My self-summary
Moved here from Texas (Houston, by way of Austin) about three years ago for work. Hasn't been as bad as I thought. Right now, I'm focused on my career and my hobbies.

I'm half Indian (India, that is) half Mexican. They call me curry burrito, much to my chagrin. There's not as much ethnic diversity here in Ohio compared to what I'm used to, but I'm bringing a little of the Texan flavor to the Midwest.

Myers Briggs: ESTJ - a pretty textbook case, if I may say so.

1. Context - History and Wikipedia nut.
2. Competitive - Probably what drives me to sales. Performance is a degree of how you measure against others.
3. Focus - Finish what I start
4. Deliberative - I like to plan, and plan my plans.
5. Maximizer - Like to use my strengths particularly and engaging newcomers.

A little bit of a workaholic right now. Political philosophy/science nerd (that's what my degree is in), sales guy extraordinaire. Lindy hopper (swing dance), probably spent most of my free time listening to swing music, watching lindy videos, and scaring my dog with my dancing. Technology "enthusiast," in my case it's a hobby and a job. Kinda geeky. Okay, more than kinda. Gamer. Conservative, buttoned up guy who is somewhat curiously attracted to free-spirited liberal types. Very ambitious, working my way up in the world now from both a business and a personal perspective. Want to come along for the ride?

Also I have a very sweet little dog, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Lily. She's great. Very shy, loves to spend time in her crate.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, three things:
1. Work - sales, really like it, really trying to make it
2. Fitness - I've lost 90 lbs in the past year or so and have been big into exercise since. I'm working towards gaining muscle now after losing for so long and maintaining low body-fat.
3. I love to swing dance. Lindy hop, charleston, etc. I dance at our weekly spot in Columbus, NYOH's Buckeye Bar on Wednesdays and travel all over the country to dance. It's great fun. Regardless of dating, I'd be happy to introduce of you to the swing dancing community here in town.

Six things I could never do without
- Road Trips. Oh how I love them. Sometimes, if I have a lot of time or a full mind I will drive aimlessly through the Hill Country. Pretty relaxing
-Football, particularly University of Houston Football
-Drawing. I've been drawing since I was a kid and it relaxes me and gives my mind something to do.
-Wikipedia. I'm kind of a trivia nut.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Lindy Hop
-Men's Clothing (i'm very interested in bespoke clothing, have a couple suits/shirts custom made and am always looking at having more made)
On a typical Friday night I am
Out of town swing dancing OR just chilling out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once set off the fire alarm for my apartment building back when I lived in Boston. The entire building had to be evacuated, many of which were also my coworkers at the time. I never lived it down.
You should message me if
You'd like to go dancing
Just want to hang out. Play with my dog. Have a cigar maybe.
