Might as well be random: I read. Play basketball. Go to the gym. Watch sports. Invest. Care about my career. Try new restaurants/bars. Try to learn everything about everything.
I think I'm a pretty smart guy. I'm all about being around funny people and making people laugh. Usually I just wind up offending everyone. But I mean well. My sarcasm is hard to interpret at times, for me especially.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an actuary (math/finance) working in investments, and am quite career oriented. Otherwise I moved back to NYC not too long ago and want to enjoy before retiring to the burbs ;)
More importantly, I'm trying to regain my former basketball skills and become a decent swimmer.
I’m really good at
figuring people out, planning things, my job, making honest comments/jokes indistinguishable. I can be philosophical at times. .. .....
The first things people usually notice about me
Sense of humor. Good skin. Apparently my gaze can be intense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All books by Philip Roth and Haruki Murakami. Updike's Rabbit series. We Are Not Ourselves.
Louie, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, Mad Men, Friday Night Lights (TV show), Damages
sushi, shellfish, dessert of all kinds
The Strokes, Rolling Stones, Hold Steady, pretty open to most music

why people think they know what they're doing.
On a typical Friday night I am
at the gym then out to a late dinner. Or drinking in a classy
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still don't know how to ride a bike - don't laugh.
You should message me if
you're funny, chatty, smart, and confident. Or if you want to know
more about me.
