My self-summary
Born in the New York area, moved to Massachusetts for college, back here after school, then back up to Massachusetts for a job, then back to New York. My life is the Chinatown bus. :)

I'm here hoping to find someone real. I value warmth, intelligence, curiosity, and a sense of humor. Or at least enough of a sense of humor that you'll put up with my jokes. (According to OKCupid's 3-variable funny test, I desire to see more testicles on fire. I'm quite intrigued by their use of the word "more", which would seem to indicate a steady, albeit insufficient stream of testicles in my daily humor diet.)

If you share some of my interests, below, great! And if not, let's learn from each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Software consultant. If you wanna know more about this, just ask. In the meantime, I think this pretty much sums it up:

In my personal life, I love expanding my horizons and continuously growing. I've always lived in the northeast, but I've traveled a lot in my life. Been to 47 states and 20 countries. One of my bucket list goals is to visit all the US national parks and hopefully get a good hike out of each one. Another is earning my private pilot's certificate, which I'm doing right now. I am a certified open water SCUBA diver. One of these days, I'd love to learn another language. On any normal weekend day, you'll find me having dinner with friends (either out or cooking for them), or maybe at Lincoln Center or Carnegie Hall. If all else fails, I love a good night in with the TV.
I’m really good at
Earning frequent flier miles.
Making people feel appreciated.
This. (I also have perfect pitch. Both make me equally fun at parties. :) )
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
I'm a non-fiction kinda guy, and I've f*cking loved science even before I F*cking Love Science. Two of my favorite authors are particle physicist/cosmologist Lawrence Krauss and string theorist Brian Greene. (I also love Neil deGrasse Tyson, but I've never read any of his books. I just listen to his podcast.)

Movies:
I love dramas, documentaries, action movies, and comedies but the ones on my shelf are usually action or really quotable comedies because of their rewatch value:
Airplane!, The American President, Back to the Future, The Bourne Identity, Top Secret! (Okay, "The American President" is neither, but it's Aaron Sorkin, so it's awesome.)

Shows:
The Big Bang Theory. Sherlock and Elementary (I've read a few articles saying that Elementary is better, but at least for now, I'm leaning toward Sherlock). I will probably never make it through Breaking Bad, but it's great.
I like food shows but I think Food Network has gone way downhill in the past few years. Now that I live in Time Warner Cable territory, I watch Cooking Channel, which is kinda like old-school Food Network. Plus America's Test Kitchen and Lidia.
Some of my favorite shows in the past have been Battlestar Galactica, Family Guy, Firefly, and The West Wing.

Music:
I mostly listen to classical music. Here are some favorite pieces: Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3, Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, Mahler's Symphony No. 3.
For a while, I had a minor obsession with the musical, Wicked. But having recently seen The Book of Mormon, it's going to be a long time 'til I get that music out of my head. Popular music-wise, I also like a lot of stuff from the '90s and early '00s.

Food:
I'm a foodie, and try to be open-minded. I will try most things, with the understanding that you don't have to like everything you try, but you'll also never expand your horizons without trying new things. Some of my favorite foods include dan dan noodles (I need to try these some day), Brazilian rodizio, halo-halo, passionfruit and mangoes and most things with passionfruit or mangoes in them, bubble tea (especially taro-flavored), pumpkin-flavored things (except, oddly, pumpkin pie), and oysters. Regardless of the diverse set of cultures that my food interests draw upon, there are no substitutes for pizza and Carvel ice cream cake.

Comedians:
I break for Jim Jefferies, Louis CK, and Patton Oswalt.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How small we are in the universe.
Sustainability.
What's for dinner. :)
