My self-summary
Creative by day.
Creator by night.
Boxer in training 3-4 days a week.
World appreciator and explorer 24-7.

I like my steak rare, my Bourbon neat, my jeans slim and my arts ironic.

I love getting my head scratched. So do puppies and kittens. Therefore, I'm adorable.

Looking for a woman who would love to share a bottle of wine (or bourbon), catch a cab (or subway) and make a trip to the end of the world and back, all in one night.
What I’m doing with my life
By day, I'm a senior copywriter at an ad agency. I'd never so much as taken a marketing class before I ambled into this career, but let's let that be our little secret. I love my job, but work is work, and life is life, and I keep the two separate whenever possible.

By night, I love finding new outlets for my creativity and different ways to express myself, however, this leads to a lot of ideas and even more unfinished projects. Some might say I have artistic ADD. Others might say I have actual ADD.

I started training as a boxer because lifting weights and running on treadmills never quite cut it for me. My mother seriously regrets ever introducing me to the Rocky saga at a very young age.

My poetry is pretty damn good and I can prove it. I'm also pretty nifty with a DSLR, maybe even more so than with a pen.
I’m really good at
Making babies laugh on the subway, reducing my thoughts to 140 characters, making friends with cab drivers, finding ticklish spots, identifying cloud animals, matching my tie to my socks, reading poker faces, trivia night.
The first things people usually notice about me
I find myself in a lot of conversations about beards. I don't mind this at all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Don Delillo, Kurt Vonnegut, Haruki Murakami, Franz Kafka, T.S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, Ernest Hemingway, Ken Kesey, Allen Ginsberg, Cormac Macarthy. Always looking to branch out.

Movies: Rocky, Inception, all of the Christopher Nolan Batmans, The Departed, Forrest Gump, Snatch, Goodfellas, and anything by Tarantino or Wes Anderson. Joel and Ethan Coen are geniuses and anything they touch is gold.

TV: Reruns of Community, 30 Rock and Arrested Development soothe the soul. LOST, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Sopranos and The Wire give me goosebumps. I take my TV very seriously, but now that I don't actually have TV, I'll settle for what's on NetFlix or HBO Go.

Music: What day of the week is it? But seriously, I'd have to fill out this section once a month if I wanted to keep it accurate.
The six things I could never do without
My Moleskin sketchbook, Spotify, my green Doc Martens, The Rocky soundtrack, bourbon, my camera.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I would direct the current scene in my adapted memoir.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a celebratory feast with the people I love, half hour food coma, and then off to the next adventure.

But there's nothing wrong with the occasional night in with a good movie and good company. Emphasis on good company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've had no less than three actual near death experiences. No trauma. Just a few stories to share.
You should message me if
You have a good heart, good fashion sense and a big smile.

Artistic tendencies and the ability to drink whiskey are definitely a plus, but I normally find those two go hand-in-hand.
