My self-summary
I am a Cleveland "boomeranger," coming back here after finishing up my Bachelor's in Miami, Florida (hence Clevecanes). I work for a local consulting firm and love my job!

I'm really into Cleveland. I love it here. I love the people, the architecture, the river and lake, and the idea that I can help shape this city's future in a way that is absolutely impossible outside the Rust Belt.
What I’m doing with my life
Working and volunteering!

I work for a corporate social responsibility consulting firm. Basically, I teach Fortune 500 companies how to be "better corporate citizens," with respect to the environment, social welfare and human rights, and corporate governance.

I'm also involved with young professional organizations in Cleveland and the alumni board of City Year Cleveland. I love volunteering and helping my community (legacy of Americorps).
I’m really good at
Knowing really random information about buildings in Cleveland. I once took a hitchhiker on a tour of downtown while taking him from Public Square to the highway. He said it was the most friendly and awesome thing he had seen on his cross-country tour.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ridiculously curly hair.

While studying in China my TA literally attacked me with a scissors to try and cut off a lock. I then got yelled at by the professor for getting out of my seat during class.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ilium, Olympos, Hitchhiker's Guide, Cod, Princes of Ireland, Song of Ice and Fire, Virtues of War, Atlas Shrugged

Movies: Garden State, Despicable Me (or anything Pixar, also throw in How to Train Your Dragon), Boondock Saints, Airplane, Gladiator, Inception, Finding Nemo, Robin Hood Men in Tights

Shows: Community, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, Modern Family, Newsroom, Psych, Parks & Rec

Music: I'm currently in love with Florence + The Machine. Also love M86, Mumford and Sons, and Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Also: Metallica, Guns n Roses, Eric Clapton, Phish, Foster the People, Nickel Creek, Phil Collins, Bob Marley, Beatles, etc.

Food: Chinese, Mexican, Thai, Ethiopian, Italian, anything but seafood more or less.
The six things I could never do without
-Family
-Friends
-Chapstick (people laugh at me for this but it's an integral part of my person)
-Tea
-Nature
-My wallet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next. How else I can best contribute to the city while furthering my personal life.

Also, the future of Cleveland.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully going to some new part of town, which as an "East-Sider" tends to always be on the West Side.

Let me know of any nice "hole in the wall" places!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The more I live in Cleveland, the more I want to live on the West Side.
You should message me if
you feel like talking. Or if you're interested in any of the same things as me. Or even if you aren't, introduce me to new stuff!

Also, I updated this with little to no sleep, so please message me with any typos or corrections you would have me make. Grammatical criticism is incredibly helpful.
