My self-summary
Now that I've got your attention...

I think something I really enjoy is that I have a lot of wonderful people in my life who really like me. Would you like to find out why? :)

Just let me know when you're available. Until then, allow me to entertain you with a few vignettes...

Story 1:

I went out for brunch and bottomless mimosas with a couple friends who are blind. After brunch, I helped them hail a cab. I opened the door for them and then said good bye. Then I turned around and crashed into a sign post forehead first. :-/

Story 2:

When I was fifteen, I tricked an acquaintance into thinking I had a twin brother. Enough said.

Story 3:

I spent eleven years working in my family's business so we could one day own our own home.

Story 4:

I organized a civil rights campaign in India (immigrant/labor rights).

Story 5:

A dear friend called me at 10:30pm once after a bad date / break up with her then boyfriend. I listened and comforted her for an hour. I gave her insight into the male mind. The next day, I edited her email to her ex to ensure it didn't all end in flames. Unfortunately, I failed in influencing her, and that man may still be traumatized as a result.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm always interested in healthy living - athletics, home cooking, etc. However, I suck at any sport that involves a ball.

My family is a blessing, if anxiety provoking ("when will you _____?!"). You can fill in the blank. Trust me, whatever you come up with is the right answer.

My friends are so friggin' cool.

I love my career. I serve vulnerable populations yet enjoy air conditioning. My colleagues can be intense. I'm relatively chill. I make fun of them.

I love living in DC. This city is so pretty and interesting. I bought my condo about a year-and-half ago, and am now furnishing it. I always get a kick out of being able to see the White House from in front of my building.
I’m really good at
I'm hilarious. Most days I crack myself up.

I am a damn good listener. Damn good.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm kind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read :) j/k... Khalil Gibran is wonderful
Sharabi by Amitabh Bachchan (in Bollywood this is a classic)
Friends - around our age we can finally start relating to these people
Pandora on Black Eyed Peas, Savasana, Frank Sinatra, Motown
Indian food... soul food!

French fries (A category in and of themselves. Plus, depending on where you get them, they may or may not qualify as food)
The six things I could never do without
1. My family
2. My friends
3. My health - Athletics and healthy lifestyle are a huge part of my life.
4. My career and education
5. Humor
6. The iPhone 5S Gold! Six week wait time, baby!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Right now... furniture...
On a typical Friday night I am
I really want to make a habit of watching more movies on a Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I spent a year on the Harvard Boxing Club. This means I spent a lot of time in grad school dodging punches (or not) from 18 and 19 year olds. I once had a guy from the law school tell me how proud he was of the black eye I gave him. I think it gave him some weird street cred with his classmates and professors :-/
