I'm passionate about personal growth, in as many areas as possible.
Everything from working hard to improve character, to reading a new
book, to learning a new skill. I try hard to have this in mind as I
go through my day at work, on the road, when meeting new people,
and when spending time with old friends. I’d like to maintain the
life of a student forever: always learning, theorizing, and growing
from text and situation.
Getting dressed up and being overdressed everywhere I go is one of
my favorite pastimes. I love, really love, eating. I like going
out. I like staying home. I like the good life, especially since
text-messaging was invented. I enjoy reading the news, especially
recent developments in astronomy, science, or medicine. I take
"Nerd!" as a compliment.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently running operations for a financial firm in Beverly
Hills. I spend my free time learning, taking dance classes, hanging
out with friends, and traveling (Israel, Italy, Greece, Bahamas,

real name has not one, but TWO capital letters. Actually, people
don't necessarily notice that on their own and tend to spell my
Um, so I don't know . . . my rockin' sense of style? My values and
character? My enormous eyes? My balanced, well-rounded nature and
knowledge? My beloved, funny-looking pup?

The six things I could never do without
My sister, best friends, good food, internet, driving fast, and,
naturally, shoes. This is solely the internet version of my "could
never live without" list.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life and what to make of it.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nope, not gonna [sic] happen.
