My self-summary
Looking for a travel partner to explore the world.
What I’m doing with my life
Eating at five-star restaurants in a one-star fashion.
I’m really good at
Making it through the subway doors right before they close in my face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I prefer film. But hand me a book with a focus exposition of how our world and cuture came to be, like Salt, Freakonomics, Demon Haunted World, The Selfish Gene, or Sex at Dawn, and I'm right at home.

Movies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Inglourious Basterds, Oldboy, Spirited Away, Waking Life, The Fountain, Ex Machina, V for Vendetta, Garden State, The Life Aquatic, Children of Men, Moneyball, The Social Network, The Ides of March, Shame, The Fall, Senna, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, C'était un Rendezvous, The Skin I Live In, Stranger than Fiction

TV: Off the Air, Bojack Horseman, Master of None, The Mind of a Chef, Rick and Morty, Breaking Bad, Top Gear, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones.

Music: Eclectic. Generally, I'm listening to: Sekuoia, Fly Russia, Cashmere Cat, Moa Pillar, Ratatat, Ta-Ku, Chance the Rapper, Childish Gambino, Abdominal, Cinematic Orchestra, Drake, Weeknd, Justice, Kygo, Kendrick, Sigur Ros, and Shad.

Food: Honestly, everything. I'm fairly adventurous eater. Right now, I'm on a tear to find Toronto's best ramen after visiting Japan and having a religious experience with a bowl of Tonkotsu. (So far, Sansotei is the hands-down winner. Any other suggestions?)

One-half of me is Persian, and I will plow through a plate of Ghormeh Sabzi at a moment's notice. It is my comfort food.
The six things I could never do without
- Domestic lagers. Ice cold, on the patio, in the summertime.
- Coconut-based foods. (Desserts, drinks, pastries... you name it.)
- Boardgame nights playing Settlers, Dominion, and King of Tokyo.
- The Maillard Reaction
- Reddit. Hopelessly addicted.
- Breathtaking views from tall buildings.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Dinosaurs, jetpacks, dinosaurs wearing jetpacks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think The OC was a quality piece of television.
You should message me if
You're happy with how you view yourself as a person. I'm not looking for a fixer-upper.

You've read Charles Warnke's "You Should Date an Illiterate Girl" and it resonated with you.

With very rare exception, I will ignore/delete any opener message that just says "hey" or asks me how my day is going. I've intentionally put a bunch of conversation hooks in my profile for people to latch onto — it shouldn't be that hard to find something to start with. :)
