Let's play word association. I'll start.
Kind, funny, silly, curious about this world, quirky, analytical,
debatey, current event hungry, anxious, adventurous, mac savvy,
type b, intellectual on superficial/silly topics, big hearted,
small ego'd, a creator of things you can't hold. I'm jewish by
heritage but an atheist by DNA.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Editing reality tv shows. And somehow loving it. I do make bad
television and like many other bright progressive people in my
world, I don't watch any of it. I don't even have cable. For me, my
work is not about the final product. It's about looking at the
world in puzzle pieces, collaging words and glances and music and
pauses to make a thing that wasn't there. It's a fun, mentally
challenging creative gig that holds my focus fiercely.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing you may notice is that I'm animated. But a lot of
it will be nerves. My gesticulating subsides in the suds of my
first beer, and if it doesn't, it might just mean I'm really taken

Comedy, listening to it watch it, finding it absorbing it.
Ditto for music.
I like my films arty and edgy, but CGI can be an artform to

The six things I could never do without

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopeful for something magical and unexpected.
I put a lot of pressure on weekends.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You’re quirky, silly, observant, funny, openminded and maybe a
little cynical. Have a spoonful of those traits, and I will cherish
all the other idiosyncrasies that weave around them. You find
reasonable joy in a conversation with a stranger and that joy is
enhanced with a drink in your hand. When you have the freedom to
roam a party you gracefully slide away have new encounters and
equally gracefully, find me again. You’re comfortable enough with
your liberal convictions and secure enough in mine that you can
make/entertain an insensitive or crude observation that would
really seem to defy them. Say it because it’s funny in the moment,
in this context, coming out of your cute mouth and I’ll get it. I
wont judge. You like to judge. But you would never say anything
hurtful to someone’s face. You didn't emerge from a meticulous germ
free bubble because I didnt either. Love or at least be very open
to accepting New York (be it city or suburb) as your forever home.
Prefer smaller quirkier character films to the ones with soaring
soundtracks and happy endings because they’re much more fun to
dissect over dinner. Prefer music that’s pretty to music that’s
evil. Prefer hearing it live to electronic and we will have very
compatible nightlives. And dance with me.
I hope by pontificating on the traits that strike me as important
in this moment, I don’t come off as particularly demanding, because
that would just be false advertising. I’m very interested in the
things that make us different, I’m a chill, understanding pushover,
and although I love being out around people, Im also awkward and at
at times anxious and I will be comforted to find out you have some
faults too :)
Hey, if you're intrigued but can't think of anything to say, give
me a rating so I know you're out there. I'll start.
