My self-summary
Hi! I'm a relatively recent Seattle transplant from Las Vegas. I love to laugh and have a pretty dry, sarcastic sense of humor.

I'm a big USC football fan, a bandwagon Seahawks fan, and my background is in analytics so I'm a bit of a nerd at heart. Although I don't get to do it often enough, I absolutely love to travel. My favorite place in the world is London and I my most recent trip abroad was an epic Iceland road trip!

Likes: wit, drive, intelligent conversation, craft beer, beautiful scenery.
Dislikes: feeling complacent, pasta leftovers.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm enjoying summer and trying to get outside as much as I can. Patio happy hour counts but being lakeside is better. I've decided that I love summers in Seattle more than other places I've lived - people start coming out of hibernation and the city comes alive. Apart from that (and, you know, working), I'm having fun continuing to get to know the city and I try to do something new every other week or so. I spend a lot of time with my friends in the area and try to visit home (Vegas) every few months.

Things I wish I were doing more often: hiking, getting out on the water, reading.
I’m really good at
Laughing at my own jokes, air hockey, and being the worst person in the room at movie trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically? I hear that people like my smile or my eyes most often. Personality-wise? I laugh a lot and am pretty sarcastic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book genres are typically sci-fi, fantasy, or heady fiction. I loved all of the Harry Potter books (of course), my favorite author is John Fowles (followed by Michael Chrichton), and I secretly enjoy geeky books about behavioral econ and business.

I'm not much of a TV/movie snob, which is probably because I've seen surprisingly few shows that most people consider essential. Generally I'll wait for enough people to recommend something then binge watch it. No shame. For example: even though I'm current on Game of Thrones, I'm just starting Arrested Development. I KNOW.

My movie taste is pretty low key: I love action films, comedy, musicals, and the occasional cheesy rom com.

I'm also not much of a music snob. Top 40 is typically fine, but my go-to playlists typically center around indie music, pop, or jazz (with good trumpet playing, not new age crap).

Regarding food, I like experimenting in the kitchen but am always up for sushi or Thai and am perpetually in search of the perfect jazz cafe... anything with live music and stuffy, overpriced coffee that you can sip until it gets cold to justify taking up a seat.
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends and family
2. Laughter!
3. My dog Bond, for whom I have ~5 nicknames
4. My phone, aka infinite knowledge machine
5. Passport
6. Chocolate. Obviously.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends, going to happy hour, or relaxing at home and spending some quality time with my dog.
