My self-summary
Originally from Dublin and sunny—despite a childhood filled with rain. I talk; therefore, I am. Seeking someone for banter, wit and laughter.
What I’m doing with my life
I've spent the past 15 months launching and building a non profit with multiple different programs. Prior to that, I was a journalist, writer, and critic. I still write.
I’m really good at
Not internet dating. The past year has been so busy, I'm only just coming up for air/editing this profile so it's up-to-date.
The first things people usually notice about me
I never ask this question so I do not know the answer.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For pleasure, I repeatedly turn to P.G. Wodehouse and Patrick Leigh Fermor. I love J.L. Carr's A Month in the Country—and the Turgenev play of the same name. I'm currently, albeit slowly, working my way through E.M. Forster.

I do enjoy a good HBO/Netflix series—the usual suspects—and going to the movies, especially late at night when the theater is mostly empty (this used to be easy when I lived around the corner from a multiplex). The last movies I saw were Star Wars, Spotlight and Room. I enjoyed all of them, but particularly the last, as the director once wrote a piece for me when I was editor of my college's newspaper.

I go through phases: I have to say I am more appreciative of simplicity than elaboration: sometimes a nice chilled white, and some good bread and cheese is worth a chef's tasting menu.
The six things I could never do without
This is supposed to tell you something about how my mind works: so, I like to write with a fountain pen on paper; but I would never give up my digital cameras or photoshop for film and a darkroom. I relax by traveling, but I usually do very little other than sit and drink espresso when I get where I'm going. I love Fire Island, and cooking with friends and strangers. I live for good conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Statistics. Travel.
On a typical Friday night I am
in the gutter but looking up at the stars, or in the stars looking for the gutter, or merely asleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not willing to admit anything private on the Internet.
You should message me if
You enjoy an Irish sense of humor; you are a conversationalist; you are not seeking perfection—or all the trappings that seem so very important to those who travel the Boston Washington corridor.
