My self-summary
Actually, let’s start with you. You’re smart and ambitious. You’ve always been looking to grow as a person for yourself whether you were single or in a relationship. And you appreciate when you have a man in your life alongside you.

You’re not a cubicle girl (even if you happen to work in one, you don’t let it define who you are) and you’re not looking for a cubicle guy (I used to be surrounded by them).

You’re not crazy. (You know this line needed to be its own paragraph).

When you ask “what do you do?” it’s to make conversation and not to check off another box as you seek middle-class comforts from a guy. And you also have an answer for my follow-up to that question, “what charities or non-profits do you support or work with?”


Originally from Long Island and lived in NYC for the past 7 years, I am realistic while being optimistic and having seen a lot, I’m confident and not easily rattled which is why the humorous comments fly.

I am often able to provide new insights into what’s happening very soon after watching or listening intently.

And after hanging out with me, you will find a new way of seeing the world.
What I’m doing with my life
This year I am living at my edge as I freed myself from a decade-long career in consulting to fully pursue a passion I’ve had for a long time: leading and inspiring young people through a two-year commitment with Teach For America as a high school math teacher in Dallas.
So far it’s been the second-best decision of my life. It’s a great feeling to help people grow intellectually and creatively. And with an entrepreneurial streak, there’s every intention to do even more by starting my own education-related enterprise soon – either a school or a non-profit that advocates for the students I’m devoted to.

I’ve also been getting back into cooking a lot more for myself so you better be ready for an Iron Chef-type battle in the kitchen.
I’m really good at
Perceiving things that others don’t and in ways they never thought of... after making you laugh.

Emailing and texting with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation at all times.

Creating online dating profiles. You’re still reading this one.
In memory of my former career, I created this in response to someone challenging me to "create the worst profile ever without a dick picture."
The first things people usually notice about me
The sense of humor that betrays my captive expression.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I love eating out. A sizzling fajita plate can be just as great as hot fudge melting over ice cream. Looking forward to trying all sorts of BBQ around here!

Music: That’s for you to find out.

Shows: The Wire, Seinfeld, Breaking Bad, Louie, 24, South Park, Sunday News shows, and sports

Movies: The best TV shows have been a lot better than all but the very best movies over the past decade.
It’s a Wonderful Life, Glengarry Glen Ross, Boiler Room, Memento, Naked Gun, Airplane, The Usual Suspects, Terminator 1 & 2, Robocop, The Exorcist, Field of Dreams, The Matrix, Star Wars, the Wizard of Oz, Adaptation, Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather I & II
(Favorite movies = seen the most times. Best movies… that’s something we can discuss)

Non-Fiction: Story, Four Hour Workweek / Body / Chef, Happy Hour is For Amateurs, The Writer's Journey, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, The Lost Majority, Sperm Wars, Hilarity Ensues, The Moral Animal, Power Screenwriting, The Way of the Superior Man, The Lucifer Principle
Fiction: The Godfather, The Alchemist, Animal Farm

The above books were not just read leisurely; they were also underlined and asterisked and lingered over.
Six things I could never do without
The great works of art
My creative writing over the past 15 years
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I want out of life and how to help others rather than the negative things that are an inevitable part of living life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exploring Dallas
Meeting out with friends for a few drinks
Going to a comedy club
Going to a concert
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I took the Questions on this site pretty seriously.
You should message me if
You found the above interesting.
You want to show off Dallas and other parts of Texas in an exploratory adventure.
Also if you are just as comfortable and have as much fun at a wine bar as you do shooting zombies at a Dave & Busters. It's one thing if you're not into wine and can still have a good time, but if you can't kill zombies then you're of little help to me and to society very soon. Just look at what's happening with Ebola for God's sake!
The two of us
