Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, I'm kind of a wandering nomad. I've grown up in DC, worked in
India, started a career in Seattle, became a subject matter expert
in Boston; and now I'm ready to see what Austin brings to me and I
to her (it?).
Despite these Northern cities and their cultures, I consider my
dating style to be Southern. I like the concept of friends first.
It allows us to both share our humanity without the pressures and
pretenses that so often accompany the Northern game =/
So, what might that look like? Ice skating (obviously easier in a
Northern climate), board games, long walks in a park, coffee,
dinner, volunteering, making origami stuff, (we're too old for
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm studying Chinese at the moment....so, I'm constantly wondering
if I know the word for something...I almost never do, as it turns
out. Oh well, 600 note cards down.....300,000 words to go,
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping my promises and speaking the truth. Even when it hurts me
to keep my promises, I do; and even when it would benefit me to
lie, I can't seem to force myself to do it. (Don't get me wrong...I
can be wrong and I can change my mind, but those don't stem from an
intent to deceive.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would hope that it's my passion; but I think it's my eyes

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I have been in the upper income brackets and the recipient of
assistance (foodbank food to be specific). So, while I like things;
I mostly buy things as a way to share with the people in my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If the love of God were predicated by goodness, when would any of
us be loved? I'm grateful that not only is the love of God
predicated only by His gracious choice but that His expectation of
us is to give freely to others what we have received without merit
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Definitely a big fan of games: card, board and video. Going to the
movies or going to out eat are also up there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Secretly (or not so secretly...now), I love those conversations
where a recruiter feels like he's done a great job of pitching a
contract to you...only for him to find out he's offered less than
half of what I'm making now.
