On the weekends, I'm perfectly content not getting on any subways and staying put exploring new bars and brunch spots in Greenpoint and Williamsburg or surfing Netflix from the comfort of home. Although I admittedly watch way too much TV, I also like being active - whether that's a rousing game night, a day at the beach, working out or just meeting up with friends for whatever.
I won't bore you with the typical live, laugh, love none sense. I'm sarcastic and a bit of a wise ass. I may accidentally offend you with a poorly timed joke. But at my core I'm a caring and passionate individual. I give 100% of myself to the people I care about and would do just about anything for them.
It's my dream job and I've been lucky to have it for a few years now. Every day at work brings new challenges, some that I've never encountered before even after years on the job. When things go well I can honestly say that the work I do helps people with problems they wouldn't be able to solve on their own.
I also recently graduated from Rutgers with a Ph.D. in political science. Yes, I earned my Ph.D. in my spare time. Ask me how! Since I already have my dream job I am not looking to become a professor but I am beginning work on turning my dissertation into a publishable book manuscript. Comments and suggestions from writers and editors are welcomed!
I'm also a Mets fan and a Rangers fan. I can't believe the Mets resigned Cespedes!
Books: Working Stiff by Judy Melinek, Home Style by Richard Fenno, if you want to see the kind of writing I do
Movies: Fight Club (and this associated video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZwsKVL6JfM), Big Fish, Death to Smoochy; More recently I recommend Time Lapse, which should still be on Netflix, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BzYpF24LpY
Shows: Making a Murderer just became my new favorite. Over the last few years, House, Dexter, The Office, 30 Rock, Cosmos, Breaking Bad, and I'm sure a few others I'm forgetting
Music: Billy Joel, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, anything by any member of Genesis. Pretty much anything with a good piano or keyboard in it.
Food: I'm not a picky eater. I'll try anything once.
