I’m really good at
-all racket sports; I have insanely good eye-hand coordination
-getting a fast and usually accurate "read" on people
-conversation--the fine art of listening and making people feel understood
-holding my own in a conversation and a relationship
-making risotto
The first things people usually notice about me
big brown, hazel-flecked eyes and long eyelashes. Also, my voice--a bit lower and I'm pretty articulate and well-spoken.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Driving Miss Daisy - I love that last scene where Morgan Freeman feeds Jessica Tandy the piece of pie; Sophie's Choice; My Dinner with Andre; Vanya on 42nd Street; and more recently, The Lives of Others, Silver Linings Playbook, and just in case you're one of the few people who saw it, My Sister's Sister

Books: almost always fiction (except for Malcolm Gladwell's Blink)
and too many to list, but here's a sampler:
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Marriage Plot (Jeffery Eugenides)
Anna Karenina
Madame Bovary
all of Jane Austen
Sweet Tooth (Ian McEwan)

Bahn mi sandwich at Bon Me food truck
the weekend Surprise Donut at Sofra
thin crust pizza
poached eggs on turkey hash at Charlie's in the South End
Six things I could never do without
pizza from a wood-fired oven
rainy days
dogs, especially mutts
that moment when you know you're in love
rare fits of hysterical laughter, the kind where you feel totally drained afterward
the memory of locking eyes with my son for the first time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what it means to be a good person, and how much I wish I had a wood stove and a dog and a goat.
I'm reading Thich Nhat Han and thinking about Buddhism, and how where you put your attention really determines your experience and happiness.
On a typical Friday night I am
making dinner, picking up my son from martial arts class and scheming with a friend over the phone about how we might get sitters and see a movie or meet up for a drink...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm way better in person and that I absolutely hate filling this stuff out, but I'm trying not to complain since it's such a cliche.
You should message me if
You're genuinely funny (like in your genes), confident and competitive but also a little shy and vulnerable. Sadly, I've had a history of going for the "bad boys" but I'd like to think I'm somewhat reformed. Now, it's more like: be dependable and sane but still have an edge--not that you ride a Harley or have tattoos, just that you don't constantly check your watch, and will drop everything for a meaningful conversation. I'm drawn to athletic, physically coordinated men with poetic souls, artistic sensibilities and a knack for witty banter. Extra points if you're a generous and loving Dad.
The two of us
