My self-summary
Hi, I’m Jon. I’m originally from New York, so urgency and sarcasm are second nature, but have now lived in 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 than vacationing in the past, but went away 3 times since October, visiting the British Isles, Turks & Caicos, and Ecuador and Costa Rica. It was like a really fun series of experiments to figure out that my ideal vacation blends lots of physical activity (biking, kayaking, white-water rafting, whatever) with social and cultural elements (hiking and drinks with old friends in England, meeting an amazingly generous Northern Irish couple, speaking lousy Spanish while trying to purchase insect repellent in Ecuador).

I’m pretty sure this means I’m sophisticated now.

I tend to look things up. I’m academically trained, so I might even be good at it. This means I haven’t gone to a really bad movie in a long time, and if you’re wondering whether something is true, I’ll find out for you. Then again, I’m perfectly capable of not doing this. We can see that movie your friend assistant video edited (43 on Metacritic), and if you want a hot toddy when you're not feeling well, sure! (The placebo effect is real.)

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
I've translated a social psychology background into working with data in a creative agency. It's pretty challenging, but we have an office full of art books, puppies and pastries 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.
The six things I could never do without
Iced Coffee

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
you...

...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.
