I like my food spicy, my whisky neat, and my humor dry. Few things are better than starting my day with a good, fast run.
I get nerdy about design, technology, and good movies (almost anything with a high Rotten Tomatoes rating). I'm also a bit of a Francophile.
Otherwise, I'm making the most of the city - out for dinner, drinks, a movie, a show... all the typical New York things people do with their disposable income.
And I speak fluent French, having studied in Paris. Parles-tu français aussi?
Movies - I'm mad for indies, sci-fi, and anything that makes you think. Lately that's been The Lobster, Captain Fantastic, and The Nice Guys. But Marvel's films, Nightcrawler, Tarantino, and the Coen brothers, all have a special place in my heart.
Shows - Curb Your Enthusiasm, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Veep, Breaking Bad, and the West Wing are some all-time favorites. Trying to find time for The Night Of, Narcos, and Stranger Things.
Music - Jazz, rock, indie, random bits of electro. Miles Davis to Caravan Palace, via Girl Talk, Manu Chao, DJ Shadow, Tame Impala... And a randomly awesome indie summer Spotify playlist I put together.
Food & Drink - Italian, Mexican, and Thai are my favorites, but I love trying new cuisines. The spicier the better. I like pinot grigio, whisky (neat pour), and any well-made cocktail.
- New York's food, drink and culture
- A good flat white
- My running shoes
- My passport (and work visa)
- Chili. Did I mention I like my food spicy?
Escaping the city for a weekend getaway. Or just taking a cooking class.
Or, if it's been a *really* long week, crashing at home with Seamless's finest, some wine, and a movie.
You're active, ambitious, and eternally curious about the world - and have a passion you want to share.
You want to skip the small talk.
