I'm the rare breed of DC resident that was actually born here,
though I grew up mostly in Nokesville, VA. Nokesville's essentially
a small town of cattle and dairy farms, where weekend parties occur
in hay fields. I like to think my combined country and city
upbringing allows me to relate to just about anyone, including
I work in the telecom industry as a lobbyist, which is an awesome
place to be; never a dull moment, that's for sure. If you want to
know more about my career, just ask.
My true passion is music. I play drums and sing (go ahead and make
your "drummers aren't musicians" jokes, it no longer bothers
me...). I'm in a band with friends I've known since elementary
school... follow us @howlinbends.
Warning: At the moment, music comes first in my life. Probably not
an ideal statement for attracting those interested in long term
dating, but I'm all about honesty these days. That said, nothing
gets the creative juices flowing like an interesting woman.
