My self-summary
I'm a Baltimore native with big ambitions, a level head, and a playful sense of humor. I'm fortunate enough to get to make money by writing down words, and I hope I can keep doing that for a long time to come. I've lived in several major cities, but Baltimore continues to grip my heart like no other place on earth.

I am ready to meet a nice guy, but I have realistic expectations when it comes to online dating. I don't have a type, I'm not demanding, and I think I'm a pretty good time. I value integrity, silliness, ambition, conversation, and a continuously-developing sense of aesthetics. Though I spend my days writing in front of a computer, in the evenings and on the weekends I'm as physically active as I can be: hiking, yoga, kayaking, running.

Thanks for visiting my profile!
