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. 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 I feel like there's a common thread there...somewhere. Maybe?
Lastly, I'll just add my hobbies of hanging out with friends over a drink or two, working out fairly consistently, making people laugh, and - once I have her back in NYC - spending time with my dog, Sophie.
Other stuff: singer/song writer, project starter, art maker, funny video creator...

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 a good steak...that's just wrong) and potent wasabi.

Final note: Please, please take care of yourself. Not looking for GI-Jane here, but still...
