My self-summary
I wish there was just one Motown song about online dating.

Goonies never say die.

In April, I biked 335 miles from Pittsburgh to DC in six days. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I'm going to do it again next year but a roundtrip this time.

Currently on a mission to visit each restaurant on NY Mag's Best New Cheap Eats list.

I'm very tempted to get a dog and name her Zuul, just so I can say, "There is no pet, only Zuul."
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a political consulting firm in Manhattan. Not for candidates, but on projects that need approval, campaigns that need greater visibility, and outreach to elected officials.

Trying to read all 100 books on the NY Times' list of 2014 notable books before the 2015 list is released in November.
I’m really good at
I make a solid burger and am trying to expand to crab cakes and chicken fajitas.

Also, I can play a pretty mean centerfield in softball.
The first things people usually notice about me
I would say it would be my glasses. If you saw me on my way to or from work on the train, you would probably notice me trying to fold the newspaper so as not to annoy the person standing next to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Constellation of Vital Phenomena is a recent read that was really great.

The six things I could never do without
1. Monthly MetroCard - Gotta get around
2. Seltzer - I don't think I could get through the work day without two or three cans.
3. Friends and Family
4. Running - Nothing helps me clear my mind like going for a run in the evening.
5. Cheese - Seriously, what would the world be like without that?
6. Baseball
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking why people hate the G Train so much. It's not that bad folks! Or the F Train for that matter!
On a typical Friday night I am
Listening to whatever new vinyl record I just picked up and trying to cook a new meal. Or going out with friends for some drinks somewhere in Brooklyn.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was featured in the NY Post's Dating page. The NY Post paid for my dinner! Thanks Rupert Murdoch!

When I'm drunk, I sometimes slip into a Jimmy Stewart accent.
You should message me if
You want to try out one of NY Mag's Best Cheap Eats Places with me.

You think Jebediah Atkinson is the new Stefon. You want to find a drive-in near the city.

You think one of the perks of baseball season is listening to Vin Scully call games.
