My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Not easy to make a self summary - but I am a pretty much normal but somewhat eccentric foody/designer/photographer who likes to enjoy life as best as possible preferably with some awesome people around. I work really hard, but also party/relax just as hard when the time comes.

Been working/living in manhattan (did a stint of 1yr in Queens) for 5 years as of this Sept. Love every second of it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Used to run my own design business for a few years - Now I am fulltime doing the same thing due to a good offer for employment. Someday I'll go back to that however, don't plan to be on the 9-5 plan for too long.

Went to school in the city for photography, didn't end up panning out too well (the market for that sucks these days...). Internet/design was more enticing. Plan to launch a startup within the next couple of years.

Otherwise I am doing independent projects and cooking -alot-. Have cooked since I was much younger and can usually be found at some grocery store wandering around looking for something tasty to cook. Or out eating somewhere.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking - not kidding on that. Your welcome to test me on that one too. I make a killer beef Wellington.

In the past few years I have gotten really good at consulting and delivering web & design projects. Still do freelance jobs after work, if you need a website or a printed catalog - I'm your guy.

Paid a lot to learn how to be good at photography, and tended to be pretty good at it.

Inventing things - designing things, learning new stuff all the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am the one in the group who isn't talking as much as other people. This tends to work out better in almost all cases - it's not how much you say but rather what you say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Guns Germs and Steel, Kitchen Confidential, The Elegant Universe,
TV? Don't watch much, but what I do will probably be of alot nerdier subject matter than you are used to.

Considerably enjoy Madmen, Parks and Recreation - however.

Read the NYtimes every morning (on my phone, it's 2012 after all and that thing is heavy).

Food network, although it has gone down hill considerably recently.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A cast iron skillet. Seriously - I can make a meal for 5 people in this thing.
+cooking, good food (like bacon)

Good beer, good whiskey.
Computers (gotta work, and stuff like that).
A clean apartment.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to build an impossible product for some people and what I am going to eat for dinner and lunch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with good friends, or cooking food for them. Could also be working at home. Tends to vary significantly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you ask, I'll probably tell you! :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are open to new things (exploring new places, eating new things).
Most likely you should be employed in some normal fashion or at least normal compared to somebody who works during the day and is usually not working anymore at 6.
Seriously if you work from 6PM-1PM on weekdays and on weekends, we probably just wouldn't find a time to ever actually meet up (this has happened before).

You're pretty awesome (or at least consider yourself to be, confidence is hot) - I certainly try to be a better person every day. Don't worry, I am pretty awesome too. I appreciate people who take care of themselves physically and mentally.

You like the outdoors but also love the city - both have great things to offer and I intend to experience all that I can.
