My self-summary
I speak German, have been to Transylvania, and talk about world politics one minute and the absurdity of 80's music the next. I've had a lot of different interesting experiences and enjoy talking about almost anything under the sun.

I taught English in Germany for a year and had a lot of fun with that. Although my German was almost fluent, I still occasionally made some pretty funny mistakes, and my kids would ask some pretty hilarious questions.

I am passionate, intellectual, and quirky. ESTJ, if you put any stock in that.

****Note: If you care, I currently have a "chin beard"...decided to shave off the "Abe Lincoln beard." :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Have a relatively new job as a researcher for a labor union, which is a dream job of sorts! Don't worry if you have no idea what that entails - most people don't. It's a lot more interesting than it probably sounds; I essentially do policy work and work similar to investigative journalism.

Previously worked at a migration research institute on a project on environmentally-induced migration and at a think tank focusing on Germany. Graduated with my MA in International Affairs a few years ago and also specialized in international migration. (of the human variety...no, not birds!)

I'm definitely a "work to live" not "live to work" type, so I spend a lot of time engaging in activism, going to concerts, etc. Friends and family are paramount, so I spend a lot of time with them. I'm very involved with a few progressive organizations.
I’m really good at
speaking German, hiking, discussing - from the mundane to the profound, planning trips, using maps/navigating, remembering things (especially if fairly random), organizing
The first things people usually notice about me
My facial hair

A fair number of strangers have commented on my deep, booming voice, which projects really well. Apparently I should "go into broadcasting," "do voice-overs," or "join a choir," according to a few strangers. I'll take those as compliments. *As of May 2012, I have actually done a voice-over!

People often notice that I talk a lot. I'm pretty opinionated but often rather whimsical once you get to know me better. I have a goofy side that shows itself after a while, and I'm rarely boring.

The six things I could never do without
1. Family and friends
2. Books
3. My passport
4. My music collection
5. Sense of humor
6. Social justice and politics
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the world a better place, where I would like to travel next, the roots of economic inequality, good places to eat, lots more...just ask me. I'm a highly inquisitive person.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a laid-back bar drinking some good beer with friends, or maybe a house party. It really depends on my mood/what is going on that weekend, but you usually will NOT find me in clubs and other places where it's too loud to have a good conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I find women in tights or leggings very sexy, yet I didn't really understand the difference between them until a few years ago...

Actually that's not all that private. I'm a pretty open book :-)
