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.
I just moved to the East Village and lovin it!
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!
