Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've moved to NYC to work in finance and volunteer at the Prospect
Park Zoo (I can do a mean dance with a macaw).
I'm an assortment of places, experiences, and things. I appeared,
fully formed, from Oklahoma City and Lima,
I live in Park Slope and sometimes worry if the line between yuppie
and Patrick Bateman isn't a little blurry.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in finance, while figuring what all to be involved with. So
far I'm busily joining museums, picking an opera company, and
volunteering at the zoo. I'm also exploring all of the food of Park
Slope, so by next month I'll have my block covered.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told I tell a good ancedote. Managing data and middle
school students. Remembering random stories. Finding new places to
go and things to do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either that I'm tall or I've said something terribly offensive and
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Consuming and discussing media is one of my primary joys. I'm
always happy to go to the movies for the experience of going to the
or going to a bookstore. I've lived in NYC for less than
48 hours and my book collection is already growing...
I'm a sucker for Philip Roth
. Beyond that, recent
favorites include New York 1960 (Stern), Gang Leader for a Day
(Venkatesh) Skin (Jackson), Inherent Vice
My favorite directors are P.T. Anderson
. For 2013 my top picks so far are
Frances Ha and Fast and the Furious 6.
For music I'll try just about anything (including rap and country).
Right now I'm alternating heavily between Gergiev and D'Angelo. I
enjoy opera as well, if anyone under 30 wants to go the opera
, I'm game.
I love going out to eat, and look forward to discovering the food
of NYC. I'm also willing and able to travel almost anywhere if the
food is right. I've gone to Connecticut for food, which is far more
horrific than it sounds.
OKCupid doesn't have a place for art, but despite getting into art
via art auctions I always enjoy going to galleries and the Met. My
favorite artists right now are probably Gerhard
and Louise Lawler
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. News. I'm a junkie.
2. Media to enjoy.
3. Restaurants to go out to.
4. Architecture books and architecture to look out.
5. Ability to travel from time to time.
6. Movie theaters.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot time goes into economics
, politics, and architecture
Sometimes wondering if I can wander into an interesting building,
or if heckling real business cycle economists
get me banned from UChicago.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I eat quite a bit of foie gras.
