My self-summary
Hi, I’m Jon. I’m originally from New York, so urgency and sarcasm are second nature, but moved to cities all over the U.S., so notions like taking it easy and being nice to people are familiar as well.

I’ve done more relocating within the U.S. than international traveling, but took 3 trips late last year (to the British Isles, Turks & Caicos, and Ecuador and Costa Rica) to figure out what I liked about briefly being far away. Turns out, many things, from physical activities and natural settings to cultural experiences and chance encounters, but maybe not buffets and all-inclusive resorts. Some of the highlights were hiking and drinks with an old friend by the English coast, meeting an amazingly generous Northern Irish couple, and speaking lousy Spanish while trying to purchase insect repellent in Ecuador.

So in a nutshell, I’m pretty sophisticated now.

I like words, numbers, and people, which is why I studied literature, math, writing, and experimental psychology. People tell me it's an unusual combination, but what can I say? It makes sense to me.

Anyway, I'm wry, perceptive, kind, and not gifted at writing about myself. I’m looking to date someone interested in a relationship and a future.
What I’m doing with my life
My job nominally involves interpreting data, but on occasion I need to be a personality psychologist or an art critic. It's challenging work, but we have an office full of puppies, pastries and art books nestled among coffee shops and cobble-stoned streets.
I’m really good at
Biking in NYC traffic, comic timing, ball sports, math, research.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Pale Fire, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, Wonder Boys, The New York Trilogy, Straight Man, Slaughterhouse Five, Into Thin Air.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Almost Famous, No Country for Old Men, Moneyball, Cabin in the Woods.

Fargo, Elementary, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Kanye, Weezer, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Phantogram, Metric.

Iced coffee, garlic, hot sauce, the occasional chocolate chip cookie, pescatarian things.
Six things I could never do without
Iced Coffee
Hot sauce
Good running shoes for urban walking & biking
Connective devices (iPhone, laptop)
Cutting boards
My desk fans
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The mere idea of moving to an idyllic little town somewhere.

How to spread liberal ideologies to rural America.

Whether to join Equinox.
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

...see the world differently than people from your hometown
...appreciate fiction
...are slimmer-framed
...can anticipate being monogamous

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.
The two of us
