My self-summary
Ukrainian born, California bred. Shipped up to Boston and now I'm back after 6 years with hardly any nasal drag in my accent - my "r's" are are still "r's" and not "aah's" (Thank Brady!). Juggling the expectations of young ("professional") adulthood and not being a total shriv. Not a hipster, but I seem to like things before they go mainstream. Not a granola, but am a fan of the outdoors. Not a hardo, but am very easily and quickly pumped up by pretty much any DMX song ever. Fan of sociology, LP records, any and all sports and the GREAT outdoors. Also, you. You seem pretty swell.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from undergrad about two years ago and now I do data analytics for one of your typical Silicon Valley shops. I do not however use the words "disrupt", "pivot", or "growth hacking" (non-sarcastically). In my free time, I play tennis, go to concerts, read voraciously, write lethargically and mix music here and there.
I’m really good at
Pub trivia. Beatmatching. Projectile-based drinking games. Contrapositives. Making baby back ribs. Getting writer's block. Using big words in short texts. Having too many tabs open. Bird law.
The first things people usually notice about me
That my name looks like what a drunken toddler would play in a game of Scrabble. (Dear toddlers, please don't drink and Scrabble.) There's way too many letters and vowels next to each other and DEAR GOD HAVE MERCY, why are there so many Y's???
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently Blasting: Viceroy remixes and the new Childish.
Currently Reading: realized that I had never read The Divine Comedy except bits and pieces, so doing that now.

Books: Infinite Jest, Trainspotting, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Gravity's Rainbow, The Idiot, and A Song Of Ice And Fire.
Films: The Godfather; City of God; The Professional; The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly; Hoop Dreams; Zoolander.
Current(-ish) Shows: Breaking Bad, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Wilfred, Game Of Thrones, Portlandia, House of Cards, The Walking Dead. In general, I also really love trashy reality TV. The trashier, the better.
Older Shows: Cheers, Seinfeld, Arrested Development, Freaks & Geeks, Invader Zim.
Music: Everything ever. Recent faves include Odesza, The Flirtations, James Vincent McMorrow, Zion I's newer stuff, T.Rex, and Parra for Cuva
Food: Sushi/sashimi, steak, Thai, and a special soft spot for In-N-Out and homemade Russian food.
Six things I could never do without
Music, laughter, San Francisco Giants baseball, my loved ones, pen and paper, and dat Kindle doe.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Something of great, but fleeting, profundity and/or incredible inanity. Also (or is it e.g.?), Kanye West. Also also: narrative arcs, modes of representation, and art in the age of mechanical reproduction and other pseudointellectual nonsense.
On a typical Friday night I am
myself. But occasionally, a bout of metaphysical solipsism really makes me reconsider that proposition. Which is super annoying if I'm out at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is some generic thing that seems superficially embarrassing, but is in fact actually cute and endearing. What a cop out.
You should message me if
you need a teammate for The Amazing Race.
you're confident you can beat me in Scrabble or trivia.
you know a great upcoming show and need a concert buddy.
you own books. that you occasionally read.
your perfect first date might just be oysters and beer on a roofdeck or some beachside haunt.
The two of us
