My self-summary
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. Have an article under peer review and starting a new career path.

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
Starting a new career in assisted living. Applying to Ph.D. programs nationwide. Learning Dutch for fun on Duolingo. I am pretty random, but that is how I roll.
I’m really good at
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 useless knowledge.
The first things people usually notice about me
My non-judgmental attitude, larger-than-life personality, or my eye lashes. Women be jelly 'bout my lashes.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
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
Either working, reading, commenting on Reddit, or binge watching Netflix - Like A Boss.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have no palate for wine, and I wish I did. :'(
