My self-summary
I'm kind of an equal mix of finance guy, flanel-wearing bearded guy, college football jock, and fresh-scone-eating motorcycle-gang thug. Essentially, I work, and enjoy life in as many ways as I possibly can when I'm not working.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in finance & love investing. I manage a portfolio for a pension fund and love what I do, even though it kills party conversation. I'm no hedge fund guy or anything (sorry gold diggers) but I'm fortunate to love what I do & work with good people. My non-working hours are spent by working out, riding the motorcycle upstate, eating brunch, and drinking margaritas around the east village. There's also a fair amount of dreaming about the business I'll start one day, or the catskills cabin I'll buy with friends.
I’m really good at
I'm a jack of all trades, master of none. I'll build you a book shelf, and it'll be nearly level. I dabble in photography & video editing, music playing, recording, and editing. I'm a good cook as long as it's mexican, involves a grill, or a crockpot. I enjoy being the guy that makes amazing margaritas & old fashioneds at parties. I have a motorcycle & ride pretty much every day. Most importantly, I value having great friendships, open and honest sharing of ideas & perspectives, meeting interesting people, and taking in all life has to offer. Oh... and of course, travel. but everyone likes to travel.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually that I'm tall. And hopefully that I don't carry a pungent odor with me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Dostoyevsky, Tom Robbins, Malcolm Gladwell, finance blogs.

Movies: I'm not a huge movie buff... But I like stuff that is unique and has an original story... Or stars Zach Galifianakis.

TV: Archer, Archer, newsroom, homeland, 30 rock, and archer.

Music: Bon iver, the national, foster the people, broken social scene... Eh lots of others in that vein...
Six things I could never do without
Good Bourbon, passport, a motorcycle, cat videos on YouTube, good salsa, pandora radio.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately... Politics, income inequality, my orphaned nieces & nephews in Kenya, helping friends with their 401k investing, where to go for the next meal / drink with friends, why people walk so slow, and which is a better burger; in-n-out, five guys, or [insert the latest $17 burger at rustic-yet-kinda-fancy brooklyn establishment].
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends somewhere with a tasty beverage in hand.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once burnt the eyebrow & eyelashes off of my right eye with a potato gun. oops.
You should message me if
You're really into tall bearded guys. You're not scared of the back seat of a ducati. You have an opinion on everything and you want to start a friendly debate. You talk a thousand miles an hour and sometimes freak people out. You tend to offend people with your humor.
The two of us
