My self-summary
I like challenging myself intellectually and otherwise, but also having a good time. I value my close connections.

I've lived in Russia, Brooklyn and Ohio, and each of those places played a big part in making me who I am today.

I'm happy with my body. I climb, play sports (like basketball and racquetball) and work out (Olympic lifts are probably the most fun). I also like backpacking and being outdoors. I'm really into the music I like and love going to shows. I love museums and other culture stuff.

Most of my opinions lean heavily left of center, but I've never fit in with the liberal tribe. I prefer someone who is thoughtful about their personal opinions and can understand and relate to alternative viewpoints rather than someone who shares my beliefs. Most important is the ability to look past political issues and see everyone as individuals.

I try to do everything in moderation, including moderation.
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished a PhD in Quantitative Psychology. It's exciting to be back in Brooklyn after so many years.

I'm doing things that are related to my PhD at a tech company. But that's just a side gig. My full time job is trying to get through the New Yorker before I get the next one. It's a sisyphean task.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: BREAD! I love bread. Bread is the bread of life and the salt of the earth. Bread is very well bred.

I like lots of movies. Coen brothers, Aronofsky, weird indie films... Under the Skin was a good one.

TV shows: Black Mirror and Rick and Morty, I also really like Twin Peaks, Always Sunny and a few others.

Bands: Grouplove, Wilco, Joy Division, the Wrens, Wolf Parade, Lucius, Ought. Recently, I've been working on getting into jazz with mixed success.

Books: Infinite Jest. The Corrections. Super Sad True Love Story
You should message me if
You've got a sense of humor about all of the things. Also if you're good at all of the things.

I'm not always the most emotionally expressive person, but I try to learn how to be better about that. So it would be good to meet someone who can challenge me in that regard.

Basically, I'm pretty fun/creative/interesting/weird but I also got my shit together. If your soul is tortured, but not too much (you partake in soul tortured-ness moderation), we'd probably get along.
