My self-summary
I have rapier-sharp wit. I'm restless. I've backpacked in Asia. I've worked in Africa. I like meeting new people. I read a lot. I watch a lot of movies. I think a lot. I like to cook. I go to the gym. I really, really like to dance.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a journalist for an international news wire. I like my job and I'm hoping to get a foreign posting eventually.
I’m really good at
Writing I suppose. At least, I do a lot of it. I think I'm good at talking too. I enjoy conversation and debate and making jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm smiling. That, and wearing glasses. If you wear glasses it's almost always your most distinguishing feature.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Roberto Bolano, James Joyce, Fyodr Dostoyevsky, Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I also read a lot of journalism, newspapers and magazines.
I like indie movies and foreign films. Anything that's good and makes me think. Or samurai movies. I also have a weakness for gangster movies. Also, The Wire, Deadwood, The Sopranos, Girls, Boardwalk Empire, Louie, Breaking Bad, Mad Men.
Indie rock, hip hop and oldies, the cornier the better. I'm still dancing to Hall & Oates. Lately podcasts have been taking up most of my iPod time. Specifically, Radiolab, This American Life and Planet Money.
I like Asian cuisine: Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Japanese.

Here's the obligatory list of musicians:

LCD Soundsystem, The Supremes, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, The Wu-Tang Cla, Biggie, Otis Redding, Motel Motel, Mark Ronson, Goldfrapp, The Dirty Projectors, Breakbot, those songs from Drive, Youth Lagoon, St. Vincent, all Motown really, hilarious 90s pop from when I was in middle school.
Six things I could never do without
The Internet. Cheese. Wine. My iPod. Books. Walking.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to write about each day. Also, what I'm going to cook for dinner. Also, everything else. I'm a bit neurotic.
On a typical Friday night I am
My friday nights are evenly divided between going out with my friends, which often involves drinking and dancing, and staying in and watching movies/tv in sweatpants under a blanket.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't whistle.
You should message me if
You want to go on a fun date.
The two of us
