I recently started a job 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. That said, I still have a mountain of Starwood points, and loyalty programs do have their perks...
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 routine ways to spend time with people.
I'm interested in meeting someone to share some adventures with or just go around Seattle with - most of it's still pretty new to me. However, I totally understand if ice climbing sounds in no way appealing ;)
Shoot me an email if this sounds interesting!
