Healthy living is a big part of my life. I am an avid marathoner and triathlete. I am registered for several races at any given time so feel free to ask what's coming up and share yours!

Executive at at a large global Management Consulting firm specializing in Finance, Risk and Technology, primarily on Analytics and strategy. I studied abroad one summer in England and another summer in Italy, which is the extent of my international travels. I think the US is amazing so pretty happy exploring my own back yard! I hope to find my way to Egypt, Australia, and China at some point in the next couple years! I'll settle for a cruise or two, exploring an exotic beach, or playing my hand in Vegas in the meantime.

Anything else, feel free to ask!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a Risk Manager in Manhattan. Finance, go figure. In the past I was a Credit Risk Analyst, Consultant, Broker/Principal, adjunct professor and a few other random things....

I have a BBA in Finance and Logistics, a MBA in Risk Management and a Masters in Finance. I plan to pursue a PhD down the road. I am a Level II Candidate, a PRM, PMP, Certified IT Architect and some other nerdy things.

When I am not conquering the world I race with the Full Throttle Triathlon team, go out with friends and colleagues or play ZogSports (softball, bowling, and soccer). I also like to go away on the weekends and spend time outdoors.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Running everything from 5k's to marathons
Math
triathlons
eating
cycling
swimming
intellectual conversations
being funny
bowling
kayaking
fishing
camping
hanging out in the city
being creative
trying something new
research
collecting things
helping others
networking
booking plane tickets and rescheduling within the 24hr grace period
did I mention eating?

Wishing I could speak other languages or play a few instruments... one of these days!

Asking my friends to help me edit my okcupid profile.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order....
Food & water
Technology (I am an Apple guy, I can't live without my MacBook Pro, iPhone, Apple TV, iPad and any other shiny things they come up with)
Family
Friends
My bikes
The outdoors
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Finance, economics, politics, how things work, how crazy most humans are.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Heading out of town for an adventure or staying local and hanging out with friends. I am not above staying in and relaxing on a Friday night like the old man I am.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are cool, athletic, fun, intelligent, not a drama queen or stage 5 clinger, and energetic. I don't message/reply if you do not have a profile, I don't want to have to chat with every woman on OKC to get basic details.

What I am looking for:

There is a saying in M&A (Mergers and Acquisitions): 2+2 does not always equal 4. In fact the most successful mergers are those in which the new business is greater than the sum of the parts. I just want to find someone I can grow and learn with while avoiding the subadditive nature of dating these days.

I work hard to stay in shape and balance my responsibilities and I would like to be with someone who does the same. An education is a must. I can appreciate a woman who works hard, has a job, and is independent. I need someone that understands that my education and work are important to me. Time is precious so I am only interested in dating someone near me.

I am generally attracted to motivated and driven women and sometimes that drive and motivation (undoubtedly a trait I would share) translates into a healthy level of competition in a relationship. Bring it on ;-)

What I am looking for in a few words:
Smart, sweet, ambitious, attractive, athletic, hard working, honest, caring, fun, silly, and happy.
