My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Canadian from Toronto who just finished grad school at Columbia University for creative writing. One of my professors said the best compliment he could give me is that I am, "a buffoon with occasional insights into the human condition."

Things I really like: narrative non-fiction, 80s cop movies, guacamole, jazz music, amateur wrestling, the delicious burned part of food (that apparently gives you cancer?), long social realist novels, standup comedy, guacamole, paying way too much attention to the NBA, junk food with candy inside of it already.

I try to only do things that are really important or really fun. And yes, I'm produced by Pharrell.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing and working in NY (in other words, my LSAT score is good for a few more years, so given the odds of writing success, I'm really just getting prepped for law school :) )
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
going to the gym, quoting The Sopranos, making little kids on the subway laugh by blowing bubblegum bubbles and then looking innocuously at their parents, drawing connections between literary fiction and Lindsey Lohan's arrest record, creatively combining Sour Patch Kids flavors to entertain myself during movies, ranking flavors of Ben and Jerry's ice cream I haven't eaten, eating Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

Also, I wrestled in college and I throw a pretty nasty suplex, but that's a 5th date demonstration - if you're lucky.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look a lot like Tim Tebow.
Or that I was the assistant captain of your college lacrosse team.
Or like I was in the military.
Or Conservative Christian TV personality Pat Robertson.
In short, I look like the opposite of the goofy, sarcastic, Canadian Jewish guy I am on the inside.
Also, I wear a lot of v-neck sweaters, which I've been assured via market research is a value-neutral choice: friendly to democrats/republicans, men/women, able/handicapped --basically anyone without a serious upper chest hair problem.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Food: i eat a lot of meat and dessert--and will pay top dollar to discover creative ways of combining the two. I'm currently working on a business model for Ben n' Jerky's, a high protein handheld method for getting all the deliciousness of ice cream with all the factory-sealed convenience of beef jerky.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
cake icing, water, tabasco sauce, heat, shelter, additional cake icing to replace the cake icing I ate as you read this.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How many "a few tips for your online dating profile" draft emails my wonderfully Jewish mother has saved in her outlook express, in case I ever mention to her that I'm on this site.
(BTW, it's at least 10, plus some cute photos of me as a kid to include for good measure. And a recipe for matzah ball soup. UPDATE: For Valentine's Day, I sent her a dozen tulips. She sent me a 3 page email (factum, really!) describing how I should hold out hope that some day a "fabulous woman will fall head over heels for me.")
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Photoshopping myself and Mayor of Toronto/personal hero Rob Ford into pictures of crackdens/petting zoos. In my imagination, he always brings guacamole, which goes well with crack and/or baby llamas.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't ride a bike. I blame the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/ dysfunctional parents. Detailed explanation to follow.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you hate BOTH terrorism and overpriced baked goods.
A rare kind of integrity in a world of declining moral standards.

Or if you have a good sense of humor, and like nice guys who are surprisingly clumsy.
