In March of 2015, I talked my boss into letting me work remotely,
so now I no longer have to go into "the office". As an avid
traveler, the awesomeness of this development cannot be overstated.
So, I am now location independent, splitting my time between the
Seattle area and anywhere else I want to be.
I cherish friendship, family and adding value to the lives of those
I touch. I have rolled with the punches and experienced enough life
to be jaded by it, but I’m not. I trust that you are not
Obviously, I'm looking for someone rad. I am attracted to women who
are intelligent, curious, worldly, self-aware and empathetic. Most
importantly, I treasure those who dream big and focus more on
life’s opportunities than its potential pitfalls. Also, being able
to laugh at yourself and life's absurdities is a big, big plus...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do investment banking. Specifically, as an M&A advisor, I
broker the sale of medium-sized privately held businesses. Its a
lot of spreadsheets and virtual handholding...
And what dating profile would be complete without a completely
gratuitous humblebrag? ;) I'm grateful to be the first person in my
family to go to college. With financial help from the Veterans
Administration, I ended up earning a law degree, an MBA, and an
LL.M in tax law from the University of Washington. Yay for
P.S. Even though I am in investment banking, Elizabeth Warren is my
hero. I am pissed she didn't decide to run :(

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking quickly on my feet and knowing what to do in an emergency
(blown tire on the freeway, zombie apocalypse... etc.).

"Sometimes I can feel my bones straining under the weight of all
the lives I'm not living."
—Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly
Weighing the pros and cons of the "chicken bus." I backpacked
around South America for five months (7,000 miles, all by bus). Its
super cheap and a great way to see the beauty and reality of the
place you are at, but its hard on the ass, joints and eardrums...
