction and non-fiction. This keeps my brain from devouring itself. I just re-read To Kill A Mockingbird, and I also just went through a book of science fiction shorts selected by Ray Bradbury and Alfred Hitchcock. Other than that, the best books I've read recently are Stoner by John Williams, and A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. Favorites: Murakami, Alexie, Hemmingway, and Brautigan when everything gets too real...

Movies/Shows:
I love animated short films. I don't really watch a lot of feature films, but when I was in Amsterdam this summer I saw Boyhood, which really moved me. I've also been recently impressed by Her, Gone Girl (I know it is a great book, smarty-pants), and one other that I can't think of right now...

Food:
You can find me in my kitchen, listening to the radio, and making something delicious many nights during the week. I'll eat just about anything, if it's good. No longer a vegetarian anymore, but a big fan of the vegetable kingdom.
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 // Bulleit Rye Whiskey // My Bialetti coffee maker // A musical instrument to play // 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, nursing a beer, and listening to episodes of New Sounds on WNYC. Then snuggling up with some whiskey and netflix.

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.
You should message me if
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.
