My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been in Hartford almost a year, and it is starting to become my home. For at least the next six months I will be a project coordinator on a reworking of a major federal institution. I LOVE my career and the work I'm doing now, especially. I'm at home in nature or in the city; I just love experiencing new adventures. I am passionate, but not wreckless. I am totally in favor of trading meals prepared with the kitchen techniques I aquired while putting myself through undergrad for back rubs or having you read me a chapter of a decent novel. I'm soaking New England in via a spiral pattern starting at Hartford's West End, and I would love to find a partner to join in the fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated with a political science degree from a small liberal arts college in Grand Rapids. Everyone from the head of the department on down assured me it would be a hard sell on the job market, but I'm doing a decent job turning it into a career, if by increments. I worked as a campaign coordinator in the 2012 election in Missouri. I helped get a Senator get reelected in the most talked about campaign in the country during a Presidential election cycle (I understand the apolitical will dismiss the coolness of this; I have done other super-neat stuff too!). After toasting to our victory, I got a job here in Hartford, and it looks like I will be working here as a coordinator for a major government project for the foreseeable future.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I was going to say "writing," but if I do that and fail to deliver I've pretty well blown it haven't I? How about reciting movie, music and television trivia? I am great at making movie theater quality popcorn (worked at a theater in high school). I'm good at finding excuses to mention the 2004, U.S.-backed coup against democratically elected Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide (see?). I'm also good at helping people solve problems and defending my positions discursively, which stem from me trying hard to be a good listener.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My long eyelashes, curly hair if it is long enough, and tan skin.

Unless I'm doing the splits at the time. Then they notice I am flexible.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Some type of Android device, popcorn, reddit, my disc golf discs, KBS, and wifi.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can do better at my job, how I can better help people I care about, what I need to take care next, and if the variables in the Valentti Equation can be used to predict when the Lions will finally make it to the Super Bowl.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting a meal and a drink somewhere in Connecticut, New York, or Massachusetts; sometimes I'll do the low key thing, but not often on Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a laser printer named "Sven" and a pair of spud wrenches named "Lefty" and "The Tramp." I also swoon over girls who know what spud wrenches are.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think playing Scrabble and watching Netflix is a great way to spend an evening, but not every evening.

You're looking to find a road-trip or camping partner and can manage to juggle DJ and navigator duties until it's your turn to drive.

You can trust me to keep your tastes in mind when I DJ.

You want to discuss anything in my profile, or if you happen upon the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

You should also message me if you are sick of guys sending initial messages that only consist of "you're hot," "hi," or "how r u?" I know some guys are socially inept or generally incompetent, but breaking the ice is a tough gig, and I would love to see how this game looks from the other side of the table.
