My self-summary
Hello! I’m a transplant to the greater DC area. I grew up and went to college in Upstate New York, and I came to DC to follow an interest in public policy. I currently work in the events / logistics field for a rapidly growing educational organization. I find great fulfillment in my work by helping students and educators succeed with their careers, by having the opportunity to travel across the country and meet lots of great people, and by working with an amazing team in the office.

I definitely mirror the stereotype of the career-oriented young professional, in part. For example, I check my work emails way too frequently. Similar to that joke about how easy it is to quit smoking, yes, I can put my phone down and stop thinking about work. I’ve done it thousands of times before.

Fortunately, there's more to me than work! I am a deeply driven guy that wants to reach the horizon. I maintain a very active lifestyle and split my activities up between the gym, yoga, running, rec-sports, and pick-up games of pretty much everything. I'm extremely passionate about the out-doors, and I feel perfectly at home in the middle of nature. I also have begun scratching my travel itch. Hawaii, Germany, and Pakistan are checked off. Hong Kong is coming up in July!

I value discipline, hard work, humility, and integrity. Although I recognize that perfection is untenable, I still aim high. My faith is important to me, but I balance that with rational thought. At my core, I believe that the world is a complicated place. There are few easy answers, and the best path to a principled set of moral beliefs comes from understanding multiple perspectives.

In a nutshell, I'm looking for someone that shares similar convictions, is adventurous and optimistic about life, and seeks each day to be a little bit better than the day before.
What I’m doing with my life
Keeping busy! Goals and adult things, but also remembering to have some fun.
I’m really good at
Athletics, learning, eating well, and making "punny" jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Good posture and a positive attitude.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My bookshelves (I have several!) are full of all kinds of things. In essence, I just like to read!

Movies: Action, Comedy, or Sci-Fi. I'm not picky, please just have a good plot!

Music: My musical interests are all over the place. What I listen to generally reflects my mood. I'll go with up-beat instrumentals, meditative tracks, rock, and sometimes even that emo stuff that normal people drop after high school.

Food: I used to be Paleo, but I missed my morning carbs too much. Most of my diet still consists of fruits, veggies, and proteins.
Six things I could never do without
- Family
- Friends
- /r/ jokes & imgur
- Fresh air & exercise
- Healthy food
- Glasses / Contacts (seriously, I'm blind without them)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Next travel destination, work (bad habit, sorry!), how to best prepare for the future, the next opportunity to play a board game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something active!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I try to be tough, but I'm actually a big softie.
You should message me if
you know a good joke, want to hear a good joke (I think they're good!), and/or are interested in getting to know me better.
The two of us
