My self-summary
Hi, I’m Jon. I’m originally from New York, but lived in different cities all over the country since graduating college before moving back a couple of years ago. The plan was to come back permanently, but I can’t say I’m 100% committed to that plan.

I’ve spent a tremendous amount of time in school. I had planned to be a professor, but after extensive exposure to that life I changed my mind (which is why I was able to move to New York City, rather than some random city somewhere around the globe that was short one postdoc). Instead, I work in data, which is apparently a thing these days.

I hadn’t taken a real vacation in a long time, so I went on three in the last three months of 2016. I visited Ireland, Northern Ireland, and the UK (that was one), Turks & Caicos, and Ecuador and Costa Rica. I’m pretty sure this means I’m sophisticated now.

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'm a data analyst crunching numbers in a creative agency. It's challenging work, but we have an office full of 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, cinnamon, garlic, ginger, paprika, hot sauce.

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

How to build a real community in this town, rather than a fragmented network of one-offs whose availability is limited to arbitrary things like part of the afternoon a week from Sunday or drinks and not food Tuesday night.
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.
