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.

Now about me, specifically? I do mirror the stereotype of the career-oriented young professional. 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. Thanks in good part to my parent’s gentle prodding (or a swift kick in the rear-end if I was being lazy), I made it through scouting as an Eagle. My passion for the outdoors didn’t end there; 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!

My personality might be described as a combination of Maximus (remember the movie, Gladiator?), and maybe Deadpool. Strength and honor, but with a mischievous twist. Character and integrity are immensely important to me, but I love puns, am not afraid to be politically incorrect, and generally have an anything goes attitude towards life. This last point is particularly important to me because I spent a long time taking life way too seriously. Once learned how to relax a bit, my quality of life went through the roof.

Tl;dr: Basically, what I’m really looking for is someone that can be my other half; someone that shares similar moral 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 on the fly, 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: Boring stuff like investing, economics, and political theory.

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.
The 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
Getting my butt kicked on the yoga mat
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I try to maintain a mature, disciplined countenance, but I'm actually a bit more sensitive than I'd like to admit.
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.
