My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from Philadelphia, and have been living in NYC for about 6 years. I just recently spent a 1-year stint in London with traveling throughout Europe on the weekends. I have been back in the States for almost a year, but I miss Europe quite a lot. I'm a typical yuppie, and am mildly hipster. I have a penchant for telling stories. I'm pretty progressive with my politics, but am in no means an activist. I am a first-generation American.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software engineer at a big Internet company. I am quite engaged with my work, and put a lot of my own personality into it. I'm very much a perfectionist. I recently switched from working on a consumer-facing product to something far more technical. This switch is an attempt at exploring something new. It's quite challenging, and I don't know if it's for me in the long run. If you understand or have an interest in technology, that's a plus. I don't detach from my job very easily, and you'd likely hear lots of technical yapping from me, but I'm keen on making it accessible with patient explanation and copious amounts of metaphor.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
programming a computer, primarily. I write things for humans as well. I am an obsessive Yelp review writer, and am proud of my membership in the Yelp Elite club (a real thing). I had a daily blog on Facebook during my London year, and was guilty of oversharing, trolling, offending other cultures, and getting into protracted Internet arguments. My Facebook friends seemed to enjoy it. I have been swing dancing, particularly Lindy Hop and Balboa, for over 10 years. Some people seem to be shocked that other people take swing dancing seriously. If you are one of those people, prepare to be shocked.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If we are talking about visuals, it's that I am ever so slightly ginger. If we are talking about personality, it's my annoying tendency of always trying to be the smartest guy in the room. My manager told me to stop doing that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I don't particularly like this section, and I don't think you will get much information from reading this.

I don't really watch that many movies anymore, although I do like movies.

I also like books but I honestly don't read that many books. I'm trying to make my way through an introductory textbook on Category Theory right now. If you know anything about Category Theory or other advanced fields of mathematics, that's a plus.

Regarding TV shows, I subscribe to Real Time with Bill Maher religiously. I watched all of Cosmos with Neil DeGrasse Tyson and enjoyed it immensely. I just finished Breaking Bad after slogging through, and liked it, but not nearly as much as everyone else did. I also watch the Daily Show now and then.

Regarding live shows, I used to be into theatre when I had a theatre-oriented girlfriend. I haven't seen any live theatre in a while.

Regarding music, I'm not a big fan. That's not to say that I don't like music... I do love music. I'm just not a fan of musicians like other people seem to be. If you were to ask me which bands I'm into right now, I'd answer "whatever it is that the AutoPlay on Rdio has been streaming into my headphones." There was a time where I was a pretty active DJ in the swing dancing scene, and collected swinging and hot jazz from the 20s, 30s, and 40s.

Regarding food, I am very adventurous and curious with food. I try everything. I just don't like cilantro.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Computer programming
Vast quantities of random information accessible on the Internet
A job that lets me sleep in and come to work late
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the differences between New York and other cities, America and other countries.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
cycling through my mental rolodex of friends I haven't seen recently, calling one, and doing something usually involving drinking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I went through a multi-year phase of my life of checking every number in sight for divisibility by 11. It all started when, as an adolescent Mathlete, I was trained in various methods for quick divisibility checks. It felt magical, and since then, I've been admiring the various shapes and colors that multiples of 11 come in.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Honestly, I think online dating is a large time sink, and is fairly ineffective. You should message me if there is fairly high confidence that we will be compatible, and that the conversation we have online won't feel like it's scripted. I have, in the past, found great connections with people on OkC, whether it was for a short-term or a long-term thing, and it would be nice to replicate that. But I'm different a person now, and I don't know what that kind of connection would look like now.
