My self-summary
Hello, Internet.

Welcome to my profile. You should probably date me.

A bit about myself: Born and raised in Boston. Did a short stint in NYC. Now working my dream job for the coolest, most innovative company out there.

I love roadtrips, live music (rock shows & the symphony), reading, traveling, and spontaneous adventure.

Pretty much everything is on my bucket list, so I'm looking for a partner in crime who's up for stretching her comfort zone and wants to grow and learn together.
What I’m doing with my life
About three years ago, I did some thinking and decided I needed a fresh start. So, that's what I did; out with the old and in with new.. Yes, that's vague, but who doesn't like a little mystery?

Apart from working a job I love, I'm focused on collecting experiences and trying to be a better person everyday (though I do occasionally take a day off from that because trying to be a good person can be exhausting).
I’m really good at
Roadtripping

Recommending new music

Making pasta sauce

Quoting Aressted Development

Putting the toilet seat down

Sarcasm, wit, and snarkiness

Efficiently exploring a new city / traveling
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I'm impossibly good-looking.. That's just my guess though ;) You'll have to ask other people
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Breakfast of Champions, Steve Jobs, Your Brain at Work, Dataclysm, Modern Romance, etc..

Movies: Machete (1 & 2), Sin City (1 & 2), The Science of Sleep, Inception, Eternal Sunshine, Her, Zoolander, etc..

Shows: Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, Daily Show, Seinfeld, etc..

Music: Lovedrug, Silversun Pickups, The Dear Hunter, Brand New, Phantogram, Cold War Kids, Night Terrors of 1927, Sleeping At Last, etc..

Food: Chicken Parmesan (anything pasta, really)..
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1: Really good speakers / headphones
2: Music
3: Sunshine
4: Pasta
5: Fun
6: Adventure
7: Imagination
8: Purpose
9: Bending the rules
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything.. all the time.. but specifically:

Do dogs think about the advancement of their species?

Why people say they "could care less" when they really mean that they "couldn't care less".. and other misused sayings..

The inefficacy of a broken two party political system..

What I'm gonna eat later...

What technology / society will look like in the relatively near future...

How to tip the scale that is work / life balance more heavily towards life (okc is something I'm trying out in this regard).

How humanity has progressed so far in some areas but not at all in others.

How to extend my next work trip to ensure exploration time.

You know, those kinds of things..
On a typical Friday night I am
doing the same thing I do every night... trying to take over the world..
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I hate ostriches. They freak me out.
You should message me if
you'd prefer not to spend too much time messaging on here and would rather converse over a drink or two (or preferably doing something a little more creative).. also if:

you're awesome.
you're passionate.
you're not so worried about what other people think.
you're an optimistic cynic.. or a cynical optimist..
you're genuine, have integrity, and conviction.

you noticed and appreciated that I said ‘you're’ and not ‘your’ in the above sentences.

you want to conquer the world..
