My self-summary
INFJ on Myers-Briggs. Nearly everyone who knows me will tell you that I'm an "E" (Extrovert) and that the test got it wrong.

The test got it right.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm writing a novel. I've written, continue to write, and have published a few short stories.

I read a lot.

I write a lot.

I work very hard at a non-profit job that I love, that was tailor-made for me, and that I literally could not do anywhere else in the world but NYC.

(Until we open a second site in Detroit in September)
I’m really good at
Getting my way. I'm the spoiled youngest sibling of four. But it's not that I'm bitchy, things just usually turn out that way…

I also maintain enough joie de vie that generally, even my competitors/peers root for me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Everything about me is noticeable, so you'd have to pick what stands out to you. Hopefully, it's noticeable in an intriguing and intelligent way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is an extremely long list. We can discuss it over several rounds of drinks.
The six things I could never do without
My education
My sisters
My friends
Literature
Music
Figure Skating (I did this competitively, quite seriously, for many years)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My novel
Short stories
Essays I want (but am too gun-shy) to write
My family
My friends
My students

And not necessarily in this order:
Sex
God
My bank account
The weather
My daily, weekly, monthly, annual agenda
On a typical Friday night I am
Wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a gay boy with daddy issues. Shocking.
You should message me if
this quote means anything to you, because it means everything to me:

"They were dreamer women. Very dangerous women. Who looked at the world through their wide dreamer-eyes and saw it not as it was, brutal, senseless, etc, but worse, as it might be or might yet become. So insatiable women. Un-pleasable women." —Taiye Selasi, from "Ghana Must Go"
