My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oh hey! I'm Perry, and I'm a Jersey boy at heart, but I've lived in DC for... almost nine years now, yikes. I graduated back in 2010 with a degree in international affairs. I'm finally putting it to good use, working for a big international non-profit. I've been doing that for a bit, and I'm volunteering as a TA for a German class, which I LOVE. I have a dog named Icarus, he is my handsome little sidekick.

I'm into:
- Learning languages: I've taken classes in eight different languages, and I'm making it nine this fall. My favorite word in another language is grondboontjiebottertoebroodjies. +50 points if you can pronounce that.
- Sports/staying active: I bike everywhere, run at least three times a week (I'm doing four half marathons this fall - two down, two to go), and play basketball when I can. I do have my few teams that I love to watch, but I'm not one of those guys that needs to watch EVERY GAME. Unless you want to. Then we can.
- Cooking: When I have the time, there's nothing I love more than putting together a good meal. I'm always so happy to feed people, it's the Italian in me. If you're into homemade gnocchi or meatballs, I've got you covered.
- Science & technology: I'm always fascinated by scientific innovation, so a lot of my media consumption is stuff on YouTube like VSauce and DNews.

I'm an ISFP, just like Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, Justin Timberlake... So there's that...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, working at an international non-profit, assisting with an academic exchange program. I'm learning a lot of new stuff, but I doubt I'll be in this job for more than a year or so. Gotta keep learning! I do love my organization though, everyone is intelligent, kind, and appreciative of my work (which is always nice).

Long term, I don't have that plan locked down yet. Just keeping my mind open, always looking for opportunities to either learn or teach. I got the education bug, that much I know. (Speaking of, grad school is in the works... just not sure what for yet).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Picking up new languages then mixing them up with the others I've learned.
- Crosswords and sudoku. I get into that "A Beautiful Mind" zone where the words/numbers start to zoom off the page, swirl around the room and then fall into place.
- Dodging city traffic on my bike. Or riding the red line with no hands (I want to learn to surf eventually, this has to be good practice)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall, my hair does a swooshy thing that I just can't do anything about anymore, and the Roman nose, I'm sure. And I'll joke about anything once I get comfortable with someone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Scar Tissue, John Dies at the End, anything by Cory Doctorow, American Book of the Dead, Ventus, Valhalla, The Unincorporated Man. Basically any post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller?

Movies: Young Frankenstein, Kill Bill, Sin City, The Boondock Saints, Inglourious Basterds, The Fifth Element, Mafia!, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I'm a huge fan of the absurd, if it doesn't show.

TV: Cosmos, Archer, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Game of Thrones, The Office, and a whole lotta Food Network.

Music: All time favorites are Red Hot Chili Peppers (and John Frusciante's solo stuff) Parliament/Funkadelic, Coheed & Cambria, and A Wilhelm Scream, and a ton of other stuff. My recent favorites are Thank You Scientist, Vitamin Sun, and Nothing More. I love rock, funk, prog, acoustic, hardcore, and metal (I won't judge if you won't).

For food... everything. I'll eat most anything once (and likely again). Love me some tacos though. I'm a mad scientist in the kitchen, I love to experiment when cooking! I'm a spice junkie, I've been known to down raw habañeros.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My family and friends.
2. My dog Icarus, aka Sticky Icky, aka Captain Blackwhisker, aka the Gringo Dingo.
3. Funky music.
4. My bike/running shoes.
5. Work/life balance.
6. Hot sauce. I'm sure my blood has its own Scoville rating.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where humanity is headed in our lifetime. There's so many beautiful, horrible, fun, terrifying, ridiculous things happening around the world. I'm always anxious to see what's next, in a good way and a bad way.

Why OKCupid won't let me add any more languages to my bio.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Now that I'm in training, you'll absolutely find me on a long run on Friday nights. If you creep around the Capitol, I'm sure you'll see me go by.

If I'm not running, Friday is for relaxing. I'll make a good meal, flip on a movie, whatever! Saturday would be more my going-out night. Love to find new places to hang out (pubs > clubs, any day). Always down for a bike ride, concert, ball game, adventure out of the city - you name it!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a pair of footie pajamas, and immensely enjoy wearing them from time to time. I got them for Christmas as a joke gift. They are no joke.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a kid-at-heart type of person. I get along really well with people who have a spark of curiosity and wonder about the world around them. Closed mindedness is not cool.

You speak another language in addition to English, or you find it attractive when a guy does. Alles klingt besser in einer anderen Sprache, nicht wahr?

You want to go to Union Market with me and just eat... like... all the things.

I'm looking to click with someone long term, definitely let me know if you're on the same page. I'm not a one-and-done type person.
