My self-summary
I'm just a laid-back, relaxed kind of guy. I think life is way too short to get worked up about small things and try to laugh at everything and look on the better side of things. I'm really into movies, books, sports and music. I try to stay active and work out every day, but I guess I'm a bit of a foodie, always trying out new places to eat. I love Artichoke pizza on 14th st, Momofuku, and Mermaid Inn. I'm a travel junkie as well, I try to go on one big trip every summer and just got back from Iceland. The last few years I've been to Greece, Italy, Spain, and Iceland. I guess I'm a pretty well rounded guy and open minded about trying anything once...
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to NY in 2006,completed my M.A. at the New School in Media Studies in 2009 and now working as a video editor for Yahoo where I'm forced to make Donald Trump videos all day- yes, it can be hellish sometimes.
I’m really good at
I can usually do anything that I try to do and if I give a serious effort to learn how to do something, I pick it quick and learn easily. I used to teach tennis, so I guess I'm good at that. I make a mean taco and spicy feta dip. Not together. Even though that sounds kind of good right now. I'm pretty good at imitations and do silly voices like Adam Sandler or Jim Carrey.
The first things people usually notice about me
They usually think I'm pretty funny, but I admit I'm shy at first. I'm a better listener than talker, but people usually tell me that I have very good, educated opinions on a lot of different topics. Oh, and I always smell good.

Will the Ravens win the SuperBowl? YES! BOOM! DONE AND DONE!
Can I live off Hale and Hearty soup crackers?
Where am I traveling to next?
If I was forced to go on American Idol, what song would I sing?
My dad, I miss him
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends or seeing a movie, trying out a new restaurant, watching my Orioles/Ravens/Islanders/Canes.
I can tell you where I'm not: MEATPACKING DISTRICT
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Just that I've gotten to the point where things need to start having meaning. And I've never eaten egg salad and I don't know how to dive.
You should message me if
If you are looking to not only have a great time out but looking to start something good. You're open minded, smart, and you think we can make each other laugh. You enjoy trying new things and are just looking to be yourself around someone who wants to do the same... if you're interested, just say hey, isn't that why you're on here, to meet someone?
The two of us
