My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(obligatory "i hate talking about myself" comment)

friends and acquaintances have described as formidable yet goofy. however, i like to think of myself as that old groucho marx joke: "i wouldn't belong to any club that will have me as a member."

been in new york for four years--and just made the move to Brooklyn--yet have maintained that Chicago/Midwest sensibility.

when i'm not bopping along the city streets, journalizing or tutoring kids once a week, i'm playing soccer, climbing at Brooklyn boulders. skiing (if it's a snowy winter), hiking or at some music venue.

my perfect summer day involves a baseball game and a beer (and possibly a hammock and a book). (it is also my goal to visit every major league stadium in the country. i'm a little more than one-third of the way through.)

during a recent van ride from the Colorado mountains to Denver, my driver was saying that life is about generating stories. so i guess i'm looking for a partner in crime who will join me in story generation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
covering the most esoteric parts of the global financial system while maintaining my sanity through myriad activities such as soccer/softball, working my through unread sections of past Sunday New York Times
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
sleeping through anything/naps, puns, properly using the phrase "champing at the bit," the Monday-Wednesday NYTimes crossword puzzles (in pen) and picking up marbles with my toes
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sultry voice (or so a cabbie told me), the strange way I hold a writing instrument (i've been told i write like an f'in' caveman)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: Own three copies of Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing On the Campaign Trail of '72"; own four copies of Tom Wolfe's "Bonfire of the Vanities"; other works include anything by Michael Lewis, the "Jeeves and Wooster" series (P.G. Wodehouse), "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," "The stories of John Cheever", anything by David Halberstam or Haruki Murakami; and currently obsessed with Gary Shteyngart ... also reading a lot of finance books as i'm working on one of my own

Favorite movies (or what i quote most): anything by Mel Brooks (especially Spaceballs and Blazing Saddles), Muppets Take Manhattan (although Joan Rivers still scares me), Some Like It Hot, the Princess Bride, Field of Dreams, Major League, Ghostbusters, anything from Wes Anderson (tie between Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, Rushmore), the Smartest Guys in the Room, Adventureland, most movies by Woody Allen (Annie Hall, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex [But Were Afraid to Ask], Manhattan)

Favorite TV shows: Monty Python, Mad Men, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, old episodes of Kids in the Hall

Music (too many to name, but most played on my iPhone): My Morning Jacket/Jim James, Beck, Otis Redding, Bob Dylan, Velvet Underground, Wilco, the Rolling Stones, Phish, Arcade Fire, the Shins; also listening to lots of folk and bluegrass lately

I'll try everything once, except won't eat pork. I've never had it so I don't think I'm missing anything … unfortunately, since i was diagnosed with a lot of food allergies over the summer, i've had to give up a lot of foods, including all dairy, eggs and barley (no more beer)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends & family; 2. Pen (because I always have ideas--I tend to write on napkins or coasters); 3. String of pearls from my grandmother); 4. My passport; 5. My box of letters and memories; 6. Skis and or running shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's next ... I don't like sitting still, always need to have a project on my plate or something to look forward to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at a concert or sporting event; sometimes half asleep on the couch depending on the week
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
there are lots of private things i'm willing to admit, just ask!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're a fellow Jew who like books, puns, irreverence and baseball (gotta enjoy baseball), the outdoors and knowing what's going on in the world...

you're a little bit weird

you're up for a camping trip in a Hawaiian crater

... and you're curious as to how I earned the nickname "Con Air"
