My self-summary
I've recently moved from New York to London. Show me around?

I’ve learned that lists of what you "must have" in a partner actually tend to break down as soon as you meet someone you actually like. My best connections have often been with people who share very few of the items on my interest list; They're often with people who can instead introduce me to some new ones. I think I’m more attracted to someone who is passionate about things than I am attracted to the specific things they are obsessed with. So, what interests you?
What I’m doing with my life
Lawyering by day, discovering my new city by night.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recently read my 8th or 9th Ian McEwan book. I also liked Netherland (O'Neill), Let the Great World Spin (McCann), Geoff in Venice, Death in Varanasi (Dyer), Cloud Atlas and A Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet (Mitchell). I also read things to keep up with the cultural zeitgeist - Game of Thrones, the Hunger Games and the like.

I love that we're in a golden age of TV (Mad Men, Breaking Bad) but I also like some movies - I love most everything Almodovar touches, and Wes Anderson, sometimes Woody Allen and old Tim Burton too. Love the Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight series. Drive was violent but brilliant (as opposed to Man of Steel and Elysium, which were both violent and awful).

Music is definitely tough to list but hugely important to me. Been to Coachella a few times and their list of acts is a decent mix of what I like. Looking forward to festivals in the UK this summer!

Local Natives, Washed Out, Daft Punk, Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, the XX, Yeasayer, the National, New Order, U2, MJ, JT, Pharrell, Mark Ronson, Kanye (despite his flaws), the list goes on...
Six things I could never do without
1 Water - not just to drink, but to sail on, swim in, lie down next to and stare at
2 My family - in the States and beyond
3 My cameras (yes, cameras, though I've never taken a photography lesson) (and honestly, I'm not great photographer, but I like the memories)
4 Spotify
5 My passport
6 Good eats
On a typical Friday night I am
Really depends on my energy level and what kind of week I had (and what I did on Thursday night!)
The two of us
