Been working/living in manhattan (did a stint of 1yr in Queens) for 5 years as of this Sept. Love every second of it.
Went to school in the city for photography, didn't end up panning out too well (the market for that sucks these days...). Internet/design was more enticing. Plan to launch a startup within the next couple of years.
Otherwise I am doing independent projects and cooking -alot-. Have cooked since I was much younger and can usually be found at some grocery store wandering around looking for something tasty to cook. Or out eating somewhere.
In the past few years I have gotten really good at consulting and delivering web & design projects. Still do freelance jobs after work, if you need a website or a printed catalog - I'm your guy.
Paid a lot to learn how to be good at photography, and tended to be pretty good at it.
Inventing things - designing things, learning new stuff all the time.
TV? Don't watch much, but what I do will probably be of alot nerdier subject matter than you are used to.
Considerably enjoy Madmen, Parks and Recreation - however.
Read the NYtimes every morning (on my phone, it's 2012 after all and that thing is heavy).
Food network, although it has gone down hill considerably recently.
+cooking, good food (like bacon)
Good beer, good whiskey.
Computers (gotta work, and stuff like that).
A clean apartment.
Most likely you should be employed in some normal fashion or at least normal compared to somebody who works during the day and is usually not working anymore at 6.
Seriously if you work from 6PM-1PM on weekdays and on weekends, we probably just wouldn't find a time to ever actually meet up (this has happened before).
You're pretty awesome (or at least consider yourself to be, confidence is hot) - I certainly try to be a better person every day. Don't worry, I am pretty awesome too. I appreciate people who take care of themselves physically and mentally.
You like the outdoors but also love the city - both have great things to offer and I intend to experience all that I can.
