My self-summary
I'm an easy-going guy, a creative type, and always looking for inspiration in art and travel. I like a lot of different things and can always find lots to do just walking around. I have a good sense of direction, but find that by getting lost or going a different route I often discover something interesting.

I am hoping to find a partner that is passionate, fun, creative, and easy-going. It would be great if you like art, music, and travel. I like being in a relationship, and I work hard at it -- I'm honest, open, and dependable.
What I’m doing with my life
Living near the water and walking to work, which i love. I'm a writer at a non-profit, which is a nice switch from working on more "corporate" projects. I have some creative projects that I work on in my off time.
I’m really good at
Parallel parking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. Some people notice a slight accent with certain words but it's nothing crazy. I grew up in the south but have lived in NYC and other places for more than 20 years.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As I read other people's lists, I think, oh, yeah, I like that too! So this is by no means comprehensive or always typical.

Travel: I'll just add this category because it's a favorite. I love Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Paris, Munich, Salzburg. Also London, Edinburgh, Bejiing, several places in the Caribbean, and lots here in the U.S. I still have many other places to go obviously. I just watched the Clooney movie The American and now I want to go drive around small towns in Italy!

Books: a favorite is called "Love in the Ruins" (it's funnier than it sounds!). Just read "The Devil in the White City" about the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and loved it. Also loved "You Shall Know Our Velocity!" Read Franzen's "Freedom," but I'm conflicted about it. Currently reading Americanah and liking it. Bonjour Tristesse (both book and film), Bright Lights, Big City. Favorite authors include: Faulkner, Fitzgerald, Steinbeck, Hemingway, Chabon, Borges, Mavis Gallant, McInerney, Chris Adrian, E.M. Forster, Lahiri, and many many many more.

Movies: Chinatown is an all-time favorite. More recent favorites include: The Edge of Heaven, Pan's Labyrinth (like del Toro's work in general), Encounters at the End of the World, Ghost World, Office Space, Dead Man, The Purple Rose of Cairo, The Big Lebowski (probably every guy has that listed), The Conformist (old Bertolucci), Rear Window, Good Fellas, Hot Tub Time Machine! (yes it's sophomoric, but it's really funny!)... this list goes on. I will go see pretty much anything, and like the Film Forum for showing old films and great new work.

Music: all kinds... rock, jazz, classical, hip hop, r&b, bluegrass, pop. Pixies, Smashing Pumpkins, Miles Davis, Hendrix, Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Talib Kweli, Vaughan Williams, Mahler, Jay-Z, The Fugees, Nickel Creek...

Food: Mexican, Ethiopian, Sushi, pub food.

All that being said, I never liked The Smiths growing up and now I love every song I hear of theirs, so who knows what goes on in our brains. In other words, everything is subject to change.
The six things I could never do without
I've been getting rid of lots of things over the past few years trying to simplify and it's nice although I still haven't perfected it.

Things I "wouldn't" want to do without:
- being near water
- family
- good friends
- the ability to be free to create
- chocolate
- passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
if my dog is okay; what's for dessert; lines from Seinfeld or Family Guy that make me laugh.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out to dinner, a museum or movie, or stay in and watch a movie and have a relaxing dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can whistle, but it looks kinda funny.
