My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm left-handed, curious, and can really get behind a good dad joke. I'm into podcasts, stand-up comedy, bread baskets, extra soft hoodies, mini golf and hanging out with my dog. I am always looking for a reason to go to Vermont or Maine. I have a sneaking suspicion that my glasses are actually making my vision worse.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in casting, baking, seeing what I successfully turn into a waffle, finding things in my apartment that I can spray paint, curating my Pandora Summer Hits of the 90s station.

I've lived in Philadelphia, Vermont, England and now New York for 7 years or so... I'm probably here for good but frequently dream about porches and backyards.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cash Cab, the aforementioned baking/cooking, dodging tourists in Times Square, relating to little kids, frosting cupcakes and feeling awkward around strangers.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Recently my bangs. Sometimes glasses. 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, Curtis Sittenfeld, and Jonathan Franzen. I love well-written short stories and sometimes miss academia. I've got a few English degrees under my belt and not much to do with them.

I like/can focus better on documentaries. Harp competitions, middle school chess tournaments, hoarders, you name it, I probably like it. In middle school my favorite movies were Speed and Empire Records, if that says anything about me. I've been trying to see Whiplash for 2 months but still haven't made the time.

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.
The big one recently is why my heat is never on, but also 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?
seeing theater or doing something that involves 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". Everyone has their preference, so I'm sharing this with you up front.

Also, I don't care if you're shorter than me. You shouldn't either.
