My self-summary
"To be or not to be - that's not a question" - Godard

I've been in New York for ten years and in Brooklyn for three. Originally from Minneapolis (but not generally accused of having Midwestern sensibilities). Lover of Brooklyn, but hopefully not in the cliche'd way.

I like film, sarcasm and (inappropriate) humor, greenmarkets, authentic restaurants and bars with character.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to manage the contradictions.

I work in finance. I had planned to be a professor (humanities). I ended up analyzing companies in mergers. Sometimes you eat the bar, sometimes the bar eats you.

Trying to decorate my new apartment. A seemingly never-ending task.
I’m really good at
Conversations about the abstract

At a neighborhood bar
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'n not on Facebook
You should message me if
You are strong willed, opinionated, sarcastic, funny, or generally awesome.

Or if you think this accurately describes OKCupid:
Writings scatter to the winds blank checks in an insane charge. And were they not such flying leaves, there would be no purloined letters
The two of us
