Well hello there. My name is Alan and I moved out to the Los Angeles area in late August to work on a couple of political campaigns and look for work in the non-profit/government world. I just started a new job in downtown Los Angeles for a non-profit in mid-January and I am loving every second of it despite the commute. I grew up in the Washington D.C. area and went to UNC-Greensboro (yes I do have some southern charm and hospitality in me) and obtained my Bachelor's degree in Political Science and Sociology. I was originally going to join the military as an intelligence officer, but a freak accident involving a rip tide/under toe in the Pacific Ocean squashed that idea. I can't really complain, because again I ended up finding a job that I love. I am close to my family, though we don't get along all the time, but then again what family doesn't have their bickering. Once everything starts calming down with work and I get completely settled, I want to start traveling out of the country and one of the first places I want to go is Italy and go all along the Mediterranean Sea. I am very ambitious and career driven, but that doesn't mean I don't have time for that special someone, it just makes it a little harder to find her. My friends would say I am extremely loyal, funny, a great listener, fun, and just a flat out great guy.
It's hard to describe what I'm looking for, but on a broad scale...someone who is smart and can carry an intellectual conversation, but be silly on the drop of a dime, someone who can make me laugh, relax and be myself, loves going to concerts/sporting events, wants to travel and see the country and world, someone who is willing to try new things at least once, someone who just enjoys life and can have a great time.
If you are really wanting to find someone who is caring, loving, will be there for you through the thick and thin, and not run at the first sign of trouble, shoot me a message or e-mail. I am willing to be an open book if given the opportunity, and I may surprise you in the best way possible.
