Hey there- So I just recently moved back to NYC after almost three
years in London. I'm loving being back and am looking for someone
to share the experience with. I've got a lot of restaurants on my
I had a childhood rooted in the arts, and I'm trying to bring that
back to my life.
I play online geography quizzes - I'm attempting to label every
country - even those bastard little Pacific islands - which are
always screwing me up (apologies if you hail from one, I'm sure
What I’m doing with my life
I've moved around a bit the last few years and now write research
on funding clean energy investment for a company in New York. I
like my job, and I work hard, but it doesn't consume my life. I'm
definitely career minded at this point though, so I spend a lot of
time reading about related subjects and thinking about what's
I have a serious travel bug, so with whatever time off I have I hit
the road. I have a goal of hitting 30 countries by 30, which I'm
only three away from, so I've got some work to do in the next 8
I’m really good at
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Listening to: Beats In Space podcast, tracks I find on Lagasta,
Matthew Dear, Japandroids, Broken Social Scene, Bud Powell, Miles,
John, Art Tatum and the Jazz Messengers.
Reading: lots and lots of news, I'm a news junkie. Book-wise I'm
into current events, recent history, art history, behavioral
economics, recent fiction recommended by friends, mid-century
existentialism of the Camus type and Beat lit like On The Road, Big
Sur and Naked Lunch.
Watching: stream lots of movies and shows on Netflix, especially
foreign flicks, documentaries and British crime shows like
Wallander, which makes me a 60 year old man.
The six things I could never do without
1- iPod/musical device
2- Current reading material (Times, Economist, Politico etc)
3- My passport
4- Internet cat memes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why somebody decided 'Internet' should be capitalized
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinks with friends, a new restaurant or an old favorite, late
night indie dance party, jazz at one of the neighborhood spots
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can do a full split. We'll talk about why later....
You should message me if
If you like exploring, have a wide open mind and are just generally
curious about what's out there in this massive world, drop me a
line and let's grab a drink.
