My self-summary
From Seattle/West Seattle. Digitalite. Grateful. Nerdy. Currently unbearded. Compassionate. Enthusiastic. Gamer. Musician. Art lover. Pun maker. Loud talker. Dancer. Drinker of all things. Eater of more.
What I’m doing with my life
work: social media manager. Basically I get paid to chat on Twitter and play with fun analytics.

Trying to balance saying "yes" to as much as possible while still being disciplined about self-care.

I don't have a car and mostly get around by bus, Car2go, & cabs. I have an uncommon affection for riding public transit.
I’m really good at
Empathizing, finding extreme moments of joy and gratitude, bullshitting, hugging, making sentences convoluted, spelling and grammar, writing, oversharing, math & numbers (gimme a good spreadsheet)
The first things people usually notice about me
It's probably my eyes or a big ol' smile.

And that I talk and laugh a lot. And often loudly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Six things I could never do without
dining
dancing
conversation
writing
music
Smart phone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
motivations, the printed word, the meaning of happiness, the importance of balance, perception, the future of social media (technologically and culturally), privilege, inequality, the Seahawks, science
On a typical Friday night I am
Carousing, often including dining, drinks, and dancing, or perhaps board or video games at home, recovering from too much of the aforementioned three D's during the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Though I do have a strong introverted side, I'm not very private and am pretty happy to discuss and share just about everything - just in person.
You should message me if
-You're passionate about being the best version of yourself, whatever that means for you
-We have some similar interests, and of those we don't share, you'd like to hear about mine and introduce me to yours.
-You want a great first date.
-You've read this profile, looked at my pictures, and think I'm interesting/hot. Whichever.
