My self-summary
I like to think of myself as a clumsy mix of nerd, free spirit and, if I may, charisma. In spite of my tendency to string people along on a tall tale for some short term entertainment value (ex. telling my former roommate that the TV is voice activated and watch her try to tell it to "turn on Mad Men"), I do try to be genuine in the broader scope of things.

Aside from that I have lived in the city for 10 out of the last 11 years (escaped from Ohio) and about the same number of apartments/neighborhoods. Like many, I have gone through the stages of struggling artist, traveling salesman and fledgling diplomat (of sorts). Okay, perhaps not everyone makes that move to government, but you see where I'm going with this.

Lastly, I'll just add my hobbies of hanging out with friends over a drink or two, working out fairly consistently, humoring the public, and spending time with my dog-ter, Sophie.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the director here in the Northeast for Israel's Ministry of Tourism...it's kinda where Camp David meets Camp Anawanna. All jokes aside this is something that I worked towards for about a decade, so I'm quite passionate about what I do and happy with/proud of where I am in my career.

Other stuff: singer/song writer, project starter, art maker, funny video creator...
I’m really good at
Modesty. I am awesome at modesty!
The first things people usually notice about me
I've the face of a child.

What can I say? I eat a lot of preservatives.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Representative Sample: The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man, Airplane!, The Sun Also Rises, Office Space, Fight Club, (Colbert Report and Daily show used to be here😭) The Tipping Point, Where The Wild Things Are (book only), The Well Beloved and the Pursuit of the Well Beloved, all of the Dresden Files (up to date), The Sword of Truth series (nerd alert!), The Big Short, Game of Thrones, Homeland, Moby Dick

Music: Rock, jazz, indie, folk rock but will dance to anything, and yes, I dance.

Food: Various types of strong, black coffee, whiskey, rare steak, hot sauce (but not on said steak) and potent wasabi.

Blackened seasoning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to annoy the shit out of you!

Too soon?
On a typical Friday night I am
Out entertaining the fine people of this city with clever humor and witty, witty small to medium to deep af talk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My Bitmoji looks waaayyyy too much like me. Also, I have a Bitmoji...
You should message me if
You are goofy, smart and willing to give me a swift kick in the pants from time to time.

Dogs remind you of what is good in the world.

You want this to lead somewhere - somewhere where our intimate moments do NOT include a room full of blind folded naked people we just met. I'm cool with everything else.

You get that the paradox of choice with online dating is a trap to make all of us aloof yet desperate. Take a second. Give it a chance.
