My self-summary
Hello! I'm a transplant to Cincinnati that loves to travel, bake, read, and spend time with family and friends. I'm outgoing, talkative, and always planning that next activity. Quite simply - I'm looking for someone that also knows what they want in life and isn't afraid to work for it.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm happily working in the accounting/finance field for a major corporation downtown. I used to be an internal auditor, but I found the travel unsustainable.

It took me two years, but I just finished my MBA at Xavier University in August. Without classes twice a week, I've filled my time by volunteering in civic groups and at arts organizations. I'm also the co-leader of my company's Young Professionals group.
I’m really good at
recognizing actors in various movies, planning (virtually anything), wrapping presents, baking quiche, being on time, writing in cursive, and snowboarding.

The last one is a complete lie, I have no skill whatsoever on the slopes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Nothing. My magical powers allow me to be invisible at will. In actuality, I have no idea what people notice about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Freakanomics, Tipping Point, Outliers, Emma

Movies: Gone with the Wind, the Departed, Rear Window, Shawshank Redemption, Fried Green Tomatoes, Pride and Prejudice, A League of Their Own, The Holiday, the Italian Job, When Harry Met Sally

Shows: Downton Abbey, Scandal, Blindspot, Quantico, NCIS, Once Upon a Time, Veronica Mars

Musicals: Book of Mormon, Wicked, and Jersey Boys

Music: classic rock, pop-ish country

Food: chicken tikka masala, Graeter's black raspberry chocolate chip icecream, cheese, southwest chipotle mayo, bagels, garlic smashed redskin potatoes, Creme brûlée, beef tenderloin
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1. carbohydrates
2. world travel
3. my family
4. books
5. Morgan Freeman's narration of, well everything
6. hope

I used to list 'penicillin' in an attempt to be clever (imagine life without that simple of a cure), but then the rocket scientists on this site asked me if I was diabetic. That would be a no. Insert condescending laugh here.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How thankful I am that my life has turned out the way it has thus far.


why people in Cincinnati care so much about the east/west side rivalry.
On a typical Friday night I am
This is the stupidest question on the site. Everyone is "hanging out with friends at a bar"...while it may be true for some, it can't be true for everyone for the following reasons:

a) by Friday you are burnt out from a long week
b) you are socially inept and have no friends
c) you don't routinely go to bars
d) dungeons and dragons is played in your basement, not the Mt. Adams Pavillion

Quite simply, on a Friday I could be having a quiet movie night in, going out on the town in OTR or Mt. Adams, seeing a show at the Aronoff Center, or travelling to visit friends or family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I pretend that I snobbishly don't eat fast food, but I LOVE Chick-fil-A. I had to google the proper spelling of Chick-fil-A...seriously people, why the odd use of hyphens and capitalization?

Also, I competed collegiately in quiz bowl. Bring your "A" game to any battle of the wits ;)
You should message me if
Message me if you are capable of more than a "hey".
The two of us
