My self-summary
I'm from the midwest, a boy of the burbs. Did stints with AmeriCorps here and there. I'm approaching almost 2 years in New York after moving east from New Orleans for a grad school journalism degree (i've graduated and am now...impecunious and sad)

So I'm kind of an anxious person, but can occasionally be seen laid-back. ( I probably over-think things, which is helpful (and kinda charming) in my position: writing. I can cook alright, but I don't know how to bake. I love music, but don't dance. Still nerdy. Maybe weird. I like sports. In a Grantland way. I'm totally nice. And travels well.
What I’m doing with my life
Striving to be a better writer, reader, and thinker and not lose my mind; making my way up the journo-ladder.

I think a lot about "the arts" and culture. I try to write about it too— at least when I'm not doing the day job (i look over an outdoor "reading room" of books, magazines, and newspapers in a well-known midtown park) which allows me to do my "real job": again, writing, which currently is on film and art shows, but I have a few long form ideas in me.

[Forgetting to log out of OKCupid on public computers. I should be glad people don't do worse to my profile than this.] saving this for posterity.

Remembering things—dates, names, titles—and now forgetting some...

Being talkative and riffing on all things.

Being a nebbish dilettante.
The first things people usually notice about me
I talk a lot—voluminously and discursively.
I'm thin—i prefer lithe/lithesome
I have a beard.

I'm nice—it's hard to hide.

Lately I've been into steve reich and john jeremiah sullivan
and podcasts—planet money, radiolab, memory palace, tal, judge john hodgman

On a typical Friday night I am
roughly the same person
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I fear sometimes that I am boring and talk too much.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
Here's the important part:

You're some combination of laid-back, serious, passionate, playful, weird, thoughtful, and independent.

You want to go to a play, a dance show, museums, the natural history museum, many movies, parks, bars, Montreal—at some point and would like a partner in thought-crime.

You're sorta nice and totally smart and will call me on my bullshit and talkativeness.

I don't want those protracted, batted game of messages. Doing something is preferred to frittering about and then dropping off. Chat away with me by all means and feel comfortable with me before meeting, but let's prioritize seeing how we do in person. IRL.

Best luck, OKCernauts
