I like puzzles, brain teasers, and strategy games. And doing the daily sudoku on the train. I like solving problems and fixing things. I like working with my hands and building Ikea furniture. I like retro video games (and some new ones).
I dream of one day riding a motorcycle across the U.S. I prefer road trips over plane trips. I'll drive. You can navigate and choose the music. I don't mind flying though and I like to look out the window during take off and landing. But you can have the window seat if you want it.
I love all animals but I would definitely consider myself more of a cat person. I like dogs, but it usually takes me some time to warm up to them.
Finishing up my second degree in finance at Brooklyn College and recently started a new position as an agent and financial advisor at New York Life.
I plan to one day start my own business and/or make a lot of money and then blow it all on vacations, comic books, and candy.
I'm pretty good at riding my bike with no hands. Making eggs. Starting books and not finishing them. And I can play the banjo a bit. I'm still learning.
Oh, and I can grow a fuckin' sweet mustache.
Update: I do not currently have a mustache. Just a perpetual scruff these days.
I don't watch a lot of TV but I do like Portlandia, Louie, Game of Thrones, of course. And Seinfeld reruns.
I've seen a lot of movies. Bonus points if you can quote movies with me. Some favorites: Se7en, Amelie, The Fifth Element, Aliens, Pan's Labyrinth, Spirited Away, Star Wars, The Descent, The Abyss, The Thing, Tarantino, the Coen brothers, early Jim Carrey, early Bill Murray.
I like most music. I can find something to enjoy from just about any genre. Some favorites: Tegan & Sara, Mates of State, The Kills, The Raveonettes, Against Me!, Murder By Death, Florence + the Machine, The Shins, The New Pornographers, Frightened Rabbit, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Queen, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, the 90s, 80s pop, 70s classic rock, the 60s
All the Italian food. Mexican is great too. I love a big ol plate of nachos or chips and salsa. Sushi everyday. You might also find me snacking on peanut butter. Or fresh fruit. And I never met a sandwich I didn't like.
-warm, sunny days (good for bench sitting, people watching, and city exploration)
-rainy, overcast days (good for video games, Netflix, ordering delivery, cuddling and everything else between the sheets)
-a fan in my room to go to sleep to
-Crystal hot sauce (Crystal is hard to find in nyc for some reason, so I usually have to settle for Red Devil)
Finance and the economy.
Women and relationships.
I like all types of women but I tend to go more for the tomboyish, girl-next-door type. Alternative hair colors/styles and septum piercings make me weak in the knees. I like meeting all kinds of people though so if you read this far and liked what you read and you like what you see then feel free to say hey!
