What I’m doing with my life
I started using online dating just shy of a year ago after a string of long-term relationships that didn't seem to work out. Like most, at first, I was extremely skeptical of the idea of finding dates through a dating service. But, one of my close friends convinced me to sign-up and only after a few weeks in, online dating became one of my greatest assets for broadening my social circle. I went on some pretty wonderful dates, met a lot of great people in the city, and really got the chance to get to know myself better. Online dating sites don’t just give you the traditional experience of dating; they help you learn what really works and what doesn’t, and really quickly. I don’t think I’ll ever get over how magical a scientifically calculated algorithm can be, and for that, I find this to be truly amazing.

I completed my undergrad at NYU studying Economics and Chemistry (Yes. I am a nerd), in hopes of one day finding the missing link between the social and hard sciences. Specifically, I'm interested in the field of game theory, applied mathematics, and social/behavioral sciences. For two years, I worked at a company in NJ as a practitioner using neuroplasticity to treat patients with ADHD, autism, dementia, Alzheimer's, and TBI/concussions. The summer after I left my job, I went back to the city (mostly in Brooklyn & Manhattan), spending my final weeks in NYC before moving to Cleveland for grad school.

Now, I work mostly for the clinical side of healthcare: doing clinical research in the Neurology department, running my own non-profit against child obesity, and dabbing in the consulting industry here and there. I'll be graduating from my graduate program at Case Med the end of this summer. I'm still figuring out where I'll be this Fall - it's honestly a toss-up between NYC, SF, or even overseas in London, Amsterdam, and Spain. I'll just have to wait and see where my next chapter takes me.
I’m really good at
analyzing using logic and reasoning, deduction, and math-related things.

Literature: NYT, WSJ, and any current bestsellers

I absolutely love reading. I'll pretty much read anything that anyone recommends to me (and it's not limited to books). If you have a good book, article, column, comic strip, etc... I'm always up for a suggestion.

Food: Italian, Mediterranean, French, Thai, Japanese, Korean, Afghan, homemade Chinese, and an assortment of desserts that I indulge in on occasion.

Music: I'm a classicist at heart.
The six things I could never do without
the 5 basic needs, the ability to feel emotions, meaningful conversations, healthy and unhealthy obsessions, time, and second chances.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
if there is more good than evil in this life. And, whether or not I give due credit to the potential of math and science, and its current capabilities to significantly impact our world.
On a typical Friday night I am
meeting up with fellow OKC members, going out with friends, at a bar, wandering the streets of NYC, relaxing at home watching my latest TV series obsession, staying in and studying up, or back in Jersey desperate for some unnerving rest.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll raise you 4.

I dance on my commute to work.

I fall in love swiftly.

I need a full-time secretary to handle my OKC account... (I respond in bulk.)

And, I eat my candy the way sick Americans pop pills.
You should message me if
you think we would be compatible if we met.

Cheers to you all and hope those in search of love find it.
