My self-summary
A big fan of what I call the 'milkshake' date. That is 2 people meet and go for a milkshake. Dangle their feet and discuss whatever it is.. 2 strangers. I enjoy that.

Soo. life story. dropped out of a formal education with a few weeks to go, exploring the world up close, living in different cities (11). working online or locally. Hustling for gigs like Jon Voight did in Midnight Cowboy, - except in a different industry.

Miss that adventurous time, am lucky, somehow it turned out alright.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now trying to be an electric michelangelo. Making 'things' is a profession, hobby, muse, mistress, monastery. Dedicated to this life of a designing/building and simply love the age we are living in now.

Final stretch of 30's, life and career are going well, check; well traveled for business and leisure (or let's call it curiosity not leisure), check; just getting back to NYC after 6 months away, check; Missed it.

My main priority right now is trying to turn this beautiful apartment - though it would also make an excellent haunted house - a home.
I’m really good at
-Getting along with parents, kids and animals
-Tennis serves
-Sloppy joke deliveries
-Impromptu sitar/piano/guitar performances
-Good dinners
The first things people usually notice about me
Hearty, humorous and eccentric, maybe just eccentric.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really love old things from all different places. If I weren't trying to sell myself to you, I would say "old things are cool".

Coffee, independent cinema, jazz music, kiva, delorean cars, building/rebuilding houses, finding good food in nooks of the city, how technology can solve big problems, milkshakes, reading mostly non-fiction things and simply being alive.

*non-fiction exception: was in New Orleans recently and rode the streetcar, have started reading a streetcar named desire. latest*

Some random duke ellington, woody allen, nick drake, flamenco music, the knife, billie holiday, helen forrest a WWII singer. the economist magazine, A short-lived band from Montreal called land of talk, all architecture, all spicy foods and deep colors, toronto, portland, istanbul, van gogh, south park, film techniques, jorge benjor, comedians in cars getting coffee, rachmaninoff, dirty projectors, david byrne, miles+trane,
The six things I could never do without
1. Starred Spotify Playlists
2. Time to play ukulele at work
3. Chess set
4. Horchata in the SF Mission
5. fleeting correspondence with kurt vonnegut jr. (sent in response to sending him a counterfeit nobel prize). He wrote back on an absolute vodka postcard.
6. Cappuccino or Americano at 4pm
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Human nature / people's beliefs / collective failure
-The book I would love to write about chinatown... what happens in it...
-Our one chance at life. Sorry reincarnators...
On a typical Friday night I am
For the past 6 months getting to a US west coast city. Now back in NY. Love going to MOMA on Fridays when in the area.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
(co-workers and mom please shut your eyes) for what it's worth,...somewhere between vanilla and dom on the spexstrum. It's a hidden part of my personality, quite private. A pure gentleman otherwise.
You should message me if
you want a male friend and we have something in common, books/tennis/art films/music *up to / including* tada the pure friend zone... (I make a fun platonic date). You love artwork, not just in galleries.

You jam with INTJ/INTPs. you are real. you speak a lovely language. You have some aspect of compassion and humanity for others. You are a little crazy for this life.
