He’s white, skinny, about six-foot-two, 170 pounds; 34 years old with shaggy dark hair. Chestnut eyes. He’s slightly unkempt–his fingernails are too long, and he possibly has dandruff. He rents an apartment in Lincoln Square. He’s not the snobbish type. Likes public radio, but he probably listened to Rush when he was in high school. Talks to his family once a week. Widely traveled, allergic to cats.

–Sean Copeland, 35, Brown Line
