Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in a tiny little landlocked country called
Paraguay. Please dont ask me if that is in Europe as I had to kill
several conversations for that reason (ignorance is bliss, but come
I also spent a couple of years in Asia, living in Hong Kong but
doing significant travel and backpacking to exciting places like
Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Mainland China,
Thailand and a few others.
Oberlin College was my first exposure to the United States and man
that was culture shock! I went to school with the most liberal kids
in the planet and I loved it. It really had a role in defining who
I am now. Lived in Boston after that and then came to NYC for grad
school at Columbia. I now work as a banker in the renewable energy
sector and I am really excited about what I do which unfortunately
often results in my being a bit of a workaholic.
I am highly motivated, intellectually curious and enormously enjoy
articulate, witty conversation. By “witty” I really mean laughing
so hard tears salt one’s pea and mint soup.
I dislike arrogance, close-mindedness, anyone who wears Crocs
that's over the age of 6, people who block the door on the subway,
when someone asks me if I am "having fun?" at their party, and the
expression "what happens in vegas..." or any derivation used to
suit the current situation at hand.
Oh yea, and I'm heavy on the sarcasm. Once you get to know me, I
likely won't let an opportunity pass by to make fun of something or
someone. So don't wear a silly looking scarf or hat and expect to
get away with it in my presence.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a renewable energy banker by day gym junkie, scotch snob and
party animal by night
I just moved to the East Village and lovin it!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
getting shit done, making people laugh, having a positive attitude
about everything in life even when everything is going down the
drain, sarcasm, jokes, talking nonsense
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my accent which is not too strong but noticeable, I am inevitably
asked about it when I meet someone. I think it generally plays in
my favor ;)

Tv: Game of Thrones, Californication, How I met your mother, Modern
Family, Daily show w/ Stewart (the only way I get my news, also

Reads: I tend to alternate mostly between finance/economic books,
you wont like the list, its starts with the economist and ends with
freakonomics. I pick up the new yorker every now and then, as well
Music: I have Spotify and its amazing. I keep hacking into my
friend's playlists and explore different artist. I'm generally a
Rock/Alternative type of guy as well as latin rock/pop, but I'll
listen to just about anything for a short period of time. Anything
but country music
Food: Oh wow, where do I begin - I think I'll take the easy road on
this one and say I'm adventurous when it comes to new food (more
Anthony Bourdain and less Andrew Zimmerman). Great food is one of
the excellent pleasures of life!
