My self-summary
I don't live in Gowanus. I made the profile awhile ago and I'm not going to pay to change the name. I still like the word.. gowanus. I live in Williamsburg and have heard all the prejudice about it, believe it if you want. It's alright, I like the southside and the JMZ.

I am a preservationist. I work mostly with oral histories from the labor movement or video art from New York downtown art scene from the 60s to the 90s and gay news, a lot of gay news. So I save the forgotten dreams of others. Perform as a storyteller occasionally all over the city. I'm also teaching myself the guitar, I am terrible but it's fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing and telling, I should do some more showing.
I’m really good at
Puzzles and I make good pesto. I am also a pretty understanding. Oh, and trivia. I'm really good at trivia. And scrabble, too good for some.

My accent or my hair or that I am tall

I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Time travel
- cheese (fontina is my favorite)
- my book, I'm 13,000 words. That's progress
- all the stuff I'll never know but would like to learn about
- the derivation and etymology of phrases
- the evil that lurks in the hearts of men
- the prefect date for a cinephilia, I can't tell because someone will steal it, but it's pretty awesome (and no, it's not dinner and a movie.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Cleaning my bathroom. Ladies like clean bathrooms, right?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I only read Ulysses to impress a girl. She never even noticed. Story of my life. One of my earliest memories is of my mother teaching me another language when I was a child (5ish), but now I pretend not to know it because I'm ashamed that I don't understand it as well as should.

I'm attracted to woman who can expand my horizons, who can show me a new world underneath or above or parallel to one I live in. Basically, I looking for a female version of Aladdin. I'm also enticed by polyglots. And friendly people of all sorts. I'm sad this site doesn't do penpals anymore.
