My self-summary
Originally from the DC area but back after four great years in Austin, I'm slowly but surely readjusting to the east coast. I'm a pretty driven person, so most of my time back here has been spent making the magic happen on my current project at work. Between that and most of my VA friends being married with kids, here I am.

So far, the DC area seems full of people who try too hard to appear unavailable and race to be the first to lose interest, and I'm into neither of those things. I'd prefer to get to know someone across a few dates as organically as possible in lieu of a pressure-packed first date audition where we check-off boxes on our "future spouse" spreadsheets. I think the truly great aspects of a person's personality take time to reveal themselves, so I like to go with the flow and take things as they come. That is, unless your eyebrows connect, in which case I'm totally unavailable and I just lost interest first.

All of the profiles on here seem to read the same after awhile, especially that part about how you like fun nights out but can also appreciate a good Netflix evening on the couch with a glass of wine. I'm guessing you probably feel the same way about all the bro-files you've read on here, so let's shake it up a bit - I am exactly the same as the generic American male except:

1. I'm a better communicator. While I consider myself an extroverted introvert, my communication is pretty open and honest (dare I say blunt?), and I think one text every-other day is weak.

2. I'm more level-headed. I'm human, but don't typically get too high or too low. And that huge call the ref just made against my team?... While the frat-tastic guys were busy screaming at the TV, I watched the replay and see the logic as to how the call was made.

3. I'm more thoughtful, in all senses of the word. My career involves thinking many steps ahead and figuring out complicated things, but I'm also pretty good at surprises.

As far as who I'm seeking, I'm not sure that I have a "type" really, although my current celebrity crush would be Aimee Garcia. Aimee, if you're reading this, send a message.

The ideal girl in my book is physically active, comfortable in her own skin, genuine, a good communicator, enjoys trips to interesting places (not just the beach), appreciates/has a quick wit, loves dogs, and can live with the fact that baby Brooks (my dog) will inevitably steal your socks. And bonus points if you're willing to wake up early on a weekend morning, throw on a Liverpool jersey, and fall back asleep while you "watch soccer" with me.

If anything in the above stream of consciousness stood out, I hope you'll get in touch. If not, I'll assume my preference for separate eyebrows was a deal-breaker.

** Disclaimer: I'm not a vegetarian, but I am an animal lover and find the picture of you posing with that dead, should-be-wild, or about-to-be-eaten animal to be a huge turnoff. Just saying.
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.

The Lab School of Washington

Typically I'd also say that I play a ton of soccer, but I have to get some torn cartilage repaired before I can play again. So until I get that fixed, I enjoy golfing, my dog Brooks, and am debating going for my private pilot's license.

On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a Christmas baby. And I walk on water.
