My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a driven, hardworking young professional. I have a lot of energy and try to focus it on positive endeavors. I'm good at making other people crack up, but if that doesn't happen, making myself laugh is okay, too. I'm an advocate of social change and self change.

For the first time I my adult life, I feel "grown up"...or, rather, that I'm making a concerted effort to be. I've gone through some major life changes the past year and am better for it. I've learned that the best way to live is without suffering from constant expectations. If you really care about something, put your full weight behind it. But oftentimes we put too much stock in affairs that aren't worthy of our attention, or that deserve very little of it, or that are not within our control. And if that's the case, let it go. (Google the article, "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck." It's wonderful, practical, and illuminative).

I've been a spontaneous person most of my life, and in key spots. Thus, in order to fulfill my innate desire to find balance, I now find myself eagerly becoming a slave to structure and routines. For example, I hit up the gym nearly every day. I try and play music every day, too.

I'm a father to a beautiful 11 year old son that I'm blessed to have every other weekend. I had him when I was 17, and although it's always been a struggle, it's been a gift as well. I'm hoping all the good in me shines through in him and that he can learn the lessons that I learned in life without having to experience them the way I did.

I love discussing philosophy and politics. I like finding common ground. I'm a feminist, a radical, a conservative, and a libertarian sinulataneously. I love reading utopian/dystopian novels, watching videos on quantum theory, and keeping current on the news in the U.S and abroad.

While I don't have a roadmap in life -I believe that kind of dreaming is an attachment that can cause suffering down the road- I do have a sense of where I want to be. I love Vermont. I think it's the most beautiful place on earth. I think I want to settle in and have a family here.

I'm a very passionate person. I've been accused of being an "intellectual," but that's only when I slow down -which rarely occurs. I like good beer, good music, and good ideas.

I'm looking for someone that's not necessarily similar to me, and doesn't necessarily have the same interests, but someone who has the same trajectory, who's on the same wavelength. Everyone always asks for the same traits in their partners-which makes sense, because we're all programmed similarly, and we all want to be loved. But not everyone knows what they're really looking for, and if they do, they don't always ask for it.

I know what I need. I need someone that is smart, compassionate, and above all else, kind. I hope you're out there. Are you?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been working in the field of politics and non-profits my entire adult life in various management positions. I love it. It's addictive. I also love music. I have an 11 year old son who I spend time with every other weekend, which usually means getting destroyed in board games.

My current job is as the state field director of a non-profit. I have a B.A. in political science and an M.A. in sustainable development, both of which serve me well in my job. I manage a team of four people and love what I do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing. Except on this website, obviously, which has a tendency of making everything awkward. Exercise. I go for a run or go to the gym every night. Cards Against Humanity. What's fun game.

I can write a fully usable field plan for a cause/campaign in my sleep. I'm a nerd like that.

I can also play guitar well and sing a decent melody.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ending the oppressive aspects of capitalism. Actualizing my potential. Finding an amazing partner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Thinking about how this is a typical OK Cupid setup question. They either want you to profess to being a hell-raising drunkard, or someone that's too cool for school ("I like to knit and read self-help articles), or someone in between. Well...I guess I'm in between. (For the record, I don't knit. And last Friday I drank an almond scotch and cherry Coke and watched a movie, going to bed at around 9:30.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I actually think there's an outside chance of going out on more than just a first date with someone on here. Although, up until this point, that hasn't happened.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've read (suffered through) all of my essays and believe that we might have a shot. You're not in a "what the hell, might as well see, huh?" mood when you message me.

You use proper grammar...or, if that goes out the window, you're entertaining as fuck.

You're a spiritual person.

You're a kind person.

You want to change the world. Or just yourself.
