My self-summary
I'm an outgoing, friendly, in-shape, clever, open-minded, quick-witted and idealistic guy living in NYC.

I’m grateful to have a group of talented and interesting friends. This crew would describe me as “intense,” and “honest.” I’ve turned this intensity and honesty into humor, having written and performed comedy for many years.

I'm originally from Brooklyn and have spent most of my adult life in NYC. A couple of years ago I ventured out to Silicon Valley to work for Facebook, but I'm now back home amongst my real life social network. As proof of my ability to thrive in all temperatures, I lived as happily out there as I have when I lived in LA and London (where I was a radio announcer forced to use a fake American accent even though I'm American).

According to Myers-Briggs I'm an NSFW.
What I’m doing with my life
I've made job choices based on what was interesting to me rather than money. This led me to becoming a Creative Director at a few ad agencies, and I'm now considered an expert (I just made air quotes) in my field and am able to help others develop their own ideas and talents through teaching and mentoring, which I'm very passionate about.

I'm currently freelancing. This gives me lots of flexibility with time, which I use to take classes about stuff that interests me (like advanced swimming technique and hands-on classes at the MOMA. Now that I've got the time and means to travel, it'd be great to get find someone to get out of town, state, or country with.

I create a lot of odd projects that have been enjoyed around the world. You can see some at www.JeffGreenspan.com. I also enjoy bike riding, yoga, seeing concerts, hiking, traveling, and museum-going.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh without being mean, flossing, beatboxing, taking chances, staying curious, making strange voices, seeing many sides to a story, following through, finding good apartments, and knowing what color a Terra Chip is just by feeing it from inside the bag. I also excel at picking out a gym locker that, no matter how empty the gym is, will undoubtedly be right next to someone else who needs to get to their locker the same time I do.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I sound like Ed Norton.

The six things I could never do without
Maslow's hierarchy of needs (1 thru 5) and music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights should never be typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I lied about my age by two years.
You should message me if
A voice inside you said you should.
