I've always been pretty good at the responsible parts of life, be
it work, night school, etc. But really I'm looking to have some
adventures and find someone to share them and build a life
For fun, I play sports like softball or soccer in various leagues
around the city, or cycling and yoga. Recently I've got it in my
head to fly to Europe to do bike tours, and would like to share the
When not doing these, I'm taking classes to relearn French,
browsing the local library. My favorite museum is the Victoria and
Albert in London and I've spent about a year of my life in the UK.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a civil engineer who designs parks, roads and airports and get
to watch them get built. I usually work in Manhattan, but for now
I'm in a project office at the airport.
I’m really good at
Cooking, listening and finding humor in things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm more comfortable socially in smaller groups than large.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Kim by Rudyard Kipling is very much the novel of my cultural
heritage. Also, anything by John Le Carré or Douglas Adams. I'm
reading a lot of history now, having just finished a book about the
Jesuits, am in the middle of one about the Vikings, and after that
will be about the Trans Canada Railway.
TV: Psych, Mets games, QI and Masterpiece Mystery.
Music: Sigur Ros, The Darkness, The Kinks, M83, Faith No More,
assorted stuff I can mess around with on my guitar.
I like food from most cultures, good scotch and drink tea, not
coffee. I eat spicy and hope you do too!
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family are the big ones which I count as one for the
purposes of this section. Music and sports are the hobbies. A new
book and a good curry round it out.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The earth is about 4000 miles across. 75% of the atmosphere is
located 7 miles from the surface.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out in the city, making my way out of town, or spending a
relaxing evening doing nothing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My background is more diverse than you can probably tell from my
photos. I'm also hopelessly sentimental, even about things I have
no business being sentimental about.
You should message me if
You take "long walks in the park" seriously. You are a down to
earth person who thinks long train journeys sound exciting. It
helps if your idea of a day out includes something like hiking,
biking, dancing or a sport. Bonus points if you carry a WNYC tote
