My self-summary
Oh hey there! Let's go ahead and get each other off of this site - cool?

Originally from the DC area, I've been back for a few years after four great years in Austin. I moved back for my job and really miss my group of friends down south, but it's really great being back near my family. I end up visiting Austin a couple/few times a year, and always for the Austin City Limits Festival each fall...you know, if you ever want to come with (I know the best tacos).

Like a lot of people in the DC area, I'm fortunately/unfortunately pretty into my career - mine being that of an Architect in the DC office of a huge, global design firm. There can be some crazy hours when deadlines are near, but there's nothing cooler than thinking five steps ahead and having details work out just as I planned, or having ideas in my head that become physical spaces I get to experience in real life. I'm a nerd like that.

My career has traditionally been my #1 focus, but a recent serious health scare with my dad (he's good now) created the understandable evaluation and adjustment of priorities. I'm definitely looking to spend a little more time on things that don't result in a new building, with dating being one of those things. And that's where you come in! (hey, girl...)

What am I seeking? For starters, I hate how hard people in this city try to appear unavailable - I'm not into those games, or any games for that matter. I'd prefer to get to know someone across a few dates in lieu of a pressure-packed first date where we check-off boxes on our "future spouse" spreadsheets. Basically, I just want to meet someone cool, go with the flow, let our best qualities be revealed over time, and if something serious develops, awesome. If not, being friends is not a bad thing.

Who am I seeking? Great smile, great sense of humor, capable of sarcastic faux-conversations, comfortable in her own skin, patient, family-oriented, and cool with a dog being part of the package - especially given that Brooks will inevitably steal your socks. I've always been fairly athletic, so someone who stays active is a plus. If you're willing to support the Virginia Tech Hokies with me as your second-favorite, you get major bonus points. If you're willing to throw on a Liverpool jersey and watch soccer, well...now you're just showing off.

If anything stands out, say hey. If not, good luck in your search!
What I’m doing with my life
Drawing pretty pictures and knowing all my shapes as an architect. It's a super complicated job, but there's nothing in the world like physically experiencing spaces and places that previously existed only as ideas in my head. In other news, I'm a nerd.

I'm also really, really, really into golfing, which is my favorite thing. I'm also considering going after my private pilot's license soon!

On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm being honest, the work week usually has me worn out by Friday evening, so typically I prefer something low-key. Netflix & Chill jokes aside, making dinner and unwinding with a spectacular lady is my Friday evening of choice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a Christmas baby. And I walk on water.
