My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born on the west coast and grew up in the South (well, opinions differ: some say Oklahoma is the Midwest). I moved to NYC five years ago after law school at Michigan and I just moved to Park Slope, which was an excellent life decision. Although I'm beginning to wonder if I'm the only single/childless person in the neighborhood.

Personality-wise: Driven, but low-key. Nerdy. Reliable. Honest. Feminist. Sometimes serious, sometimes goofy. Someone recently described me as a "gentle soul," which I thought was nice. I'm very affectionate and open with my feelings and tend to like people who are similar in both respects. I think those close to me would say I'm a good listener, a loyal friend and a generally affable guy--at least I hope they'd say that!

Some things I like:
--Quality film, television, and books, and discussing all of the above over a quality beer.
--New York shenanigans: food tours, rooftop parties, karaoke, walks in the park, improv shows, etc.
--Games and puzzles of all sorts. I especially like modern board games (think something like Catan or Agricola--not Monopoly) and twisty puzzles (as pictured.)
--Spending time outdoors. I'm always up for a nice camping trip or a day hike, although it's a hard thing to accomplish in the city! If I could retire on a farm next to a river in Montana or something, I'd be a pretty happy camper. (Lame pun totally intended.)
--Spending time indoors. Many of my favorite activities are done inside, and I'm often pretty content to spend most of a weekend day at home. It's great to get out of the house (especially living in this city), but I'd like to find someone who likes the occasional lazy day at home with a good book.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I used to practice at a big law firm, but left to pursue a career in law school admissions, which I'm much more passionate about.

I'd also like to get better at cooking. We'll see how that goes--I've got a fire extinguisher handy.

Feeling very lucky to be in a great place in life right now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making guacamole. Road-tripping. Candy Crush. The Kevin Bacon game. Marathons (of the Netflix variety.) Being punctual. Red carpet fashion commentary. Finding interesting things on the Internet. Bar games and pub trivia.

Things I'm bad at, because that's kind of more fun: Understanding how music works. Figuring out who you are in all those group photos. Being a discerning wine drinker. Patience. Drinking water. Getting the duvet cover on my comforter. Going to bed at a reasonable hour. Being creative (if my user name didn't already give that one away.)

Smile? Blue eyes, maybe?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books I've enjoyed in the last year: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (whoa, so good), Middlesex, A Visit from the Goon Squad, King Leopold's Ghost, The Emperor of all Maladies, The Devil in the White City. I try to alternate between fiction and non-fiction.

Movies: So many! Vertigo, Annie Hall, Groundhog Day, Before Sunset, Mulholland Drive, Dr. Strangelove, Once, Back to the Future, Singin' In The Rain, The Lives of Others, Her, and lots more. I watched The Broken Circle Breakdown a few months ago and it absolutely wrecked me. Can't stop thinking about it.

Television: Also so many! The Sopranos, Lost, Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad, Louie, Veep, Game of Thrones, etc. I also used to love The Mole. Anybody remember that? With Anderson Cooper? And as far as reality tv goes, I'm newly sort of obsessed with So You Think You Can Dance.

Music: Classic rock, mostly. And I see Glen Hansard any time I can. Love that guy.

Food: I'll eat anything at least once and love anything that's delicious. Last year I drove up the Pacific Coast Highway eating nothing but tacos, which was as awesome as it sounds.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
--My cat, Minnie. We've been together since seventh grade and she's the best. I can't believe she's turning 20 this year!
--iPhone: it's like the 21st century swiss army knife.
--Diet Coke. It's delicious!
--The changing of the seasons. Is that silly? I always feel so happy at the beginning of each season.
--Netflix. Life changing.
--My friends. Cliche, but true. Lucky to have some amazing people in my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Am I doing the right thing?

Also: How does okcupid determine "personality traits," and why are mine so weird? What movie should I watch next? Why is brunch such a thing in New York? Do people REALLY work out that much, or is this just an okcupid thing?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
You know, doing the usual things people do on Friday nights. Either out with friends or at home curled up on the couch with a book. Lately I've taken a few classes at the Brooklyn Brainery. It's a great concept and the classes are a lot of fun!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
OkCupid made me a moderator. Not sure how that happened, but I love that they have some algorithm that told them I'd be just the kind of nerd who would enjoy such a thing.

it seems like we might have similar values, are ultimately looking for a long-term relationship, and you'd like to grab a drink sometime!

Sorry, non-New Yorkers--just looking for somebody local to date. Bonus points if you live in Brooklyn!
