I'm an Austinite living in Washington, DC, working in U.S. foreign policy, international relations, and global governance. I may first come off as tall, dark, and serious, but when you start a conversation with me, my eyes light up and I quickly turn irrepressibly talkative, cheeky, and probably a little cheesy.
I've moved around often these past five years (Austin, The Hague, DC, Paris, Vienna, Bay Area). I'm ready to slow down, have fun, sink roots, and explore.
I love to read, write, walk, hike, talk, listen, eat, swim, play with dogs, drink coffee, shoot pool, and see live music (that certainly runs the gamut doesn't it?). Though sometimes I prefer to stay in and binge on great dramas, provocative documentaries, tenderhearted indie flicks, or curl up with a volume--new, or preferably old.
I'm passionate about ideas, history, storytelling, political equity, legal rights, social justice, global threats, and world peace. I've always fancied myself brethren to Jason Segel's character in SLC Punk (kudos if you know what I'm talking about). I'm also deadly serious about the evolution of folk and Americana; the right cocktail; beaches, mountains, and valleys; the perfect sentence; coffee and breakfast tacos; and getting far, far away.
And, yes, I really am 6'3"; so, stand up straight.
