My self-summary
*** Disclaimer: profile originally created in 2012. Just turned this bad boy back on. Need time to edit/update ***

I grew up in the Bronx (after living the first 6 years of my life in Ghana), went to boarding school in CT, Colgate University (Philosophy), and have been working at a NYC Hedge Fund since my Junior year in High School.

I'm indecisive - cripplingly so when it comes to ordering seamless - just warning you.

I'm introverted, but I love being in the presence of others. I get bored when I'm alone.

I'm a complicated mix of INFJ/ISFJ/ISFP. Depending on how I'm feeling when i take these tests, those are the results i always get.

Love cars.

I love good food. I make it a point to explore NYC's culinary world. I love dinners with friends, but I'm just as comfortable eating at one of my favorites by myself.

Love to cook, but my knife skills could be much better.

I love looking at & being on the water. Unfortunately, I can't swim.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Hedge Fund Associate with ambitions of ruling the world.

Based on my personality type, I'm probably also in the wrong field...

Making moves to LA.
I’m really good at
Bocce...and sitting by the pool or on the porch swing relaxing during summer weekends.

2. My startup
3. Aliens
4. My Future
5. The coming weekend
6. Sex (judging by some of your profiles its not just a guy thing).
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about.
