My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll admit something right up front - I'm a guy who loves Dirty Dancing. Patrick Swayze is my hero in this movie. Social dancing is my number one hobby (I go out almost every night of the week), When you have a good partner, a strong connection, and let the music dissolve two people into one, there's really no other feeling like it. I perform and compete in salsa, argentine tango, and bachata, and regularly dance blues, zouk, kizomba, west coast swing, waltz, foxtrot, merengue, cha cha, texas two step, contra, line dancing (hell yeah Cotton Eyed Joe!). Part of me wants to run away to Argentina to be a tango singer and dancer.

One of the biggest items on my bucket list is to perform the routine from the movie, complete with the lift. That lift is how I motivate myself to get to the gym 4-5 times per week, I not-so-secretly keep track of my weightlifts under the codename "operationdirtydancing."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Things I have been: Godzilla; kindergarten teacher; community service day organizer; dance dance revolution champion; economist; math tutor.

Now-daytime: I moved to DC for grad school after spending a year living in Italy, and afterwards joined a mysterious private-sector intelligence firm. My family is convinced I'm working for one or more of the Masons, Illuminati, and/or Stonecutters.

I'm also recently starting to look into fusion dancing - blending dance styles to non-traditional music. (think about blending a tango and bachata to an R&B song!). I daydream about being one half of the modern version of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers - so if you're a Neo-Rogers looking for your Neo-Astaire, let's talk!

I've also done various forms of martial arts (aikido/krav maga mostly) for most of my life - it's basically just like dancing, except instead of protecting your partner, you punch them.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Besides dance, I'm a pretty decent singer and guitar player (though I need to practice more).

Buying plane tickets. I always need to have at least one in my email. Sicily coming up soon, and then maybe Ireland!

I've been weightlifting regularly for a little less than a year and have surprised myself by how enjoyable that's gotten (though it helps to have dance as a motivator).

I used to compete in tennis, but it's been ages since I've played. I'd love to meet someone who wanted to play though, I'd be super curious to pick it up again!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently that I am a tour guide (I'm not). I get asked for directions everywhere. I think it's the glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Sarcastic people
Empathetic people
Someone to listen to
Someone to joke with
A place to dance
My FAFAFAF (My F**king Awesome Friends and Family...and Fajitas)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the world is how it is. Why people are as they are. How can we improve things. Wondering if am I earning my time here.

Also, we have sesame seeds, but what the heck is a sesame?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Some recent Fridays: jazz bar, salsa dance, west coast swing dancing, milonga (tango), contra dance, National Theater, shabbat dinner (more social than religious for me), Disneyland, house party, watching a movie with some friends, cooking a big meal for a bunch of friends then playing Rock Band and Mario Kart on my old school, still functioning, Nintendo 64.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not so private: I fully believe chivalry and romance are not dead. Learning tango I was taught "you are the frame. she is the painting." I completely support the feminist movement, and enjoy exploring boundaries in dance (ask me about switch dancing!), but I am not afraid to admit that I embrace many traditional "masculine" qualities. That said, I love intelligent, strong, independent women who can challenge me and push me - but if you'll get offended by me opening a door, pulling out a chair, walking on the road side of the sidewalk, or other such gestures, we won't work.

Rather private: I was extremely skinny for most of my life. Dance, especially my desire to work with aerials/lifts, has gotten me into shape recently (though I still want to get better!) - to the point that I was really tempted to do a bathroom selfie on here. Anyone who has ever struggled with body image will understand that desire (hey, we're proud!). But it still is tacky, so I didn't. Plus, on the one in a billion chance I ever run for office, might not be the best idea! But I did think about it...shhhhh!
