My self-summary
I grew up in Massachusetts, went to business school in Boston, had a quick two year pit stop in Grand Rapids, MI, four in DC, and now find myself pretty happily in Manhattan.

I spend time pretending I’m a kid again by playing sports in rec leagues around town.  Right now is basketball.  I play sports videogames online with my little cousins, mostly because there are few other ways to assert dominance over them from a few hundred miles away, which is important.  Speaking of sports, like every guy ever, I play fantasy football.  Fun fact: in one of my leagues, the loser’s only obligation to the rest of the league is that they have to re-take the SATs.  Luckily, I have never come in last place, but I will, and I’m terrified.
I know lots of really unfunny jokes, and I always start telling them when I get drunk.    I was awkwardly old when I found out cars with cruise control don’t drive themselves.  I have a good memory, but can never remember anyone’s name until the thousandth time that I’ve met them.  I hate mustard, and olives.  I read magazines starting from the back, and can say the alphabet backwards (that concludes the backwards section of this introduction).  I’m generally pretty handy in figuring things out, but coffeemakers are my kryptonite, they befuddle me. Donatello was (who am I kidding, is) my favorite Ninja Turtle.
What I’m doing with my life
Pretty normal thirtysomething stuff, I guess.
I’m really good at
Scrabble, pretending to be busy, cooking scallops.
The first things people usually notice about me
...is that when they see me I'm probably not watching where I'm going. I'm also really polite.

The six things I could never do without
My Music Collection - All forms, but most specifically my old records.
Sportscenter - As a displaced Bostonian, it's the best way to keep up with my teams.
Smartphone - This really goes without saying, but I'd be lost without it.
Netflix/Hulu/On Demand - I'm allergic to remembering when the shows I like are on, this takes care of that.
Animals Wearing People Clothes - Just kidding, making sure you're still paying attention.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to harness the power of the effect rain/snow has on DC drivers, to use for my own personal gain.
On a typical Friday night I am
Every one is different. If I'm at home in MA, I'm probably watching a movie in front of the fireplace, here in VA I'm probably at a bar with friends or exploring the city.

This is of course unless the Red Sox or Celtics are playing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I consider Die Hard to be a Christmas movie.
You should message me if
You have a good sense of humor, and are looking for someone to spend time and explore the city with.
