My self-summary
Hey y'all. Heart on my sleeve, honest to a fault, and I don't play games. Looking for something serious.

Now that THAT'S out of the way I'm a former performer turned political activist and organizer, and I'm currently in grad school at GW studying Political Management after quitting my life as a cruise ship singer. Weird combo, huh? I know. But on the plus side, I now get to kick butt at karaoke without feeling bad about it.

I'm also a rock climber and avid traveler. I've been to all 50 states, love a good roadtrip, and go on regular climbing trips - including Squamish, British Columbia in a month!

Travel is the thing that helps us realize that no matter where you're from or what you look like, that people are people and we all want the same things. It's really important to me.

I also have a very strong underdog complex. I love it.
What I’m doing with my life
See above ^

Just got back from GA6, which has me very optimistic going forward, regardless of the ridiculous punditry and hot takes.
I’m really good at
Saying yes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Superficially I'm not the tallest guy in the world, but I have it on good authority that my butt is pretty great. Their words, not mine. Hopefully that balances things out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Currently reading biographies on Lafayette, Washington, Hamilton... yeaaaah I'll let you guess why. Also: The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck, The Alchemist, anything by Don Miguel Ruiz, The Power of Now, Kerouac. Love personal development books.

Lord of the Rings, Ender's Game series, Game of Thrones up through book three (I feel strongly about this). The Things They Carried, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and all other Douglas Adams books.

Movies/TV: Adventure/travel documentaries. Love 'em. Long Way Round (with Ewan McGregor), Top Gear, Cosmos, Planet Earth etc. Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Moonrise Kingdom, Life of Pi, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Star Trek, Lost, Jericho, Dr. Who, Stranger than Fiction, Mel Brooks movies, Big Fish, Princess Bride, Love Actually, Moulin Rouge, LOTR. Many, many more.

Right now I'm really hooked on Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness (the guy from Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin, if that means anything to you)
Six things I could never do without
1. NY style pizza
2. Adventure
3. My passport
4. My family and friends
5. Rock Climbing
6. Being outside

7. Yoga pants. Yours. Not mine. Lord have mercy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next trip, and currently how best to win some damn elections.

How I can choose love over fear in any given situation. We're all so pre-programmed to react out of fear, and it's just.... just useless.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends, but I'm really not all that wild anymore at my advanced age. Netflix, climbing, bar with friends, these are all possibilities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently learned that cutting jalapenos and then touching your... nether regions... makes for the worst 20 minutes of your life.

Also I use emojis. Deal with it. They're useful for conveying tone in a text-based world.
You should message me if
You're a feminist and don't mind making the first move. I might not have seen your profile yet! Cut me some slack! ;)
