My self-summary
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 while I'm here. But mainly I'm trying to have fun.

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.

I 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 I'm not the type to talk your ear off about it or tell people they have to do it.

I like to go out on the weekends when I get the chance to, and generally I like the loungier bars, 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 and Golden Retrievers are my favorites, but Utonagans are pretty close.
What I’m doing with my life
Just starting up my new life in NY in financial services. It will be dealing 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, and NY seems lIke a good place for that. 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've also been planning a couple of adventure trips lately too.
I’m really good at
getting lost in my own head
The first things people usually notice about me
Definitely my size. I'm 6'4".

After that? Shoes probably. My workout shoes are usually pretty bright these days.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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. 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.
The six things I could never do without
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
Where to meet new people out here
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably out with my roommates at the bars. 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 not a very private person
