My self-summary
Immigrant originally from Wellington NZ, in New York for jobs, new experiences and pizza.
What I’m doing with my life
Just started at the recurse centre, where I'll be for the next 3 months. I'm hoping to get some work done on a project that I've been working on/thinking about for awhile now.
I’m really good at
I thing I'm fairly good at interesting one on one conversations, though group conversation isn't so hot.

I've been working on various self-improvement goals in the areas of career, health and fitness. I've had some set backs, but I'm getting back on track.

Also computer stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Australian accent (I'm from New Zealand).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Not a big fan of comic book movies, I usually prefer character driven festivalish movies.

For TV it's serious dramas like The Wire or silly cartoons like Rick and Morty.

With music, I like the usual indie bands like Arcade Fire, some rap and some classical. Apart from that I've been getting into metal bands lately e.g. Pallbearer and Vektor

I'm getting into Ramen and Barbeque, also Mexican food when it's done well.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How hot it is and how I wish this room had air conditioning.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ideally out seeing a band, having a pint or 2 at a neighbourhood bar with a friend, otherwise just chilling watch tv.
You should message me if
Any beginner to New York advice would be appreciated.

You know some place/thing in New York I should go to/do that isn't shown on TV. Especially interested in great places to eat.

You're interested in wide ranging conversation, I won't bore you with computer stuff unless you insist.

You're down to earth, have an absurd sense of humour, aren't overly serious and maybe a little bit ambitious.

You want to meet in real life reasonably quickly, a quick coffee is ideal for a first meet.
