I try my best to live like the heroine of Cake’s “Short Skirt / Long Jacket.” I am curious about the world and everything in it, so there is nothing more attractive to me than a man who is intellectually playful (30-Rock-style screwball banter, anyone?) and would explore the whole world with me, whether by taking a spontaneous road trip, dominating trivia night, or raising the stakes with a bake-off (spoiler alert: you'll have a hard time topping my buttermilk pie).
I love innovative ideas, and when I’m not streaming the newest TED talk, I'm crashing a cool conference (message me for tips to go incognito). Other dorky tendencies include bringing my entrepreneurial friends to my office on the weekend to help them whiteboard their product launches, playing with iPhone apps, and loving board games of any kind.
I am ambitious and goal oriented, but for me people always come first. My relationships with my close friends are one of the most important aspects of my life. As for goals, I tend to set them for everything that’s important to me: fun, friends, career and spiritual fulfillment, for starters. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, setting blood donation records, and learning to fly a small engine prop plane are on my goals list for this lifetime. Stargazing in Death Valley, small acts of kindness and service, and a lengthy trip through Spain, Italy, and France are on the list for this year.
