My self-summary
Hey there, I moved to D.C. area from up North some years ago to get my Masters and work in international development. I'm happy and feel good about where I'm at in life and would like to start something meaningful now that my travel has calmed down.

I'm looking for someone else who is self-reflective, empathetic, in shape and enjoys learning about the world beyond the U.S. I speak French and Russian, and enjoys learning about other cultures.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been working in international public health for several years, mainly in the countries of western and southern Africa. In short, my job is to make sure that the money we donate to fight HIV AIDS and other infectious diseases goes to the people who need it, not to the corrupt officials who always seem to get in the way.

I'm quite active and enjoy running races, taking bike rides, bouldering, beach volleyball and surfing.
I’m really good at
Imitating accents, losing sunglasses (and apparently breaking my sunglasses too).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've been reading pretty amazing books dealing with quantum reality and being self aware so as to develop the best habits.

For fun I like Murakami books and recently have been reading motivational books like 'the Power of Now' and 'Born to Run' etc. My favorite movie is 2046 by Wong Kar Wai. For music I listen to some trance but am open to everything (even country in moderation) except maybe death metal. I also like some old school hip-hop like Tribe Called Quest, and brit pop like Keane.

Recently I've enjoyed Japanese and Korean food and am learning to cook more Korean too.
The six things I could never do without
Anything beyond the essentials is a bonus ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What it's like in the country I'll visit next (lonely planet helps), where to vacation, next athletic goals (new race, best time, kickboxing tournament), how can I continue to improve myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering. Recently I've been going to the gym and catching up with friends on the phone. Saturday is the night I'll be more active.
You should message me if
If you think we have some things in common and are interested in learning more. I can't see if you 'like' me so just write a message. A bientot...
