I moved back to Seattle six years ago after grad school in NYC and a few years driving a boat around the Caribbean and the South.
I'm well educated according to society, but feel experience is the better professor. So, I travel for arts (member of the Met in NYC)and music, for sights, for work and for just getting the hell out about once a month.
Sometimes I must travel for work to far flung unforgiving locales, I'm comfortable getting thrown into precarious positions and adapt well. So, I'm not afraid to meet your friends, try a new place or show up on my own. I will however, not sing karaoke.
Oh, and I swear like a sailor, if I'm allowed. It is often a challenge to qwell the crassness of my job from the intellectual pursuits in my personal life, but I still clean up well, and can act as civilized as any situation may require.
I'm a smartass, which, I've been told by a great sage, is better than being a dumbass. You might read into more of that down the line. If you can be sarcastic and have a quick wit, I would appreciate the banter.
