I'm friendly, adventurous, out-spoken, honest and can be found both analyzing public policy and quoting Will Ferrell. If you agree there is a difference between confidence and arrogance and presence/lack thereof for either are deal breakers, there's a good chance we'll get along.
In the past decade, I've lived in Hong Kong, conducted research in South Korea and Peru, and traveled to about 40 countries. There is no place I'm not interested in visiting at least once...and many places to revisit!
I enjoy people who are kind, intelligent and who have a sense of humor, not least of which about themselves. Similar backgrounds are not as important as being able to share a laugh and, of course, chemistry. It'd be awesome if you also liked to travel, because I enjoy having a partner in crime.
Courage, honesty, compassion and strength (physical and emotional) are traits I strive to maintain and definitely want in a partner.
If you're still reading, shoot me an email. If you ask me to meet for a coffee, I'm usually down. So long as by coffee, you mean beer.
