My self-summary
Adventurous, driven, brunch loving graduate student.
I sat at a table surrounded by close friends for my birthday this July and realized that I have a great life, but I'm missing a partner to share it with (I know, super cheesy).

I like to stay active between time at the gym, going for runs, and hiking. My running partner is my 40lb puppy that tries to sit on my shoulder like a parrot. I’m always up for scratching something off of my bucket list. Skydiving, flying planes, anything I think might be fun. I also take work and school pretty seriously, but I often think of ditching them for becoming the next Anthony Bourdain.
What I’m doing with my life
In a perfect world I would be bouncing between homes in my favorite countries, making local friends, eating, writing and taking a few pictures along the way. Until then, I love finding new ways to challenge myself. In high school it was being homeless for a week for a project, a couple summers ago it was street food in china and a couple nights ago it was salsa dancing.

[insert resume here haha]
I grew up in DC and went to a small college with a strange name in PA. My undergrad degree is in psychology, but after working in the field as an outreach case manager I found that I wanted to have a greater impact on how mental health is treated in the country. So, now I'm in a grad program with a focus on Health Policy/saving the world. My old job involved traveling around the city helping individuals with mental illnesses live happy, independent lives. I love what I’m doing now, but occasionally miss working directly with clients.
I’m really good at
Pretending I can train my dog
Brunch. Making, eating, finding. I'm an expert.
Signing autographs as Tiger Woods in China
Wrestling kayak paddles away from otters
Finding incredible places while being completely lost
The first things people usually notice about me
A stranger on metro told me "You look like a black, what's that actor's name... You know, that lower class boy in titanic that drowned."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Malcolm Gladwell, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Elegant Universe, Goosebumps (Yup, I said it)

Movies: Anything Christopher Nolan, The Goonies, Wedding Crashers

TV: "Legen... Wait for it..." "Phrasing!" "Brody!" "No unitaskers!" "Reggie Ladoux did this!?" "DJ Roomba" "Moment of zen"

Music: Mouse Rat (bonus points if you get that) Otherwise, anything from Wale and Grizzly Bear to Hendrix and Tchaikovsky.

Food: Anything twice. Pho (best hangover cure), Pancakes/Waffles/Crepes, Thai, Brunch (That's a food, right?)
The six things I could never do without
Running shoes
Phone (let's be honest)
A wok
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If starting grad school this summer was genius or madness.
My next trip.
How to teach my dog to fetch me a beer.
Mise en place
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't really have a normal Friday, or weekend really. Here's some highlights.
Had to run from a hookah bar (long story)
Had a date ruined by a palm reader (longer story)
Perfected my tiramisu recipe (tasty story)
Learned to never trust a shirtless bald man in a fur vest (parenthesis)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was little, I wanted to be a mad scientist. For Show and Tell in kindergarten I tried to do the Egg in a Bottle trick from a chemistry set. I got something wrong and it turned the whole thing into a giant stink bomb. They couldn’t use that classroom for a month…
You should message me if
I'm not looking to rush into anything serious, but I'm also not going to waste my time on a one night stand. Other than that...

1) You aren't an axe murderer
2) You'll laugh at my stupid jokes and can effortlessly go from inaugural balls to dive bars
3) Seriously, #1 is a deal breaker

Bonus points if you can touch your nose with your tongue. I've never met someone that can actually do it.
