My self-summary
Let the introspection begin! About me...

Militant recycler. Umbrella philanthropist. Sucker for 25¢ words. Passionate, ambitious, genuine and sometimes quirky.

Lover of outdoor activities; snowboarding, mountain biking, rock climbing, bridge.

When I'm out of Mountain Dew and not feeling so extreme, I do the low-key thing as well. I love spending a Sunday puttering around the city on my bike, going to flea markets, beer gardens, the park, and whatever I find along the way. I'm never bored; I tried it once, just to see how it felt...

I enjoy being out and about; I love nights out in NYC, all types of dancing, dinners out and in, art (from impressionist to modern), and I can't live without music (from punk-rock to industrial, indie & trip-hop).

Avid traveler; mostly with friends of late. Eagerly planning my next trip; seeking a partner in crime for the Amalfi Coast...

PBS and NPR appreciator. Lover of wine and single-malt scotches; my favorite is Talisker...

What more can I tell you... I'm a legend in my own mind. I'm sexier than Elvis in the fat years? I loathe reality television. I can teach you to swing dance...
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it! Taking full advantage of all the city has to offer. Cultivating a tiny balcony garden. Biking places. Learning to cook new dishes. Improving my 10K time. Sleeping in. Hosting parties. Making Spotify playlists. Trying to find a volunteering opportunity that uses my unique talents. Being an uncle. Working downtown as a software developer/manager/cat-herder and figuring out where to go from here...
I’m really good at
* Tilting windmills
* Cultivating a blissful ignorance of professional sports
* Navigating red-tape
* Making awesome guacamole and sangria
* Halloween costumes
* Making accidental eye contact with the craziest person on the subway car. My skill may even extend to my choice of car... From what I'm hearing, this a more common skill then one might think. I say we go Olympic with this thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told my dark, piercing eyes and that I always dress well even if I'm just in jeans and a hoodie.

That I'm smiling at some mysterious inner monologue...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Vonnegut, Murakami, Chuck Palahniuk or Pynchon (although I haven't had the fortitude to break into my copy of Mason & Dixon yet), Tom Robbins, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, How to Talk Dirty and Influence People, Catch-22, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, The Crying of Lot 49, Love in the Time of Cholera, Brave New World,

Movies: Momento, Heathers, Blade Runner, Army of Darkness, Grosse Point Blank, Pump Up the Volume, High Fidelity, Lost in Translation, and maybe "Gleaming the Cube" for 80's nostalgia's sake...

Music: Too many to name! I grew up listening to a lot of punk rock and now gravitate to a lot of indie and electronic music. Some faves include The Smiths, The Pixies, New Order, Youth of Today, Postal Service, Death Cab, Deftones, Metric, Jawbreaker, Muse, LCD, M83, Phoenix, Coheed, Communique, Depeche Mode, IAMX, De/Vision, Ministry, VNV Nation, and Circa Survive.

Food: Never met an asian food I didn't like. BBQ. Breakfast (french toast and maple-pepper bacon!).
Six things I could never do without
There's not much that I can't live without -- but without getting overly literal and for the sake of the question:
my close friends, music, dancing, learning new things, sunny days, passionate kisses...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. Girls. World domination. Snappy OkCupid responses. How many bikes is too many?

Not necessarily in that order.
On a typical Friday night I am
...searching for the bottom of a bottle of scotch? Err, I mean...

There's no typical, depending on the course of the week's events, it could be anywhere from a chill dinner with friends to having a few drinks out and dancing to some classic new-wave favorites!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have cable TV; a friend once referred to my apartment as "the amish household". That said, I watch shows on Hulu, which is probably cheating...

I'm the Yelp "duke" of a vegan restaurant in my neighborhood. That's just between us; I don't want it to ruin my carnivore rep.
You should message me if
They canceled this week's riveting installment of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" and you're looking to take it up a notch...

You're cool with dating a guy who gets along with kids and dotes on his niece, but isn't planning to have kids of his own...
The two of us
