My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a passionate and dedicated friend. I don't do anything halfway, and that comes across in my relationships with my friends and family, as well as in my professional life.

After a few years away, I'm returning to my native Manhattan with the desire to soak up all it has to offer. I'm an outgoing, positive guy who is always up for a new adventure.

It's a little strange to try to summarize myself in this box. I consider myself a gentleman and 100% honest. Ask me anything, and you will always receive the truth.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Personally, I'm having fun and trying to make the world a better place -- if only through my interactions with both friends and strangers every day. I spend a lot of time meditating while wandering the streets and parks of Manhattan. Thirty years in this town, and it still energizes me.

Professionally, I've got an educational technology start-up that's doing very well. After developing and editing hundreds of children's books (and writing 12 myself), I've moved into the digital world -- and I'm creating tablet-based publications for kids. I'm devoting my career to inspiring young readers.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people smile, writing long-winded but heartfelt emails, and ensuring that my friends know I've got their back. I have the ability to tap into my energy reserves and stay up really, really late. (Is that a talent?)

I'm also very consistent about my use of the Oxford comma.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, I'd guess. I often realize that I'm smiling for no apparent reason, as if my "face at rest" is with a smile. There is simply much to be joyful for...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My tastes are all over the place.

Music: I have no idea where to begin, so I'll just pick a letter at random and list some of my favorites: (B).
Bob Dylan, Beastie Boys, Ben Gibbard, Bob Marley, Belle and Sebastian, the Beatles, the Band, Bill Frisell, Bill Callahan, Billy Bragg & Wilco, Bjork, the Black Crowes, Blind Melon, Bon Iver, Booker T, Billie Holliday, Brett Dennon, Bright Eyes, Built to Spill, Buddy Holly, B.I.G. (the Notorious) <-- okay, that last one was kind of cheating.

My first concert was Paul Simon, and I still adore him. I've probably been to about 1,000 shows in my life.

Movies: Yeah, I'm one of those guys who loves Wes Anderson movies. Also most films by Christopher Guest, the Coen Brothers or Woody Allen. Basically, I love anything with heart or wit; not usually into shoot-em-up action flicks. Ten years later, I still think about Lost in Translation.

Food: Every day I reminded to be grateful to be back in NYC. Even a slice of pizza on the run tastes better here. I could probably eat sushi for every meal. Big fan of all the healthy options this town has to offer, and I'll never say no to Thai, Indian, or Italian.

Books: Even thinking about Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls gives me goosebumps still. But other than Ernest, I read a lot of nonfiction -- Dylan's Chronicles, The Power Broker, Moneyball, Into Thin Air & Into the Wild, and most everything by Malcolm Gladwell and Bill Bryson. And FWIW Dr. Seuss's "Oh! The Places You'll Go!" is brilliant. It really is.

Shows: Don't watch too much TV now, but favorite shows in the past have included Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development, Six Feet Under, Parks n Rec, 30 Rock, Firefly, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert, or any well-made science show on the Discovery channel
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Internet (uncreative, perhaps, but still true)
The support of my amazing friends and family
An alarm clock or some other means of getting up
A constant flood of new music to discover
My iPhone/iPad charger

That's a pretty random list, huh? It's just the first six things that came to my mind; if I start editing, I'll never be happy with this list. Clearly not in order of importance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to explain the next big news story in a way that kids will understand (for work)
Our planet's fragile environment and what I can do to help protect it
How to balance everything that life has to offer
What album to put on next
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Catching up with another old friend in NYC, in some new neighborhood or checking out some wild event together.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't lie. My face gets all twisted if I try, and I get a bit physically sick if I'm untrue. Makes me a crappy poker player but a good friend.

And also: I *did* list Blind Melon in my list of favorite music. That was not a typo.
