My self-summary
I'm easy going, witty (supposedly), ambitious, adventurous, and kind.

I like going out with friends to live music, bars, comedy clubs, museums, baseball games, and exploring new places around town. I value physical fitness and living a healthy lifestyle.

I love traveling and visiting foreign places seems to be becoming more addicting and intoxicating with each new trip.
I'm up to 20 countries and five continents after my Spain, Portugal, & Morocco trip last May.

I'm an introvert that really enjoys being around people. That statement is not as contradictory as it appears...
Because of these traits (or maybe in spite of?) I have a lot of friends on the opposite end of the introvert-extrovert spectrum.

Although I do not get to see my family as often as I would like due to being 200 miles away, I'm very close with my family and value that aspect of my life highly. As George Burns said “Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.”
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working as a workers’ comp case manager for the state. I probably spend too much of my work time subversively helping people cut through some bureaucratic red tape when I can get away with it…While this job is fulfilling in that there is always new case law to learn, I’m always looking for bigger and better things and would like to start my own business someday. Grad school is not out of the question (maybe finance?).
In other words, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

I’m always planning my next trip abroad and am always looking for new things to learn/try. I occasionally do some freelance writing and would love to do more creative nonfiction writing.
I’m really good at
Being there for and loyal to friends and family.

Being open minded and learning new things quickly.

Sports. I played every sport I could while growing up and still love playing/watching them. I've been doing crossfit for about three years now and love it. I played tennis in college and still play whenever I get the chance.

Writing. My dream job would be travel writing!
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm one handsome ass motha f*cker...then they learn how incredibly modest I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read and I'm always looking for something new and interesting to raise my consciousness or to take me somewhere imaginatively original.
Right now my favorite writers are David Foster Wallace, Dostoevsky, Rushdie, Marquez, Joyce, Roberto Balano, Marukami, Alice Munro, Pynchon, Delillo, Rachel Kushner, Jhumpa Lahiri, William Gass, Jennifer Egan, Pessoa, Jose Saramago, Joan Didion, & Kafka. When I'm not in the mood to put in the effort (or not feeling pretentious enough) to read these writers, I'll probably be reading someone like Chuck Palahniuk or Kurt Vonnegut. I also really enjoy Malcolm Gladwell & Michael Lewis for my information acquiring reading.

Six things I could never do without
My Kindle Fire tablet, that little Men in Black zapper that makes people forget stuff (great if I go on a date I don't like), the key people in my life that are always loyal and there for me, music, a sense of humor, and my passport.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creating a start-up that I can run from a beach in Barcelona while I drink Sangria.

I'm young, I want to do things I can't when I'm older. No regrets and all that...
On a typical Friday night I am
While the era of Friday nights quickly turning into Sunday afternoons may be over, the occasional seeing in the dawn from the roof of a bar (or better yet, from the beach) can still be enjoyable with the right mix of people & beverages.
That, or doing the same thing I do every other night...Trying to take over the world.
You should message me if
you have something interesting to say/discuss, you are a genuinely good person, or you are gorgeous. Ideally, it'd be great if you exhibited a combination of the three!

More seriously: I am looking for someone who never settles for where they are and that understands that life is the sum of all experiences.
Applicants must be addicted to education. It's a lifelong endeavor and it's our reason for being. An intriguing mind will always be more to me than the most intense physical attraction.
