I'm a New Yorker turned Parisian, I am a graduate student studying
philosophy, I enjoy reading/writing, cooking/eating, football,
running, art, cinema, music, and surely other things too. I have
high standards and so should you. I am pretty easy going and
accepting, but I can't deal with irritation, boredom, or
What I’m doing with my life
Working towards my Phd, trying to become a philosophy professor,
writer, critic, etc. Part time tour guide. Full time snark.
I’m really good at
Identifying songs after only a few seconds, twirling pens, cooking
without recipes, kvetching, masking my true feeling behind my
social chameleon skin, recalling lyrics from 90s rap songs,
whistling, arguing about stuff and things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall and skinny. Big brown eyes and hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Infinite Jest. Being and Time. Jacques le fataliste. Nadja. Les
chants de Maldoror. Les Fleurs du mal. Divagations. Portnoy's
Chinatown. Pulp Fiction. Vertigo. The Royal Tennenbaums. Une Femme
est une femme. My Dinner With Andre.
The Wire. Community. Mad Men. Arrested Development. Le Grand
Soulwax. LCD Soundsystem. Jay-Z. Pavement. Modest Mouse.
(If you don't know which ones are books, movies, and tv shows,
that's probably a sign!)
Food? I like good food. All of it. Especially tacos and sushi and
good coffee. Though, despite my american roots, I viscerally
dislike peanut butter, cream cheese. Go figure.
The six things I could never do without
Headphones, coffee, a pen, books, Coca cola in glass bottles, and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about thinking. I'm trying to make a
career out of it, in fact.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical answer: there is no typical Friday night. Maybe I'm out
with friends eating, drinking, or dancing. Maybe I'm at home
reading or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Internet, you'll have to try harder than that to get me to give up
my secrets. I try to leave as small a digital footprint as I can.
How that lines up with me being on OKC, I don't know...
You should message me if
I've found that this site basically digitally reduplicates all the
awkward things about dating that drove most of us here in the first
place. Which sort of defeats the purpose. If you think we might get
along, you should just say so. Don't just wait for me to send you a
message if you want to talk to me, take the initiative. I am trying
to do the same.
Also, if it looks like I am holding back on details, it is because
I am. The rest, we'll talk about in person.
