I'm a native New Englander (Connecticut and Rhode Island) who's been in DC for 5 (going on 6) years. After a year of AmeriCorps, I worked for a domestic non-profit for five years where I traveled around the country building partnerships with corporations. I love to run (I always like to have my next half marathon in my sights!) and to stay active, though my absolute favorite thing in the world is a night at the Improv with a cold beer in hand - I'm a big comedy buff, and generally just love a ridiculous/story-making time. Maybe the easiest way to "get me" is that I am an Irish girl through and through. I like to be out-witted at the same time I try to out-wit you, I can hold my own with some old fashioned banter, I like a good pint and a long story, and when my family gets together, only 51% of us are going to remember it.
I'm genuinely interested in getting to know someone who would consider himself a "good guy" - fun to hang out with, interesting to talk to, searching for more in life, and interested in finding someone who can help them build something together.
Oh, and most people call me by my last name (a clue to my username), and I wear cowboy boots more often than not.
And the lay-overs in different European cities on my return flights aren't a bad perk of the job!
