My self-summary
I moved here more than 10 years ago from South Jersey (no, not the part from MTV), and while I love it here, I'll always be from New Jersey at heart (and will never understand the crippling fear of sleet that this city has).

When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with friends, music, playing piano and saxophone, attempting to cook, rooting on the Terps, Yankees, and Giants, reading, traveling (mostly domestically, but I'd love to get abroad more at some point), and exploring D.C. I'm looking to find a girl with similar interests who can challenge me as I challenge her.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a fundraiser for a local university. If you had told me coming out of college that this is what I'd be doing for a living, I would have laughed, but it's really rewarding work that lets me see the impact of what I do directly when a student gets a scholarship or we can fund new research. I feel lucky to have the chance to do something where I feel like I'm making a difference when I go to work.
I’m really good at
listening. It sounds corny, but the common bond between what I do for a living now and what I studied in college (journalism) is the chance to listen to people's stories and relate to them, which I really enjoy.

Also, writing, editing, obscure sports and political trivia, and evidently making lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll let you decide that when you meet me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - "To Kill a Mockingbird," "The Catcher in the Rye," "Animal Farm," "The Things They Carried," "The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America," "Nickel and Dimed," "Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs." Also, a lot of random non-fiction or George Pelecanos novels.

Music - My tastes generally lean toward acoustic or piano rock. Favorites include Ben Folds, Marc Broussard, Guster, Dispatch, Jimmy Eat World, John Legend, Bruce Springsteen, Trombone Shorty, OAR, Billy Joel, Foo Fighters, and The Gaslight Anthem. I listen to a little bit of everything, though, except hard-core rap, thrash metal, or Toby Keith-esque country.

I'm also a big stand-up comedy fan. Some of my favorites there include Mike Birbiglia, Aziz Ansari, John Mulaney, and Wyatt Cenac.

As much as I love music, I also listen to a bunch of podcasts, including: Bullseye, Fresh Air, This American Life, The B.S. Report, The Grantland Network, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, and Pop Culture Happy Hour.

Movies = "Shawshank Redemption," "The Usual Suspects," "Casablanca," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Garden State," "Office Space," "Airplane," "The Princess Bride," "Toy Story 3," "Back to the Future"

TV = "The West Wing" remains my gold standard, but I also enjoy "The Daily Show," "The Colbert Report," "How I Met Your Mother," "The League," and "No Reservations." I haven't developed the ability yet to binge-watch whole seasons of TV shows, but I need to do it so I can catch up and pretend I know what's going on when people are talking about "Breaking Bad" or "Mad Men" around the water cooler.

Food = Pasta, seafood, traditional Jewish food, burgers, soup, water ice, Wawa iced tea lemonade. NOT Thai food (I'm allergic to peanuts, so it's more than just a dislike.)
The six things I could never do without
1) My family and friends
2) Air conditioning
3) Access to news, whether newspapers, TV, or Internet
4) My iPhone (as much as I hate to be that guy)
5) An alarm clock
6) An Epi-Pen (if we want to be literal about this)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything, really. I tend to overthink most things, but I'm working on getting better about that.

The biggest things, though, are probably:

1) my family
2) work
3) sports
4) things I'm passionate about (current events, education and access to higher education, other non-profit, do-gooder type things)
5) what I'm doing this weekend
6) plotting what types of trips I would take if I won the lottery
7) what it would be like if the Red Line actually worked the way it's supposed to all of the time
On a typical Friday night I am
either at happy hour with friends, at synagogue with friends, or relaxing after a long week at work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I lived in Virginia for two years and never managed to figure out the highways there without my GPS.
I’m looking for
  • Straight girls only
  • Ages 22–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
you're looking for a "nice Jewish boy," appreciate a blend of sarcasm and kindness, and are interested in someday visiting all 50 states.
