Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First of all, let's get the fedora out of the way. I know there's a
thing about Guys on OK Cupid Who Wear Fedoras. I don't care. I am a
20th-level contrarian, which means I can pull off the fedora with
I'm an artist, I founded a small Williamsburg gallery, I day-job
for a deceased collector's estate, and yet art makes me cranky as
hell. But it's okay, since most of my friends tell me that I'm at
my funniest, my most vividly alive, when I have a bug up my ass
Do you ever see creative types on this site, and you can't help but
think, 'Maybe they make really bad work. Maybe that's why they're
That's not me.
Er, I think that's not me?
I like to think of myself as 'mostly not a dick'.
I give good nicknames. Just ask my friends Moonbeam and Torchy. Or
my niece, Eyeball. Or my cat, Cobramouth Marshmallow.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm reading, drawing, and trying to drink 1.5 glasses of wine
before bed. I'm told that you can get the same beneficial effects
of wine from drinking pomegranate juice. Why the hell anyone would
want to do that is beyond me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pragmatic skills: I can build. I built my own loft and my own
gallery, and I'm pretty proud of that.
DISCLAIMER: I am not 'really good' at construction, compared to
actual contractors. I have lots of art-related skills but I'm more
impressed that I can build walls and floors, so that's what I'm
leading with. Also, bragging about what you do creatively strikes
me as douche-y.
I'm also scary good at identifying obscure character actors. If Six
Degrees of Kevin Bacon was an olympic sport, I would be writing
this from the bottom of a heap of gold medals.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm funny. I don't have to be 'on' all the time like some demented
college drama major, but I am funny when I need to be. And on those
occasions, very funny indeed.*
*granted, this paragraph is not in itself particularly funny. You
will just have to trust me on this.

I'm an adventurous eater; The weirder it is, the more I want to try
it. Love oysters, Japanese street food, Italian cuisine especially.

You are artsy, nerdy, smart. I don't believe I have a 'type', but I
