Chicago is the omphalos of my American existence, so it's great to be back! I was born here and moved to the Middle East as a kid, where I remember the sandstorms, tribalism, and sad dearth of good music... as well as the British schooling. After a sojourn in the UK proper, I came back for college, medical school and a PhD in the humanities, all in the Northeast. I've been spearfishing in exotic locales, like running at 2am in a blizzard ("pulling a Santa"), just did my first marathon, and enjoy spontaneous road-trips in the company of friends.
I'm looking for sophisticated, light-hearted, and passionate people to share in the fun!
I do a lot of reading: old school stuff like Nabokov, Joyce, Steinbeck, and also non-fiction, especially in the areas of Near Eastern history and European social thought. Recently, The Picture of Dorian Gray.
The usual litany: The Wire, Tudors, Scrubs, House, How I Met Your Mother, Boston Legal, all the Law and Order iterations.
Anything made of mangoes or chocolate, Italian (Tuscany!), Korean (beef bulgogi, bibimbap), Indian (biryani, vindaloo), fusion French cuisine.
Chris Rock, Chelsea Handler, Louis CK, Dave Chappelle and Russell Peters. Any kind of hard hitting social commentary.
All over the place, from bands like MGMT, Passion Pit and Breaking Benjamin, to jazz, trance, Island reggae (Mike Love) or classics like 96 degrees. Used to like early Akon (Locked Up) before it all became about b*tches and bling.
