I'm in my second year in Seattle and loving it. It's so beautiful
and relaxed out there. I moved out here for a job but am loving
exploring the city. But there is so much more I want to see,
especially new restaurants, new museums, and tons of hiking. I'm a
Midwesterner at heart so I do miss a few things, like real
thunderstorms. Sorry, Seattle's rain isn't enough.
I'm a laid back guy who is happy being adventurous and trying new
things, while equally content being lazy and taking it easy. I
still consider myself new to town, who has been focused on setting
up my professional life. Now I'm looking to build my personal life,
and hopefully meet someone special.
I've lived or worked in 9 states and 2 countries. My bachelors is
in neurobiology. I've travelled to 38 states and over a dozen
countries. There is a lot more to explore too!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Jewish professional. Judaism is an important part of my life
but it certainly doesn't define me, nor do I force it on anyone
else. I like my job but I try to be much more dynamic and not
defined by my occupation alone.
The things important in my life are cooking, classic movies (love
TCM), exploring new food and places, music (from hard rock to a
classical symphony), board games, trivia nights, sports, and who
knows what else. Destination Imagination is a major part of my
life, so big bonus points if you know what that is.
I’m really good at
Being an adventurous eater - the spicier the better!
Pushing out of my comfort zone
Sitting and listening - sometimes a good conversation is the best
entertainment of all
More things too...
The first things people usually notice about me
People say I'm super social and outgoing; I love meeting new
people. But I'm actually an introvert and can be quiet at times
too. My Jew-fro can be noticeable too!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - 1984 and Animal Farm
Movies - all James Bond films, A Field of Dreams, and Dumb &
Dumber. Also I love classic movies, nothing better than spending a
quiet night watching a classic.
Shows - Top Chef, Top Gear, Daily Show, Colbert, Last Week Tonight,
Who's Line Is It Anyway?, Agents of Shield, South Park, Simpsons,
Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Veep, Doctor Who
Music - hard rock, alternative, classical, jazz. Pretty open to
most anything, except country and rap (sorry!).
I love food and I love wine & beer. I am definitely a foodie
but try not to be a snob at all. To me, if food is cooked with love
then it's worth trying. That could be anything from a fancy
expensive dish to a greasy cheeseburger. Oh yea, I don't keep
The six things I could never do without
1. peanut butter 2. quality BBQ 3. Taco Bell (guilty pleasure) 4.
bourbon 5. a little adventure and spontaneity 6. Destination
Imagination (the best thing ever!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Currently, growing in my job and building a personal life for me
outside of work. I'm usually focused on the big picture but at the
moment, I'm trying to look more at the here and now. Gotta love
yourself before you can change the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm often working. Afterwards I am just looking for a night with
friends. A good movie, a food truck, a drink, whatever. As long as
it's fun and relaxing, I'm down.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a hopeless romantic who can be too shy for his own good. It's
ironic since I'm super bubbly and social in my professional
capacity. I still believe in chivalry and believe all people, women
or men, deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. Maybe I am
old-fashioned, but I believe romance is important in a
relationship. Not super crazy embarrassing, but it's
Oh, I just thought of something!...
I have never had coffee - ever! Don't judge! I have nothing against
it, just not for me.

Conversations start from a single word and you never know where
