I am an athletic nerd, open-minded, and witty
For work, I'm a corporate strategy consultant, but I hope you'll give me a chance anyway! I enjoy what I do - particularly the challenging problem solving, interesting clients, and incredibly bright, interesting colleagues - but it doesn't define who I am and I'm not sure how long I'll be doing it since the lifestyle is tough.
- retaining random, useless knowledge
- being considerate
- solving problems
- making the best of things
