My self-summary
The basics: i am an introverted extrovert that trends active, adventurous and always on the go. Originally from Florida. After an internship overseas, I landed in DC. Seventeen years later, I think it is safe to say this is home base.

I have a job I love. I work in international development and I am one lucky duck to get to travel all over the place. It's a great career but I am ready to slow the travel thing down and share life's adventures with someone.

I am fairly athletic - part time runner on treadmills in terrible hotels, mediocre crossfitter, newbie rock climber. I try to do some sort of physical activity most days.

I am an eternal optimist and value authenticity. Be yourself and I am sure we will get along.
What I’m doing with my life
trying to save the world, one politically challenged country at a time.
I’m really good at
--counting to 10 in about 10 different languages.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have some sass. Not too little, not too much: just right.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Prayer for Owen Meany, Catch-22, The Alchemist, The Power of One...paper > e-reader.

Movies: Anything by John Hughes, anything with John Cusack. Most recently: whatever is on the in-flight entertainment system.

Shows: whatever is in my netflix or hulu queue.

On constant musical rotation: the cure, depeche mode, morrissey, the smiths, radiohead, muse, silversun pickups, delerium, interpol, the xx, two door cinema club, churches, gaslight anthem, NIN...I have a soft spot for gothy/industrial, 80s pop, and indie rock. working in a record store for years can do that to a person....

Food: all.the.things. especially if it is a lazy meal with good conversation.
The six things I could never do without
my family, my passport, my friends, my active lifestyle, music, coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what i should/could be doing vs what i am doing...

working from home has led me to start plotting a fair number of home improvement projects...
On a typical Friday night I am
having a good meal with friends; seeing a band play somewhere around town; getting a good night's rest knowing there is no alarm set for saturday...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
--occasionally I eat almond butter straight out of the jar. ok ok, more than just occasionally.
You should message me if
--you think we have mutual interests and we fit what each other is looking for.
--you are interested in being more than just pen pals. i am looking for something that will eventually develop into something real and substantial. You should be too. Even if we are on a slow boat there.
--you believe in buying the full-length record, not just a single.
