My self-summary
I'm a down to earth intellectual who lives an active and balanced life. I love to read, bike, people watch, and engage in conversations with interesting people. I keep my spiritual fire lit both through prayer, the sacraments, and participating in my parish community. I also like to travel to new places and visit old friends. I find that when I travel I learn just as much about myself as I do about the places that I visit.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend my days analyzing the economics of international trade trends and issues. In my spare time I work with people who want to become Catholic and get together with friends for dinners, drinks, listening music, Philly centric sporting events, etc. I am also currently savoring memories from a recent vacation to Istanbul and Cappadocia.
I’m really good at
Listening and using maps

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why there is poverty...why some countries are poorer than others...what does this week's gospel reading mean?
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday...usually I'm at a happy hour with friends, watching a foreign movie on the big screen, or just chilling out at home
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
But then it wouldn't be private, would it? Inquire within if you are brave enough....
