My self-summary
Recently returned to the tri-state area after fifteen years in Florida and Arizona, and loving being "new" here all over again.

Me in a nutshell - silly, but serious when it counts, food, cocktail, craft beer and coffee enthusiast, gym rat, trivia sponge, world traveler (30 countries and counting), career-driven go-getter, avid reader, world class egg white omelet and protein pancake chef, all star snuggler, shameless parentheses over-user(I regret nothing!)

I’m here looking for something serious. A true connection. My lobster. Someone to enjoy that perfect lazy Sunday morning with - hanging out on the couch after a workout or a run, Netflix on the TV (chill optional), smell of chocolate chip banana protein pancakes and espresso in the air. Someone to hold hands with as we explore the city, get lost in the streets of Venice, or stroll down Champs-Élysées. A best friend, a bucket list partner, and the one I want by my side as we fall asleep every night.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it in every sense of the word! If life is a giant buffet, then I’m filling my plate with a small portion of everything. Even the foods that look a little scary, like escargot.
I’m really good at
- Remembering utterly useless trivia. If you say the phrase "what's that one movie/show/song/actor" around me, and give me even the tiniest bit of information, chances are I'll be able to tell you quicker than you can google it.
- Making Simpsons references that only I get.
- Lifting, brah.
- Getting cat toys out from under the couch.
The first things people usually notice about me
I want to be vain and say eyes, shoulders, or arms, but I'll be realistic and say it's the chainsaw and hockey mask.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food - Sushi above all else, but I love trying out new restaurants of any cuisine. This city has also made me develop cravings for ramen.

Books - 1984 is my all time favorite. I re-read it every few years, and my cat's name is Winston. Also love Lord of the Flies, Catch22, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The God Delusion. My last 5 are:
- The Great Gatsby (cliche, I know, but I'm realizing how little I appreciated it in high school.)
- Catcher in the Rye (another high school re-read. Meh.)
- Lolita (amazing, though it made me feel a little dirty.)
- 1Q84 (I'm in New York and on this site, I have to have some Murakami along with my Machu Picchu pic)
- White Noise (suuuucked)

Movies - Fight Club, V for Vendetta, Memento, Snatch, the Matrix, the Bourne trilogy, The Room (big extra points if you've seen it and tolerated it) - your typical guy list, but I like chick flicks if they're unique and good - 500 Days of Summer, Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, and Definitely, Maybe, are all great. Recently saw Before Sunrise/Before Sunset/Before Midnight and they may have taken the top spot(s) on my list.

TV - Mad Men, Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones, Arrested Development, Party Down, The Wire, Always Sunny, Fargo, The Simpsons, True Detective, The Leftovers.

Music - Constantly changing. Electronic music is my go to, it gets me through my workouts and my commute to work, but the rest is always fluid. Loving tropical house right now.

Podcasts - Comedy Bang Bang, My Dad Wrote a Porno, Hollywood Handbook, Hardcore History.
The six things I could never do without
- An adventurous palate. I'm hard to gross out.
- My passport.
- Bar cabinet and a shaker. I like to do some amateur mixology.
- Kindle.
- Gym membership.
- Air, water, food, and OkCupid cliches.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to not think so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
In the city or in Brooklyn exploring. Having been away for as long as I have been, everything has changed so much. I'm on a quest to discover all the hidden (and not so hidden) gem restaurants, bars, and other fun stuff.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I eat halves of desserts. I know myself, and I know that I like going for seconds, so I'll usually leave the other half laying around, come back and finish it off later, and avoid the guilt of having a whole second helping. I'm notorious for it among my friends.
You should message me if
what you've read so far resonates with you, and if you're an active and positive person that loves to experience the world around you.

Let's end with a game. Three truths and a lie, see if you can guess the lie:

- Wasn't born on this continent.
- Spent a night in jail for a bar brawl I didn't participate in.
- Once won a strangest "talent" competition.
- Spent an entire concert on stage despite not being part of the act.
