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 finishing a doctorate in experimental psychology a couple of years ago, I left academia behind and moved from San Diego to here.

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 not-infrequent sarcasm 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 overcast.

I'm an avid reader, an aggressive pedestrian, a social drinker, a dog-lover, and an iced coffee enthusiast.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a data analyst crunching numbers in a creative agency. It's challenging work, but we have an office full of puppies, snacks and champagne nestled among coffee shops and cobble-stoned streets.
I’m really good at
Research, ball sports, math.
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.

Game of Thrones, Fargo, Elementary, Breaking Bad, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

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

Coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, garlic, ginger, hot sauce.
The 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 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 (but recent Fridays have also seen me catching trains & planes for holidays and weddings).
You should message me if
you...

...are monogamous and want to make kids
...see the world differently than people from your hometown
...don't confuse being polite for being kind (though you may appreciate both)
...appreciate fiction
...are slimmer-framed

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.
