Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a kind guy, good heart, staunchly loyal, ambitious, romantic,
reliable, and engaging.
I love to make people laugh.
I maintain an active, healthy lifestyle and regularly play rugby,
run, do yoga, & bike.
I do all this so I can eat Thai food and 16 Handles on the

Natalie Dessay and I once had a great conversation and then she

Love is great, and wonderful, and painful, and powerful, and I like
it that way.
One time I hit a hole-in-one on the windmill hole. Fellow mini-golf
enthusiasts will appreciate the nuance this requires.
And now, maybe the most important: I'm looking for a serious
relationship that could ultimately be "the" relationship. Not in an
overbearing sort of way, but if you're not sure of want you want,
I'm probably not your guy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm applying to a JD/MBA program focusing in Music Business. It
sounds super type A and business-y, but I assure you I ain't. I've
managed bands and produced music festivals for the past five years,
so this seems like the most natural/professional move. Oh, and
finalizing plans to start a pretty sweet dessert company. So a lot
of pots on the stove, but I'm a pretty good chef.
Also: reading in Central Park, visiting pretty much any
museum/gallery, plotting my escape from the country, or lamenting
the decline of letter-writing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Expressing myself: Equally vocal as I am adroit.
Cooking: I'm a nice Jewish boy, and I'll make you a chicken soup
your grandmother would be proud of.
Entertaining: My mom raised me to be the consummate host.
Planning adventures: Here or abroad, one pair of underwear or two
suitcases for which I had to flirt with the check-in lady to get
out of extra baggage fees.
Music: I've been in music management for 5 years and I'm a
classically trained singer, so if you're ever longing to have an
aria (or a Billy Joel song) sung to you, I'm your guy. Also Billy
Joel, but I'm more readily available.
Scrabble: It's a bit lamentable, really; my friends won't play with
Using semicolons; in fact, having good grammar goes a long way in
Getting dressed up: it's one of the best byproducts of having a Met
Playing the spoons -- pretty sure I'm one of the only Jews who
knows how to rock out a cèilidh.
Talking about art/philosophy.
Scouring used book stores.
Finding happiness in simplicity.
Being a big spoon.
