My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an artist, and if I keep writing it that way and introducing myself that way I've been told that I might actually start believing it. I am at heart a pragmatic problem solver, a creative out-of-the-box thinker with a penchant for overly complex vocabulary and a strong dislike of texting-style abbreviations. I am friendly but have few true friends, driven but not certain of my destination, and confounded by the process of threading sewing machines.

Meyers-Briggs-wise I am an INFP, which seems to fit. I am the oldest of four boys, I've driven cross-country twice, and given a choice I prefer Maker's Mark on the rocks. I grew up in Santa Barbara, spent some time in Israel, moved to upstate New York for college, spent a few years in New York City after that, then moved back home three years ago, and I'm contemplating where life will take me next. I picked up the habit of dipping french fries in ranch dressing from a summer spent doing opera in Arkansas, and I first discovered fried cauliflower (also best if dipped in ranch) from a summer in Naples, NY (where they make Manischewitz wine, for my fellow Jews). I got my first taste of fudge in Edinburgh, Scotland while performing at the Fringe Festival, and I first used a circular saw helping build bookshelves in an orphanage in Tijuana. I have a nail gun named Vera (and if you know what that means you can stop right here and shoot me a message) and my last car was named Wall-E. The desktop wallpaper on my computer is a photo of the grand canyon I took three years ago when I drove back out to California, and one of my favorite shirts says "You have died of dysentery" with the old green Oregon Trail image.

I once built a small hovercraft, and an air-powered gun that shot golf tees flighted with duct tape. Sadly, I was never able to combine them.

If I get another shot at life after this one I think I'd like to be Gene Kelly. But first, I'd like to finish being me, because I'm having a pretty great time so far.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend a lot of time searching for meaning, love, contentment, fulfillment, and calm. Work-wise I design and build theater sets and custom gym equipment (and pretty much anything else made of metal and/or wood), consult as an interior designer for companies and individuals, collaborate with my mother's art studio on institutional commissions for synagogues, moonlight as a photographer, and am a part-time cantor for a community shul group based in Montecito. In my "free" time I am an avid Israeli folk dancer, I'm working on my tennis game (and eventually I'll get back to golf and maybe even baseball if my shoulder holds up) and I'm slowly working up the courage to start writing again. I haven't quite figured out how it all fits together, but I'm enjoying the journey to find out. The current plan is to get a masters at some point and/or a degree in architecture. I'm not sure whether that's more to have the knowledge or more to be able to say "architect" after my name, Ted Mosby-style.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Problem-solving, especially when it comes to making complex cuts with woodworking tools and fixing wireless computer networks. I'm also really good at staying up all night without drinking coffee, while not hurting myself with the aforementioned tools. I give good back massages (thank you Jewish summer camp) and I am awesome at karaoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
if I have a microphone, my voice. Otherwise, probably my nerdy glasses, mismatched eyebrows, paint-spattered clothing (if I've been working), or that I'm kinda tall.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Books- Endless worlds of possibility and imagination just waiting to be set free? Sign me up.
2. Salt- I put salt, soy sauce, or parmesan cheese on a lot of foods, I wouldn't survive without it.
3. My camera- My memory is occasionally faulty, but nowadays photographs don't fade with time.
4. Music- At once my favorite means of expression and method of immersion in culture, place, and time
5. My glasses/contacts- I am almost completely useless without them
6. Hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How traffic jams happen. What the future will look like, and what I might create that could help shape it. How things work, and how they might be operated by tiny wooly mammoths. What I truly want out of life, what kind of people I want around me, and how best to own my decisions and needs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having dinner with friends or family, then tennis if the weather is good, a movie if it isn't, or if all else fails catching up on a tv show while reclining on an extremely comfy couch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was little I once caught a lizard and decided to see if it would be friends with the pet rat we had at home. So I put the lizard in the rat's cage, but they didn't want to be friends. I got the lizard out of there as quickly as I could and let him go outside, but I found him dead a few days later. I've felt guilty about it ever since.

You can properly differentiate between "affect" and "effect" in most situations.

You capitalize your I's most of the time, and believe that neither u nor r constitute acceptable parts of the English language without accompanying vowels and/or consonants.

You should definitely message me if you know all the words to the Gummi Bears theme song. Also if "You're killin' me Smalls" and "If you build it, he will come" arouse in you warm feelings of nostalgia.
