My self-summary
Originally from Long Island, I've lived all over the U.S. (Austin, Berkeley, and New Orleans to name a few). After earning my doctorate in experimental psychology in San Diego, I moved here, leaving academia and fish tacos behind.

Now I'm in Prospect Heights, so I'm close to the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanical Garden, and Prospect Park.

I work in Soho. Have you seen Soho? It's really nice.

I like to bike or walk whenever I can, enjoy exploring neighborhoods and finding places to eat, drink, and talk. I read fiction, am prone to joining book clubs, and into movies too, especially if they have great dialogue or murder.

People on this coast are better at understanding my wry humor than west-coasters. Californians are easily confused. Strangely, sometimes people ask me if I'm from California, citing my sunny disposition. Don't let them fool you - my disposition is cloudy, with a chance of showers.

I'm an avid reader, an aggressive pedestrian, a social drinker, a dog-lover, and an iced coffee enthusiast.

My desk fans
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The mere idea of moving to an idyllic little town somewhere.

How to replenish my stock of friends who are available to do things, as lately my old ones' evenings are taken up by activities like raising children in the suburbs or never having lived here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Meeting you for a drink or meeting a friend for a drink or visiting a museum or biking around the city to release the workday before a night in streaming Netflix.
You should message me if
you...

...see the world differently than people from your hometown
...appreciate fiction
...are slimmer-framed
...are monogamous and want to make kids

Also, you take care of yourself in terms of diet and fitness. Evenings of bar food and cocktails are fun, but let's earn them.

Finally, you live in Manhattan or Brooklyn or somewhere convenient.
