My self-summary
Despite having been in New York for some time, I remain an inveterate New Englander. By that, I mean I still refer to traveling to my spiritual home of Cape Cod as "going down Cape," and I continue to attempt a city-as-country lifestyle through my habitual two cups of morning coffee, playing records, the smell of old books, a long (for me, at least) Sunday run, and day trips into the farthest reaches of Westchester and Fairfield counties.

So I’m definitely neither hip nor with it. And that’s ok—it’s what makes me me. That said, it’s not like I couldn’t stand to have my horizons expanded a bit, and it would be great to meet somebody who would. In return, I’ll do my best to expand yours, or at the very least pepper my commentary with arcane references.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m in advertising. It's interesting. Otherwise, you can find me reading, playing selections from my vinyl collection, or on a long drive out of the city. Weekends I largely leave to chance, but I nearly always get in a run across the Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges, with Blue Bottle coffee at the end. If you’re willing to come along and push me to run further, I’d welcome it.
I’m really good at
Anecdotes and aphorisms. Sticking my foot in my mouth. Amateur home repair and maintenance.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suspect it's that I look like the L.L. Bean catalog. If so, there's a good reason why.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Many, but I tend to come back to “Decline and Fall” by Evelyn Waugh, “Just Kids” by Patti Smith, and “Moby Dick.”

Movies: There's a range. “Double Indemnity,” “Sunset Boulevard,” “The Sting,” “To Live and Die in L.A.," the “Rocky” franchise (number three is the best; let’s pretend the fifth never happened) and so on.

TV Shows: I oscillate between things like “The Rockford Files” and “Magnum P.I.” to “Silicon Valley” and “Narcos.”

Music: There's a bit of everything in there, but I listen primarily to classic hip hop, 80s and 90s alternative, and Yacht Rock. That said, I love "Double Time" by Leon Redbone—it's one of the jewels in my vinyl crown.

Food: I like a good sandwich.
The six things I could never do without
Cape Cod. That’s where I feel most like myself, at any time of year.

My Jeep. It has a lot to live up to—the last one took me to all five boroughs, 17 states, and both coasts.

Sailboats. I admire their inherent grace and steadfastness; too bad I can’t say the same for myself in the face of seasickness.

Dogs. They’re reminders to commit fully to whatever you do, even if it’s taking a nap.

Work. Much of how I define myself is dictated by my career; I admit that’s not always a good thing.

Physical challenges. There’s a competitive streak in me that needs to be satisfied.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The endgame.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at home, maybe after a drink or two with a friend. I’m really not one to rage, Friday or any other night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sorry—I play those cards close to the chest. But after I get to know someone, I’ll show my hand.
You should message me if
You’re open to possibilities, you have a mind of your own, and you have the intestinal fortitude to make it all the way to the end of my profile.
