My self-summary
I just moved to Boston after graduating from an MBA program in the (almost) Midwest. It is exciting to be in a new city, but exploring somewhere new comes with incredible highs and the occasional disappointing low. The next place I go or person I meet could be amazing... or it could be Beacon Hill Pub.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to get a little better everyday. The best days of my life still lie ahead.
I’m really good at
Friends. Or maybe I have just been incredibly lucky in meeting such wonderful people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Bonfire of the Vanities, A Farewell to Arms, Atlas Shrugged (despite its arrogance), Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, David Copperfield, Against the Gods, The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby, Stranger in a Strange Land.

Movies: I tend to enjoy most movies I see in the theater even if they are exceedingly bad. Popcorn, soda, candy, and a movie is always a good time.

Music: Everything. My taste runs from Kid Cudi to Mumford and Sons to Bon Jovi to Pat Green. It's great to see live music at bars and other understated venues--talent is everywhere.

Food: I enjoy trying new restaurants and cooking new things. Most recently I made a hearts of palm ceviche and sriracha brussel sprouts. My favorite restaurants include a legendary mom & pop Italian place in DC, a ramenya in the East Village and a friendly little sushi spot down the block from my old apartment in Dupont Circle. I'm looking forward to finding some new favorites in Boston...
Six things I could never do without
1. New
2. Robust public transportation
3. Sports and competition
4. The option to walk
5. NYTimes/WSJ/New Yorker/Economist
6. Memories with Brian in Colorado, Josh in Chicago, Andy in NY, and Eric in DC
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Unintended consequences.
On a typical Friday night I am
Often out with new friends, rarely studying and never-often-enough visiting my old friends across the country.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm here because of a fantastic article on Online Dating in the New Yorker. I met all of my favorite--and longest term--girlfriends in bars, which I think is a wonderful place to meet people--provided it is the right bar.

I'm curious to find out if this will be an interesting way to meet someone; if I have the... literary, I suppose... charm when there is no possibility to physically express myself (quite the challenge for us Italians). It will also be fascinating to find out if the myriad filtering tools available online will help or hinder my ability to find someone that genuinely catches my attention (i.e., does what I think I want get in the way of what I really want).

New Yorker Article:
You should message me if
You are incredibly beautiful but not willing to substitute beauty for character and prodigiously intelligent without being pedantic (irony!).

And/or you want to show me some of your favorite things about Boston or explore the city with me.
