My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Princeton, NJ, a picturesque suburb filled with Volvo station wagons, tree-lined streets, and Caucasian people. After studying English and Philosophy at Dartmouth (school mascot: The Fighting Future Management Consultants), I made a "Go West, Young Man" pilgrimage to LA to pursue screenwriting. I was a staff writer on a short-lived NBC show starring Al Franken and worked for several years in TV animation before finally deciding, in my mid 20s, to pursue business.

I split my time between NYC and LA but consider myself more of a New Yorker in personality. I'm close with my family, especially my niece and nephew, and love tennis, unplanned road trips, reading,, museums, working out, skiing, hotels, the fluffy canine pictured in my photo and sexy nerds.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I own a national test prep company ( that uses creative techniques to help students maximize their scores on decidedly un-creative tests like the SAT, ACT, GRE, etc. We help over 15,000 students per year throughout CA, TX, Chicago, and the Northeast. It's an interesting mix of education, entrepreneurship and (unlicensed) psychology. We also provide free services for hundreds of high school students who aspire to go to college but can't afford top-notch tutoring. I also write -- mostly short fiction.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-- Procrastinating when it comes to filling out little rectangles about myself.

-- Typing seemingly benign symptoms like "slight pain in side" into WebMD and then convincing myself I've somehow contracted cancer combined with heart disease, small pox, leprosy and bubonic plague.

-- Surreptitiously feeding gefilte fish to pets beneath the dining room table. (Can't tell you how many seders this got me through during my childhood.)

-- Putting people at ease.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The few remaining members of my family who don't ask me when I'm going to get married and procreate (Grandma, if you're reading this, I know there are a lot of lovely young women on OKCupid. Yes, I did see LosFelizCutie's profile. Yes, she does look a little like Aunt Helen before the accident. Yes, yes, I know girls don't like receiving winks.)

2. Interesting conversation, preferably over...

3. ...good bourbon or wine

4. NPR

5. Spontaneity (a little abstract, but I'm trying to get to six)

6. Exercise
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmm... the most private thing I'm willing to admit on an online dating site. OK, here goes: When I was around twelve or thirteen (the good ol' formative years), my mother (whom I love dearly but can be a touch of a hypochondriac at times) took me to the doctor because she was worried I -- oh, how I wish I were making this up -- had a "throat tumor." The doctor took one look at me, more than one look at my mother, and then said something to the effect of: "Lady, your son is in puberty. That's his Adam's apple." This event may or may not have been discussed several years later in therapy.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a creative, funny, sexy, unpretentious, intellectually feisty girl who's looking for a guy like me. Physically, though I've dated women of all shapes, sizes and carbohydrate intakes, I have a strong preference for slender brunettes with dark eyes and fine features. I think there are a few of those on OKC, no?
