Update: just moved to White Plains for a new job as a data analyst for a hedge fund (40 mins by metro north from NYC). Full profile update to come.
I’m here in an attempt to meet people outside of my usual circle/comfort zone. Message me to find out what I'm really like, but to sum up my existence in a few words:
I graduated from Cooper Union with a degree in Civil Engineering, didn’t learn much, and decided to put my mathematical and problem-solving skills to use at a financial data internet startup. I’ve been there for 2 years now and it’s been a fun ride, starting out as the second employee and since growing to a team of 15+. So, safe to say, I’m pretty nerdy. I like numbers and logical reasoning (something that women always seem to defy). I’m extremely analytical and strategic, so I have a habit of overthinking things.
I’m very straightforward/honest and say really stupid things sometimes. I’m very goal-oriented and like progress and personal growth. I like to look back and see all I have accomplished, and if I’m in the same place a year from now, I will be dissatisfied. There's not very many people like me out there. I value truth and knowledge above all else. But I also value connecting with people. I was shy growing up, but have since learned to be aggressive in going after what I want. Hence, I’m here, hoping to meet some cool people.
Interests: gym, one-on-one conversations, learning what makes a person tick, petting animals, Facebook, drinking alcohol
I like really outgoing/carefree girls who have a lot to say and aren’t afraid to say it.
