Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am passionate about social justice and God. I consider myself a
follower of Jesus rather than ascribe to a particular denomination.
I think it is important to be committed to service, poverty, and
racial reconciliation and strive to make a difference in the lives
of others and in my community.
I like to joke around a lot and laugh. I enjoy running and playing
volleyball and I love to go camping. Dancing is fun but I am
certainly not one to frequent bars. I like spontaneity and embrace
simple living. I have yet to have a cross-cultural experience but
hope to someday. I am looking for hang out buddies, pen pals, etc.
I am trying to be patient for "the one" too. Substance is much more
important to me than physicality.
I'm pretty sure I want to be a parent someday. I'm not going to ask
you to have my babies on the first date so don't worry but at least
in this stage of my life, I would like to think that me being an
inspiring father will be my greatest legacy.

I currently work with adults with severe mental illness as a case
manager in an outpatient community mental health center. I also
serve as the coordinator of our integrated health clinic. I'm in
the middle of a Master's of Social Work (MSW) program and in the
fall I'll be juggling work, class and my field placement (therapy
with children 7-17). I'll likely become a therapist someday but I
am not entirely sure at this point.
Prior to this job, I served homeless youth ages 18-22 both in
Detroit and New Jersey for nearly 4 years. I am especially
passionate about this age group and homelessness.
I’m really good at

My smile and how it rarely leaves my face. :P People also often
notice how open I am and how I seek to better understand people
from all faiths, backgrounds, ethnicities, etc.
