I'm from the SF bay area but have been in DC a while doing work I believe in. Got my dream job, a leadership position in the federal government. Quit recently in favor of self-employed consulting and a saner life.
Random things about me:
-- Want to leave the world better than I found it. Hard to do but I like trying.
-- Funny in a dry way, mostly to entertain myself.
-- Done triathlons and century rides but not a fanatic. OK, maybe I alternate between dedicated and slothful.
-- Not a lawyer but written plenty of laws.
-- Solid liberal but not a ranter.
-- City mouse.
-- Probably too smart for my own good. Did college in 3 years because, well, I was impatient.
-- Been around the world. I mean all the way around. You gain a day so bring an extra change of clothes.
-- Two terrific teenage boys I'm with part time. You'd have to be cool with that but it's not hard because they're awesome.
-- Write sentences without pronouns.
What I'm not:
-- Your dream dance partner. A lot of women on here LOVE to dance but it's just not my thing.
-- I own a tuxedo (hey, it's DC) but wearing it is NOT a priority.
-- Adventurous eater but not a "foodie." You could teach me!
There you have it: a list of stuff that doesn't really matter in the end. But what can you do? We're all here anyway giving it our best shot.
