My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm normal, in an abnormal sense. My personality is like cayenne pepper: it's distinct, powerful and toothless people in the south love it. I've been told by 99% of my long term friends that I should be a stand up comedian, which is odd, cause I assumed they were laughing AT me.

All in all, I'm awesome. I'm a good listener, I'm so fun to bring to weddings, and I've got a common blood type, so you may luck out and get a kidney from me someday.

Above all else, I'm fun.

Ugh, OKCupid wants more talk out of me. So, how about I talk about what I'm looking for.

I want a partner, in the truest sense of the term; someone with whom I can share everything, whether it be experiential or emotional. Actually, I want a queen. A queen to my king. Someone to help me rule over my vast empire, even if that empire is the living room. Someone smart and funny. Geekiness is adorable.

I want someone with whom the attraction is so palpable, whereas, for example, we'd be in a group of friends and have to excuse ourselves occasionally so I might throw you up against a wall to make out. I've had that before and it is singularly amazing.

I have begun a physical transformation (Keto Diet rules!), and I will be sharing it as it progresses. I'm happy to report that I'm already seeing results drastic enough as to require me changing the "My Details" section. I plan to be in the best shape of my life within the next 18 months. Pretty bold statement to make to the masses, and I expect you to keep me to my word.

Anywho, I hope this has been enough rambling so that my profile makes it to 1,000 words so I can get past 85% on my profile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm the CEO and cofounder of a technology startup here in NYC. It's an amazing journey, but I'm not going to lie: it consumes a lot of my time. But as the great philosopher Christopher George Latore Wallace said, "Mo money, mo problems."

I'm also a culinary school trained chef, but no longer in the kitchen. However, I still cook regularly and love throwing dinner parties.

And I also take improv classes at Upright Citizen's Brigade.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fucking up movie quotes. Ruining moments. Getting injured.

Cooking. Understanding. Talking and listening. I have immaculate directional sense. I'm pretty smart.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The knife.

Not cause I'm a killer, because I'm a chef. Gosh.

Other than that, my smile, my laugh. Maybe my wit and sarcasm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite Books: I'm all about non-fiction. I love to learn. I like stories about things that have happened, or theories on things that are currently happening. What have I read recently? Anthony Bourdain's books, Reza Aslan's books, the newest Hawking book.

Favorite Movies: Seriously? I think I have like 10,000 movies in my collection. I like many, MANY movies. I DON'T like gore films. I know, I know. It's just that no matter what happens, I'm not scared or grossed out. In fact, the only movie that ever grossed me out was The Fly in 1986. You know, with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. The make up and latex work in that film was GREAT. And the psychological aspect of the film, well. It's still one of the only movies to scare me.

I tend to lean towards more cerebral films. I like movies (and anything) that makes me think. I'm also a sucker for a romantic film. I love romance flicks, ok? Deep inside we all want love, and when people find it on film, it makes me feel good and keeps that hope alive that I might find it someday too.

Favorite Music: I like music. I like music created with instruments, something that requires a level of talent and blows you away when it is performed live for you. So, no, I'm not a fan of rap music, or any of the digital genres (techno, dance, trance, whatever the *&^% it's called.) I was a guitarist/bassist for like 10 years of my life playing heavy metal, so I enjoy all forms of heavy music. But again, like romantic movies, my gayness kicks in and I enjoy many singer/songwriters and indie artists.

Favorite Food: You've gotta be shitting me. I'm a chef. We cannot legally answer this question or we lose our fluffy hat. I love SOOOO many things. BUT to make this fun, let me list 5 things that I personally think everyone should taste before they die:

1) Black Truffle - winter/summer doesn't matter. Just shave some nice pieces on something creamy.
2) An oyster, preferably just pulled from the water. (A perk of living 20 minutes from Oyster Bay.)
3) Grass fed beef. Not grass finished, wholly fed. Totally different than any beef you've ever eaten, unless you've eaten, well, grass fed beef. (Vegetarians, it's not that I don't respect your choice.... Actually, yes, I don't respect your choice. Humans are omnivores (please no arguing), and philosophically I think people should never give up anything entirely. Instead of being a vegetarian, try being a normal person who doesn't feel like eating meat today. I hate that being a "vegetarian" has become an identity to people. Touchy subject to my chef heart, sorry.)
4) A Fig. Picked fresh from the tree.
5) Raw Milk. Impossible to get in America unless you have a cow. It's unpasteurized. The flavor is SO much different than what you get at the grocery store. And raw milk cheeses are a close second. (NOTE: When in Los Angeles, I saw raw milk for sale in certain stores. Not sure if it's a local thing or all of California, but kudos! East coast should catch up!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Justin Beiber, Shakeweights, Chlamydia, testicular razor burn, emo haircuts and clamato juice.

What? OH, it's six things I CAN'T do without. My bad. Then my answer is David Hasselhoff times 6.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
EBITDA.
The psychology of humanity.
What it would be like to be someone totally different.
Multiverse theory.
What is the marijuana budget for the writer's room at Aqua Teen Hunger Force? (I'm guessing at least $50,000 monthly.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies. I was taking improv at UCB on Fridays, and working. But I'm soooooo open to going out on Friday. With you. Yes, you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's money in the banana stand....

I love the feeling of my fingers in your hair.

I make tons of spelling mistakes. Not because I don't know how to spell, but more so because I think faster than I type. (But I will use a spell check every time.)

I am a member of Mensa.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Look, people. I'm just like you. I want to meet someone obscenely cool with whom I can spend time, go places, show off to my friends and relatives, and occasionally bang. I'm not a creeper, or a stalker. I will probably pay for dinner, if not cook and serve it.

With that being said, take a chance and email me. I will not make you cry, I promise, and I guarantee you, we'll have fun times.
