I've lived here for two years, and have really enjoyed what Seattle
and the surrounding area has to offer. I'm pretty big on getting
outside to do things rain or shine, which makes it quite a bit
easier to cope with the not-so-sunny months.
I work in the strategy group for a significant non-profit, and am
excited to be at a job again where the alarm clock is a reason to
feel optimistic and excited again. Prior to that, I worked as a
corporate strategy consultant for a couple of years. 'Twas fun and
glamorous for a bit, but I definitely got tired of the week-in,
week-out travel pretty fast, occasional 6am flights, and enjoy
finally getting to enjoy where I live.
Prior to living here, I lived in Santa Monica for a year and a
half, Cambridge, MA for 9 years for school where I finished a Ph.D.
in engineering for the life sciences, and I grew up in Fort Worth,
TX. Seattle feels like home though - I click really well with the
area, and there's no better place for big mountains close to a
cosmopolitan city (Denver people, please don't start).
Outside of work, climbing of all flavors, road cycling, and
photography are my things. Mainly I just like to explore new places
and get out to remote areas to see the hard-to-get-to views and
share those experiences with people. That said, I still always
enjoy great conversation over food, movies, and all the other ways
to spend time with people around the city.
I'm interested in meeting someone to share some adventures with or
just go around Seattle with. However, I totally understand if ice
climbing sounds in no way appealing ;)
Shoot me an email if this sounds interesting!
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, helping develop strategy for a non-profit. Prior to that
was a strategy consultant, and prior to that did a Ph.D. in
engineering for the life sciences. Pretty varied path, though
fairly intentional - jumping around to new experiences
professionally keeps things interesting.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes, so I hear
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Curb Your Enthusiasm (if you like Curb, I guarantee that we'll
click), Parks and Rec, Pad Thai, Texas BBQ brisket, Scotch
The six things I could never do without
Good restaurants, mountains, close friends, interesting stuff to
stay occupied with, family, and a sixth thing I can't think of
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A new place to check out (mountain or urban), making sure I don't
wake up in 5 years wondering where the time went.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out for food and drinks with friends or getting stuff ready for a
You should message me if
You're looking for a nice dose of adventure with someone that isn't
going to pull crazy bs out of left field on you.
