My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Adventurer at heart and in deed. I strive to live my life in such a way that should it ever flash before my eyes (again -- I’ll explain later), it will be worth watching.

I'm just as content with a lazy Sunday morning in bed with coffee and the Times as I am going on a hunt for adventure in the city.

New challenges and experiences thrill me, so when opportunity knocks to try something new and different, you won’t hear me complain. Anything goes -- from a trip to Rwanda to trapeze lessons. I’ve jumped out of a perfectly good airplane but have yet to ride a roller coaster. The next challenge I have lined up is the 2014 NYC marathon. I've seen a fair chunk of the world (a lot of it solo), but the itch is always there to see even more. Care to join me? Say hello!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Loving it and soaking up every ounce of it.

By day, I direct the communications department at a social policy nonprofit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Witty banter. Word play. Nerding out on wine. Road trips. Traveling. Wandering. Big talk (as opposed to small talk). Laughing genuinely.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an expressive face. Wedding photographers adore me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Movies: True Romance, anything Almodovar, Casablanca, David Lynch, Stealing Beauty, Big Lebowski, Lucia y el Sexo, The Sweetest Thing.

Podcasts: Slate Political Gabfest, On the Media, Planet Money, This American Life, Freakonomics, The Moth, TED Radio Hour.

Food: Former vegetarian who now eats anything, from bone marrow at Blue Ribbon to tacos from the truck on my block. I spent some time in the restaurant industry here in the city and enjoying its culinary adventures is one of my favorite things. Also, the friends I made in the industry are some of the best people in the world, hands down.

Wine: Chenin Blanc, Gigondas, Bandol, rose from Provence... I like small producers, organic and biodynamic stuff, anything imported by Savio Soares.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are of course the obvious things (family, sustenance, shelter), and then there are the things that nourish my soul, without which I might get a bit grumpy:

- The promise of spring
- One lazy morning a week
- Coffee
- Running outside
- My cat (I grew up with a house full of pets - home isn't truly home without one)
- Language in its many forms (written, spoken, musical)

And a bonus: wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Billy Pilgrim, and how awesome it would be to harness his ability in a controlled manner. Politics. Wine. Food. The Red Sox. Travel. IT band stretches and how I should be doing more of them
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Unpredictable. Perhaps out on a long run. Perhaps having a glass of wine and talking politics with friends. Perhaps braving the LES. Perhaps home with a movie or a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was 16, I fancied myself as the creator and editor of an e-zine (it was really just a giant email once a month). It was called Brainspew. I'd recruit "subscribers" in chat rooms for AOL Online and I wrote a lot about Nine Inch Nails. I'm somewhat of an internet pioneer, albeit an angsty one.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like bourbon. You're liberal (and passionate) in your politics. You can handle a feminist (or preferably are one yourself.) You want the most out of this life, and you want to leave the world a little better than how you found it.

I'm looking for someone whose quick wit and curious intellect allow for those conversations in which we may find ourselves lost for hours, yet whose fun and playful sense of humor is always close at hand.
