Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay, so I’ll admit to using Snapchat, but only to stay in touch
with my 11 year old niece (who mostly ignores my chats)
I was a caricature artist about 15 years ago. That's right, I drew
pictures of people with big heads on little bodies, like the kind
you'd get at the fair. If you're nice, I might draw you as a
When I was a kid, I was a huge fan of Hanna Barberra cartoons. I
used to watch that stuff for hours! I think that's how I got into
illustration (and later design).
I’ve played guitar for over a decade now, but when it came time to
buy my first electric guitar, it took two years to find the right
one (a ’78 Les Paul Double Cut). Some might say I’m picky, I’d say
I have high standards.
I’m in the process of helping pay to refinance my parents’ home so
that they can retire.
I like to work out, it's important to me. If I don't work out, I’ll
get old and fat faster. Not good. I hope you like to work out as
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an Art Director at a large digital agency here in NYC. I'm
pretty passionate about what I do, and I enjoy being creative for a
living (well, not always but most of the time).
Also, I have a degree in Fine Art with an emphasis in Oil Painting,
so I'm more of a drawer/painter. Thing is, I really enjoy making
art for myself and not just clients, so it's a goal of mine to some
day soon have a show of just my work.
And even though it's a more of a pastime, I also enjoy playing
guitar. I mostly play my own stuff, but lately I've been getting
really into learning to play some of my favorite songs. Oh, and
before you ask, it's gotta be a pretty damn good song for me to
take a request.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring out what 80s song is playing in whatever bodega I'm in.

Considering our striking resemblance, Ryan Gosling could play my
stunt double. That is, if I didn’t already do my own stunts.
Oh, and my humility.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - when I had more time I would read stuff like: Eggers,
Bukowski, Harry Crews, Martin Amis, Cormac McCarthy etc. Now it's
mostly stuff for work or some blog. I'm open to suggestions.
Movies - The movie I've probably watched the most is The Big
Lebowski. I love that it's basically a film noir detective story,
except that instead of the hero being a hard-nosed private eye,
he's a total burnout.
Shows - Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, Game of
Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Wire, Better Call Saul.
Music - Too much to mention here. Classic rock, punk, indie. I'm
really into making Spotify playlists. If you're interested, I'll
send you a link.
Food - If re-incarnation is real, then I was most likely the guy
that invented guacamole, because that's about the only thing I'm
good at making. I'd love to learn how to cook, and I've been on a
real health kick lately, so bonus points if you can show me how to
make salads taste good.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My dog, guitar, skateboard, sketchbook, music, humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is Nutella really chocolate?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Every time I come on OK Cupid, I get that song "Just the Two of Us"
stuck in my head. I know, I know, I really went out on a limb to
reveal something so incredibly personal. Also, one time, I googled
it and found out that song was by Grover Washington Jr. and not Lou
Rawls. Good times.
