Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Brief bio: Born near Boston, lived in DC, Chicago, San Diego, NYC
for 7 years, Princeton for a minute, and back to BK. Was an
astrophysicist for years, now work at a startup, which I say not
because I think profession is necessarily a good summary of a
person, but because this aspect of me does relate to a lot of other
parts of me.
I'm analytical and I tend to be drawn toward sensitive,
inquisitive, people. I'm often the one that friends turn to for
advice, armchair psychology, or a chance to hang with an amazing
pit/lab mix. (Yes, I just shamelessly pimped my awesome dog to
you.) I create kitchen masterpieces (at least in my own mind) with
and without recipes but usually have more fun without. I stay
active with basketball, biking, dog walks.
It's hard to say exactly what I want in a relationship, but the
basic thing is a sense of understanding and being understood, a
spark of desire to be close with the other. I'm still trying to
figure out this life, and would like to continue to do so with a
partner who inspires me and is excited to continue the journey
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to live mindfully.
Also: I am very interested if there is life in space, which led me
to become an astronomer, so now I astronomize for a living.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm one of the world's experts at hip hop circa 1993. I'm excellent
at eating really spicy food. (I've never in my life had something
that's too spicy for me, but I looked into hot-pepper-eating
contests and they're insane.) And if you need someone to coach you
over the phone on how to calm down and then use your zen to kill a
cockroach, I'm your man (there's a story here).
