My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm left-handed, curious, into podcasts, stand-up, bread baskets, dad jokes, extra soft hoodies, mini golf and hanging out with my dog. Really, hanging out with anyone's dog, but especially mine. I am always looking for a reason to go up to Vermont or Maine. I have a sneaking suspicion that my glasses are actually making my vision worse, but think I look weird without them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in television casting, baking, finding things in my apartment that I can spray paint (most recently some dinosaurs and a seal), making my Pandora Summer Hits of the 90s station awesome.

Probably staying in NY forever but continuing to dream about wrap-around porches and gas grills.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cash Cab, baking/cooking, foisting said food onto friends, tourist dodging, dog/baby whispering, frosting cupcakes and feeling awkward around strangers.
The first things people usually notice about me

That I'm tall, but worth the climb.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some of my favorite authors are Adam Haslett, Michael Ondaatje, Junot Diaz, Zadie Smith, Neal Stephenson, Donna Tartt, and Jonathan Franzen. I love well-written short stories. I've got a few (mostly unused) English degrees under my belt and sometimes miss academia.

I like/can focus better on documentaries. Harp competitions, middle school chess tournaments, hoarders-- if it's weird, I probably like it. In middle school my favorite movies were Speed and Empire Records, if that says anything about me.

Music: Frightened Rabbit, Explosions in the Sky, embarrassing pop "radio", King of Wishful Thinking... I like music to typically be ambient or have a catchy hook.

TV: Friday Night Lights and The Wire will always be my favorites. More recently, I'm a fan of The Knick, Transparent, The Mind of a Chef, Silicon Valley, The Newsroom and The Leftovers. Also, I can't talk enough about how much I loved The Jinx and every second of Broad City.

Podcasts: You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes, Nerdist, Savage Love, Invisibilia, Hound Tall with Moshe Kasher, Girl On Guy, Intelligence Squared Debates, Serial, This American Life, RadioLab, Fresh Air, WTF.

If you're into food I could talk about it for hours. If you're not, I love dumplings. The cheaper the better. I want to take you for pork buns under the bridge in Flushing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Jokes, honesty, soft sheets, public transportation, summer dresses, and kale. Ok, kale is a lie... probably soft pretzels.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why I always sneeze in multiples of three, if the ads on the sidebar of OKCupid might know me better than I know myself, and how I could be better using my time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
finally exhaling after the week, not watching Waiting to Exhale, definitely wearing my pajamas...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I once whispered in John Mayer's ear that I thought he was beautiful, he didn't hear me and made me repeat myself. This was 2001-- try not to judge me too harshly.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're the guy on the subway to just texted his girlfriend, "I want food. and your boobs. Cheeseburgers and titties!" (or you at least agree that that's a funny thing to say to someone.)

You're into a confident plus-sized girl who looks like my pictures and proudly has, but would never use the term, "junk in the trunk".
