Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New Yorker born and raised transplanted to the West Coast... you
can take the boy out of the city but you can't take the city out of
I've travelled heavily since leaving NYC at 19 - I lived over in SE
Asia for 5+ years, travelled through South and Central America,
spent about a year in Europe and have tramped through all 50
states... but these days I'm more about putting down roots and
since the nineties I've more or less made SF my home.
I still try and take a month off every year to go places I've never
been before though...
I like to think that I'm putting my Anthropology degree to work -
but somehow I never get around to writing up any of my 'fieldwork'
nowadays I like to ride my motocycle, listen to jazz, dance to punk
or funk, disco or ska, climb high places and things, drink good
coffee, read the NYT, hang out with my friends, and eat good
Truth is, I'm a very WYSIWYG kind of guy. not much patience for
pretense here, but I'm a many layered type (as I'm sure you are
too) and if you want to get to know me better I suggest we chat.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work a lot these days and I really enjoy what I do - but I also
dig the fact that it lets me have some good chunks of free time to
devote to my personal projects - like enjoying myself and trying to
make the world less shitty.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Paying attention to the person In front of me
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my schnoz, my eyes, my attitude.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In absolutely no particular order: Jorge Louis Borges, Hemingway,
James Gleick, Bill Bryson, Tim Cahill, Hunter S, Turgenev, Nikolai
Gogol, Cormac McCarthy, Patrick O'Brian... and almost anything
about Ancient Rome.
The Royal Tenenbaums (and everything else by Wes Anderson), all the
Coen brothers' movies - but most especially the earlier stuff -
Blood Simple, Miller's Crossing and Raising Arizona, Breakfast at
Tiffany's, To Have and Have Not, Casablanca... I kinda have a thing
for sci-fi too: Blade Runner (Director's Cut ONLY), Alien and
Aliens, Original Star Trek, Star Wars and Empire (but never for
minute the abominations Lucas shat out 20 years later)
Be-Bop and Big Band Jazz, Punk and Post Punk, Mozart, Bach and
Haydn... This list could go on and on - I have eclectic but very
definite tastes in music...
Art Nouveau and Art Deco (and please know the difference)
architecture stimulate my creative juices.
Gothic cathedrals blow my mind also.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
At one time or another in my life I've had to do without one or
another or all of the things I thought I could never do without, so
I guess the answer is: there is nothing I could NEVER do
But perhaps I'm over-thinking the question, so in the spirit of
things - I PREFER to not do without: friends, family, coffee,
books, music, and that's it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
cosmological questions, my cats behavior, emergent properties of
complex systems, MMA, and My Next Big Idea.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
nothing typical about me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have cats - and I baby talk to them... sometimes.
