My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
For the purpose of being upfront, I'm looking to meet people who share similar interests but also have the confidence to express differences and what's uniquely part of who they are. Also, I'm looking for friendships to start while remaining open to the possibility that one may turn into a romantic relationship. If that's unclear please feel free to ask any questions.

Okay, like everyone else, I'm too complex to summarize in a couple paragraphs so be prepared for the generalizations.

Between being a more expressive individual, once I open up to someone, and putting a lot of value on honest personal conversations I'm not the normal guy by most standards. I believe in trying to walk the fine line between maintaining self-confidence and humility. My consistent life goals are to learn, laugh, and love all while trying to leave the world a better place for everyone.

With that in mind, some words and phrases I would use to describe myself, or what I try to be, include: INFJ, open-minded, inquisitive, playful, creative, loyal, avid reader, outdoorsy, socialist, non-arrogant intellectual, skeptical, organized, musical, 49ers/Warriors fan, and overall a strange and intricate variety of paradoxes.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Pursuing my passion for education!

I moved back to the Bay Area, from Chicago, after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in the Social Sciences.

Currently, I'm volunteering as a literacy tutor and working part-time as a development assistant for a San Francisco non-profit that funds programs for literacy, math and science, and college/career readiness in low-income districts. I've loved the purpose of the work, the people involved, and will definitely be pursuing further work in the non-profit world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Active listening, over-thinking by most standards (wait, should I admit that?), getting through my to do lists, reading subtexts, cuddling, and getting too much enjoyment out of bad puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know, nobody's ever told me what they notice. I'll have to get back to you on that one.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Music
2. Coffee
3. A sense of humor
4. Animal friends
5. Learning something new
6. Curiousity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ch-ch-changes.

No really, I think about all of life's unexpected outcomes and what they mean for everyone involved.

The little dreams that keep me motivated (traveling to Italy, going on a road trip along the coast, kayaking, adopting a dog, etc)

How to most effectively organize and communicate information to other people for grant requests and tutoring.

Why my love for dogs continues to grow as my faith in humanity slowly diminishes.

And you know weird analogies and puns, pop culture, gender, psychology, current events, love, education, economics, religion, literature, history, physics, music, language, and ultimately life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, going to an art walk, seeing live music, or just staying in to read or watch something I haven't seen before.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In order to give some insight into the kind of personalities I find attractive I'll admit that my biggest "celebrity crush" is Amy Poehler.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Something sparked your interest, you enjoy indulging in artsy activities, you have a clever/interesting sense of humor, you also prefer to be friends before being romantically involved with someone. But above all, you have a good heart (empathy/compassion for others) and love for yourself.
