I think the best way to describe myself is to say that I'm really curious about almost everything. I studied engineering as an undergrad and did that for a few years before trying my hand at neuroscience for a year and international relations for nearly four years. After all of that, I decided to go to business school to pick up a few new skills (just graduated from Yale in May 2013), and I've just started a new job in Boulder doing consulting work in conservation and international development. I swear they are all related, really, but those are all stories to be shared over a glass of beer or wine. The main take away is that I really care about pursuing my passions and leaving a positive impact both personally and professionally on the lives of those around me.
On the personal front, that curiosity thing caries over in spades. I love to go hiking and camping (which works out nicely with my move to Boulder), but I also like to mix it up with nights out at a theatrical performance, a book reading or a local pub -- though I definitely skew more toward the outdoorsy side. And, as for travel, I've become a bit of an addict over the last 7-8 years. After not getting on a plane until I was twenty, I've now been fortunate enough to spend nearly two of the last eight years wandering / backpacking outside of the country (broken up into various length chunks - 3 months in Europe, 3 months in South America, 10 months in Asia and Africa, and a bunch of smaller trips). Exploring the wider world has definitely become a part of my DNA, and it is something I know I will continue to do with great passion going forward.
As for what I'm looking for in a woman - I'd really love to find a partner in crime who has a curious streak like my own - someone who gets excited about some new discovery every day and who can't wait to share it with me. For me, it's the sharing of that passion and excitement for things that excite us - both big and small - that really makes life together meaningful and wonderful.
