My self-summary
I'm a bit of a cultural and geographic mutt who found his home finally in New York City after growing up in Alaska (Yes, I could see Russia from my house...). Went to Brown and Columbia U and now find myself approaching my 10 year anniversary of living in New York City, which I still have not fallen out of love with.
What I’m doing with my life
Marketing geek at a large TV media company and trying to enjoy a full, fun life.
I’m really good at
Not to brag but my juggling is pretty decent and I have one magic trick that astounds!

On a serious note, I've always had a knack of getting along with a wide range of people from all walks of life. How I was raised and my background had a role in this, but this is one trait that people have pointed out as a consistent quality to my personality and social circles throughout my life.

Lastly, I like to think my moonwalk is somewhat respectable.
The first things people usually notice about me
As soon as people find out my last name, they all ask the same question.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My bookshelf is crowded with the usuals: Murakami, Kundera, Ishiguro, Eggers, DFW, Rushdie, Roth, Klosterman, Capote, Foer, Kundera, Diaz, Chabon, and that one really trashy beach novel.

I absolutely love documentaries regardless of topic: the more obscure or random the better. A documentary on crosswords? Shut up and take my money!

I tend to prefer the smaller "artsy" films of the sort that play at Angelika or those of say Woody Allen (Absolutely love "Manhattan" and "Annie Hall"), but I also thoroughly enjoy the popcorn flicks.

I'm a PBS junkie (Frontline, Nova, Nature, Charlie Rose, etc). Antique Roadshow is my jam! I also enjoy my Sunny in Philadelphia, Modern Family, and The League.

Based on my mood my preferences range from hip hop to jazz. Specifically, I'm a fan of Wilco, Kanye, XX, Snoop (Lion?), Ryan Adams, Tribe Called Quest, Eels, John Mayer (Don't judge), and Frank Ocean.

In the meantime, I'm still waiting for Postal Service to stop being so freakin' lazy and release a new album.

I love going to art galleries, exhibit openings and museums (mainly for the opportunity to take a silly posed photo in front of an absurd art installation).

One of my favorite things about living in NYC is taking advantage of the vibrant and constantly changing food scene. I'm always craving the comfort food of places like Ippudo, Spotted Pig or KTown, but I really enjoy exploring the latest cuisine and food options this City has to offer. As long as the dish doesn't have cauliflower in it, I'm game for trying it.
Six things I could never do without
Contacts or glasses...unless you want to be my seeing-eye person.
Fine spirits and food
Close friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
It's like a snow globe of thoughts floating in my head. I have conversational ADD but in a good way, if that's possible.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm typically either finishing up a bike ride after work or the gym before 1) heading off to meet friends for great food and drinks; 2) hitting up a a bar which could be a dive, a sports bar or the occasional bottle service type-a-thing; 3) crush Snoop's "Gin and Juice" or Brian McKnight's "Back at One" at karaoke or norebang; 4) watching my Knicks at MSG; 5) or hibernating at home. I love doing all of the above equally.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can spend hours following the rabbit hole that are Wikipedia articles.
You should message me if
