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 can get grouchy if his blood sugar drops. Have snacks handy."

You'll form your own opinion, of course.
What I’m doing with my life
1) Recently moved to Westchester for work (it's gorgeous here) yet I tend to hang out in NYC quite a bit since it was home base for many years.

2) Looking for friendship and intimacy. And ready for 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 be great to meet a fellow traveler.

4) Making the world a more musical place and helping kids grow.

5) 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.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm a tall one who suffers from bed head.

Six things I could never do without
The Times
Short ribs

Is this list overly specific? ;-)
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 some common interests. Try me! ;-)
The two of us
