My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a mathematician by trade. I grew up in DC but spent ten years in LA doing various types of schooling. Six of those years resulted in a PhD in theoretical physics. "Applications of String Theory to questions in black hole physics and hydrodynamics." It was fun.

Now, I'm in new york working for an investment bank, and am much happier. There were things that I loved about academia, but in the end, I think it's probably better that I'm working somewhere where getting the math right has a bit more of an impact than it did when I was calculating the thermal conductivity of a hypothetical conformal fluid.

Outside of work I love all things dance. This is a relatively recent realization for me. Seeing ballet, taking tango lessons, and now I'm even learning foxtrot and waltz. The exercise value is marginal, but there's something about the movement, especially with a partner, which, when done correctly, is like no other feeling I've felt.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Math and Dance. A friend and I are trying to start up a smiths cover band. I play the drums.

Work takes up a lot of time, and recently, so does dancing, but weekends can be filled with all sorts of other interesting stuff. Mostly finding time to piece together visits with friends or family like puzzle pieces.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Math, obviously. But also teaching. In grad school, I usually had the honor of teaching college physics to pre-meds. They would come in terrified, but every once in a while a real spark of interest would shine it's way through their cold A-seeking exterior. You should see me give my lecture on Maxwell's derivation of the speed of light. It's a thing of beauty if I do say so myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I used to really like fiction, and my favorites were roughly Mann, Beckett, Nabakov, Pynchon, Joyce, and Murakami plus many more I'm sure. Lately though I've been hung up on non fiction and I'm wondering how long this can last.

I love the yardbirds and the zombies. Paul Simon post Garfunkel. Donovan, Dillon, Miles Davis. Of course talking heads and the cars, and there's a few local bands I got to know out in LA that I loved, the tijuana panthers and the muslims now soft pack. Haven't seen enough local music since I came to NY.

It took me a while to get used to the fact that there is no good mexican food in this city, but since I've given up on avacados out here I've been much happier. Halal carts help. I also like Per Se. Preferably on the same day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
All in all, I'd like to think I'm a pretty resilient person and could make do with the absence of just about anything. But the things I'd miss most:

1. A scratch pad of illegible scribblings used to organize my thoughts, mathematical or otherwise.
2. Burgundy.
3. I'd like to say music, but can go for while like a camel with music in my head. Still there are times when a record must be played.
4. Laptop / internet connection. Not very exciting, but it sucks when it goes out.
5. Clever food. I really like it when you can tell people are trying. I like it even more when it works.
6. Clever people. Same.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
who knows where. Sometimes I'm asleep by 10, other times I'm out till dawn. Lately though, I've either been on the train to go see my family or on a plane to see some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've always pictured myself as a Lloyd Dobbler type but am slowly coming to the realization that I have a lot more in common with Rob Gordon.
