My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Summary, eh? I wrote this profile bottom up so this is going to feel very redundant.

For lack of a better way to start, I'm a very passionate person, and if you talk with me you will notice a few things. One is that I care very much about living ethically, and big questions to me, things like career choices and where I might like to settle down, have a lot to do with that. So okay, I care about ethics, but then apparently I also make an effort to read literature and listen to classical music and go see Broadway shows about love working out or love not working out. And yes, I'm passionate about these things, and I'm passionate about the patterns that give rise to complex systems and add livelihood to cities like it's nobody's business.

Health is obviously extremely important to me. I run and exercise a lot and do gym yoga (as opposed to raja yoga, for instance... yeah). I meditated every day for about 2 years although I'm not practicing that now. And this makes sense, because you can't really pursue ethics or beauty without being healthy first.

That leaves connections. I need to be around people I like a lot and who I want to pursue this thing called life with and who I want to succeed at it in some shared way, and it's my friends who I can build my stories and my passions from. So, you wanted a self summary, there you have it: ethics for how to live, beauty for why to live, health to make sure to live, and connections because how else would you live.

Of course sometimes I do random slightly neurotic things like try mapping out all of my interests and tracking which I'm pursuing each day. I now call that boredom. Sometimes it's useful, but most of the time a good TV show takes care of that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now?

- Continuing not completely failing at New Years resolution to cook all my weekday meals. Yeah, it's spring and I still care about my New Years resolutions, that's right.
- Having random dinner and board game parties, because I actually have a damn nice studio apartment and it's about time I act like it. And also previous point.
- San Francisco half marathon in July! So training for that. I need to find a hill to train on.
- I'm reading lots of books but I'm not really sure what. Kind of lost track. It's good to have this problem.
- Picked up rock climbing at Brooklyn Boulders. It's basically the best place I've found to just hang out in the city, ever.
- Bizarrely excited for Smorgasburg season, so it's just going to be a Brooklyn spring and summer all around. No objections to seeing Broadway or Summer Streets or Central Park, though.
- For the fall, Carnegie Hall season tickets!

And I'm a developer at a startup which is going well. I think I want to either go in the pretty disparate directions of data science ideally with some public service impact, or writing and just trying to know and espouse on lots of stuff. I like New York but I need to travel more (hence, SF half and not Brooklyn half), since I don't consider not being able to see myself anywhere else a good thing. I've noticed a lot of devs who write and think I can go be more like that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting people excited about things. Finding random classical / dance / etc. performances to go see. Figuring out which of my friends to invite to German board games. Also tend to know what street festivals are going on and where the most interesting vegan food is at any given point.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Appearance: "Nice socks."

Personality: "Wait, is this a new topic?" No! It is NEVER a new topic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anna Karenina, Snow Falling on Cedars, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, The Art of Racing in the Rain, Godel Escher Bach, I Am A Strange Loop, Omnivore's Dilemma, Thinking Fast and Slow, The Death and Life of Great American Cities.

How I Met Your Mother, apparently Orphan Black, Breaking Bad, Sherlock, 30 Rock.

For music, really just two things: indie playlists on Songza, and classical piano. Totally got season tickets to Carnegie Hall's Keyboard Virtuosos II series.

I went vegan, and if you're not, I'll give you three reasons that's not awkward: Phatty Beet Sliders, Alchemy Creamery, Creme Brulee donut at Dunwell Donuts. All of which can be found at your local Smorgasburg this non-winter. Which is definitely one of our first two dates, by the way.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Sunny runs, stormy runs.
2. I'm a guy and I do yoga. So yoga.
3. Native New Yorker friends who put me in my place.
4. A well-equipped kitchen.
5. Colorful socks.
6. Extra business cards because they make amazing bookmarks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
That moment when you're comfortable enough with somebody you actually want to just read poetry together.

That passage from Milan Kundera, about how people compose their lives precisely so they have literary meaning, even and especially in moments of greatest distress.

What the protagonist in Chopin's Ballade No. 4 is actually going through in the climax of the piece.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Recent Friday nights have included: Some random vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner I found at a meditation center, running 2 loops around Prospect Park, board games, chilling in a coffee shop and writing / working on some weird programming project. Pretty happy with that.
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.
If when you were a kid, you had a magical alter-ego (preferably sorceress, excuse the gender normativity) and know what your element was.

If you didn't think "OMG your sentences are long," we can probably get through a date at least.

I'm pro-serendipity in general, so I guess if that all was unhelpful just ignore the "if."
