My self-summary
What to say, what to say...

I am curious, reasonably smart, usually polite, often direct (hopefully tactful), funny--in that Chandler from Friends kind of way. I enjoy cooking, sports (tennis, ultimate, biking), traveling (lived in the UK, traveled in Europe, a bit of the Middle East and Africa), art and music (especially going to see live bands/orchestras). I'm laid back, but have to work at it.

To those who are curious (and in Washington it's the burning question), I work for a federal law enforcement agency that has its own TV show (three, actually).

And I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch...also craft beer and wine.

I'm looking for a partner who wants to join me in some adventures, somebody who's curious, looks for new experiences, and wants to grow together. I'd like someone who is more optimistic than me, laid back, and loving.

Oh, and I don't know where OKC gets the "More Sloppy" bit--makes me look like a hoarder, or something.
