Hey, I'm Michael! About me: I love to learn. I have a BA from Penn State, a Master's degree from Notre Dame, and I am pursuing my Ph.D. at NYU. I try to stay in good shape. I enjoy weight lifting, biking, running, swimming, volleyball, and baseball. I also enjoy all sorts of other activities: cultural events, the outdoors, road trips, movies, eating, etc. I like to have fun. I have a sarcastic, witty sense of humor. I appreciate irony, paradox, and randomness. I like to explore and discover new things (life's an adventure!). I enjoy meaningful conversation and meeting new people. I am kind and caring. I'm a great listener. (My Myers-Briggs personality type is ISFJ. And I love ice cream.) :) Nice to meet you!
