My self-summary
Cambridge by way of Philadelphia, Tel Aviv and Johannesburg. Moved here after finishing grad school. I'm the guy that will organize a party on a whim, and find the best festivals in summer and cool ski sites in winter. I like going out as much as staying in, cooking together a great dinner with good wine and watching a movie.

I'm physically active and enjoy playing soccer, volleyball and cross country navigating (although haven't done that since my military years in Israel). I'm getting over an ACL injury so a bit lower intensity in the last few months, but getting back to shape.

Pretty tired from trying to meet people in the bar scene, and have heard great stories about this website.
What I’m doing with my life
Originally a pharmacist, a dj and a bartender, so I like mixing stuff and making people happy while doing so.

Like half of Boston, I work in healthcare/pharma. Recently started a new job in biotech strategy.
I’m really good at
Discovering places through walking, quoting movies, holding my liquor, naming tunes by first notes, people watching and so much more...
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent, and later my silly one liners and my lack of tact :-)
My accent makes for a fun bar game, I think less than 25% of people can guess where I'm from based on just my looks and my accent.
Also, almost everyone has mentioned that I defy stereotypes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Requim for a dream, the princess bride, snatch, pulp fiction, from dusk till dawn, the goonies, coming to America (basically all of Eddie Murphy's earlier films), Hot Fuzz and lots of British stand up shows

Music: Most things, but mild dislike for country and heavy metal

Books: I would be here all night if I started this...
The six things I could never do without
music
humor
human connection
wit
creativity
family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How dating apps have destroyed romance
On a typical Friday night I am
No typical night, but more likely out than in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may or may not have used my pop culture knowledge from Bruce Willis movies to pass an interview leading to my current job :-)
You should message me if
You would date yourself.
You believe that you are among the first to come to mind when guys ask your friends if they have a cute, funny interesting friend to introduce them to.
You have your shit together and are at least somewhat career-driven - independence is sexy!
You have an open mind, are interesting in meeting new and interesting people and well, if you feel an urge to ;-)

I prefer dog people over cat people - being very allergic to cats tends to cause this preference...

I also prefer to meet someone that has at least a general sense to where their life is heading...
