In no particular order, a few things about myself. I grew up in the
area (lived in the city for 6 years now), and have an awesome group
of friends who I consider a second family. I love NYC but mak sure
not to get swept up in the rat race. I love homemade breakfast,
everything Larry David, and challenging myself. I hate cigar smoke,
people who take themselves too seriously, and unnecessarily large
umbrellas on crowded city streets.
What I’m doing with my life
I like to divide my time into a few buckets- work, play, and food.
I work at a bank, but try to limit that to a reasonable part of my
day. The gym is my 60 minutes of post work sanity and allows me to
over indulge a serious food habit. I like cooking but also love
trying new restaurants (definitely one of the best parts about
living in the city). For play, I enjoy spending quality time with a
group of close friends - skiing in the winter, beach in the summer
and just about everything else during fall and spring.
I’m really good at
I can pick a brunch spot like you wouldn't believe. I also can make
pancakes that put all those brunch spots to shame (if I don't say
so myself!). I also play really well with others and can probably
beat you in a pushup contest!
The first things people usually notice about me
You'll have to tell me when we meet for drinks.

Floyd, Springsteen, The Who), plus a few newer things thrown in-

Favorite Food: Great restaurants are one of the best parts about
living in the city. To that end, I'm definitely not picky. I'll eat
(almost) anything at least once.
The six things I could never do without

Clean sheets and a comfortable bed
Family and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next adventure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up with friends. Dinner. Drinks. Exploring the city.
Heading to the beach in the summer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Im terrible at singing. And I do it every morning in the shower.
You should message me if
You aren't high maintenance, you like the beach, if average just
isn't good enough, if you think life is just too damn short to not
take a few risks.
