My self-summary
Life's too short to not enjoy it, or to take yourself too seriously. I like people who feel the same.
I’m really good at
Operating at a high level with little sleep, crushing it at airport bars, having way too much fun when I'm not supposed to, being a gentleman (its a lost art), Sunday Fundays, solo traveling, making 90s rock/Hoodrat jams/Electropop playlists, throwing ping pong balls in cups of all sizes, watching French movies without subtitles, what else really matters??
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books/Authors: Amitav Ghosh (especially The Glass Palace, my all-time fave), Kahlil Gibran, Cutting for Stone, King Leopold's Ghost, Ralph Ellison, David Sedaris, Harry Potter, Everybody Poops, The Aeneid, The Four Noble Truths (Buddhism), spy novels (Le Carre, etc)

TV Shows: Luther, Homeland, any British series on Netflix, Workaholics, Damages, Californication, Modern Family, Downton Abbey, Sportscenter, Justified, Game of Thrones, The Wire, Rachel Zoe, Walking Dead, Mad Men, Top Gear (UK version), Dexter, Charlie Rose, Bored to Death, How to Make it in America
The six things I could never do without
Laughter
International Travel
Good food (Congolese/Mexican/Indian/Sushi are my jams, but I'll try anything at least once)
Sports (soccer is my first and true love, but have become addicted to tennis, as well. I play and watch both as often as I can. I support Lyon and Nadal btw)
Headphones
A vast library of historical fictions, autobiographies, Ayn Rand, and Harry Potter 1st Editions
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global health, the elimination of racial and gender disparities, DR Congo's return to greatness, sunglasses, how I can be a better man, tequila, sprint workouts, romcoms, all things Notre Dame, whether or not you can overdose from chipotle
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing hoodrat stuff with my friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book, but I'd have to say that I was a 4-time National Latin Exam gold medal winner in high school. Clearly I was a prom all-star . . .
You should message me if
You are an inherently happy, positive person, you are passionate about something, you enjoy being active, you're always down for a concert, you live in the district (I only go to VA for chic-fil-a and MD for sailing, crabcakes & Skins games), and you don't have a selfie of yourself in your car.
