My self-summary
I'm a Jersey boy at heart, but I've lived in DC for about 8 years now. I graduated back in 2010 with a degree in international development. Now I work for (slash almost basically run) a cool non-profit that provides foreign language classes to adults.

I'm into:
- Learning languages: I get to take courses for free through work (I'm on language number seven!). I've been told I have a knack for pronunciation by several native speakers.
- Sports/staying active: I bike everywhere, run when I can (preferably in the rain), and play basketball most weekends. I also have some fierce Big 4 loyalties.
- Cooking: When I have the time, there's nothing I love more than putting together a good meal and dancing around the kitchen. (Spoiler alert: my food turns out better than my dancing)
- Science, tech, gaming: The nerdy stuff. If you're into it too, awesome. If not, no big deal! I do care about being well-rounded.
What I’m doing with my life
Becoming a Lebenskünstler.

Seriously though, just keeping my eyes open and not limiting myself right now. Been doing the non-profit thing for a few years, and I do love helping people! I'll probably go back to working with kids soon, it's what I've been doing most of my life and it's what I care the most about.
I’m really good at
- Picking up new languages, especially pronunciation.
- Utterly destroying crosswords, sudoku, and sporcle quizzes.
- Obscure one-liners, quotes, references, impersonations. I'm almost too good at these.
- 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
If I'm talking to someone in a different language, it's probably my pronunciation.

I'm tall, my hair does a swooshy thing, and the Roman nose, I'm sure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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: Anything directed by Quentin Tarantino or Mel Brooks. If I'm going to commit 90+ minutes to something, it's going to be campy and ridiculous. I love Young Frankenstein, Kill Bill, Sin City, and Jane Austen's Mafia!

TV: I'm really a blank canvas here, open to watching whatever! My go-to will always be Mystery Science Theater 3000 though. If you're an MST3K fan, we'll get along just fine. Also digging the new Cosmos and Doctor Who. If we're required to have something in common here, I watch Game of Thrones.

Music: Favorites include Red Hot Chili Peppers (and John Frusciante's solo stuff) Parliament/Funkadelic, Coheed & Cambria, and A Wilhelm Scream. Love rock, funk, 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!
The six things I could never do without
1. My family and friends.
2. Teaching/Learning.
3. Funky music.
4. My bike, I ride all over the city.
5. My chef's knife and spice rack.
6. Hot sauce. I think my blood may have its own Scoville rating.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future. I want to go places in the non-profit world, but it's hard to narrow down the cause one is 'most' dedicated to. If I can help people learn, eat, or live, then I can't go wrong. Call me passionate, but not picky.

Why OKCupid won't let me add any more languages to my bio.
On a typical Friday night I am
With my current job, Friday has become my night to relax. I'll make a good meal, grab a beer, flip on a ball game, 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 used to do this:

...and I got good. I'm a Shodan (first degree black belt). This is only private because when you tell someone you're a swordsman, you get mixed reactions.
I’m looking for
  • Straight girls only
  • Ages 21–28
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
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?

I'm looking to click with someone long term, definitely let me know if you're on the same page. I'm not wired for hook ups.
