Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
NYC born and raised, which is probably the root cause of my cynical
idealism. Self-awareness is a fundamental part of my world view.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as an analyst/writer for a smallish independent research
company. I thoroughly enjoy my job, despite/because of how
challenging it can be, and truly believe in what we're doing
(Kool-Aid anyone?). I essentially read and write all day,
publishing pieces that try to sort through the bullshit that major
companies espouse. I'm also the only one of my friends not involved
in the creative arts or digital marketing.
Beyond that, trying to balance my need/desire for personal
happiness with my inner professional ambition. It's a constant
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Puzzles (except jigsaw), self-deprecating humor
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm pretty much an equal opportunist in these categories, although
definitely would be considered a "reader". Some of the things I've
read (and enjoyed) recently: Harlot's Ghost, Honor Thy Father,
Lenin's Tomb, Cloud Atlas, Ghost Wars, Den of Thieves, In the
Garden of Beasts, Let the Great World Spin, New York, I Claudius,
1Q84, the Big Sleep, Prague Cemetery
(Current) Shows: Arrested Development (never again thought I'd be
able to say a 'current' show), House of Cards, Game of Thrones,
Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Ray Donovan, Venture Bros. And an
occasional sucker for Pawn Stars.
Music tastes are truly full spectrum: Rebirth Brass Band to Big
Pun, Dipset to (Bob) Dylan, the Heavy to the Who.
Food: I think I can honestly say the only food I don't like is
dill. And that's not even really a food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
coffee, NYT crossword, driving, headphones, reading material, brand
new socks (I think socks might be the only article of clothing that
doesn't get better with time. It's all downhill after that first
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Dressing appropriately for the day's weather and managing the
work/play dynamic. I fail pretty regularly at both.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I feel that as I get older the concept of a "typical" weeknight
night becomes more and more remote. I could be: working, enjoying a
cigar and a bottle of bourbon at Refugio's, home doing a weed &
movie night, playing pool at a bar, doing something more ruckus.
