My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Avid cyclist, whiskey drinker and concert go-er. Particular towards Dachshunds, travel, photography/the visual arts, dark comedies, history, home cooking, unconventional ideas, extroverts and insightful introverts.

I think of myself as an optimistic realist. I can accept fundamental realities but I'm committed to the idea that we can always be better, as individuals and as a society.

I grew up in Maryland, Austalia, and Indonesia. I spent my childhood summers in India and went to college in Boston. I've been in the DC area since 2009 and it's the longest I've ever lived in a single place.

I recently accepted an invitation to serve in the Peace Corps in Senegal, starting in the fall of 2015 (but I am yet to be fully confirmed). I guess this means I'm looking for short term dating or friendship. But I believe in building strong foundations with people, regardless of outcomes.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a car, 4 bicycles and I live alone. I mention this not because they are some kind of arbitrary mark of success, but if the question is "does this dude have his shit together" the answer, I like to think, is "on the surface, shouldn't we all?" Underneath the surface I am still trying to grow spiritually, professionally, artistically and intellectually.

I work in federal consulting for a small business. Past jobs included working in international development, at an arts and cultural nonprofit, as a photographer, and as a bouncer. I spend my non-work time for friends, taking pictures, long bike rides, cooking, good drink, volunteering, and working occasionally at a local bike shop/outdoor goods retailer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping the inner kid alive, sharing off-kilter humor, arguing about esoteric or unpopular bullshit, defending and/or attacking the establishment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love fiction but I read a lot of history, recently a lot on South Asia/Afghanistan. The first book to change my life was The Fountainhead. It took me 4 months to finish Infinite Jest and now I think DFW is totally the tip of the mountain. Fitzgerald is my favorite (fiction) writer and Bukowski is the only poet I really loved.

Movies: Sundance bait, documentaries, things that make you go "oh fuck, my god damned mind."

TV: Standard fare. True Detective, Girls, Shameless, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Broad City, Always Sunny and expired shows of a similar vein. I don't have cable TV.

Music: NPR (Serial, This American Life, The Moth, Radiolab, Snap Judgement, Bullseye, Fresh Air, All Things Considered, Metro Connection, All Songs Considered, Studio Q). And a lot of music. 80s hits, Madonna, Flying Lotus, The Weeknd, Blood Orange, Hall and Oates, Simon and Garfunkel, Sam Cooke, RAC. It goes on and on.

Food: Everything. I cook a lot of Indian food at home.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and family, a passport, a camera, a bicycle, a pair of proper headphones, and some kind of indulgent pleasure item like a dense book or the perfect canoli.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Current events. The ethics of stuff. Dog adoption. Gender and racism. Family and friends. Travel and life plans. Career goals. Cool things to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to spend my time with others, but lately I've been feeling a little over the bar scene. I'm sure it will come back once I stop feeling the need to be financially responsible.

I'd love to go to a gallery opening, out dancing, watch a weird movie, or to stay in and cook.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I like people who are strong, independent, intelligent and thoughtful towards others.


Meditating among liars, and retreating sternly into myself, I see
that there are really no liars or lies after all,
And that nothing fails its perfect return--And that what are called
lies are perfect returns,
And that each thing exactly represents itself, and what has preceded
And that the truth includes all, and is compact, just as much as
space is compact,
And that there is no flaw or vacuum in the amount of the truth--but
that all is truth without exception;
And henceforth I will go celebrate anything I see or am,
And sing and laugh, and deny nothing.
