My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the theatre. My parents ran a summer-stock my entire life, and I did around ten plays a year until I was in my mid twenties. I ran the snack bar at age eleven, and ran the paint shop at seventeen, all while being the resident kid for any shows that needed a child on stage. I was an astonishingly bad actor as a child. Like, kid from The Phantom Menace quality. I got pretty good eventually, but thinking about myself in Camelot still makes me feel a bit ill.

After college, I simply stopped acting for a multitude of reasons better discussed outside of a dating website intro section. I've since been a freelance scenic artist, an inbound sales rep for Dell, a temp, a bartender, a carpenter, a receptionist, and several other short lived things. Currently I work for a high end Italian restaurant as a waiter/bartender/manager. I like my job quite a bit, but don't generally look to it for self-fulfillment.

I love to cook. I spend at least one day a week making something elaborate from scratch. It doesn't always end well. That's what delivery is for.

For fun, I generally do things with friends. I have the good fortune to know a lot of smart, fun, and talented people. Please don't tell any of them I said that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, taking random classes, learning about anything that strikes my fancy, and spending the maximum amount of time I can surrounded by people I love. I recently finished a round of UCB classes, and I loved them.

I really try to learn 5-10 things every day. Not for any particular reason, I just want to understand everything. EVERYTHING. Part of my nature is the need to constantly find out how things work. I consequently don't like watching illusionists.

Professionally, I'm steadily helping my restaurant expand its business. I'm proud to say that the business has more than tripled its revenue while I've been there. I do anything they need me to do, which means I wear a lot of different hats.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A lot of things, but I hate having to write this kinda stuff down. Maybe it's midwestern modesty, but it always feels so narcissistic claiming I'm good at this or that. Lets just say I'm a good reader.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If the subway system is any indicator, I really look like I know how to get wherever the tourists want to go.

If I took a poll though, I think most people notice my sense of humor and my voice first. I sound like I should be doing radio, from what I've been told. The defining three traits according to my friends are my intelligence, my wit, and my kindness. I question their judgement.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Song of Ice and Fire, Infinite Jest, anything by Orwell or Vonnegut, Arrested Development, Archer, Dr. Who, It's Always Sunny, SVU, House, The Princess Bride, Unforgiven, Amélie, Quentin Tarantino movies, Decemberists, Soul Coughing, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Pink Floyd, Avett Brothers, and pretty much any food that is prepared well. I'm pretty sure I could sit forever thinking up more.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Humor
2) Honesty
3) Coffee
4) Cooking
5) Cheese
6) Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Good lord, that's an open ended question. Truth be told, I think a lot about the true nature of things. That sounds pretentious, but I am always drawn to finding the truth beneath the veneer. I spend way too much time trying to reason out the nature of reality. Consequently, I read a lot of layman science books and philosophical history.

Don't worry, I don't talk about this stuff in polite conversation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Unfortunately.

If not, hanging out with friends. Usually playing some type of card/board game, and drinking an irresponsible amount of whiskey.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm loyal and empathetic to my own detriment.

I'm also an absolutely terrible speller. Four years of AP English and I can never remember how to spell anything. I can't even remember the spellings of things later in the day after looking it up. If auto-correct and Google didn't exist, my writing would have the spelling mistakes of a fifth grader.
