I love many things about my life: I have a challenging and rewarding job, large and diverse groups of friends, plenty of fun activities/travel/ pastimes, and I think I do a decent job of expressing positivity and kindness toward myself and others. I feel like I live life pretty "fast" but what makes me feel most fulfilled are deep discussions, shared vulnerability, exciting artistic experiences, making the world a better place in the little ways I can.
I'm not afraid to dream big, and am looking for one special guy to go after our dreams together.
What I’m doing with my life
Surrounding myself with an amazing community of people that inspire me, make me laugh, help me learn and think deeply about life, and that work to sustain the things and people they care about.
Love my job in publishing, but always on the lookout for the next big opportunity. I've already been through a few career phases.
I’m really good at
Understanding why people think and feel they way they do.
Listening. Others might say "singing."
The first things people usually notice about me
That I listen a lot. I'm not really shy or introverted, but I like
to hear people voice their ideas fully or to hear all of a story,
so I don't often interrupt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I could spend hours talking about this, but will refrain. Here are some select favorites:
Book: The Sea (Banville)
Opera: Così fan tutte (Mozart)
Short story: The Kreutzer Sonata (Tolstoy)
Movies: Nobody Knows (Koreeda), Caché (Haneke)
Musical: The Book of Mormon
The six things I could never do without
- Time outside every day,
- My phone,
- Seeing my family multiple times per year,
- Live performances of theatre and opera, and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people do what they do, the future of society, urban planning and the built environment around us, the future of books and media, what will improve my friends' lives, how people find time for TV.
On a typical Friday night I am
At dinner, a play/symphony/opera, a friend's house, a movie, or out of town visiting my family/friends around the country/world. Maybe drinks, maybe karaoke.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll admit pretty much anything in person.
