Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love life. My nickname through college was Renegade and most
people would pick the word "ridiculous" to describe me. I love my
family and my friends (but let's be honest...everybody on here says
that). My passion is to help people- with whatever I'm doing. I
work for the Red Cross doing disaster operations but I keep a very
good work-life balance.
I love adventures- whether big or small. I am very active- I'll
play any sport, and I am the happiest and most at peace when I'm in
the mountains lying by a creek, running on the beach, playing
volleyball, bodysurfing, surfing , listening to a good live band
with some soul, or people-watching near a busy intersection with
some good food. I love food... Everything about it. I will eat just
about anything. I'm never satisfied with the status quo, and am
always wanting to learn and grow more. I have Spotify, Pandora, or
Grooveshark on all day. I will listen to anything...try me.
My sense of humor is very dry and I try to never take myself too
seriously and I can laugh at just about anything- yes, even myself-
I also believe that people don't ever grow up- we just learn how to
act in public. If you agree with me, we will get along just fine
After I graduated from Stanford I worked overseas, and back and
forth between the West and East coasts for awhile. Then I moved to
Detroit, then Kentucky, and now back to DC.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Laughing a lot, enjoying the small and funny moments, thinking big,
dreaming, acting on those dreams, trying to become the best in the
world in whatever field I choose to pursue (it will likely be many
at the same time), exploring, making new friends, keeping old
friends, and you know, the usual.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
pretty much everything.
In reality, my dragon-fighting skills, cartwheel skills, and mind
control skills are top notch but I am working on my invisibility
If I want to become good at something, I'll make it happen, unless
it's calculus, in which case it will win every time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am tall and have blonde hair and very blue eyes. Beyond
that, they probably notice that I like to laugh a lot, and can have
three conversations at once about serious things while joking with
someone else at the same time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Historical fiction, military history, Pat Conroy, the Wire, lots of
movies, any kind of music but specifically country, classic rock,
jazz, rock, techno, latin...so ya everything. I will eat anything
but I am on a worldwide quest to find the best kabobs in every city
on the planet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a good pair of headphones- ideally playing something, my water
bottle, my leatherman (yes I was a Boy Scout), a good pair of shoes
that look nice but that I can chase down a robber with, a backpack
with endless capacity, and a map.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
changing the world, starting new businesses, wondering how a
certain product got on a shelf, why people aren't happier in life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
out on a weekend adventure, watching a movie, cooking dinner, out
dancing, or responding to a global disaster...or doing all of those
at the same time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I took the cookie from the cookie jar.
