My self-summary
I'm a professor in the US, working in Berlin for at least one year, possibly longer. I've lived in Berlin before, so I know my way around, though my German is pretty weak. My German friends find my attempts to speak German highly amusing, so you might too.

I'm definitely the dorky academic type. I enjoy a good zombie film, road trips, divey restaurants, book stores, great conversations. I'm a cross between a hopeless romantic and a pragmatic pessimist with a hard exterior. I attribute my hard exterior to the 10 years I lived in NYC. :)

I'm looking to meet someone around my age (give or take 10 yrs?) who is independent, interesting, confident, thinks for himself, and is doing something with his life. Someone clear, honest, communicative, and has his shit together. I have a hard time connecting with people who are unfocused/scattered/unable to follow through.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, learning, writing...oh and cooking. I can cook a mean Morgh e-Torsh! (google it). No really, I'm an awesome cook.
I’m really good at
Writing obscure and dense prose that nobody will ever read in order to get tenure.

I'm good at listening.

Procrastinating. Wanna go to a museum?
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe my lips. My big semitic Arab nose (meine große Nase) :). I dunno.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Toni Morrison, James Baldwin, Jean Toomer, Melville, Balzac, Achebe, Edward Said, and good ole Fredric Jameson. Then there are the Arab writers, but you've never heard of them. :)

Music: Anything from soul/R&B to classical (Schubert, Beethoven, Prokofiev). I grew up in Detroit, so I am loyal to Aretha Franklin (and others from Motown). I like bad Arabic pop and classics like Fayrouz. I think Broadway musicals are awful--trite, cliched nonsense. Yes, I'm a bad gay, and proudly so. If you're obsessed with Broadway theater, don't message me. I'll want to punch you if we meet and you sing Broadway show tunes.

Food: Arabic, Persian, Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian. Did I mention I'm a good cook?

Movies: Horror, Foreign, Indie, and the occasional Hollywood blockbuster. I love Iranian cinema, Almodovar, and political documentaries about how fucked up capitalism is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How shit's messed up yo!
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm too private to tell you!
