Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I should start this by saying that my younger sister tells me that
Denzel looks like me. (If that doesn't elicit laughter, then maybe
your not my Sally and I'm not your Harry). I am a driven,
adventurous, and fun loving man, with an appreciation for nuance.
Got a passion for learning, discovery, and aspire to move/influence
the world in my own small way. Never lacking for confidence, I
throw myself into a challenge, and apply resourcefulness to bring
it to fruition. Self assured enough to laugh at myself. I am
looking to meet women that are independent , endowed with a sense
of humor, and are fierce (not too fierce).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Economist who pivoted from consulting to international development.
Working hard, pursuing adventure, and surrounding myself with good
people as well as feeding my passion for business/literature. My
unique background (growing up - seeing different cultures) allows
me to see things with a richer lens than most people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Coming up with creative ways to see the humor and novelty in a
situation. I guess I shouldn't neglect to mention that I am superb
at charting a course and following through. (Insert - that means
that I have that magical follow through formula.) I have a superb
touch for subtlety. (So that takes care of communication.) But, it
all boils down to this talent of separating what's important versus
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
So, I have surveyed a number of people, and it seems that "the
first thing that people notice about me is my presence and inviting
air." What does that mean? Either I am like the Great Wall of China
in the flesh or the more likely answer, people enjoy spending time
in my orbit. The survey also noted that "I have a probing and
piercing look" about me. That could go a million ways, but if you
ask me, I think if I were to step outside of myself I wound notice
my sense of humor, the laughter that surrounds me, and my playful
nature. I'm of the mind that that there are enough occasions which
call for being serious and buttoned up, but you gotta chill out

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Financial Times newspaper
Sunday political show
new ideas that force a shift in thinking
laughter - a well timed joke
(So, I went beyond the 6 item rule - shoot me)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why won't this guy in front of me turn already. I am a planner so,
I often ask questions of how I can make an impact, where are the
leverage points, what works, what doesn't. I love figuring out how
things work. (Its all feedback, baby!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies of course - Getting together with good friends - catching
up, jamming to some live music, listening to jazz, and of course
finding that undiscovered "it.."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I thought I shared lots of private details. My first childhood
dream was to be the next piano playing virtuoso, think Yo-Yo Ma, or
if you're just plain mean think Yonie/John Tesh.
