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, cities, natural landscapes, bicep curls, baseball on the radio, alleys, maps, cafes, bookstores, ruins, coffee, tea, gardens, the Philadelphia Flyers & Phillies, boxing, puppies, graffiti, typography, cold beer & water ice in the summer, rye on the rocks, music, movies, crossword puzzles, suits, scarves, and plaid shirts.
What I’m doing with my life
Architect, urban planner and real estate developer. I also have a music blog that is pretty amazing.
When not doing those things, I am probably at the gym. I am down about 20 pounds and will soon achieve my dream of taking mirror ab selfies for dating site profile.
I’m really good at
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
"Just because she likes the same bizzaro crap you do doesn't mean she's your soulmate."
The Grapes of Wrath, Annie Hall, Arrested Development, Bob Dylan, pastrami on rye. Crime 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, Twin Peaks, noodles. The Essential Calvin and Hobbes, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Neutral Milk Hotel, empanadas.
The six things I could never do without
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
My 5 favorite Law and Order characters of all-time. Moving to Los Angeles. If I should get a tattoo. 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 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.
