Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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.

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

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Phone (let's be honest)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Mise en place
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't really have a normal Friday, or weekend really. Here's some

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

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
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
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.
