My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New Englander/Eastern Seaboarder by upbringing, but now, 20 years in, happily a New Yorker. After many years in Manhattan, I recently decamped to Brooklyn, and am really enjoying the contrast, if not the slightly longer commute. Miss the old Village nabe (esp. the close proximity of so many great jazz clubs), but it's been fun to explore the many interesting enclaves in the County of Kings. Also enjoy getting out of town some weekends, for cultural events, hiking, skiing, flyfishing, and visiting friends and their families beyond the city limits. Looking for a fellow traveler (literally and figuratively), a curious urban adventurer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've worked in the private sector in a range of functional roles, primarily in the investment management and management consulting industries, which I've generally enjoyed. Prior to grad school, I worked in Wash, DC as a Democratic aide/speechwriter on Capitol Hill (not surprisingly, I still follow, and enjoy discussing, politics and current affairs).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Have been told I'm a pretty good listener and fluent conversationalist (could these two be, um, related?). Adept at chatting up strangers. NYT crossword, programming weekends out of town (esp. if it involves dining at quaint pub or inn), political discussions, juggling multiple books. In recent years, I've gotten fairly interested in food and cooking - have this absurdly aspirational cookbook collection - don't ask...if you have even a modicum of interest in cooking, that would be great.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Fairly upbeat personality, maybe? Sometimes people tell me I look like a news reader or a politician...but is that a compliment?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Old Europe, Angkor Wat, Berlin, Tokyo, the Edinburgh Festival. Foreign and indie films. Read a fair amount, esp. current affairs, psychology, and essays/criticism, as well as quality fiction. Just finished Patti Smith's Memoir, Just Kids, which I enjoyed. Curious to pick up Knausgaard's My Struggle next. What else...enjoy theatre, both plays and classic musicals (my grandfather was a Broadway composer and musician). MoMA, BAM, NYCB, Half King bar, book readings, Village Vanguard, flyfishing in the Catskills. The Times, the New Yorker, NPR. Former amateur drummer and pretty omnivorous music person - Pandora (sorry to be so 2011) stations range from Duke Ellington to the Smiths, the Elvises (Presley and Costello) to the Velvet Underground, depends on the mood. Also Beatles, the Doors, Ramones (of course), Radiohead, Miles, Coltrane and Mingus, etc.

Enjoy playing tennis at Prospect Park courts, and watching it at the US Open. Relish winter sports like cross-country/downhill skiing and ice skating. Also enjoy diving, and thinking about doing the next certification level. Other faves: the Strand (any used book store, in fact), raw bars, dim sum and the bakeries in Chinatown, pretty much anything with truffles or truffle oil.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well, more than six, actually:

Hope about the future
Companionship/trusted friends
Music (would be fun to compare desert island selections)
The assumption one gets wiser with age
Something to read on the subway
The change of seasons
Indian, Middle Eastern and Japanese food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
It's a highly unoriginal thought, but I try to be grateful -- for family, close friendships and other blessings in life -- rather than bemoan what might be missing, or paths not taken. Social justice and inequality. On the lighter side, what upcoming exhibits, plays or performances I want to check out. What intriguing recipe to try next. Where to travel next. That I've been remiss in not volunteering more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Varies quite a bit. Perhaps grabbing dinner and maybe a flick, play or live music with friends. In winter, maybe hitting late Fri hours at the Met or Whitney. Sometimes driving to mountains or out to the East End. Home reading a book. In nice weather, I enjoy unwinding from the week by hitting the Park for 3-4 loops on my bike.
