My self-summary
I'm a bit of an old soul, a music history nerd, quick with a joke or pun, am organized beyond belief and extremely driven, but I try and take things as they come (a dichotomy of sorts). I am a good storyteller; remind me to tell you about the time I ran into Jon Stewart, or when I was mistaken for a criminal. Cooking is a favorite activity of mine and I have picked up some awesome recipes over the years. Park Slope is my home now, and I can be found regularly running in the park.

My family is awesome and we are pretty close. I'm a hopeless romantic. I am a big believer in karma. A dog lover who is figuring out when he should make the leap and get one (nearly did last month...!). Giant NBA fanatic. And since this seems to be a thing here: INTJ.

Life is awesome, but it'd be even more awesome to have a partner in crime (and eventual best friend) to share it with. I realize it's easy just to type this online, but I am being sincere and this is probably the best way to meet someone who shares these same desires. Perhaps you'd fancy meeting up over coffee or a drink and we can see where it goes?
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a major television network as a media management supervisor in content distribution (aka, I am a purveyor of some pretty terrible teen television, but also of some really good cartoons, so it balances out).

I'm also a musician and writer in the post work hours. I have been fortunate enough to teach it, travel around the States and play for people, and connect with fans all over the world. And I now am in two published books, after having been interviewed and choice quotes excerpted! The book worm in me cannot begin to explain the joy in this.
I’m really good at
Managing to find a correlation between everything happening in life to something on Seinfeld or Curb.
Knowing what time it is with no clocks nearby.
British accents.
Being quite verbose (see this profile for a glimpse).
Remembering minutiae.
A bunch of other little stuff I can't remember.
Subtle humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Eyeless In Gaza, Sheltering Sky, Brave New World, 1984, Up Above the World, Ghost In The Machine, Man and His Symbols, Interpretation of Dreams, Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs, and most music biographies.

Ghostbusters. Anchorman. Back to the Future. Dazed and Confused.

Seinfeld. How I Met Your Mother. Arrested Development. the Office. Always Sunny.

Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Police, King Crimson, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, Dungen, Tame Impala, Oasis, etc etc. Did I mention the Beatles?

I absolutely love to cook meals most nights of the week. Too much to name here, but I eat pretty healthy. You can put pineapple or coconut in basically anything and I'll eat it (...wait, actually, that's a lie. I may love coconut, but I hate coconut water). Veggie paella has been my latest fascination. Fresh fruit is one of my favorite things ever (an apple a day after all...). And I have quite the affinity for cereal. And cookies.
Not to mention that I love a good single malt scotch.
The six things I could never do without
A cup of black coffee over a great read.
Autumn weather.
Music.
Notebook for writing.
Laughter.
My family and friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever I am in the midst of writing/ reading.
How Popeye cartoons were really just pro spinach propaganda.
My next meal.
How I want to start "playing" tennis. I say "playing" because I think the child in me really just wants to hit the ball from the automatic server machines. Unless you know how to actually play (without quotes) and can show me?
On a typical Friday night I am
Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes want to escape from the 9-5 and just become a writer of some sort.
You should message me if
You appreciate the little things in life.

You also doubt us getting along is totally predicated on how we answered these question or is determined by these algorithms.

You're hoping to find something substantial and awesome as well.

You don't mind that I say awesome a lot.

Yada, yada, yada...
