My self-summary
Not really a true St. Louisian. I came back to the area about three years ago and find myself falling for the city more and more everyday. I've lived in small cities and metropolitan hubs, but St. Louis seems to be my proverbial "just right."

Things about me which didn't fit anywhere else:
People watching is one of my all time favorite activities. I like to make up elaborate back stories for the people I come across. I love the stories behind tattoos and wish I had more of my own. I have a weird compulsion to watch Jurassic Park each time it plays on tv. While I'm not by any means a hardcore nature person, being out in a park on a sunny day with my dog will make me ridiculously happy. Trying to be more outdoorsy without embarrassing myself or you know, dying of exposure. Huge Cardinals fan and I have some pretty serious college football allegiances. I have legit career and personal goals, but also want to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie and the city's best mac and cheese. Life is about balance right?
What I’m doing with my life
Working in development and fundraising for an affordable housing non-profit. Genuinely love my job and the social issues we work on.
I’m really good at
Organizing events, people, places, things, odds and ends....

Yelling at the St. Louis Cardinal's bullpen.

Hosting dinner parties.
The first things people usually notice about me
Curly hair. Genetics. Go figure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm an avid reader. It's a constant battle at the library to get my hands on the most recent NPR featured book.

My taste in music varies but I like to stay educated across genres and time periods. I would leave modern country music by the side of the road and drive away if I could. Poetic right?

Tv: I'm one of those people who becomes overly attached to tv shows, however rarely watches anything when it is on live tv. My interest comes in waves and binges.

Food: I enjoy all things. No really. Let's eat all the things. Upscale to dives. Themed dinner parties for many or an elaborate meal for two for no reason. Let's spend a Sunday morning embarking on a citywide donut crawl or try to replicate a recipe with ingredients we don't know how to prepare.

Movies: I always feel like I should be more into this answer. I like movies. Let's watch movies!
The six things I could never do without
Family and Friends
My dog Hubble
Baseball
Ethnically inspired food
Reading materials
Water? That feels like such a smartass answer...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How access to affordable housing would assist in solving massive amounts of other social issues.

How to replicate something I have really enjoyed eating.

My next vacation, real or imagined.

How I would manage in a zombie apocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't really have a typical Friday night. Sometimes out with friends enjoying a great meal and a manhattan. Sometimes at home yelling at the Cardinal's bullpen over takeout. Try and talk me into one over the other.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll exhaust almost all other options before I ask for help. Working on it though.
You should message me if
You can untangle Christmas lights without swearing. How do they get so mangled even though they sit and don't move for a year?

Please move along if you are a grown man who uses text speak in real life. Actually saying lol instead of laughing out loud in a social setting is not acceptable.
