My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Grew up in Atlanta, studied Chemistry, worked in politics, traveled for a bit in South America, moved to Tucson, AZ, started cooking, moved to Brooklyn.

I love getting outdoors as much as I can. Running, hiking, biking, rafting, skiing, kayaking, etc. I especially love exploring the city on my bike. I'm also fond of documentaries, movies, going to concerts, playing RISK (yep) and other board games, classic cocktails, cigars (no, really, a lot), etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm recently completed my Master of Urban Planning, particularly interested transportation planning and public participation (and tons of other geeky stuff).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, listening, over-analyzing, singing, being affectionate, turning almost any conversation into one about politics/policy, having an impressive knowledge of mostly useless information.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Other than my beard and trademark hat, I'm not really sure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Favorite? Hmm...Well, I like these books: The End of Faith by Sam Harris, Traffic by Tom Vanderbilt, The Death of the Liberal Class by Chris Hedges, anything philosophy or science related.

I also love The Big Lebowski, any Wes Anderson film (especially Rushmore and Life Aquatic), Snatch, Seven, any Hitchcock film (especially Rear Window), the Man who Shot Liberty Valance, It's a Wonderful Life, Dune (the original), Wristcutters, 500 Days of Summer, O Brother Where Art Thou, anything written by Charlie Kaufman, Half Nelson, almost anything Kubrick and so on....

Shows: Daily Show, Colbert Report, Family Guy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, House of Cards, Arrested Development, South Park, Louie, GoT, Birthday Boys, other things online.

Music: LCD Soundsystem, Modest Mouse, M83, Grizzly Bear, Decemberists, Wilco, The Whitest Kid Alive, Black Keys, Crystal Castles, Ralph Stanley, The Head and the Heart, Portugal The Man, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Future Islands (check em out if you haven't) ... I'll add more later

Food: Well, I was cook, so that should help paint a picture of how much I love food. Amongst my favorites: Pho, Ramen (especially the Kimchi Pork at Chuko), Tacos of almost any variety, sushi, cheeses of almost any variety, most offal, proper southern barbeque, biscuits and gravy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sharing some drinks with folks, at some nonsensenyc event, Netflix marathon? Meeting up with you, right?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have an appetite for adventure, in myriad ways.

You're an independent, strong-willed type.

You're going to be ok with my ranting about various topics, but particularly my less than generous views on faith and religion. You don't need to agree with me, but yeah, I'll definitely share my criticism.

You must be affectionate, and receptive to affection. This is simply the way I relate to people.

You read something that piques your attention, and want to grab a drink or a bite.

Don't hesitate to reach out!
