I like laughing and making people laugh. My family thinks I'm
pretty funny, but I think they only like me as a friend. I want to
start meeting new people, (friends, dating) and this looks like a
good place to try. I finished undergrad in 2010, spent a year
trying to find myself while backpacking around my parents'
basement, and I've been working/living in Center City, Philadelphia
I like sports, go Eagles and Phillies, trying as many beers and
burgers as I can in the city, crossword puzzles, origami, and
trying to write humorous things in my spare time.
In a nutshell: I'm hyper-laid back but I know when to take things
seriously, and I don't worry about things out of my control.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in "finance", please don't ask me what it means because I
don't know either. I'm on a team that builds and maintains
financial models for universities across the country. It's
interesting and can be challenging, but I don't think it's what
I'll be doing forever.
Last summer I took a solo trip to Holland, Belgium, Germany, and
Iceland. It was just about the best thing I've ever done, and I
have every intention to make it a regular thing. I managed to come
back alive from Brazil this past summer, and I'm planning a major
European trip (on the order of a couple years) next summer.
I’m really good at
I have a knack for learning new languages. I speak ok Italian,
still remember a bit of Spanish from high school, and am currently
teaching myself German and Portuguese.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be fairly extroverted, and I generally don't care what
strangers think of me. So meeting someone for the first time I
think I come across as a bit of a nervous goofball, but after
getting to know me they realize I'm actually a confident goofball.

The six things I could never do without
An internet connection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I actually want to do as a career. I love working with my
hands, but not in an excel sort of way. Origami has been a real
hobby of mine since I was a kid, and I always enjoy trying to pick
up a new craft. I hope in a few years I'll say that my job is
building "somethings", because I know I'll be happy doing it. I'm
currently trying to figure out what that something is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out somewhere, barhopping with coworkers or with other
friends. On the other hand, I never regret the occasional night in
with just a beer and a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
3 inches. Yeah, laugh it up. It's true, I once missed a 3-inch
You should message me if
You're often a goofball like me, you love to laugh, and you know
you don't need a drink to have fun but it certainly doesn't hurt.
