My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have realized most people don't read these in the first place. I used to have a full essay here, but I'll shorten things up and make life easy for anyone who actually is bothering with the whole reading part.

I just moved to New York and have settled into the East Village from Minnesota. Dealing with a few culture shocks, but I'm finally feeling settled in. I'm hoping to make some new friends and go on some dates now that I'm here to liven things up a bit. Being new to the city can be a little intimidating.

As far as education, I just finished at UW(isconsin) with a double major in finance and entrepreneurship, plus a certificate in Middle Eastern studies (half Iranian, and less than halfway capable of speaking farsi).

I'm working as an analyst for an investment bank now that I'm here.

I used to care a lot about exercise and fitness, but these days I mostly do it as a way to justify eating all of the great food out here. I like to go to the gym, but its not a big part of my identity either.

I like to go out on the weekends when I get the chance to, but I prefer a lounge sort of bar over the densely packed ones where I can't hear people. But I also am totally alright with cracking open a book or putting on a show and relaxing. I think I can pretty easily be called an open person, and I'm always happy to make new friends too.

For those who are about to ask, that is my family's dog, not mine. But I am wanting to get my own dog in the near future. Definitely prefer big dogs over the tiny ones. Bernese Mountain Dogs (going to get one and name him Leeroy) and Golden Retrievers are my favorites. But Utonagans are beautiful.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just starting up my new life in NY in financial services. It will be interacting with hedge funds mostly. I figure it's not the place to name the company publicly, but message me and I'll be more than happy to tell you who it is for.

Overall, I'm trying to broaden my horizons in terms of the things that I am interested in and my passions. I want to try a lot of things and really get my feet wet. I think having a routine just gets so dull and boring. Why waste a life on that? So if you're game to try new things (like hang gliding, blowing glass, or even just cooking), you'll have my attention, especially if you're outdoorsy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
getting lost in my own head
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Definitely my size. I'm 6'4".

After that? Shoes probably. My workout shoes are usually pretty loud these days. I also wear a hat way too often. But I'm phasing that out haha.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
For books, its been a while since I read for pleasure (college textbooks don't exactly nurture the desire), but lately I've picked up Martian and am working through it, and it isn't bad!

For movies, I'm pretty easy to please. One of my favorites is still The Prestige. Very worth watching if you haven't seen it. Rush is another great one.

For shows, I'm crazy about Arrested Development and Modern Family. Archer and American Dad are pretty funny too. Top Gear obviously (I'm a guy, after all). And Minnesota Sports too! Really though, what I don't like are comedy shows that pick the low hanging fruit too often (looking at you, Big Bang Theory). Otherwise, again I'm pretty easy to please.

As for food, I like Persian, Mexican, Italian, and...well pretty much anything. I didn't like fish for a long time but I'm working on that. Still don't care for calamari. Creeps me out so much.

And last is music. Lets see. I kind of bounce all over the place really. Haven't yet found much I care for with country, but I'm not going to reject it just because its country either. All time favorite single song is Iridescent. Lately I've been more interested in classical and piano music when I'm not working out. Ludovico Einaudi has been a staple recently.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, good food, a gym membership, a fun car...ummmm....a tv? And my hat! I wear it too often.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where to meet new people out here
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably out with my roommates at the bars. One thing is that I definitely prefer a more chill place to have a good beer or some whiskey with friends, but I can go for a night at the louder places occasionally too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
part of me doesn't like being so tall.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are the type of person who doesn't bother much with chit chat. I'm a very thought-based person, and intellectual stimulation is something that I put a lot of value into.
