My self-summary
Summering in DC. My ideal night out involves talking about humanity over drinks at a not-too-pretentious bar, then rocking out at the 9:30 Club.

If you care about such things, I'm an ENTP.

I like to eat and drink delicious things with people I like. Maybe that's you?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working on my PhD at Stanford, where I study politics, applied statistics and how to make a better cup of coffee. I'll be spending the summer in DC making polling better and hanging out with my best friends.

Mostly I'm looking for super awesome dates unburdened by long-term expectations.
I’m really good at
Finding good restaurants. Making people feel comfortable. Making dessert.

But not making cakes. My cakes aren't that great. Maybe you can be in charge of cakes?
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard. I have a rockin' beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite author is Haruki Murakami, but lately I've been reading some John Le Carre novels.

Some favorite non-Murakami books from the last few years are The Log of the S.S. The Mrs. Unguentine and The Peregrine.

I love finding new music, but there will always be a special place in my heart for hometown-heroes WILCO. Some other perennial favorites are the Decemberists, the New Pornographers, Neko Case, SLOAN and The Hold Steady. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Bleached, Sleater-Kinney, The Blow and White Reaper

I don't watch much TV, but I've really enjoyed American Crime Story, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica (both versions!) and The Americans.

As far as movies go, anything written by Charlie Kauffman goes to the top of the list (except for Anomalisa, which I didn't like). But I also liked I Am Love, Spotlight, Tokyo Story, Melancholia and anything from Werner Herzog, Errol Morris or Tarantino.

I liked The Big Short more than is reasonable.

Food is a big part of my life, and French food is my first love. But I also have a special affinity for Thai and Japanese. When I cook, I try to stay true to the classics or cook ingredients to their maximum potential. I try to stay away from gimmicks.

I have a lot of wine. Too much, really.
The six things I could never do without
My bike
Cuddles
Delicious coffee
Thoughtful friends
The women in my family
A good pair of headphones
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why is grad school so toxic? Why aren't there more artists in my life? My delusions of grandeur.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the little spoon.
