Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm unapologetically enthusiastic and able to add hyperbole to any
sentence. I'm a little bit of a workaholic (see below). The
Olympics are my favorite time of year. I keep my apartment stocked
with Moscow Mule ingredients (you can get ginger beer on
I like trying out the best of DC, traveling whenever possible (just
for back from 2 weeks in Thailand), spinning & yoga, and would
rather be at the beach than just about anywhere else. I bought a
bike but truth be told I'm a little scared to ride it in the
I grew up in New York (go Mets!!), went south to undergrad in New
Orleans (yes, was there for Katrina), and much to my surprise I've
been in DC for almost 6 years. I think I might like it here?
I'm looking for someone who's a good person -- not too tough I'd
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a small digital marketing firm working with non-profits,
political orgs, etc. -- trying to find a way to make my little
corner of the world a little better, a little brighter.
I get lead a lot of brainstorming sessions, come up with cool
ideas, write things -- and they pay me. Not bad.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Puns and parentheticals. Wii dancing. Watching tennis (and
sometimes playing). Interrupting you (I'm working on it). Marathon
Netflix viewing. Ice breakers.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone once told me I have eyes like a cat. You can do with that
what you want. Also, my Kelly Kapowski-like hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book: Lots of fiction and anything about World War II (weird?).
Some favorites include: Dave Eggers, Jennifer Egan, and I am proud
to controversially state my love of Franzen's Freedom -- it was
excellent. Also, Harry Potter. Also, the Art of Fielding -- go read
Movies: Apollo 13 (seriously, it's a classic), Dead Poet's Society,
Miracle, Home Alone, period movies with Kira Knightly, Indiana
TV: Friday Night Lights (Texas forever), The West Wing, The Wire,
Parks & Rec, Mad Men, Happy Endings, Arrested Development, The
Wonder Years, and so many more
Music: I once met Paul McCartney so I am forever first a Beatles
fan. Elton John knows my heart. Hall & Oates for karaoke. I'm
certain that Jay-Z and I would be great friends (you can ask me
more about this theory but that pretty much is the whole thing).
Not ashamed to say that Guster is probably my all time favorite
group. Have been doing a lot of First Aid Kit and Haim.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Olympics (don't make me pick)
Coach Eric Taylor
Pictures of Joe Biden eating ice cream
Big windows that open
And throwing in socks as a 7th
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people could possibly have an issue with Oxford commas. And
life on other planets. And what I'd haunt if I was a ghost.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
enthusiastically enjoying whatever it is I am doing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think 99% of what Aaron Sorkin writes is perfect.
