My self-summary
JUNE 2015 UPDATE: I just relocated to Brooklyn, NY to accept what is sorta my dream job. So excite. I have a few friends in the city, but I'd like to make more social connections! So even if you don't think I'm boyfriend material, let's be friends if you're absurd/degenerate/analytical/off-beat/ever been compared to Jane Lane??

I joined this after reading an article that claimed online dating was the most efficient way to meet people. But I wrote this after a sufficient helping of rum. I edited it after a sufficient helping of gin.

INTJ

I like conversation, leftism, Marxism, drinking. "I find it hard to forgive people who compel one to think of small things in a small way."

I am a very serious boy, OBV
What I’m doing with my life
Graduated from Indiana University's main campus with a political science and economics double major (philosophy minor). Lived in DC for a while immediately after I graduated. Move to Indianapolis for two-and-a-half years. I've mostly worked for Internet or software companies, doing what can be vaguely described as analytics, or described as a mix of statistics and programming.

In NYC, I'm blessed to work as head of the data analytics department for a hopefully-profitable startup! I anticipate going back to school to pick up an advanced degree (sometime before 30), either in statistics, applied mathematics, data science, machine learning, or artificial intelligence.

I used to really want to be a writer, even got something published that was rather well received in a left-wing mag on Israel and the Palestinians my freshman year of college. Sometimes I still have good ideas for articles and even books; maybe I'll pick that up again sometime...

On a typical Friday night I am
This used to say "drinking excessively," but now it's more often making a complicated dinner with my Macbook on Netflix in the kitchen
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll try anything once
You should message me if
You're a rad chick with strong left-leaning tendencies, a (materialist) feminist, and you enjoy long walks on the beach with handsome Fabio types
