My self-summary
I'm fascinated by people. I spent a good chunk of my time over the last several years thinking about and studying human interactions, behaviors, and thought processes.

Now, instead, I try to talk to, meet, and observe as many interesting and new people as I can.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to San Francisco about three years ago from the East Coast and am in the process of transitioning out of the corporate world to a career in education.
I’m really good at
Helping everyone else solve their problems (and my own too sometimes), listening, arguing (some may want to disagree there), being perceptive
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, but only if you've just met me.

Somehow people who've known me for a while claim that all of a sudden one day "I just happened to be taller than they were."

I suppose my voice also. I'm told I have a very deep voice, but like my height, it's not something I tend to notice much myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like movies. A lot. I love reading too, but really no matter what I'll always make time for movies, and sadly, the same can't be said for books.

I'll pretty much watch anything that a friend recommends, but if I have a "type," it could probably be summarized from some combination of the following generic descriptors (yes, several of these did come from Netflix)- cerebral, psychological, crime thrillers, dramas, foreign dramas, "dark," heavy, indie dramas, etc. (just to name a few: Good Will Hunting, City of God, Traffic, Mystic River, Eastern Promises, Se7en, American Psycho (great book as well)...

Edward Norton is at least one of, if not, my favorite actor. Think American History X, Primal Fear (his first), 25th Hour (great book also), Rounders, etc...

Over the past several years I've also watched a ton of great HBO/Showtime series I never watched when they were released- Sopranos, Six Feet Under, The Tudors, The Wire, OZ, Deadwood etc...

Enjoy most kinds of music (except country) but don't follow it. Growing up, I listened to a lot of underground rap/hip-hop because people around me did. These days I've been listening to a lot of classic rock, alternative and often things that I hear in movies such as Talking Heads (in American Psycho), Radiohead (in Incendies, and many others)
Six things I could never do without
-Good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
pop. psych articles, the opposite gender, self-improvement, books I want to read, movies I want to see, places I want to go
You should message me if
If you like to laugh and have fun.

Especially if "fun" brings to mind partying as much as it does watching a great movie or doing something you haven't done since you were a kid
The two of us
