Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, who am I? I'm a guy with some pretty strong and interesting
convictions. I've lived a few different lives: an orthodox Jew, a
blue collar paramedic in NYC, an activist and now an herbalist with
aspirations to open up an educational farm to teach ethical and
sustainable medicines and healing food cultivation.
In other words, I have a fantastic background story that led me to
being a farmer at this age. The experiences I have had will last
with me forever, and have turned me into a much more compassionate
human being. I believe in fighting for what is right, and I want
this world to just learn how much easier it is to love than to
Politics are pretty important to me, I'm not sure I can hold up to
someone who isn't interested in radical politics, or at least
willing to learn about it. Overall, I think most would consider me
to be far left of a liberal, most likely leftist, and pretty vocal
about it. I love political discussion, how else can I learn what
others believe and why they believe what they believe?
I love hanging out, although I am admittedly not much of a drinker.
That being said, I find it hard to turn down a Malbec or a fruity
At the end of the day, I find myself being drawn towards the
simpler pleasures of life. Lastly, I love nature, I cannot get
enough of it. I hope you are into nature (at least a little).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting up a permaculture farm, researching and building new
innovative methods to affect society by way of agriculture.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Before I left my EMS career, I was the youngest person in FDNY's
history to complete the training program for the unit I was on. So
I guess at those skills??
Also, I can fix many things and give some natural medicine advice.
Additionally, I can make a spicy cabbage soup that will turn a
cabbage hater into a cabbage lover. I have converted many folk to
the wonders of my cabbage soup.
Finding excuses to soak in a hot spring, hot tub or bath.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've got a fantastic head for #1) wearing hats and #2) for being
bald. I've been told I carry the best features that all bald people
could hope for. 3) my service dog. 4) probably in NY it will be the
hat and boots.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite book series (yes I am a bit of a nerd at heart) The Wheel
of Time series by Robert Jordan. But my favorite individual books
are Mutual Aid - Kropotkin, The Rebel - Camus, I have a library
filled with radical books, healing books and natural medicines.
Lately I've not had much time to read anything except
I used to watch movies often and TV often, but I've been cutting
down tremendously. So I guess I don't have a favorite movie,
although I love slapstick comedies. TV shows, I am addicted to
Community, but other than that, most shows I can take or
Music...not enough space or time to rant on my music tastes. I like
variations of rock, my favorite band of all time, hands down is
Dispatch. I Listen to an inordinate amount of bluegrass, and I am
not ashamed to admit I like new country when I'm driving,
especially long distance, but it is not a requirement.
Food...I'm a picky eater - by necessity, not by taste, I wish I
could eat everything I do miss cheese and noodle concoctions of all
types. But I am supremely healthier on this gut healing diet I took
on so I can remain off of pharmaceuticals.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sage - my four legged best bud
Music (of the types I prefer)
Time to connect with plants.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can apply what I have learnt with what I am learning and make
this world a little better.
Also what I'm having for my next meal is usually on my mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, I just delivered my friend's baby on a Friday night/Saturday
morning before light. I'd love to make that a regular thing - but
honestly I'm usually being a dork and playing dungeon's and dragons
with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I secretly will feel as if I've truly made it when I have some land
with a decent herbal medicine farm/garden on it, and a horse to
ride on the land with my two dogs frolicking in the grasses and
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you find me interesting and wish to chat. I can't imagine why else
you'd message me. I am a non-traditional guy. I don't care who
messages first, but I can be a little shy with sending out emails.
So, feel free to message me. Even if you aren't interested in a
date but think I'd be a cool friend, that's all good too. Hoping to
hear from you!
Also, if you are going to send a tiny one sentence message...please
reconsider. I want to know that the person I meet, and may be a
partner of mine, will put in the effort. Hope y'all understand.
