My self-summary
Moved to NYC not too long ago from Cambridge, MA, and am looking to meet new people. I spend long hours researching and writing, which I enjoy, but sometimes I miss my past life doing organizing work, where the fruits of my labor were more tangible. To counteract the effects of being sedentary for large parts of my days, I exercise religiously, do yoga, and get out and about as much as I can. Like to dance whenever possible -- especially Latin, hip hop, reggae, house. Above all, I enjoy down time with close friends and family, and that's been happening on more or less a daily basis of late, which makes me happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching and researching. Lately I've been writing about workplace democracy. Other than, thoroughly enjoying life in NYC and plotting ways to stay here once my post-doc is done next year.
I’m really good at
Word play, calisthenics, relishing good food, adapting to new environments
The first things people usually notice about me
People often say I'm laid back, though I don't always feel that way. I also get comments about my bushy hair, or people just start touching it. Usually I don't mind, but if it's someone I don't know, I do find it creepy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The God of Small Things, A Fine Balance, Invisible Man, The Black Jacobins, Justice Interruptus, Capital, Angela Davis: An Autobiography, Democracy Realized, Envisioning Real Utopias.

Music: Talib Kweli, Asa, Ruben Blades, Jose Gonzalez, Bob Marley, Nitin Sawhney, Joao Gilberto, Nina Simone, Claude Debussy, Erik Satie, Tracy Chapman, The Roots, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Alicia Keys.

Food: Indian, Mexican, Ethiopian, Korean, Italian, Thai (though I'm vegetarian, I take fish sauce in my Pad See Eiw...just isn't the same without).
The six things I could never do without
love...silliness...writing...exercise...spice...maintaining hope that a radically more egalitarian future is possible
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Family, friends. What I'm going to do with my life next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, whatever that might entail.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was nerdy before nerdy was cool.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–44

You should message me if
You laugh easily--and more at yourself than others. You have progressive impulses that you contemplate and act upon. You like being active but also enjoy chilling out. You like to question received gender norms, including the notion that men should always take the initiative :-)
