Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to DC to be a hill rat. Sorry about that. I still do
politics, but for a nonprofit, and I don't have any of that
starting-out Capitol Hill self-importance.
DC, I guess, is home. I've been here for years. I can't handle the
Boston cold anymore, which makes me feel disturbingly disconnected
from my New England roots. This wasn't my plan and my eyes wander
to other cities, but good beer, good (or pleasingly bad) bars, good
friends, good venues - we've got 'em all here.
I am optimistic, pessimistic, and contradictory. And that is
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Drinking lots of coffee; doing crosswords; working; walking or
biking; hanging out; contemplating going to shows and often times
then going to them last minute.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding humor in everyday life, even when I'm in a crappy mood.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very open and honest about myself, and everything. It's a
fault. Seriously. My sense of discretion is ashamed of me.
Also, the length of my hair, both on top of my head and on my face,
changes with some regularity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books. Until recently I avoided classics, thinking they'd been
covered by others and I'd find my own way. Now I'm someone who's
read The Hunger Games books (not classics, by any means) and loves
to talk about them. One of my favorite books is very, very short,
The Mystery Guest. I love pretty much anything by Neil
TV. I like Doctor Who. Also on BBC, I watch a lot of Top Gear,
despite not being a car person in the slightest. I don't know why
either of them grabbed my attention. Is Sherlock on BBC across the
pond? Either way, maybe I'm smitten with Britain. (See what I did
there?) On our soil, Community and Archer and funniness. (I guess
Daily Show and Colbert Report, but those seem like givens.) I'm a
bit of geek, and to make it even more distressingly obvious, I'll
say that I'm really into Game of Thrones.
Music. More important than TV. But I hate listing individual bands
or artists, because I feel like it gives short shrift to other
bands and genres. I'm glad my parents instilled a love for Bob
Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel, among others. David Byrne and
Brian Eno's album from a few years is something I often go back to.
I have an abiding love for REM. LCD Soundsystem. New Pornographers.
Mountain Goats. My playlist lately has featured a lot of Tune-Yards
and Purity Ring and the new Crystal Castles.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A music listening device; Friends; A pen and paper; Pointless
learning; Some sort of camera to capture the unexpected.
The fact that the camera and music thingamajigger are currently the
same telephonic device is giving me some trouble here. Trouble not
only in the listing, but in my judgement of the worthiness of my
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Too much and too little at the same time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Concerts or house parties or bars or beer at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone once told me I look like Eliot Spitzer. I wasn't upset, but
I also want you to know that absolutely no one agreed with them.
