My self-summary
I like quirky, subtle and sarcastic humor, discovering new places, new foods, new people and figuring out how things work. I've got my life in order and know what I want out of it, but I still make sand castles when I go to the beach. I love to explore and travel but make habits out of the favorite places and foods that I find.

I play a lot of Ultimate Frisbee despite the rain, snow or heat. I'm a computer nerd but I love public speaking and eloquent debate. I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it. I grew up in Minnesota, went to school and lived out on the East coast, spent a few years in Seattle and moved back to NYC a year ago.

I like meeting smart, passionate people who are happy with their lives. I love to cook and spend a lot of time pondering the zen of seasoning cast iron skillets. According to Meyer Briggs I'm an ENTP and I own that like Garfield owns hating Mondays or Steve Carell owns "that's what she said".

A partner in crime would be awesome. No, really, come rob a bank with me: I need a lookout.

To lift a quote from Sherlock: "Stop boring me and think. It's the new sexy."
What I’m doing with my life
Life is all about learning, laughing, loving and lexploring.

For a job, I've worked on wall street, at major tech companies, startups and started a software company that helps utilities run their energy efficiency programs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: Rick and Morty, Bojack Horseman, Sherlock, Arrested Development, House of Cards, 30 Rock, Key and Peele, Louie, Archer, pretty much anything on HBO, Trigger Happy TV

Random Things: koala infestations, The Economist, xkcd, a softer world, saturday morning breakfast club

Food: I love all sorts of cuisines and love exploring new restaurants all over town and all over the world. In Seattle I was a human yelp but here I'm just starting to explore. Picking a favorite cuisine is super hard but if pressed, I'll go with Persian or Szechuan.
The six things I could never do without
Two categories:
Round things - a frisbee, a cast iron skillet, blueberries
Wide expanses - new places and ideas to explore, the internets, hardwood floors
On a typical Friday night I am
Working on the DeLorean. Just have to watch out for the Libyans. What, too soon?
You should message me if
...you are sarcastic and candid. Ideally you get Mitch Hedberg, Louis CK and John Oliver.

...you've either seen more of the world than just your home town or desperately want to. Your idea of an amazing meal is more than the Cheesecake Factory or TGI Friday's.

...you are curious and passionate about something even if it's not your job. You've figured out at least something about yourself, but might still not be sure who you want to be when you grow up.
