My self-summary
Non-finance guy who works in finance anyway. For now.
Unapologetic nerd (but not so much that I can't put an outfit together).
Addicted to weird fun kinds of exercise.
Host of world-renowned game nights.
GGG, sex-positive, and feminist.
And most importantly, the sole proprietor of the infinity bathroom.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a computer scientist who got lured into high-speed trading. It's pretty fun; there's a lot of yelling. It's also nice to be able to fund my creative pursuits and/or bubble tea habit (there are two places ON MY BLOCK. I'm not made of stone.)

Non-day-job-work-type-stuff: theater producer, real estate investor.

My go-to for physical activity is acroyoga (for the uninitiated, it's a non-boring type of yoga where you get all Cirque Du Soleil). Rock climbing is also fun, but I stick to bouldering. Ain't nobody got time for all those ropes.

Here’s what I really want to be doing: feeding a sloth a grape. I saw this happen on Conan once, and it was like I suddenly had a new calling in life. If you have access to a sloth, please message me immediately.
I’m really good at
Snowboarding. Relatively. I only started five years ago but what I lack in technical prowess I make up for in sheer willingness to go down whatever.

Improv. I performed in the city for a few years and catch shows whenever I can.

Settlers. I'll trade you sheep for wood so fast you'll wish you'd worn protection.

Feeding grapes to sloths. True, I haven't tried it yet, but it's the kind of thing I could see myself naturally being really good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
The fact that I make direct eye contact and smile.

The last thing they notice is that I stole their wallet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read, but my tastes are all over the place. I’ll dive into some behavioral psychology, then a political thriller, and then some quirky fiction. If I had to pick one favorite it would be Pride and Prejudice, sans zombies.

As far as TV goes, there is only one show that anybody needs to ever watch: Twin Peaks. When I finished I threw the TV in the garbage, but then I got another one in case I ever have a guest over who hasn't seen it. (With enough arm-twisting I'll admit that I also really like Bob's Burgers, Freaks and Geeks, and Lie To Me. And there will always be a special place in my heart for Pete and Pete.)

I listen to a lot of girl-fronted punk bands and kind of have crushes on all of them.

I'd call myself a foodie if I didn't hate the word so much. My MO is usually to get a bunch of small plates because I don't want to have to pick just one thing. For special occasions I’m a big fan of tasting menus, but otherwise a good bowl of ramen and some shrimp buns can make my whole day.
The six things I could never do without
Happy, Dopey, Sleepy, Grumpy, Bashful, and Doc.

Sneezy is dead to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Happiness. What it really means, how to achieve it, how directly related it is to chocolate chip pancakes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was in the 5th grade I got the lead in the class play. I was VERY proud of myself, although my family moved in the middle of the school year and I didn’t actually get to perform. Looking back, it was probably for the best - the play was the Rosa Parks story and as the only white kid in my class I was cast as the bus driver. Maybe not the shining accolade I thought it was.
You should message me if
I think it's obvious, but just in case I need to spell it out: you have access to a sloth that hangs adorably from a garment rack and is hungry for a grape. Simple as that.
