I'm working on thinking of an amusing anecdote to describe myself, but until then here are some things I like:
I love exploring and meeting genuinely interesting people, and I'll try anything once. Some of my best experiences have been traveling abroad, and I want to get everywhere eventually. So far this year, I've parlayed a couple work trips to London into vacation in Prague, Budapest, Cambridge, and Dublin. I did Bermuda a few weekends ago, going to Southeast Asia in November, then London again in December (and maybe Turkey?).
I'm an eclectic; I enjoy everything from painting to coding. I also like wandering the city (I've done 20+ miles in a day), and reading whatever piques my curiosity. I love debating. I also love endorphins: that used to be running (no music) but more recently racing my bike.
New England -> Pittsburgh -> Chicago -> NYC
I'm also involved in a couple programs mentoring NYC public high school students. It's a super fulfilling experience, and one I recommend to literally all of my friends and shamelessly boast about on online dating profiles.
I recycle, too.
* I think I make the best guacamole ever but my last guac-off ended in a tie, so we can't be too sure about that. But I do cook the most perfect scrambled eggs.
* Almost forgetting pants. Fortunately, it's hard to walk outside without shoes and hard to put on shoes without realizing you're not wearing any.
Movies: Pulp Fiction, The Usual Suspects, 12 Angry Men, Babel, (500) Days of Summer, and a few from overseas: Le Samourai, Pan's Labyrinth, City of God, The Artist.
Music: Stars, Kooks, Smashing Pumpkins, the xx, Phoenix, Strokes, Arcade Fire, Passion Pit, LCD Soundsystem, Metric, RAC. Plus nearly everything else, from Nicki Minaj to Yo-Yo Ma.
Food: burritos, guacamole, Cajun spices, ramen, Thai, Italian, sushi, and dim sum. Also, beer > wine (but not always).
* Road bike (+Strava)
* Feng shui
* Google calendar
What can I say, I'm a nerd.
And if you'd just like to grab a drink.
