At work I was pointing at a white appliance. Next to this appliance was my CEO who has no clue who I am. I forgot what this appliance was called and pointed at it and referred to it as "that white guy over there." Naturally everybody, including the CEO, thought I was referring to him. That was slightly horrifying.
I love music and shamelessly take my Beats headphones everywhere I go. My friends laugh at me because I usually play music clearly not targeted at the consumer for these headphones- Regina Spektor, Metric, Arcade Fire, Fiona Apple, Vampire Weekend, Amy Winehouse, etc.
I try to take at least one international and one domestic trip a year. So far my favorite destinations have been Ibiza, Rome and Los Angeles.
I was raised in Long Island which is an extreme source of embarrassment- pan to Rosie O'Donnell, Lindsay Lohan and Billy Joel. I try to remember Natalie Portman was raised there to make myself feel better. I now live in Astoria.
In my spare time I like visiting art museums, listening to live music (can be anything from Arcade Fire to the opera), trying different restaurants and wine bars and trying new things in general.
I am hoping to meet fun and smart people to hang out with that like music, art, film and/or sushi.
