My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wow, ok:

Born and raised in the Lower East Side; taught elementary school for a while in the Bronx, and middle school in Harlem; went into the grocery store the other night with every intention of preparing a healthy dinner and walked out with tortilla chips, a tub of fresh made guacamole, and some Klondike bars--this is ok, yes?; farmed in El Salvador for a bit; the original Muppet Movie soundtrack is indelibly etched in my brain; I have a thing for bad puns; I get goosebumps when the NYC skyline first comes into view on the NJ turnpike.

Less curiously: teaching polisci at a local college, and researching and writing for a living. I keep busy by spending time with my family and friends, seeing movies and visiting museums, hitting up music clubs, exploring new restaurants, hiking in the woods, or reading. I do that a lot.

For what it’s worth, I prefer Goodfellas to The Godfather, the Yankees to the Mets, the Left to the center, Coltrane to Kenny G (yeah, I get that this isn't exactly drawing a line in the sand), the British Office to the American, Digable Planets to 50 Cent, red wine to white, The Simpsons to Family Guy, Ben and Jerry’s to Haagen-Dazs (on most days), Zadie Smith to Jonathan Franzen, the East Coast to the West (usually).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach, research, and write about international relations, and edit a magazine that covers the literature, art and politics of war zones.

Also, travelling, as much as possible. Most recent trips have been to the Netherlands, Lebanon, Guyana, Egypt, Greece, Turkey, Iraq. I just returned from a few weeks traveling through Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia--stunningly beautiful places.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Packing light and traveling far. Finding excellent food at little holes in the wall. Writing. Napping. Spending troublingly large amounts of money on records.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Recently finished reading Patti Smith's M Train, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Americanah and am now deep into a Phillip Roth kick. Help.

Movies: The original Muppet movies, the original Taking of Pelham One, Two, Three.

Music: Jazz, soul, 90s rap, rock, and more jazz. Orchestra Baobab. A bunch of other stuff.

Food: I'll eat anything, and probably like it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Old friends
New Lands
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether alligators alligate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Savoring food, drinks, and the company of friends. Struggling with a sentence. Exploring the Met after hours. Enjoying live music. Converting headlines into footnotes. Settling in for a movie marathon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like licking the batter off those electric mixer twirly things. That, and I stole some office supplies once.
