My self-summary
What to say... I'm a Jersey boy at heart, but I've lived in DC for more than 7 years now. I graduated back in 2010 with a degree in international development. Now I work for a non-profit (shocking) that provides language classes to adults. I love learning new languages, I'm taking Afrikaans now (language #7... I have an addiction). I play guitar and practice photography, I'm always trying to get better at both. My preferred artistic medium is food though, I love cooking and I think I'm getting pretty good at it. I love biking and I'm trying to love running.

If I had my way I'd either be at the beach, exploring the world, or inventing new recipes with fancy ingredients I totally wish I could afford (looking at you, saffron). While I'm here living the glorious non-profit lifestyle though, I still have a ton of DC left to explore. I'm looking for a partner in crime to join me.

In terms of my personality, humor is a huge part of my life. It's so much better to joke around than to be serious about most things (the things that truly matter, anyway). I love my family, they mean the world to me. I'm stubborn as all hell, but melty on the inside... kind of like a Riesen. Does anyone even eat those anymore?
What I’m doing with my life
I've settled quite nicely into the non-profit sector, and I think I'll be here for a while. My focus is in education, I want to help people learn any way I can. I've recently made the leap from working with kids to program management. It's different, but I like it so far. This is all in addition to staying happy and healthy.

Becoming a Lebenskünstler.
I’m really good at
- Picking up new languages, especially pronunciation.
- Utterly destroying crosswords, sudoku, and sporcle quizzes.
- Impersonations of extremely random celebrities.
- Making dirty gin martinis, when the situation calls for it.
- Obscure one-liners, quotes, references. I'm almost too good at these.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really couldn't tell you, most people don't usually go "Hi, I'm _____. You have a neat face" or something like that.

I'm tall, my hair does a swooshy thing, and I smile with my eyes when it really means something. And my beard is awesome.
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 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. I can also be convinced to 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.

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 or ball game.
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 20–27
  • 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. I'll also be honest and say that I'm hoping to click with someone long term, definitely let me know if you're on the same page.

You speak another language in addition to English, or you find it attractive when a guy does. Nicht wahr?

Also, if you think a cooking class, bike ride (day or night), Jazz in the Garden, or a sports game are good ideas for a date!
