My self-summary
Let's say -- "unconventional."

I am not an Andy to your April. I am a Jim to your Pam.

Good cook (so I've heard), (psuedo-)intellectual, lover of going to the movies, fun to go to dive bars with, funny and maybe even charming if you can get past my dry sense of humor and work well with its darker sides

What I’m doing with my life
My degree is in political science, economics and philosophy. Really trying to avoid going back to school, but that day keeps getting closer and closer.

I work as a data scientist for a digital publishing-advertising company. (Some data scientists are actually scientists with Ph.D.'s and everything; I've managed to con my way into their ranks). On an average day, I am working in several programming languages, engineering shit, and maybe even using an algorithm or two. It's pretty exciting.

I once really wanted to be a writer. I am not, but I still maintain a great love of the written word and their forms. Typography fascinates me, sentence rhythms, an ornate but descriptive Latin-derived word, and a well-placed semi-colon are precious.

A lot of my time is spent on politics in one form or another, reading books, comparing arguments with close friends, and organizing in a socialist group here in Brooklyn. So hopefully you have some proclivity to thinking about those things!
I’m really good at
Being a really serious boy
The first things people usually notice about me
At home it probably would've been "well-dressed," but sadly I'm only average in New York :(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
99% of my reading is non-fiction, though every year or two I did end up knocking down a series of 5 or 7 fiction books for light reading. I tend to read lots of books by Verso -- radical theory -- and works by famous communists of history. Zizek, Badiou, Jodi Dean, Noam Chomsky. Lots and lots of history and political economy. Herman Hesse, Hunter S. Thompson, Oscar Wilde.

This used to say "drinking," but now it's more often making a complicated dinner with my Macbook on the stool
