My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty much your standard starry-eyed, kale-eating, NPR-listening, liberal-intellectual idealist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Designing my way to a better world. I'm a freelance art director and designer working mostly with progressive nonprofits and local businesses. I love it, but occasionally wonder when I decided being able to sleep at night was more important than being able to afford a fancy apartment to sleep in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spelling. I could probably kick your ass at spelling. I'm also not too shabby at camping and can cook a mean brisket (but not while camping—at least I haven't attempted it yet). On the flipside, I'm an atrocious bowler but I'll gladly do it anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hopefully my smile, since I'm usually laughing, smirking, or some combination of the two.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite movie is Die Hard...followed closely by Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version). So go figure. I never get tired of Jaws even though I'm convinced it's to blame for my fear of the ocean. And I'm a sucker for anything Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, or Alfred Hitchcock.

Books I could read over and over and over again: The Great Gatsby, Cloud Atlas, The Visual Display of Quantitative Information; Books I've read recently and am still thinking about: The Circle, Blindness; Books I'm perpetually only halfway through: House of Mirth

Favorite food...all of them? In a car-ride game of, "If you could eat just one food for the rest of your life (and, yes, it would magically satisfy all your nutritional needs)" I recently answered peach pie. But I concede there may be flaws with that choice.

Definitely "music that can be listened to outdoors for free" tops the list. Beyond that, it sort of veers wildly between soul, bluegrass, and classic punk. I've been listening to a lot of Fitz & the Tantrums lately, and am not-so-secretly excited about The Oranges Band reunion show this fall.

Shows are probably unsurprising: Orange is the New Black, The Walking Dead, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Louie, Mad Men, plus I have a new NYC-centric affinity for Seinfeld reruns.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends (cliche and obvious, but true)
A decent burger
A good beer (preferably alongside the burger)
Sunshine
Broken-in jeans
Old-style numerals (yes, I'm a type geek)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just about everything. And I can be pretty opinionated about a lot of it, so be warned.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ready for a drink. Not in an unhealthy disgruntled-with-life kind of way; more like ready-to-unwind-and-ease-into-the-weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
