Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m different from most people you’ve met, I don’t fit into one box
easily and I rather it that way. Born in the Caribbean but raised
in the US, I enjoy both cultures and I feel at home in either
place. I’m a proud Cornell grad and I’m one of the few natives of
the DC area.
Recently when I was telling someone about all my hobbies they asked
me the question “do you ever sleep??” It was funny because it was
largely true. I somehow manage to never get enough sleep, and I
really do like a lot of different things. I wish there were more
hours in a day to do them all!
You could find me training for a half marathon or crazy overnight
relay, doing some paid event photography or taking engagement
photos, attending some playoff game of one of the major sports
(I’ve been to NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB), traveling to see friends or to
the World Cup (I was in Brazil!), canvassing for democrats,
volunteering somewhere, dressing up for a black tie event and
participating in a dance off on the dance floor, getting muddy as
hell while caving, staying at home and playing nerdy games online
with friends. I’m up for almost anything and I take the time to be
good at whatever I’m interested in. I’m the kind of person that is
either totally into something or generally not into it all. If I’m
doing something I want to do my very best and I’d like to be one of
the best at it.
We’ll probably get along if you like some of the following::
sports, politics, current affairs, fashion, social issues,
philosophical debates, running, photography, discovering new
restaurants. I get along best with people who have a thirst for
learning and a curiosity for the world around them. Wanting to know
how things work is a big part of what I loved about studying

Why do people bother writing “I like to laugh” on here, is there a
large subset of people that DON’T enjoy laughing that I’ve never
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully dancing, I LOVE to dance. Either that or I'm trying a new
restaurant or attending some event. I like to be social and out and
about although a night in is good now and then to recharge as well.
I tend to prefer dressier places than dives.
