My self-summary
Brooklyn born and raised. I grew up in Carroll Gardens but over the years I've lived in more neighborhoods than I can count. I love NY and find it hard imagining living anywhere else!

I have a degree in statistics, and am currently working as an actuarial analyst at an insurance brokerage. Its ok if you don't know what an actuary is. No one does.

In my free time I enjoy rock climbing, playing board games, shooting pool, rocking out at pub trivia, watching Netflix, Hulu, and the like, and discovering cheap, but amazing restaurants. I have been in NYC for close to 3 decades but it still always surprises me.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently, I am studying and trying to keep passing exams. Studying to become an actuary is kind of like a grindy RPG. Its not for everyone, and sometimes seems like a slog, but leveling up feels so good! I just wish I could have a gunblade...
I’m really good at
Math, cooking, crossword puzzles, rock climbing, table top gaming, making friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think my smile. I use it often!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are Dune, which is the seminal sci-fi novel and East Eden, which is also my mother's favorite. So much so that she named me for her favorite character in it.

I am currently reading a book for my book club called Salmonella Men on Planet Porno. It's ridiculous and crazy but well worth a read.

Other great books I've read within the last year are Lolita, Infinite Jest, The City and the City, A Confederacy of Dunces, Telegraph Avenue, and Difficult Men. I wouldn't say I'm a book snob, I've read some pretty trashy fantasy/sci-fi but books are very important to me and a love for some quality lit is something I look for in a guy.

I have a weakness for crappy true crime shows, stuff on ID like "I killed my BFF" and "Wives with Knives". The good stuff is Game of Thrones, Archer, True Detective, Rupaul's Drag Race, Law and Order SVU, Jeopardy, House of Cards, Orphan Black, Battlestar Galactica, Top Chef, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Six Feet Under, Orange is the New Black, and Mad Men.

Foodwise, I was a super picky vegetarian for 20 years of my life, so now I am catching up on lost time by trying anything and everything. My favorite restaurant in Brooklyn is this amazing Uzbeki place in Brighton. If only it weren't so difficult to get people out there...
