My self-summary
Hello New York! After a few years away I am returning to the City this summer with a renewed energy and focus. I never thought I could miss a place so much. I'm alight with excitement.

About me? I'm a PR strategist and former journalist. I've traveled and lived overseas a lot, but over the years New York has become home. You are my people, and I love you for it.

I thrive on dynamism and energy, and I admire people with focus and drive. I cherish art, culture, literature, diversity, music, food, new people, stories, activity and stimulation. I love motorcycles and look forward to getting another one someday. I am absolutely indifferent to sports and religion. I take real joy in life and appreciate that quality in others. I have powerful convictions and believe that any topic can warrant robust discussion and debate. I might be convinced that I'm right about an issue, but if you present me with convincing evidence otherwise, I will always consider viewpoints on their merits. I meditate every day, enjoy yoga and hiking, and am ripping good on a snowboard (I lived in Aspen this past year).

I've lived a fascinating life thus far, and I often reflect on how lucky I've been. I think it would be nice to have someone to share it all with. If any of this interests you, if you are a thoughtful and independent person, we should talk.
What I’m doing with my life
My background is in journalism. I was a political reporter on Capitol Hill and a magazine editor in South Korea and elsewhere. Corporate communications provides more stability, so I have since migrated into the world of PR/media strategy.

Other than that, I'm just trying to find a little poetry in every day...
I’m really good at
Few things give me pleasure as much as meeting new people and learning new things; everyone has a fascinating story to tell. As a result I am comfortable in almost any social situation, and I am terribly grateful for it.

Also, I can breathe fire with kerosene. And I am a goddamn wizard in the kitchen.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a very precise manner of speech.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Camus, Nabokov, Bulgakov, Tom Wolfe, John Krakauer, some Hunter Thompson, James Michener, Tom Robbins, Ken Follett, Orwell, Emerson, literary nonfiction, occasional pulpy thrillers - I'm all over the map. Also, you should read 'Shantaram' by Gregory David Roberts.

Movies: Anything that can make me laugh, cry, think or cheer. I have a soft spot for campy horror and zombie flicks. I very much like a good documentary.

Shows: Bloodline, The West Wing, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Mad Men, Arrested Development - plus good historical documentaries, nature shows, current events, etc.

Music: My musical tastes are as broad and deep as the sea.

Food: I am a committed epicure and have dined at some of the finest restaurants in the world, and yet some of the best meals of my life have been eaten in the back alleys of third-world countries.
You should message me if
If you've made it this far, you should probably just go ahead and message me.
