My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Editor's note: This profile is very out of date. I do still love puppies though.

I'm fun(ny), serious, traditional, progressive, social, independent, anxious, calming to others, a.k.a. the left wing Ron Swanson. I dream of new cities and political economies, but wish that men still wore suits everyday, held doors and gave up their seats on the subway. I am an only child, but hate to be the center of attention. In other words, I CONTAIN MULTITUDES!

Lover of Philly, Lower East Side, cities, skyscrapers, theory, subways, public spaces, alleys, architecture, geography, maps, cafes, bookstores, ruins, coffee, tea, farmer's markets, community gardens, the Philadelphia Flyers & Phillies, boxing, puppies, graffiti, typography, cold beer & water ice in the summer, rye on the rocks, long walks in new neighborhoods, music, movies, crossword puzzles, suits, scarves, and plaid shirts.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I started towards a Master of Architecture last Fall, now halfway done. It is insane, overwhelming and masochistic. But, what doesn't kill me only makes me stronger, or something like that. Seriously though, it is exhilarating to know I am on the right path.

In the recent past, I received a Master in Urban Planning; worked on the last installment of MoMA's "Issues in Contemporary Architecture" series (you could see my name in MoMA! Real name, not OkCupid username unfortunately); was assistant to the directors of a Soho space dedicated to researching and talking about the future of cities. In the way past, I started a real estate investment business and worked as a freelance culture writer.

In the immediate past, I found my 99% enemy on here, which has led to an existential crisis.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening to others, writing essays, sleeping in without guilt, giving advice, not following my advice to others, making people feel comfortable, getting other people's pets to love me, copyediting, overthinking, crossword puzzles, fighting for what I believe in and most important of all, Erotic Photo Hunt.
The first things people usually notice about me

Glasses, style, small ears? Not lying about his height on a dating site profile? I have no idea.

Thanks OkCupid robots, now I'm going to be completely self-conscious every time I meet a woman, wondering what she first noticed about me. NOT COOL.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The Grapes of Wrath, Annie Hall, Arrested Development, Bob Dylan, pastrami on rye. TCrime and Punishment, All That Jazz, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, The Smiths, ramen. Delirious New York, Mean Streets, Mobb Deep, Seinfeld, knishes. The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Talking Heads, Shark Week, noodles. The Essential Calvin and Hobbes, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Neutral Milk Hotel, empanadas.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My books, coffee/tea (hot and iced), a comfortable bed, a great city to explore, music and a nice suit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My 5 favorite Law and Order characters of all-time. Moving to Oakland. If I should get a tattoo. Utopia, gentrification, planning, architecture and their intersections. What color my selectivity is. Finally, and most important of all, what the hell does Curvy mean on this site?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not attracted to or in love with Tina Fey/Liz Lemon. I don't listen to Radiolab or This American Life. I don't read the New Yorker. I'm unable to grow a full beard, as mine doesn't connect in the key area next to the lips. I am not a nerd or secret nerd or nerd at heart. That appears to eliminate my chance with nearly every girl on OkCupid.
