My self-summary
One part Charlie Day, one part Nick Offerman, one part Larry David. You will not be bored.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a structural engineer who works in an office of architects to make sure their buildings stand up. To counter balance the 8 hours a day I'm at a desk on a computer or red marking blueprints I try to stay active outside the office. I train at a gym most mornings and try to get to the mountains as often as possible in the winter to get in some snowboarding. In the spring/summer/fall I like biking around the city and people watching in the park while sipping coffee.
I’m really good at
Telling stories, problem solving, sarcastic humor, telling it like it is, cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor, my style, and the eccentric company I keep.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Has be spotted on a bench in Washington Square Park with a Quad-Tall-Americano in one hand and and the following in the other:
Anything Chuck Klosterman (Sex Drugs and Cocco Fuffs, IV), anything Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club, Choke, Rant).

Lately leisure reading has had to take a back seat to a 93-day study guide for an 8 hour professional engineering certification exam I have to take.

Movies:

unique comedy and quirky characters:
Wes Andersen (Rushmore, Tenenbaums)
Coen brothers (Fargo, Big Lebowski)

witty dry British dialogue:
Guy Richie (Lock Stock, Snatch)

music depends on the situation but some favorites:
'60's Reggae/Rocksteady (Desmond Dekker, Toots & the Maytals)
'70s British Punk (The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers,
Indie Dance (La Roux, Passion Pit, Bloc Party, The XX, Phoenix)
New Wave (Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Berlin, Blondie)
Electro (Boys Noize, Chromeo, Justice, MSTRKFT, Daft Punk)

Food:
Eggs, meat, vegetables repeat.
I cook a lot but some favorite spots in the city include: Varga, Fette Sau, Sabrina's, and Morning Glory.
The six things I could never do without
Good Coffee
Good Music
Good Movies
Good Whisky
Good Friends
Good Cuddles on a cold winter night

In fact written out that looks like one perfect day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The decline of western civilization. People's poor outfit decisions. How easily our country's citizens are fooled to vote against their own best interests. How I will take advantage of the glorious weather outside my office window when my work is done.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sipping on some whiskey or a craft porter at happy hour calling it an early night most (but not every) weeks. Saturday is more flexible.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a pretty open book. Ask away and I'm sure I'll be happy to answer anything...... except discussing that one incident in Mexico.
You should message me if
-you are interested or amused by any of the above.
-you appreciate good coffee in the morning and good whiskey at night.
-you agree brunch is the best meal
