Update! I am relocating to Honolulu, HI for work on 5/5/13. I can't
wait to see where this new adventure takes me! I also have a
residence in the Seattle area, and absolutely love it there. After
spending my entire life coping with midwest winters, the cool rainy
winter out here doesn't seem so bad.
As far as what I'm like, I think if you asked my friends they would
tell you I'm smart, loyal, funny, genuine, and humble. In my free
time I enjoy working out, checking out new bars and restaurants,
taking in local arts/culture, being outside, and generally trying
new things. Some of my favorite activities include taking
photographs, people watching, racquetball, curling (yes, the
sport), shooting pool, and going to movies.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing IT consulting right now. It's not really what I had
planned on doing after grad school, but to my pleasant surprise, I
enjoy it immensely!
I’m really good at
Keeping an open mind, learning new things, being empathetic, making
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: I love movies. I'll watch almost anything and I really like
going to the theater. Favorites include: Fight Club, Boogie Nights,
Pulp Fiction, American Beauty, Layer Cake, City of God. I also love
pretty much anything with Arnold Schwarzenegger or anything
directed by John Carpenter.
TV Shows: I don't watch a ton of TV but I enjoy: Mad Men, Top Chef,
Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, The X-Files,
Louie, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Rescue Me.
Food: Sushi and Italian food are at the top of my list. I was a
vegetarian for the first 23 years of my life, but since then I've
become incredibly open-minded when it comes to food and am willing
to try pretty much anything at least once! I would say my favorite
restaurant/hangout that I've been to in Seattle so far is
Music: I feel like I have an incredibly diverse taste in music. I
have an extreme soft spot for 80s hair metal, but I'll listen to
anything from rap/hip-hop, country, rock, disco, electronic,
dubstep... whatever. My dad has owned a CD/record store for the
past 35+ years, so I was exposed to a lot of music at an early age
and don't discriminate!
The six things I could never do without
1. Good food
3. My Camera
5. My iPad
6. My Milwaukee Brewers hat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether it's awesome being just like Ted Mosby or whether I should
try to be more like Barney Stinson.
On a typical Friday night I am
Staying in and watching a movie or listening to music. Or out at a
low-key bar with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm addicted to the reality TV show The Millionaire Matchmaker.
You should message me if
you want to. Or if I send you a message :)
