Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a nut for history, I get excited over museums and reading
ancient books. BA in history from Clark University, MA in history
from Providence College. Currently working for a local preservation
society part-time while I travel New England and New York for a
national office supply chain training associates on technology
I am very open minded and tolerant. I used to be introverted, but
broke out of my shell in college. For me there is no such thing as
getting lost, I just go on adventures. Without my GPS I tend to go
on a LOT of adventures. Actions speak louder than words. I
understate my emotions, abilities, and talents. I feel accomplished
when I fix things around the house and for family.
I have a strong attraction to Desi (Indian) culture, people, and
food. People think I'm a pagal gora because I'm looking for a ladki
to call my sundari sitara. Mere saath bhangra karogi? Además, me
encanta España, la cultura castellano y La Liga. I cook Middle
Eastern, Hispanic, and Desi food. FC Barcelona is a passion.
I'm an independent, industrious, intellectual individual that has a
penchant for alliteration. My humor is dry and witty. My
grandmother called me a mensch, my aunt calls me a gentleman, and
my mom calls me far too often with issues about her iPhone.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in office supply sales, pretty much living out The Office,
as I train people on technology. Applying to Ph.D. programs
nationwide. Consulting for a preservation society. Learning Dutch
for fun on Duolingo. I am pretty random, but that is how I roll.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to people, giving advice when asked, and telling stories.
I'm also good at pub trivia, Jeopardy, and Cash Cab. I am a font of

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) Any book over a hundred years old,
2.) Soccer - especially FCB,
3.) My dog, Olivia,
5.) Canary yellow legal pads and gel pens,
6.) My family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future and how to achieve the goals I've set for myself, along
with my role in making the world a better place.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working, reading, commenting on Reddit, or binge watching
Netflix - Like A Boss.
