I have been all over this country growing up; born in Pittsburgh, I've lived in Phoenix, Houston, Atlanta, Annapolis, Florida, Corpus Christi, and DC. Each place has left an imprint on me in its own unique way yet no single location really defines who I am. I find myself very comfortable with the fast-pace of the northeast, but that also doesn't mean there aren't days I'm ready to head down south for sweet tea and fried chicken or back out west for a desert night.
I am passionate and driven about my career and am proud of my background and upbringing. I've had a myriad of experiences straight out of a childhood fantasy, from interning for NASA to serving this great nation as a Navy fighter pilot. However, through my successes have also come humbling experiences along the way and I do my best to never take a single day for granted because it may never come again!
I value my friendships and relationships; each of them knows I would bend over backwards to help them in any situation and I know I can count on them for the same. I am looking for someone that I not only share a relationship with, but someone I also share a true friendship with. I'm looking for someone that wants to know about my life and be a part of it, someone that wants to get to know my friends and vice versa and for a woman that knows what she wants, has the drive and motivation to succeed, and isn't afraid to speak her mind when the time is right.
Washington, DC is a fantastic area to stay active in. To me, an ideal date can encompass any sort of activity. I love staying active through long-distance running and crossfit, watching professional sports (football, hockey, baseball), college football, and attending games or concerts when I can. On the flip side, I value balance and cultural diversity and would be lying if I didn't say I enjoy the occasional Broadway performance or museum tour. I am always up for new experiences, especially those that result in a spontaneous road-trip!
