I'm an outgoing guy, genuine, affectionate, intelligent and very good at conversation. I like discovering new music, hiking, cooking, watching movies, politics, Curb Your Enthusiasm (if you get that kind of humor you're awesome), writing and just talking and getting to know people. I'm entranced by the smell of leaves in autumn and I love the relaxed comfort of Old Town. I'm very self-motivated, have a deep sense of loyalty to my friends and family and sometimes like to just wonder at the wonder of things. I've been down in the D.C. area for around four and a half years now and like it a lot--I'm planning on staying for a while. I work for an online media company and like to have as much fun as possible when I'm not working or traveling for work. I graduated last year from grad school with a degree in international affairs and am going to try and get a job that allows me to use that. I perform slam poetry. I'm getting into long-distance running. One of my favorite movies is "The Princess Bride," I make a mean scrambled eggs and a delicious grilled salmon. I've been told I'm a catch, so catch me.
