My self-summary
I grew up in the LA area, moved to NYC for school. New Yorkers I've just met say I'm too smart to be a Los Angelino; Los Angelinos I've just met say I'm too nice to be a New Yorker. Yay for stereotype-smashing!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an award-winning composer and playwright. No, really! Don't worry, I'm not an insufferable theater geek--but I do love writing songs and making people laugh. (I also have the requisite boring day job--when I figure out a way to make a steady paycheck at the above, I'll let you know.)
I’m really good at
Besides the above? Finding things to see or do in the city that other people never dreamed existed--like the mini-golf course on Governor's Island, or the pre-Civil War subway tunnel under Brooklyn Heights. I love to explore whatever area I'm living, and if a site is unusual or obscure or historically interesting, chances are I've been there.
The first things people usually notice about me
People first notice my hair, which is very curly. I'm not so certain than any two strands are pointed in the same direction at any given time. Sometimes I tame it, and sometimes I rock the full-on Jewfro.

Then they notice my size. I forget how short I am until someone says something like "Did you know Jon Stewart is only 5 foot 7?!" Which, notice, is an inch taller than myself...

A former girlfriend said I have really sexy musician hands. Make of that what you will...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love so many books, movies, and music, it's hard to single any out. But I LOVE practically every type of Italian pasta dish there is--and I'm also a sucker for Mac and Cheese.
Six things I could never do without
6. Wikipedia
5. 24-hour diners
4. Baseball
3. An ocean or lake nearby
2. A sense of humor
1. A piano
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...waaaaaaay too much. Spend a day with me, and you'll catch me lost in thought at least once.
On a typical Friday night I am
realizing I forgot to make plans for Friday night--I'm a terrible procrastinator--and trying to organize plans for Saturday, usually involving Brooklyn friends and a movie/show/bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm rather shy in person, and to people meeting me for the first time, that can occasionally come off as guarded or even stand-offish. Trust me, once I've gotten to know you--and it usually doesn't take me long--I can be one of the most open, affectionate people you've ever met.
You should message me if
if...(arrgh, this one's tough)...IF, after reading everything I wrote above, you find yourself intrigued--and think that I would find you equally intriguing.
The two of us
