Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After finishing grad school at Georgetown, I found myself in the
odd position of actually having the time to explore interests and
cultivate hobbies. So, while I've dedicated time to lifting at the
gym and HIIT workouts, I try not to be too much of a gym rat and am
always on the lookout for anything interesting to fill up my week:
mixology classes, charity socials, an introduction to the Waltz,
networking events, and so on. I try to keep a good balance and be a
Jack of all Trades. As part of the working out process I've
actually gotten quite good at cooking healthy meals, a shock to my
family as much as it is to me. Still, I'm too much of a foodie to
give up everything in the name of fitness, I just try to moderate
it. In my spare time I volunteer with Partnership for Animal
Welfare (PAW) working primarily with rescued dogs.
I actually enjoy planning dates and have been told I'm really good
at them. If you're up for a challenge, send me any 5 facts about
you, and only using what you've sent, i.e. without looking at you
profile, I will send back a date plan. If you like it, we'll go, if
not, then no.
If you want to know more, just ask, I'm an open book on most
things. I promise that I'm a lot less serious in person.

Very mood dependent, but I always try to give everything at least
one chance. I don't follow bands as much as I enjoy songs.
Everything except beef. And I do mean everything. I will try pretty
much anything at least once.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Literally. I sometimes have trouble sleeping at night
because I can't turn off my brain.
More specifically: my next trip, work out routines, what should I
make for my next meal, what other things does my kitchen need, any
upcoming events, recent journal articles or studies I've read, and
how to win board games against my friends... we're all quite
competitive and very good at them.

I love; life is too short to not enjoy yourself, whatever that may
mean at the time. I usually reserve Sundays for a recharge.
