My self-summary
A cynical optimist who is looking for an intelligent, affectionate, self confident woman.

I am a native New Yorker but have lived in China, South Florida, California, Denver and now Boston. I just moved here and I'm loving it so far.

Personality wise, I see myself as an introspective extrovert. Some days I want to carpe diem and others never leave my bed. My sense of humor is all over the place but sardonic and silly are my bread and butter.

I enjoy outdoorsy stuff, singing, museums, dancing, plays, running and exploring new places. I think I am a very good cook but at this point, the evidence points to the contrary.

My favorite place in the world is the Bronx Zoo. I went there almost every weekend with my dad when I was young. Now I have become both a man and a zoo aficionado.

My dreams include riding horseback across Mongolia and owning a Muntjac Deer. A dream date would start at a bar, transition to karaoke, include sitting on a bench by the water and end with eating at a diner.

I am looking for something serious out of this online dating thing.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to collect, and share, as many random facts as possible.

Professionally, working in renewable energy and clean tech. My job is great- trying to make the world a slightly better place.

I feel like I have my life together... I think.
I’m really good at
Karaoke, hand-holding, putting together ikea furniture and parallel parking. Also, singing while running or walking down the street eating pizza.

Watch out for my bad-ass dance moves.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I have great eyebrows.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I usually read non-fiction mostly about world history. The reading of multiple news sources is always apart of my day.

Movies: My taste really varies but I'm trying to watch every academy award nominated film. Kung-fu, Godzilla, Kurosawa films make me happiest. Nothing with sappy happy endings please.

Music: I could write about this for days. So to make a long story short I feel The Beatles are the greatest band of all time but I often rock out to Iron Maiden. I'm really into John Prine right now.

TV: Game of Thrones! Did I mention Game of Thrones?

Food: All food must be spicy.
The six things I could never do without
Diners
Oysters
The classic rock canon
Infomercials https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Mv1z1h30LI
A black cup of coffee
Affection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Are aliens real? What are the greatest albums of all time? Why do I still have so many things on my to do list? Why is CNN so terrible? What if I sleep for a few more minutes? What's for lunch?

Is this the most perfect cover ever?

On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with beers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I listen to kid rock when running.

Boston version: I don't care about baseball.
You should message me if
If you want to lay on the floor and listen to records. If you boogie down. If you DO NOT keep up with the Kardashians.
