Hi! I'm a 2011 transplant from the Northeast (NYC/Boston) and never
pictured myself living in the Midwest but have been pleasantly
surprised with all that Cincinnati has to offer. I moved here after
doing a complete 180 in my career and am now an
engineer-turned-marketeer. I have a very positive outlook on life
and a happy disposition - you will quite often see me smiling and
laughing with my friends. There's a lot I want to do and see, and
I'm looking for someone who shares my excitement of life and is
able to feed off of my energy (and vice versa!).
A few of my favorite things: watching baseball, taking road trips,
traveling the world, personal training, hanging with my amazing
friends, exploring the Queen City (it really is a hidden gem),
baking some rad desserts.
More specifically, I'm looking for someone who's intellectually
curious who can challenge and inspire through conversation. He
needs to be ambitious, and can relate to my educational and
professional achievements. I approach everything in life with
enthusiasm and want someone who shares my energy (and mine from
his). The person I am looking for is family-oriented, wants to
experience life - not just dates - together, and makes me laugh and
feel special. I do have a strong personality (blame it on the
Northeast?), which I assume stems from my ambition, but I am
looking for someone who won't be intimidated by a woman who is
strong and independent.
What I’m doing with my life
Following my passions - I used to be an engineer but wanted a more
front-end, strategic, customer-focused role, so I'm now working in
a strategic marketing leadership role. Also trying to spend as much
time as I can with my local friends - I always have more fun with
people than without people!
And then there's the travel bug. I most recently came back from a
New Zealand vacation in October, and have also been to a ton of
other international and domestic locations. On the bucket list:
Antarctica for international, and every MLB ballpark for domestic.
I’m really good at
I like to think I'm good at the positive things - being happy,
laughing, cheering people up, etc., all that good stuff!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm approachable and easygoing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Glee, How I Met Your Mother, The
Office, American Idol (yup). Wish I could say that I read more, but
I do enjoy my college alumni magazines :) Actually I just finished
Mindy Kaling's book which was quite funny. For music - as much as
I'd like to say I have an eclectic variety, I enjoy pop and
singer-songwriter genres the most ... Billy Joel is my all-time
favorite. And food, my favorites are American and Italian, more
specifically cheese, sweet wine, chicken parmesan, and bread!
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, music, the Yankees, cheese, happiness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
(Sounds cheesy but) being grateful for the opportunities I've been
able to experience, my family, my future - both personally and
professionally, what to do this coming weekend, where I want to
travel next, and how I turn songs that I like into color guard
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends in some fashion - dinner, vegging out,
bar, movies, shows, etc...
Though sometimes I just need the night for me. I keep busy during
the weeknights so a Friday night in doesn't hurt.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a fear of beady-eyed cats at night, and I can't watch ET
because that little guy freaks me out!
You should message me if
you think you could be that guy I'm describing, and want to get to
know me! Please be sweet, be smart, be curious, and know what
you're looking for as well.
