My self-summary
I love traveling and going on adventures in foreign lands. I did Peace Corps in Ukraine for two years, finished a Master's Degree in human rights and now I've moved back to the DC are after living near Tbilisi, Georgia for a few months.

I'm really excited to be back in the city and looking forward to exploring, going to festivals, plays, museums, and everything else I didn't do enough of while I was in college here.

This quote pretty much sums it all up for me:

"When you first arrive in a new city nothing makes sense. Everything is unknown, virgin. After you’ve lived here, walked these streets you’ll know them inside out, you’ll know these people. Once you’ve lived here crossed this street 10, 20, 1000 times, It’ll belong to you because you’ve lived there. That was about to happen to me but I didn’t know it yet." - L'auberge espagnole

In addition to traveling, I'm a total bookworm and film buff. I also love cooking - especially choosing something that maybe you wouldn't normally make at home (i.e. sushi, ramen, khinkali) and giving it a go.

I love learning new languages and exploring cities. I love to find out what free/cheap events are going on like concerts or shows and do something new every weekend.

I guess I would say that I'm looking for a down to earth guy who shares some of the same interests as me and wants to do something fun in the city. I have ambitious career goals and I hope you have the same. Intelligence is probably one of the most important things to me along with kindness. Ambition without pretentiousness is key. Biggest turn-off is being an asshole and/or classist, racist or close-minded.
What I’m doing with my life
Working near DC on gender equality issues.
I’m really good at
Reading, listening, typing really fast, learning languages, planning vacations and making sushi

The six things I could never do without
1. Netflix
2. Books
3. Movies
4. Cellphone
5. Passport
6. Family & Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where can I visit next? Why are their no Georgian restaurants in DC? When will a really good 3D movie be released?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably out at a bar with some friends. I'm much prefer bars to clubs. If I'm going out on a Friday night, I'll probably prefer to do something more low-key on a Saturday - cooking something fancy and some Netflix or seeing if there is something to do around town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love reading fantasy books. I guess I'm a bit of a nerd!
