My self-summary
After living in NY, NJ, GA, NC, SC, CA, and IL, I'm happy to call Seattle home for what I hope to be a long time to come. The last couple years have been quite busy and full of changes as I finished grad school in Chicago, traveled around the world, and moved to Capitol Hill. A couple of projects in Dublin, Ireland and Kalamazoo, MI were great fun but prevented me from exploring Seattle as much as I would've liked. I'm making up for lost time and hoping to find someone interesting to join me.

I am an athletic nerd, open-minded, and witty
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying exploring Seattle, reconnecting with friends after 6 months away, organizing my home and finally finishing unpacking, and getting back into some neglected hobbies.

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.
I’m really good at
- learning things quickly
- retaining random, useless knowledge
- being considerate
- solving problems
- making the best of things
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot
