My self-summary
Let me just describe how I enjoy life. I like to see challenging exhibits at art museums that change the way I think. I wander around the National Arboretum in the Asian Collection. I bring my camera everywhere. I like to go to good restaurants and try to reverse engineer the recipes at home. I love my bike ride to work everyday but I could never wear spandex shorts.
What I’m doing with my life
I started my 20s very punk rock and now I'm a federal worker. Didn't see that coming. But I am the rare federal worker who loves his job. My background is in the arts, education, and technology and I am fortunate to have found a job that combines all three.

I used to spend a lot of time with my 15 year old son but less as he gets older. I like to get away to NYC whenever I can to see exhibits. I'm looking for a road tripping partner.
I’m really good at
Organizing a social gathering and then disappearing when it gets too crowded, answering any question even if I have no idea what I'm talking about, cooking with garlic and olive oil...
The first things people usually notice about me
Friends tell me I have a welcoming smile and it's easy to make me laugh.

On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the Friday. I have a great group of work friends from around the city who get together often. I like seeing what's at the Silver Theater. I have tried every ramen shop in the city in search of the perfect bowl.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Oh no, isn't that what all those other questions are for?
You should message me if
Message me if you want to wander around museums together. I am a big fan of the National Gallery, Hirshhorn, Phillips Collection, Freer/Sackler and I would love a partner to go up to the Baltimore museums like AVAM. Let me know if you want to go see the lotus blossoms in the aquatic garden or to the arboretum in the fall. We could go out and explore some new restaurants together.
