Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Do you ever think Jerry Seinfeld is the wisest man to ever live?
"Meeting is hard... This is what single people are thinking about
the minute they wake up in the morning. And yet we’re surrounded by
people, they’re right next to us, on the bus, on the street! But we
can’t meet them."
I'm a native New Englander (Connecticut and Rhode Island) who's
been in DC for 5 (going on 6) years. After a year of AmeriCorps, I
worked for a domestic non-profit for five years where I traveled
around the country building partnerships with corporations. I love
to run (I always like to have my next half marathon in my sights!)
and to stay active, though my absolute favorite thing in the world
is a night at the Improv with a cold beer in hand - I'm a big
comedy buff, and generally just love a ridiculous/story-making
time. Maybe the easiest way to "get me" is that I am an Irish girl
through and through. I like to be out-witted at the same time I try
to out-wit you, I can hold my own with some old fashioned banter, I
like a good pint and a long story, and when my family gets
together, only 51% of us are going to remember it.
I'm genuinely interested in getting to know someone who would
consider himself a "good guy" - fun to hang out with, interesting
to talk to, searching for more in life, and interested in finding
someone who can help them build something together.
Oh, and most people call me by my last name (a clue to my
username), and I wear cowboy boots more often than not.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life took a turn for the interesting when I decided to become
the Executive Director of a non-profit in Tanzania (I'm based in
DC). It was a wild turn, even for me, but one that has brought my
life to a level of growth I couldn't have anticipated if I tried.
Think Peace Corps 2.0, but with a different approach. I love every
minute of it.
And the lay-overs in different European cities on my return flights
aren't a bad perk of the job!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told my laugh and my smile - I tend to do those a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love a good book and a good movie, but lately, it's been all
about the TV shows. I'm a big fan of Modern Family, How I Met Your
Mother, Always Sunny, 30 Rock, LOST, and you can name me a scene in
the West Wing and I can (almost always) give you the episode it's
from. But, lately, I'm all about Friday Night Lights. I went
through the whole series recently, and I'm still emotionally
grieving the end of that show! So amazing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My family and friends
2. Stand-up comedy
3. Live music (I'm not myself if I don't hear "shout" performed
live at least every other month)
4. Providence College
5. New England in the fall
6. Good cocktails
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Equal parts the causes/effects of poverty and inequality in society
and how often my life resembles Liz Lemon's. These are (usually)
not in the same thought.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends in DC or boarding a plane for a weekend
visiting friends and exploring the world. My friend and I made it
our new years resolution last year to go to Bottom Line every
Friday for their dollar Miller Lite night. Quite frankly, it was
fiscally irresponsible to NOT go there every Friday night. A year
later, it's still a favorite in the rotation.
