I am the oldest of six, the product of a Catholic upbringing, and a reluctant yuppie.
I'm equal parts sentimental and skeptical. Honest almost to a fault. Loyal, gathering a close group of friends and a closer partner. I'll look for friendship here as eagerly as I search for a relationship. That said, I need to focus on my personal life as much as I have my career (much more?).
I was a lifelong Chicagoan until a about two years ago. I grew up in the Southwest Suburbs, went to school in Evanston, lived in the city, and moved back to Evanston for grad school.
Recently graduated, I moved to Seattle for work in summer 2012. I interned in Seattle before that and fell in love with the Northwest. I'm looking for an eager tour guide to deepen my love for the city. What a two years it's been!
Having lived in town for a short while, I've enjoyed the ample foodie options, ski slopes in driving range rather than in Midwest corn fields, hiking and kayaking near and far, and road trips to wine country, Vancouver and much more.
I think my match is someone level-headed but quirky. Right now, I'm hoping for someone different, looking for a catch who's smart, ambitious, a talker, and not afraid to laugh at himself and everything around him at the same time. If you can match my sense of dark, dry, slightly offbeat sense of humor, we're golden. Say hi.
