My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am looking to meet a confident, smart, ambitious, and witty woman who is not afraid to take charge (both at work and in personal life)...

My friends would describe me as someone with boundless energy who is persistent in his professional goals, but is always looking to meet new people.

Strong-willed women - who have affection for empathetic and attentive men - are encouraged to apply. :)

I love to read, particularly about foreign policy and energy topics. I'm an avid reader of the New York Times, both Bloomberg BusinessWeek (Bloomberg bought in Dec. 2009) and the newly redesigned Newsweek - as of March 2014, Newsweek is back in print!

For sports, I enjoy biking and jogging, but would like to get more into canoeing or kayaking and hiking. I watch hockey - GO PENS!! - and also like to play a little tennis.

I am a man who isn't afraid to cry. Are you woman enough to handle that about me?

I am energetic, open-minded, and a conversationalist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I work in the international trade and development market space. One of my areas of interest is where U.S. and Chinese national interests collide, and how to increase American jobs through increased exports and investments both at home and abroad in emerging markets.

I've also worked on antidumping / countervailing duty cases, in competition policy, as well as renewable energy and the carbon markets, and also am a former journalist in the DC Press Corps.

I'm still exploring what is out there and what is for me in life and sure I will work in a number of areas - variety is the spice of life!

I also recently wrapped up my International Commerce and Policy masters program here in the DC area.

Plus, one of my favorite hobbies is bookselling, which I share my love of all things books each Sunday afternoon...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking with complete strangers?!

Prognosticating the world economy (I wish!!).

Reading-in-between the lines... provided there are lines. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My friends call me the DC Colbert...

The sheer level of energy in my conversations and in my animations during conversation - I'm very expressive with my hands and eyes!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything foreign policy, energy, or presidential - Brothers (David Talbot); Nixon and Mao (Margaret MacMillan); George Orwell's 1984; Charles Dickens' Hard Times; and any mystery novel by the grand master of horse racing Dick Francis, and his son Felix Francis! In particular, Francis' Syd Halley series... Not to mention the Bruno, Chief-of-Police series by Martin Walker. Also, the Four Agreements changed my life...

Movies: Clint Eastwood and James Bond. In particular, the Dirty Harry movies and Roger Moore / Daniel Craig as my favorite Bonds. Also, Eastwood's trio of westerns - High Plains Drifter, Pale Rider, and Unforgiven where Eastwood goes from the best revenge yarn known to mankind in Drifter to a preacher in name only for Rider and to a reformed gunman in Unforgiven.

Music: My two favorite types are 70s / 80s rock and pop (Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, U2, Billy Joel, etc.) and oldies (Tommy James, the Byrds, and, of course, the Beach Boys)

Food: A nice juicy steak, Arby's roast beef and cheddar melt sandwiches, a well-prepared chef salad, Asian noodle and seafood dishes. And yes, I ALWAYS keep a jar of Claussen pickles in the refrigerator!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Newspapers / Bloomberg Business Week / Newsweek
2. a woman in knee-high boots
3. my Sunday afternoon "bookselling hobby"
4. meeting ambitious women
5. an attractive woman in high heels
6. a policy wonk or political woman
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the future holds... for me personally, but also for the world economy.

Foreign policy issues and how they affect the everyday lives of people...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging out with friends at a bar or going to a movie, or at home nestled in with a good book or an issue of Business Week...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be superstitious...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a strong, assertive, ambitious, and engaging woman...

You enjoy high energy and passionate conversations to go along with above-average food tastes. :)
