My self-summary
Moved to NYC Jan 2012. Could not be happier with my decision.

I was born and raised in Texas. Of course this means I lived on a ranch and had a couple of oil derricks in my backyard. I also rode a horse to school and own 5 handguns. Only the first sentence is actually true.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in asset management, but because the company I work at is technically a non-profit, I can somehow sleep better at night.

I try to exercise as much as I can, but that hasn't been working out too well lately. I play a variety of sports like basketball and tennis, occasionally do yoga, and on rare occasions, I hit the gym.

Looking for someone down to earth (aren't we all), open minded, and intellectually curious. Yeah, I've been in New York for the last 3.5 years, but I can assure you, I'm not looking for the next best thing :-)

I'm a big fan of exploring the world as well. Can't decide if I want to go to Cuba or Turkey for my next trip. Maybe you can help me decide?
I’m really good at
Meeting people. Getting along with dogs. Awkward situations. Trivia (I dominate history/geography). I'm also the master of TMI on a first date.
The first things people usually notice about me
That my fly is open.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Das Kapital by Karl Marx (it was 2500 pages long so I pretty much forced myself to like it). Does the Economist count? I initially just bought it to look smart at the airport but it turns out they have a lot of insightful articles.

Movies: American Beauty, Pulp Fiction, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, and lots of documentaries.

Shows: Peep Show, Arrested Development, King of the Hill, The Office, Beavis and Butthead.

Music: Live jazz, alt rock/grunge, classic rock, anything old from the 60's to the 90's, and some random new stuff

Food: I literally like all kinds of food but I've been eating a lot of Indian lately. I'm from Texas, so of course, I LOVE steak. I'm also a scotch connoisseur (the only one I know who isn't an old white guy).
Six things I could never do without
People Watching
My busted ass iphone
Google search
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who actually shares their okcupid profile on facebook.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a dive bar, jazz club, or sitting at home nerding out reading a book or watching tv. Totally depends on how tired I am from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate cheese.
You should message me if
You feel like it?

You play tennis and want to play a match.

You're more of a dog person than a cat person.

You're actually looking for a relationship.
