I recently graduated from law school and moved up to DC to work for
the government. I am easy-going and up for almost anything. During
the week I am usually relaxing watching weird TV (Have you seen
Naked and Afraid? I promise it's not as weird as it sounds.) or
catching up on current events. I like to cook when I have the time,
and always enjoy a relaxing night with a glass (or two) of
I am unabashedly sarcastic and try not to put my foot in my mouth
too often. I am a huge Carolina Tar Heels fan and say "y'all" a
What I’m doing with my life
Working for the man and looking forward to the weekend!
I’m really good at
I enjoy almost all kinds of racket sports, ranging from Tennis to
Squash. I also really enjoy cooking and reading. Can you be good at
reading? Maybe that should be in another category.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall and I like to smile. Also, I have been told I am like Ted

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Books: I tend to read a lot of non-fiction. Occasionally I
will throw in something off the wall, like James Ellroy.
Newspapers: I LOVE the Economist (may be related to the UK spelling
of certain words) and the NY Times
Movies: Jiro Dreams of Sushi, James Bond movies (Daniel Craig good,
Pierce Brosnan no, Sean Connery yes, Roger Moore yes), Lock Stock
and 2 Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Die Hard series, and Kiss Kiss Bang
TV Shows: Arrested Development, Scrubs, Archer, the League, and my
guilty pleasure has to be House Hunters.
Music: Pretty wide variety. Fair share of Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B
but also Buddy Guy. Also random groups like Arctic Monkeys, Alex
Clare, and Passion Pit. Really depends on the situation.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, Kindle, Google maps, and my cast-iron pan. Everything else
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How dirty metro train handrails are and why there is never a
trashcan on the street when you need one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out with friends or making a nice meal with wine and
relaxing. It really depends how stressful the week was.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to read TONS of fantasy and sci-fi books when I was a kid. I
have read all the Harry Potter books and seen all the movies. They
You should message me if
you like self-effacing, sarcastic, tall guys. That's probably a
