Lifetime New Yorker, pseudo-ginger, Italian/American dual citizen, Moth junkie, entrepreneur. Just coming off of a long period of focusing exclusively on building my startup, ready to kick back a little and enjoy life. As part of that process I recently moved to Chelsea and am looking to meet interesting, intelligent people to explore the area with.
Somewhere in there I also ran Pittsburgh's first hookah bar, worked for a food magazine, started a not-for-profit company, and produced a handful of short films.
Other than work, I love snowboarding, Muay Thai, basketball, biking, and cooking, and am on a quest to find the best bloody mary in the city.
Also Scrabble, but not in the flirty "tee hee msg me if you want to play!" way, I grew up in a family of writers who take Scrabble waaaay too seriously, so I'm no fun to play against for 99% of the population.
Movies: Wall-E, American Psycho, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Black Dynamite, The Big Lebowski, Thank You For Smoking
Shows: The only live shows I frequent are the Moth and stand up comedy, but I try to get to them as often as possible.
TV: The Wire, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Mad Men, Daily Show, Family Guy, Breaking Bad, Always Sunny
Music: Lupe Fiasco, Grimes, LCD Soundsystem, BIG, Daft Punk, Deadmau5. (Hard to sum all the genres up here)
Food: All of it. I love food, and have been building up a list of amazing hidden spots to eat in NYC. Let me know if you want to exchange secret spots.
- Self referential jokes
- Oyster happy hours
- The occasional weekend staycation
- Good eats (both the show and high quality food)
Also, where are all the baby pigeons?
I will probably disregard anyone who is "looking for a partner in crime" (unless they mean real crime)
