My self-summary
Moved to DSM from DC just over 6 months ago. I enjoy watching movies and TV, reading, traveling, live music, politics, visiting museums, eating out, playing tennis and watching a number of sports, and spending time with friends and family. Thanks to school and work I know people all over the country; I enjoy visiting them when I can.

I generally like to do casual things. Going out is great; but I'm equally happy hanging out at home and having a quiet night. I love my job, but I don't work all the time. In my spare time, I coach a Little League baseball team in the spring. It's a blast.

What else? I'm funny, reliable, and smart. Not a bad combo!
What I’m doing with my life
Saving the world one day at a time, and trying to enjoy myself on the side.
I’m really good at
Being a fun and down to earth guy. Also trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure - nobody ever tells me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like some fiction, more serious books like The Namesake or legal / spy thrillers. Lots of nonfiction, just about anything - lately I keep reading history. The New Yorker.

Movies - I like a little bit of everything - foreign films, blockbusters, even the adult / kid friendly Disney / Pixar cartoons. Recent movies I've liked - American Hustle, Her.

TV - Sports. Mad Men, The Americans, The Good Wife, The Newsroom. Almost anything Sorkin. Was strangely addicted to CSI Miami - maybe because I lived there for 2 years. Homeland.

Music - Springsteen far and above anything else. Also southern rock / alt country like Drive By Truckers or softer folk / country like Lucinda Williams. U2, REM, lots of 80's stuff. It should have guitars, whether electric or acoustic. Saw Gillian Welch and David Rawlings live a couple of years ago - brilliant!

Food - I like almost anything.
The six things I could never do without
1. Close friends and family.
2. Feeling good about the work I do.
3. Fun vacations!
4. Reading a good book.
5. Morning coffee.
6. Boston Red Sox.
7. The Internet (it's a series of tubes, you know).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work / life balance, the sorry state of our political system, where I'm headed on my next trip, why I could be the Red Sox general manager, moving to San Diego to escape polar vortexes, why so many people keep doing the same old things and expect different results.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes out to low key dinner and/or drinks with friends, other times at home recharging my batteries for the weekend. Or maybe off to visit friends, or at a concert.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me when you meet me.
You should message me if
You're looking for a great guy!
