My self-summary
I'm not really good at this online dating thing, and would much rather meet in person so if we seem to click, let's make an effort to grab a drink and a bite instead. I've been told I'm much better in person.

I'm a SF bay area local who's been living in nyc for 6+ years. I love my neighborhood spots and enjoy jazz, wine, beer, cooking, and hanging with my friends. Weekend mornings usually involve listening to live music and brunching. I also know this place with an amazing lobster roll and $.92 cocktails...

I enjoy bike rides, golfing, puzzles, skiing, a range of other random fun activities, and reading a good book on the beach. I also love a good meal, either making it or eating it.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying life and exploring NYC. Also, figuring out a nice work life balance. I do have to admit though, I like where I work, and I like where I am in life!

This year will involve a lot of international traveling, but it's so exciting! Maybe we can do it together or meet somewhere!
I’m really good at
Cooking. Knowing who I am and what I want. Also being a nerd (had to remove the word 'closet' because I actually am). also, amazing listener, advice giver and friend, according to my friends... so take that with a grain of salt!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to count but just finished. Windup Girl, not to be confused with the windup bird.

I also love the "Best Short Stories of..." series.

more into fiction since our daily life reads like non-fiction...
Six things I could never do without
Let's be real. are we talking about what we actually can never do without? what if we asked which five senses can you do without? I'd say, I need them all!

but I guess if we are talking about material stuff,

foam mattress
foam pillow - we spend at least 1/3 of our lives. come on! let's be realistic
gas stove
a very sharp chef's knive
Internet enabled phone
library of endless books

non-material stuff? you can ask me :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future. From the career perspective, the what meal to cook perspective, the who would like a drink with me perspective, and the many other what-if-i-was-in-their-shoes perspective.

Also, I think about what is going on in the world today, and why we are in the situation we are in.

I also think about this: oh my, it'd be nice to meet someone that's awesome, compatible and we are into each other!
On a typical Friday night I am
Really varies depending on the mood and the company but likely kicking off happy hour with friends and then... well guess I'll just have to take you with me on one of my 'typical Friday nights'
You should message me if
You know who you are, want to deactivate your okcupid account as much as I do, and enjoyed reading what you read. and if you didn't, at least wasn't appalled and think I'm kinda okay! jk. I'm awesome!

Also, if you want to go on a trip to hokkaido this winter for ski/snowboard, sushi, and meeting people from all over the world!

Or you're just super cool and awesome. that works, too!
The two of us
