My self-summary
I asked my friend Eric how I should "summarize" myself.

Here's what he said:

"Ken is inquisitive, intelligent, able to appreciate perspectives other than his own, compassionate, uncomfortable in traffic jams, creative, resilient, musical, witty, working a bit more than he should but getting better at balance, progressive, responsible but with a appreciation of mischief, looking for an equal partner, devoted, more comfortable at intimate dinners than large cocktail parties, more interested in experiences than things, fun to hang out with but prone to crankiness when his blood sugar drops. Have snacks handy."

You'll form your own opinion, of course.
What I’m doing with my life
1) Just moved to Westchester for a new job. It's gorgeous here. And train service to the city is excellent, thank goodness. ;-)

2) Looking for friendship, intimacy, maybe even a relationship if the right guy and I can find each other.

3) Seeing as much of the world as I can. Just got back from South Africa, which was amazing. Love Europe, need to get to Asia and South America to round out my views of the world. Would love to meet a fellow traveler.

4) Editing my OK Cupid profile to catch me a man.
I’m really good at
Making music, eating cinnamon raisin bagels with cream cheese, driving in France, connecting seemingly disparate ideas, and sharing the covers.

Six things I could never do without
Short ribs
The Times
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How, through our eyes, the universe is discovering itself.

And why Jarlsberg is soooooo delicious. Nom nom.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting together with a friend for dinner. And having a kir royale while remaining secure in my masculinity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let me tell you when we meet.
You should message me if
You think it might be fun to hang out and live in the NYC region so we can get together in person. I'm generally open to meeting when we have soms common interests. Try me! ;-)
The two of us
