My porn stage name would be Sam Clay. Actually -- and I hope this isn't a dealbreaker -- that is my porn stage name.
Less relevantly, I'm a writer, friend, brother, lover, world traveler, amateur cosmologist, unordained U.S. Grammarian Laureate, wannabe romantic, aspiring oligarch, monolingual two-time ex-pat, quintessentially coffee-slurping/Jewish-liberal-elitist Democrat, and proud member of Colbert Nation, if not the American one. Some people say I "look a little, but not really" like Don Draper "in the right light."
I take words, the environment, and third-world tragedies seriously, but not myself. I like kittens, puppies, babies, and toddlers, but not old people (they smell funny).
Most nights I run a few miles and/or hit the gym, cook up a wholesome meal (I make a mean South-of-the-Border Scramble), and watch a movie or do some work. Occasionally I get high and inhale half a jar of Nutella. (I'm not a woman, I promise.)
I'm a writer and editor by trade, but currently applying to business schools. I grew up in the Bay Area and have bounced around a lot since then: North Carolina, Thailand, New York, and most recently Shanghai, where I lived for more than a year until recently.
Since I'm brand new to this area, mostly I'm just looking to meet cool new people right now, even if it just ends up being platonic. For a first date, anything low-key that involves getting to know each other a little bit works. Generally that means drinks or coffee, but I can be more creative if need be.
