My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
• Taking a break from politics (used to work as a comms officer) to teach in DC public schools for one year.

• I'm kinda obsessed with female driven period pieces.

• I read vivaciously and I'm working on getting more into non fiction. Currently reading Brooklyn (Colm Toibin) & The Devil In The White City (Erik Larson)

• I prefer to walk to the next, rather than get on the closest one.

• I've traveled to every contiguous state (This includes driving through) & been to 12+ countries

• Hypothetical "What-ifs" or "would-you-rathers" are my favorite way to get to know someone.

• I can drive stick shift (and did for 5 years until getting my current automatic).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in DC public schools teaching literacy! In my past life I did communications and thinking about getting back in it after taking this (short--11 month) break. I also work as a freelance blogger for a website and help run two social justice conferences.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing the "who starred in that..." Game..
The best car dancing you've ever seen.
Creative and non creative writing.
Timing my metro entering so the train is right there.
Solving geopolitical issues with comedy (Hello, UN? I'm open for hiring).
Planning soirees and jamborees

And most importantly? Making people laugh and feel good about themselves.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I pretty much have a "Random fact" related to anything or can relate a song lyric to any sentence (Think the Riff-off in Pitch Perfect 1 & 2). It's a gift, and a curse, but I take it with honor.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Freshmen year halloween I dressed up as a play boy bunny. A tail, ears, sleeveless white shirt...and broke my foot falling down the steps.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Send me a stupid "Would you rather?", I love that shit.

You like nerdy things, cultured things, stupid things,and would love someone to expand on those with. Museums, concerts, bar crawls, spoken word or just a dinner buddy. I'm all about making memories. Where that goes? That's half the fun, but first, you have to message.

Your move, Mr. President.
