My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there! I'm Dave!

I love exploring the world with my own two eyes and not through a 4 inch screen. I love walking, biking, climbing, eating, gardening, and hiking.

I don't feel compelled to be constantly connected and can feel totally content reading in a park, enjoying my surroundings, and all the ambient noise. I don't yelp or use foursquare or any of that jazz. If I want to find out if a place has good food, I go inside it and eat! Tinder seems ridiculous to me.

I love to think big and take on crazy projects. I once built a raft with a large bouncy castle on top of it (PDF) for a friend's birthday party that could support the weight of about 30 people. We sailed it 3 miles down the Charles River outside of Boston, singing sea shanties and drinking beer. And last autumn, I co-organized Boston's First Annual Cranksgiving Bike Ride. Over 160 riders showed up and we collected over 2500 pounds of food for the less fortunate. I'm always looking for new big projects to take on!

I like sleep but I also realize that when your friend is having a party and there is a bluegrass band playing in their living room that is just starting to hit it's stride late in the evening, it's okay to stay up until 4am and enjoy the ride. I also have a soft spot for Beyonce dance parties.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
1) I work on the tech team at Business Insider, one of the best news websites in the world.

2) I help collect and re-distribute hundreds of books each month with ReLitNY, a NYC-based non-profit that I am heavily involved in. We focus on redistributing books in areas that are underserved by their local library or the neighborhood has recently suffered a library closure. Literacy is power!

3) Once a week, I help 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students in the LES review basic math concepts through fun math games!

4) I bike anywhere and everywhere, regardless of weather. I enjoy doing group rides with Times Up!, Transportation Alternatives, and the Boston Bike Party.

5) During the warmer months, I am an avid gardener and I volunteer my time with a multitude of community gardeners and ecological non-profits. I am also a certified NYC Citizen Pruner and can legally prune any tree in New York City.

6) In general, I do what I love and love what I do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1) Making "it" happen.
2) Making out.
3) Lifting up extremely heavy objects (bend at the knees, not at the waist!).
The first things people usually notice about me

FOOD: My goal is to eat only humanely raised white meats and seafoods, asparagus, kale, spinach, brussels sprouts, and other vegetables, and wine/beer. I stay away from food that contain ingredients with a number in it (FD&C Yellow No. 6, WTF?). That being said, I am definitely not opposed to the occasional french fries, fried calamari, or pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Physical affection / cuddling / sex
2) Bikes
3) Pictures of cats with fat stacks of money
4) Sriracha suace
5) Delicious beers
6) Impossible challenges to overcome
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Bikes.
Sex.
Gardening.
The upcoming technological singularity.
How to reduce my ecological footprint and divert items from landfills.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably doing something that involves biking, beer, music, and/or power tools.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was a real handful growing up. I'm sure I caused my mom more than her fair share of grey hairs but she supported me the whole way. She gave me the freedom to do what I wanted and to make my own mistakes but also the reassurance that if I got myself into more than I could handle that she would have my back. I think I turned out all right.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're emotionally available and up for adventure! Wishy-washiness blows. If you don’t follow your heart then we probably aren’t going to get along. I’d much rather do the wrong thing and be super happy than be righteous and boring and drab.
