I'm an easy-going guy who's learned to not taking things too
seriously (it took a while!) and to appreciate each day for what it
is. I'd love to meet someone who's got a cute and friendly head on
his shoulders who's passionate about teaching me all about him and
learning about my own quirks.
I am sweet, funny, and slightly insane.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently celebrated my 5-year anniversary of living in NY. I just
started a new job which I'm trying to navigate and am spending my
free time with friends, travelling (just got back from North Korea
in early October, 2010), going to the gym trying to improve my
squash game, and trying to stay out of trouble.
I’m really good at
executing plans, making things happen, and being efficient. I don't
take any day for granted and generally succeed at making the most
of it. I'm also pretty darn good at bridge and at squash.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I look exactly like a guy on Ace of Cakes - Geof Manthorne.
I'm stopped on the street at least once a week by fans of his - and
can only wish I was that popular.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite food is Greek (my background is Greek so I'm biased).
After that I like middle eastern and chinese.
For music, I love Latin music and am a big Queen fan. Also a big
fan of Madonna, Arcade Fire, George Michael, and INXS.
I should read more but I recently read Call Me by your Name - and
loved it. My favorite book is Jane Jacobs' Death and Life of Great
Growing up I didn't have the attention span for movies but now I
love them. I'm into indie flics and have a big thing for French
The six things I could never do without
My passports, my friends, my family, the Met opera, my blackberry,
and cheesecake (guilty pleasure).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I recently turned 30 and am curious/anxious/who knows about
what the next decade holds.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually convincing friends that it's OK to go to three boroughs in
one evening and settling on two.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I only get my haircut in a foreign country and always get a
picture with my barber.
You should message me if
there's room in your life for someone like me and if you're willing
to entertain at least some of my interests and want to get to know
more about me.
