My self-summary
I'm a hard-working, thoughtful type of guy from the Midwest who has been here in DC since starting college ten years ago. I can be kind of quiet and reserved; however, I am very attentive and enjoy experiencing new things. I especially enjoy traveling and have visited twenty-five countries on four continents. For me, travel is great because it facilitates the sharing of ideas in a complex, globalized world, while learning about other cultures. Plus, it's cool to see where history was made. I'm attempting to reach 30 countries visited before I turn 30 in October.

Back in the real world, I'm lucky to work in a niche foreign policy field that I find interesting. I'm looking for someone else who shares my curiosity about the world and how it works. I'm a big believer in random acts of kindness and especially enjoy thoughtful conversations.

I love that DC provides plenty of opportunities to go out and see and do new things. I enjoy listening to music and had played the sax back in high school. I also like to go to the movies and am a big fan of comedy and the occasional blockbuster action film. I'm good at trivia games and not bad at Scrabble. As someone who speaks German, I especially like hefeweiss and other German beers.

The first things people usually notice about me
The super-cool Transitions lenses on my glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Kafka's "The Trial" is my favorite book because it mirrors my political philosophy. Malcolm Gladwell and Bill Bryson are excellent. I especially enjoyed Walter Isaacson's bio on Steve Jobs.

Movies: Anything with Steve Carell or Will Ferrell; Bond 007 movies; Bourne Identity trilogy; and random comedies.

Shows: Breaking Bad; Dexter; Family Guy; Parks and Recreation; and The Office. I prefer Conan to Leno or Letterman; Colbert and Stewart are pretty good, too.

Music: Almost anything; however, I tend to download a lot of what ends up being labelled "alternative rock." Foo Fighters, Radiohead, etc.

Food: I like Mexican and Italian food the most; never really developed a taste for Indian food or Ethiopian. German food is especially good.
