Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a joker, sports fan, finance professional, an intellectually
curious individual and so much more. I’m all about the journey in
life and not the destination. I like to learn new things and meet
new people. My one true love who continuously breaks my heart into
little pieces is the New York Knicks. We break-up each year around
April, sometimes May if things are going well and we make the
playoffs, but eventually each spring she finds a new way to break
my heart. I’m also a really big fan of the Giants, Yankees,
Rangers, and US Men’s National soccer team. World Cup 2014…enough
On the more serious side of life I love to stay abreast of two
things: Business and Politics. I like to stay current with business
news because it is relevant to my day to day job. As for the
politics what can I say I am a political junkie. For better or
worse business and politics move the world and I like to know what
is going on. That’s why the only required reading I have each week
is the current copy of the Economist.
Alright if you didn’t fall asleep during that last paragraph let’s
continue. I like running and playing basketball and pretty much
playing every other sport. Whatever can get the blood flowing. I’ve
never gone skiing so I am definitely excited to try that out come
I love beer, whiskey, and open-minded people. I like going into the
city and getting lost and finding cool spots by chance. I dislike
close-minded people, pretentiousness and boredom.
Anything else you’d like to know feel free to ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work in NYC for a private equity firm that invests in
real estate. I have to admit the industry is interesting and
complex, and that’s what makes the job fun. On the negative side
the hours are a major drag. I've been in the industry for 6 years
and I’m at a point in my life where going to graduate school to
make the next career step is a serious option. I’m cautiously
ambitious. I say cautiously because I don’t want to become a robot
who just takes one step after another and doesn't enjoy the here
and the now. Hence why I said I’m all about the journey and not the
In my spare time I like to travel. I have to admit I have not done
as much of it as I would like lately, but I’m on a mission to make
up for lost time. So if traveling is something you like to do I
could use a partner in crime.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I’m really good at being random. Don’t know if that is a good thing
or a bad thing so I will let you decide.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You tell me…somehow it’s not something I can answer. Not like I go
around to my friends and say, “hey guys what’s the first thing you
noticed about me?” lol
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Since this answer can be really long I’ll give you the top 5 of
Books: I’ll give you authors rather than books….Malcolm Gladwell,
Stieg Larsson, John Grisham, Kurt Vonnegut, and Sir Conan
Movies: Terminator 2, Blackhawk Down, Aladdin (yea laugh at me all
you want, but you know Aladdin and Abu were hot in the streets in
the 90’s) Old School, and all sorts of Documentaries (really a
sucker for history)
Shows: The Wire (I really believe this to be the best show ever
made), Entourage, Bill Maher, A Spacetime Odyssey (this one is
new….don’t knock it til you try it), BBC’s version of Sherlock
Music: Everything and anything. Seriously my tastes run from
Florence and the Machine to Phillip Glass (classical music) and
everything in between…hip hop, rock, Spanish, indie bands,
international music of which I don’t understand the words, but love
the beat….etc etc
Food: French Toast, Filet Mignon, Paella, Chocolate Milk (lol), and
a great ham, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Copy of this week’s Economist
Beer and Steak
Family & Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where will I be in 5 years and who will be around
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical Friday night. I might meet up with friends at a
local bar, go to a cigar and whiskey bar (if the work week has been
stressful), stay in and catch a movie, or go out and play
I’m pretty easy going so I’ll usually just wait to see what my
group of friends is doing and then go with the flow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’ll tell you in person. Much more fun that way.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you’ve ever wanted to catch a dinner and a show in the city. Or
sit down in a non-descript bar and have a stimulating conversation
about current events. Or if you just want to accompany me to
Madison Square Garden to catch the Knicks in their latest heart
