Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

At my wedding, I want an acoustic version of Get Low playing. Think about that for a second.

I'm best described as a sarcastic, comic and traditional book loving humanist, who doesn't take himself too seriously (except on every 2nd Sunday), obsessed with female driven period pieces, sarcasm, and Oxford commas. When my super suit is in the dry cleaners I work as a communications fellow at a think tank. I have to sleep away from a door, it's a strange requirement and while most people fear snakes, spiders, etc I fear organ theft. Team Pepsi all the way. I'm getting into biking and softball again, and always up for wandering a city, taking a drive until we get lost--and other random, spontaneous Artful Dodger escapades n the world, or in the depths of Netflix. My blood is probably 10 percent fruit flavored tea and I'm okay with that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a think tank as a communications fellow, which means spending 8 hours watching press releases, writing tweets and facebook posts. And reading Washington Post, NYT, Salon and yes, Buzzfeed. I also work as a freelance blogger for a website and help run two social justice conferences.

Dipping my feet more actively in politics, and working on running a clean water campaign in August. I also write, as any self respecting 20 something does, and have a few novels out with agents right now for review--i'm sure i'll update this if it turns into anything amazing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing the "who starred in that..." Game.
Making even a statue laugh.
The best car dancing you've ever seen.
Creative and non creative writing.
Keeping in touch with people.
Being empathetic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you need an addition to your group, but want a non threatening in height black guy. I'm your guy. Cuz, you know, I'm kinda short....

...and then I open my mouth and well, as Aristotle says, "Wit is educated insolence."

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to the movies (Either out or a movie night with friends), coupled with a wine filled dance party with friends that ends with great memories (maybe being remembered at a delayed rate).
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.
