My self-summary
After making the conscious decision to enact a tactical retreat from the NYC dating scene (it really fucking sucks doesn't it?) and focusing almost entirely on opening up my own business (coffee roastery) I'm back because I enjoy strangers making each other feel like shit I guess? Half kidding aside, I do sincerely believe there are decent human beings out there that are worth wading through this shit to meet so here goes again.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently a co-owner and head roaster at a small roasting company I recently started with two good friends and I couldn't be happier with our progress these last months. Before I started my business I worked in the NYC coffee scene for many years as a barista, manager, trainer, and technician. With that being said I don't neccesarily think that it's a dominating feature of my identity, so quite frankly I don't give two shits if you think coffee is the worst beverage on the planet- it doesn't neccesarily preclude the possibility of us getting along; tea-drinkers- don't hesitate to say hello!

Other than that I consume a lot of media and write fiction in my free time.
I’m really good at
Telling stories
Taking things apart and putting them back together
The first things people usually notice about me
My baby blues (thanks gramps)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I cycle through bands and genres pretty rapidly, but here's whats on my Spotify playlist at this very moment: Smashing Pumpkins, Redneck Manifesto, Toe, Wilco, Radiohead, The Smiths, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sigur Ros, The Most Serene Republic, This Town Needs Guns, The National, My Bloody Valentine, blah blah blah blah

Top 3 movies right now (subject to change at a whim):
The Third Man
Being John Malkovich
Blade Runner

For TV, it's all the usual suspects- anything HBO puts out, AMC's lineup the last few years, some network comedies and dramas (I think Lost is a flawed masterpiece and The Sopranos is the best show ever written).

I could name drop a whole shitload of authors to sound cool and learned but I just want to say this: Vonnegut is the fucking man

I might not enjoy everything I try, but I will eat literally anything (hell if I was drunk enough you might be able to convince me to go to that restaurant in queens that serves testicles and brains and intestines and whatever else.
Six things I could never do without
Naps that are slightly too long to be healthy

Cliche responses to this question
I spend a lot of time thinking about
AI and the technological singularity
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably sleeping because I work on Saturday mornings. On a typical *Saturday* night I'm usually trying to organize a quiet night in with a group of people I genuinely care about. I'm turning into an old fart.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My last profile was described to me as 'aggressively snarky' and really wasn't doing me any favors, so I completely re-wrote the whole thing so I didn't come off like such a wanker. It hurt my pride.
You should message me if
Message me if you actually feel like taking a chance to spend a little bit of time to meet up with a total stranger and maybe making something good come of it. Seriously.

I also hate farting around in these messages for too long, so don't be shocked if I give you my number right off the bat (texting is just more convenient).

And at the risk of sounding too forward, I'm on here because I want to go out on dates and interact with people in real life, so if you're cool with that then give me a holler!
The two of us
