My self-summary
I was born in Philadelphia (yes the actual city, not the suburbs) and went to high school on the Main Line. After stops at super fancy universities in Boston and England, and a few years working as a consultant in Washington DC, I'm back in town for a graduate program at Penn. It's fun to be back home, but also a little crazy how much the city has changed since I last lived here.

Like most people on this site, I work a lot, keep myself really busy, have a wide variety of interests, and am just a little towards the sarcastic side of the spectrum. Also I generally try not to take myself too seriously. I mean, let's be honest: if you're on OKC you're probably in a position to judge others too harshly, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Grad school at Penn. Outside of that I keep myself sharp by writing a lot on my area of expertise, Russia, for a bunch of magazines and websites.
I’m really good at
Writing proposals, writing editorials, writing research papers, writing magazine articles, writing online dating profiles, writing sarcastic tweets, and writing in general. And PowerPoint. I'm also pretty good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
More often than not, I am not the tallest person in a room. Also, I am sometimes loud.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: VanMorrison, Daft Punk, various kinds of awesome techno
TV: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the League, Justified, Archer, Game of Thrones, The Wire, Dexter
Books: The Death of Ivan Illych, Goodbye To All That, Freedom, Trotsky
The six things I could never do without
NFL (Eagles, when they're not horrendous)
Indian food
Wheat beer
The Financial Times
My niece and nephews
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Russian economics, Russian health, Russian politics, and America's policies towards Russia (detecting a pattern?). I also spend a lot of time thinking about the more mundane questions of life in DC such as "why is my rent so high?" and "how can the Metro suck this much?"
On a typical Friday night I am
People seem list every possible thing that they might do, so I'll strike an original note and say "probably studying so I don't fail out of school"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My high school moved to a new location about 20 miles away after I graduated, which makes reunions even more awkward than usual
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys

You should message me if
You're driven but you're not totally enamored with yourself. Being smart, ambitious, and passionate is great. Being convinced that you're the greatest thing since sliced bread? That's a bit much.

Or, failing that, if you just really love The Wire. It's awesome
