I'm a laid back, but hard working guy who is much more interesting
than this profile would suggest. I have a good sense of humor, I'm
work-focused but not obsessed, enjoy trying the newest places to
eat and drink in DC, hanging out with friends, reading, running and
What I’m doing with my life
Working on U.S. national security and development issues. Generally
speaking, I work in the international relations field. You know,
very unique for DC. Besides that running the occasional marathon or
out having a good beer friends.
I’m really good at
Writing...except writing about myself, lightening the mood with a
good joke when needed, dancing (kind of) and choosing awesome
restaurants and bars for fun dates.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, and I smile a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books oscillate between fiction to US politics to random
nonfiction. I try to keep up with the New York Times, the Atlantic,
and the New Yorker. I'm an avid fan of Mad Men and the Wire.
For movies, I like suspense, usually on the darker, political/indie
side. Some of my favorites are Michael Clayton, The Descendants and
Music-wise I like Arcade Fire, BlackStar, Miles Davis, Chet
Baker...but really anything with a good beat that I can run to.
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends
The New Yorker
A sixth option
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Future plans, where I'd like to travel to next, what new furniture
I need for my new apartment (interior design recos welcomed!), the
next time I can get up to the Cape, why tourists in DC walk so
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, relaxing after a long week or exploring a new
restaurant in the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I owned the Whitney Houston Body Guard soundtrack. (Go ahead judge
