For the next few weeks I'm trying an OKC experiment! I quit this site a while back because while I was lots of fun and meeting tons of great people, I wasn't meeting the right ones. But I recently had a thought. Out in the world, I rarely just walk up and start talking to random people unless there's at least some acknowledgment of interest (a lingering glance or the like). The online equivalent to this is the Quickmatch or "4/5 Stars" thing. So starting now I'm giving this a shot. If I look interesting, give that little button a click. Who knows? Maybe our virtual eyes will meet...
And now, the actual profile:
Just like this essay, I’m a work in progress. Unlike this essay, I'm hoping that continues for the rest of my life. If I was to describe myself in two(ish) words, it would be "deep-thinking goofball." I’m always trying new things, including sailing, dancing, music (listening and playing), cycling all over the city, learning to shave with a straight-razor, ice skating in Bryant Park, studying all kinds of things, and finding any excuse to dress to the nines. Most recently, I started self-publishing children's books, picked up the didgeridoo, and have a love/hate relationship with the foam roller so many of my running friends do.
Among my proudest (material) possessions are more sportcoats than I can count, six hats in semi-regular rotation (and a few that aren't), three ukuleles, three bicycles, and an adorable shih-tzu who thinks he's a cat.
