My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE: I'm moving to Fairfax in March 2015. No time to update my profile. Drowning in boxes. See you all soon!

If I could change anything about myself, I'd be a sassy, fast-talking reporter. Preferably in black and white in the 1940's.

Or if time travel does permit, I'd like to be a Brooklyn Dodgers fan in the 1940's and 50's. In Brooklyn, of course. But only until 1957.

Of course, those aren't dire needs. Life is pretty great at its best and not so bad at its worst for me. If someone did grant me a wish, I would probably ask to heal the planet so I can keep enjoying it. (Don't gag. It's true.)

I love reading, the theater, getting out, staying in, museums, talks, cooking, walking, cycling, etc, etc, etc.

I'm painfully aware of how much I must sound like everyone else on this site, but shrugging my shoulders about it too. At least there's no yoga shot. I hear those are big with women on this site.

I'm not spiritual as I don't believe in spirits. I'm definitely not religious. But I have convictions and a strong emotional investment in humanity at its best and worst. That's a glass of wine conversation.

I'm excited about my new venture of starting a NYC branch of a West Coast UX shop. I also have been doing this for some reason...I suppose fun. Definitely not for money. Potentially to prove a point but I'm still waiting for one to become obvious.

I have two great dogs who provide me with endless amusement. I also own a horse but don't worry...he's not allowed on the furniture.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exploring NYC.
Trying to find shorter routes to the country.
Working for the man while still consulting for a cause.
Riding horses.
Spoiling my dogs.
Reading The New Yorker.
Doing things listed in The New Yorker.
Occasionally lying about having done things listed in The New Yorker.
Reading whenever I can and feeling guilty when I cannot.
Hiking, biking, jogging...all with enthusiasm and none particularly well.
Liking my existing career. Thinking about new careers. Being generally confused about my career.
Cooking beef. (I just bought a quarter side of beef and I'm not just saying that to attract men. I'm just saying, y'know, I have a freezer with 200 lbs of delicious, locally raised, organic beef in my apartment. That's all.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Listening
- Dressing up
- Dressing down
- Appreciating the under appreciated while still cleverly mocking the ridiculous
- Finding cool sh*t to do
- Traveling the world by backpack
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Other media:
Where the Hell is Matt?, Christian the Lion, those 2 kids in China lip synching, The New Yorker, NYTimes, any digital media where the masses somehow get together to prove, change or define something established, TED, Between Two Ferns, Car Talk. NPR in small doses, although I can perfectly time turning off and on the radio to avoid listening to the morning Perspective. Blech.
Anything from the overly complex to the superbly cheap and simple that's made with love and talent.
Totally varies. I like so many different types and I can honestly say I have a good ear for quality. Sometimes I can listen to music all day...other times I wish I lived during an era when one only heard music once in a must have felt incredible. I'd like to see and truly appreciate the Ring Cycle before I die.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My mutts
Riding horses
An honest and effective government (uh oh)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How happy I am to be back in NYC after having lived in the Bay Area for 2 years. I loved so much about that part of the country (especially the outdoors) but I'll take a cold NYC over a warm anywhere else any day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out with friends / exploring the city. Saturday nights I'm upstate with the horse, so Friday is my "urban weekend night".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are open to friendship or dating.

If I'm not your type I sincerely hope you find what you're looking for. Good luck and enjoy the adventure!
