I live near the Ghostbusters headquarters (the exterior in the movie), and I'm quite proud of that. I'm ambitious and hard working, but definitely within reason. I'm pretty sarcastic, laugh at inappropriate times, and lack a filter. I love to work out, and it's a big priority in my life. It's hard for me to avoid quoting The Big Lebowski or Point Break (the original, of course) in conversations. I'm open-minded and intellectually curious, and I enjoy discussing anything from the deepest philosophy to the most inane observation. I love the outdoors, never use "lol", and I have a really hard time sleeping without a fan running. Finally, I think razor scooters should be outlawed.
What I’m doing with my life
In-house structured finance attorney. Boom!
I’m really good at
Choosing the fastest line at the grocery store, being early, carrying heavy stuff, finding my way around, awkward hugs, clotheslining skateboarders, useless and useful trivia, and making Duane Reade umbrellas last.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I'm in my lawyer disguise, it's probably the volume of my voice. If I'm in a t-shirt and/or shorts, then it's definitely my tattoos. If I'm wearing a sombrero, then it's that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love to read and pretty much only read literature. Blood Meridian, Infinite Jest, Slaughterhouse-Five, As I Lay Dying, A Confederacy of Dunces, and Wolf Hall/Bring Up the Bodies are some favorites.
Movies: I love movies and have so many favorites from Goodfellas to The Lives of Others to Caddyshack to Commando.
Shows: I have a hard time keeping track of all the shows out there, but The Wire is my all-time favorite, followed by Six Feet Under, Rome, Veep, Curb, Breaking Bad, Deadwood, Veep, and Portlandia.
Music: I enjoy everything from classical to Led Zeppelin.
Food: I love trying new restaurants. I'm an omnivore and will eat almost anything. Please don't dare call me a foodie.
I'm a rabid NPR listener. This didn't really fit it any of the categories.
The six things I could never do without
1. a fan (see above)
2. a back scratcher
3. the gym
4. fresh air
6. Fresh air once in a while
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Deep metaphysical issues like: What's for dinner? How many hours will I get to sleep if I go to sleep right now? Why do people buy food at Starbucks? What's Snapchat? Why is the Oxford comma dying?
On a typical Friday night I am
Being mistaken for Ryan Gosling. That's a joke. I'm usually out or in, like all New Yorkers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like leftovers, and I prefer to pickup my takeout rather than have it delivered (the idea of this seems to drive some people crazy).
You should message me if
You appreciate sarcasm, you possibly snort when you laugh, you have at least some interest in fitness/health, and you're cool with tattoos. That's it.
