My self-summary
I’m a passionate person who loves what I do and taking on new challenges. It's almost an understatement to say I live for college football (much to the chagrin of my best girl friend). I also like drinking bourbon, my monthly poker game, endlessly listening to podcasts, 24-hour news channels, and late night catch-up sessions with my DVR. It's hard for me to admit defeat at anything. Cooking does not come naturally, but I'm never late.

Special Talents Include:
- Comfortable in both a sports jersey and a cocktail dress, and have been know to wear both in an evening;
- Creating realistic poses at world's finest wax museums;
- Cussing like a sailor but having the manners of Emily Post;
- Knitting and other hypnotic activities (but no hats for your friends unless you give me a bottle of good bourbon in exchange).
What I’m doing with my life
I've worked in the startup/entrepreneurship world for the past 10 years and am lucky to now be a startup/entrepreneur of my own.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at folding laundry. No, seriously.
The first things people usually notice about me
Back in the day, I was told I looked like Maggie Gyllenhaal or Jessica Biel circa 7th Heaven. These days I'm told it's my thick, glossy strands of hair, warm smile and expert conversation skills.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Podcasts: The Solid Verbal, Reply All, Mystery Show (don't ask me about it, it's a mystery!), Invisiblilia, TANIS, ShutdownFullcast.

Shows I'm currently obsessed with: Expanse, Garbage Time, Mysteries at the Museum, Doctor Who, The Flash, Jessica Jones, The Leftovers.
The six things I could never do without
Sooner football, good whiskey, wifi, coffee, beaches and again, college football.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the "charge" chant is used during basketball games is an unsolved mystery to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing probably what you're doing, which is dining out/drinking with my friends, going to a show, having a hot and heavy night with my DVR or gloriously catching up on lost sleep.
You should message me if
You are or ok with most of the following:

- You are someone who does NOT complain about their job every fucking second;

- You have a strong sense of curiosity and a desire to keep learning, which is more important to me than formal education;

- You are not a health nut, happily own a tv with cable and know how to make a good cocktail or two;

- You are ok with the fact I will ignore any plans during football season, including but not limited to: my best friend’s birthday (she’s accepted it), you and possibly your sister’s wedding;

- You moved to DC more than 6 months ago/Actually live in DC/ Don't plan to move from DC in the next 6 months;

- Spontaneous in the way of, "Free this weekend? I heard of this crazy roadside attraction 2 hours outside of town. Wanna go?"

- Most importantly, knows being a little bad makes for a more exciting life.
