My self-summary
I was born and raised in a tiny little landlocked country called Paraguay. Please dont ask me if that is in Europe as I had to kill several conversations for that reason (ignorance is bliss, but come on!)
I also spent a couple of years in Asia, living in Hong Kong but doing significant travel and backpacking to exciting places like Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Mainland China, Thailand and a few others.
Oberlin College was my first exposure to the United States and man that was culture shock! I went to school with the most liberal kids in the planet and I loved it. It really had a role in defining who I am now. Lived in Boston after that and then came to NYC for grad school at Columbia. I now work as a banker in the renewable energy sector and I am really excited about what I do which unfortunately often results in my being a bit of a workaholic.

I am highly motivated, intellectually curious and enormously enjoy articulate, witty conversation. By “witty” I really mean laughing so hard tears salt one’s pea and mint soup.

I dislike arrogance, close-mindedness, anyone who wears Crocs that's over the age of 6, people who block the door on the subway, when someone asks me if I am "having fun?" at their party, and the expression "what happens in vegas..." or any derivation used to suit the current situation at hand.

Oh yea, and I'm heavy on the sarcasm. Once you get to know me, I likely won't let an opportunity pass by to make fun of something or someone. So don't wear a silly looking scarf or hat and expect to get away with it in my presence.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a renewable energy banker by day gym junkie, scotch snob and party animal by night

I just moved to the East Village and lovin it!
I’m really good at
getting shit done, making people laugh, having a positive attitude about everything in life even when everything is going down the drain, sarcasm, jokes, talking nonsense
The first things people usually notice about me
my accent which is not too strong but noticeable, I am inevitably asked about it when I meet someone. I think it generally plays in my favor ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Kill Bill, Pulp fiction, Reservoir dogs, Hangover (part 1), wedding crashers, Bourne (---).The departed. Shawshank redemption. Trainspotting.

Tv: Game of Thrones, Californication, How I met your mother, Modern Family, Daily show w/ Stewart (the only way I get my news, also Colbert Report). I must have watched the entire series of 24 and Prison Break.

Reads: I tend to alternate mostly between finance/economic books, you wont like the list, its starts with the economist and ends with freakonomics. I pick up the new yorker every now and then, as well as GQ

Music: I have Spotify and its amazing. I keep hacking into my friend's playlists and explore different artist. I'm generally a Rock/Alternative type of guy as well as latin rock/pop, but I'll listen to just about anything for a short period of time. Anything but country music

Food: Oh wow, where do I begin - I think I'll take the easy road on this one and say I'm adventurous when it comes to new food (more Anthony Bourdain and less Andrew Zimmerman). Great food is one of the excellent pleasures of life!
Six things I could never do without
immaculate infatuation app
single malt scotch
running shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my next career move, where to eat, where to drink
On a typical Friday night I am
happy hr with coworkers then out with friends at bars/restaurants usually in east/west village or soho
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was a member of Paraguay's teen chess national team for two years... how nerdy is that?
You should message me if
nothing of the above scared you
The two of us
