My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Dude from Los Angeles gettin' my DC on. I'm a pretty recent transplant -- I've been chillin' in the Midwest for the last couple of years. I'd say I have three main aspirations that would fit well in this self-summary.

I aspire to continually learn and engage with life. My loves have always been development policy work and field research, but I have a plethora of other interests which range from volleyball to trance clubbing to video and film production to classic jazz. I love to be open to and explore and find beauty in new and unique experiences and that extends into my relationships, whether it's long term or short term or whatever.

I aspire to see as much of the planet as I can. So far I've visited most of Western Europe and have lived in the UK, Ethiopia, Uganda, Argentina, and Laos. Coming from LA, I'm very much a big-city kind of guy, so I especially love to visit the world's urban hubs. That being said, lately I've been getting more into backpacking and cycling abroad. Biking down the Portuguese coast, for example, is at the top of my list for future adventures :)

I aspire to be a true gentleman. And that doesn't just mean the way I treat women, but the way I treat everyone and myself. I view health and fitness as essential components to a wholesome life. I view personal reliance and resilience as necessary pieces of what a man should be. And ultimately I view being a gentleman as charitable equality.

Aspirations aside, though, I'm pretty much just a lovable goofball with a Dr Pepper love affair. A friend once described me thus:

"Danny, I would say that half of you is very wise and the other half is completely ridiculous. Actually, I take that back -- you're just ridiculous."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Grad school. I just finished up a masters in Illinois and now I'm working on an MPP at GW. I do mostly impact evaluation type stuff. I'm a sucker for public service provision policies and practices and all that goes into them. I'm also a sucker for glasses and ponytails.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Super Smash Bros. -- I'll kick your ass with Donkey Kong. Or Luigi. I'm versatile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle (p.s. If you haven't seen his Wikipedia picture, you need to), and, of course, my boy Robert Louis Stevenson. I'm also a huge classic noir fan (esp. Chandler) -- Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, The Long Goodbye, Farewell, My Lovely. You know, the good stuff.

My goal is to someday work my way through this entire list (I'm at a pitiful 21/100 right now):

On the lighter side I LOVE Wes Anderson films (Tenenbaums is my fave). Also Soderbergh, Coen Brothers, and anything Miyazaki.

On the darker side, I'm a huge Scorsese fan and have a love for dark visual styles like with Kubrick or Ridley Scott films or Frank Miller adaptations. I also enjoy dark comedies (esp. Guy Ritchie and Edgar Wright).

This changes by the day, but right now I'm listening to a lot of Above & Beyond (esp. Group Therapy), Cloudkicker, Scale the Summit, Glitch Mob, Maccabees, and Daft Punk.

And the classics, of course: Beatles, Eagles, Clapton, Elton, CSNY, Creedence, Fleetwood Mac and frequent, heavy doses of Kenny Burrell and my boy Bill Evans.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully trying a new restaurant or something with friends. Live music is definitely a plus (esp. jazz). I love to try new places. Mostly I just love food. Except for fish. Slimy bastards ...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If I've messaged you that means I'd love to go out sometime. I'm much more interesting and fun and charming (and good-looking ;) in person; I know that you are, too. My messages are usually simple and meant to start a short, fun conversation with that end in mind. Take five minutes and reply; you'll be glad you did.
