My self-summary
I am passionate about social justice and God. I consider myself a follower of Jesus rather than ascribe to a particular denomination. I think it is important to be committed to service, poverty, and racial reconciliation and strive to make a difference in the lives of others and in my community.

I like to joke around a lot and laugh. I enjoy running and playing volleyball, and I love to go camping. Dancing is fun, but I am certainly not one to frequent bars. I like spontaneity and embrace simple living. I have yet to have a cross-cultural experience (in terms of international travel) but hope to someday. I am only looking for a long-term, monogamous relationship. Substance is much more important to me than physicality.

I'm pretty sure I want to be a parent someday. I'm not going to ask you to have my babies on the first date, so don't worry! But at least in this stage of my life, I would like to think that me being an inspiring father will be my greatest legacy.
What I’m doing with my life
For the last 4 years, I have worked with adults with severe mental illness as a case manager in an outpatient community mental health center. I recently finished grad school and have my MSW degree.

Prior to this job, I served homeless youth ages 18-22 both in Detroit and New Jersey for nearly 4 years. I am especially passionate about this age group and homelessness.
I’m really good at
jump roping. hahaha. I'm good at running, listening, and being a good friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and how it rarely leaves my face. :P People also often notice how open I am and how I seek to better understand people from all faiths, backgrounds, ethnicities, etc.

Having a quiet evening at home
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I infrequently date because I am not too much about casual dating.
