Hi. A little background…I grew up in the Deep South and spent time
all along the East Coast, Europe, the Midwest, and other places
along the way. After 10 years in DC I call this home now. I like to
spend time outside whether its hiking, running, or just relaxing
near a body of water.
I think my friends would describe me as a good person, fun, a
responsible risk taker, athletic, and sincere. I'm addicted to
learning so I've done a few different things professionally over
the years. My current job is perfect for me, as it feeds the ADD at
a macro level. I have a creative streak and I like to build things,
so I might drift into the entrepreneurial world at some
I feel very lucky to have lived a good and interesting life so far.
Obviously, there's something missing so here we are on OkCupid.
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally I work on budget and policy issues for the federal
government. My coworkers and bosses are great, the work is
interesting, and every so often it gets put to good use,
Outside of work I'm relaxing with friends, running, working out,
reading, or working with a veteran's group in the community. I also
do a little writing, for work and fun, and take a lot of pictures.
I’m really good at
Being sillier than I look. Running, grilling, and using my Southern
accent during meetings to get folks' attention.
The first things people usually notice about me
Other than I look young, nor sure. But I have been told that I
'look conservative', whatever that means, which cracks me up
because I'm not. Someday I hope to use my conservative looks for a
news-worthy political prank...any ideas?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll eat anything however Thai, Sushi, and Indian are my favorites.
I like most things acoustic and everything live. Long-time
favorites are Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, U2, and BB
I read a lot, mostly non-fiction. The Economist, Quartz, New York
Times, New Yorker, etc.
The six things I could never do without
the people in my life
really great wine every once in a while
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Random stuff that interests me (instead of thinking about work).
Things I want to accomplish at work. The world. Places to visit.
On a typical Friday night I am
at dinner with friends at a restaurant or their home
You should message me if
You are fun, care about people, are curious about the world, maybe
a little quirky, enjoy life, and love to laugh.
