Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Northern Pennsylvania, went to school in Pittsburgh,
and moved to the DC area soon after for a position with a
three-letter government agency. Earlier this year I jumped to a big
pharmaceutical company, which was kind of terrifying but has been
really great so far.
I love to be active, and I'm up for a lot of different things to
make sure I keep that up. Soccer is my favorite and I try to play
at least once a week through the summer, but I'm thrilled if I can
do tennis, ultimate frisbee, volleyball, or almost anything. I've
even been known to dominate the horseshoe pit at a family reunion
or two. That hasn't affected my impressive humility, though. You
don't have to treat me like a celebrity horseshoe athlete. (Do
Most importantly, I sometimes put periods after parentheses or
quotation marks, which is not in keeping with Universal American
standards. That's my biggest deal-breaker, so I want to get it out
in the open right off the bat.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
If you ask my mom, I am one of the world's foremost cancer
researchers and will be responsible for a cure any day now. If you
ask me, I work for a drug company where I have a narrow role in
developing oncology drugs and getting them approved. It's a really
cool job and I think I'm pretty lucky to have it.
Outside of work, I'm doing my best to be a grown-up. I love to try
new things and see new places, and I'd definitely like to do more
of both. I also try to spend as much time as I can with friends and
family, because they're important to me. Which I know is a really
controversial position to take on a dating website.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Beyond my baby blue eyes and boyish good looks? Probably that I
don't take myself terribly seriously.

I love food. I'll try anything once, and I'd prefer to try most
things twice. When I visit somewhere new, I've got to try the local
food. That said, I grew up in a small town, so I've still got a lot
of the world left to eat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
New challenges. I get restless if I'm not working toward something.
Sometimes big things - I got my pharmacy degree, taught myself how
to cook, and learned (and subsequently forgot) conversational
German. Sometimes small things - I spent an afternoon learning how
to fold a fitted sheet (still terrible at it) and once set a pretty
sweet high score in Turtles in Time. Currently I'm training for my
first half-marathon in October, so please let me know if you have
any suggestions for making running less terrible.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging out with friends and having fun, or saving time to
relax in front of the fireplace - or rather the hole in my living
room wall, now that it's warmer outside. I always love to try
something new. A new restaurant, a new game, a new activity. But
once in a while, I'm not opposed to just hanging out on the couch.
Just the same couch, though. That's not new every weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was six, I said that I want to be the President one day when
I grow up. I don't think I've chalked that up as a loss quite yet.
