My name's Alexa - pretty sneaky screen name, I know. I do eat meat, and I don't run marathons - two things I would have never thought to mention up front before living in DC. (Although don't despair veggie runner, it's totally cool if you don't/do). I also enjoy volleyball, whiskey, listening to podcasts, and trying to dance like a robot.
I'm looking for someone who I can really enjoy spending time with, learn from, feel energized by, and comfortable with. So many details (likes / dislikes) end up being less important to me than being able to recognize awesomeness in each other, expose each other to new things and experiences, be kind to each other, and be drawn in to each other.
I like my job, the chance to explore social justice issues across contexts, and, of course, adding vacations on to the back end of work trips (last few have been Turkey, South Africa, Rwanda/Uganda, and India). I usually end up going unplanned - but that's when the interesting things happen.
Robyn, Jenny Lewis, Shaggy, Voxtrot, most pop country (shut it), folk, indie, and top 40 to get my dance on, although I let Pandora take a lot of this on for me.
