Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Brand new to NYC. Again. Seattle for the two years before that. I
still need to de-PNW this profile.
I'm not a "regular guy," as so many here seem to claim. I'm too
curious about everything around me to be regular. I laugh too
easily to be regular (I can be kind of goofy, but I'm ok with
I'm very driven, and mostly have my stuff together. Mostly. I'm
still slowly replacing all my Ikea furniture with better things. As
much as I love my career, I love my own time more. Especially
travel. What's better than being lost in a new city or on a beach
with a book?
I love wearing suits and wish Seattle gave me more opportunities to
I'm also extremely amused by the "not all men" meme. Or, rather,
the response from most men. I don't get all the privilege
I/ENTP/J. Any time I've been tested, I fall right in the middle of
those 4. I also don't put much stock in these.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do corporate strategy.
I'm an AVP at a major beauty company (don't judge too hard - it's a
new title and I'm pretty proud.) Before that I worked in fashion,
and before that I was in video games. I can talk endlessly about
all three subjects. It's an addiction
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think everything, depending on the day.
I'm excellent at school. I've got degrees in English, Computer
Science, Law and Business. My most recent degree is technically in
strategy and decision sciences. This means I'm amazing at throwing
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I dress well. Usually. I feel like how you dress is often a
consideration for others.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a ton. TV and movies, a bit less so. Honestly, I don't think
that lists of books and movies define chemistry - I've had great
relationships with people I don't overlap enormously with as far as
taste. What's important is that you like the right kinds of things
I will say, though, bonus points if you dislike Chuck Palahniuk,
who is like the Tucker Max of fiction (though Tucker probably
already wears that crown.)
I do think Archer is the funniest show in years. I also watch
Community, Justified, GoT, Fargo, Orphan Black, Party Down - all
the internet nerd approved shows.
Music-wise, I listened to a ton of synth as a child, metal as a
high schooler, hardcore in my late teens and early 20s, and I'm
back to synth. Cold Cave, Ladyhawke, EMA, etc.
I just finished The Handmaid's Tale. That didn't feel 30 years old.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3) Sunshine. Lots and lots of sunshine.
4) Iced Tea
5) Fun. I can have it anywhere. It really depends a lot of #1 up
6) You. See what I did there? Suave, wasn't it? Like Rico Suave
suave. Rico.... suave...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. As I mentioned, I enjoy figuring out how things work.
It used to be more mechanical, but these days I like watching a
business and trying to figure out their P&L and operating
model. It's more entertaining than you'd expect.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Being new in town and not knowing anyone, I'm either sitting at a
bar in a restaurant eating dinner and watching the crowd, or I'm
Otherwise, I'd always be at a restaurant with a group of friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk to my parents like 4 times a week. Is that weird? I call
them on my walk home from work and regale them with amazing stories
about the West Coast. They're fascinated by Cars2Go!
Lastly, having come from the sunglasses world, I'd say one of the
biggest turn-offs for me, other than not reading, is a pair of
And, c'mon people, put an answer here! "Heehee, I wouldn't admit
that on the internet" isn't a valid answer to "what's the most
private thing you're willing to admit on the internet?"

from Lars Von Trier
