ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I've been in the DC area for about five years after moving from California, but grew up overseas. I love traveling and hope to live abroad again some day. I'm open-minded, progressive, and easy going, but enjoy a good debate. I have a career that I love and though the hours can be long and the traveling spontaneous, it brings an incredible sense of contribution.

I like to listen, I like to talk, I like reading, music, cooking, wine, learning and living cultures, films, eating out, working out, running, backpacking, people-watching, casting sideways glances, penguins, non sequiturs, lists of interests separated by commas, and ending sentences with prepositions. I am intolerant of people who are intolerant, or who misuse homonyms. On the weekends I equally look forward to a fancy night out, dive bar, lazy day in, or a 30 mile bike ride. There is an empirically proven direct correlation between my watching the Travel Channel and the propensity of the phrase: "Oh my God, we're totally doing that." Logistics notwithstanding.

My friends would most likely describe me as having a refreshing bouquet, full-bodied on the palate with hints of dark cherries, treacle, chocolate, and minerals. Best enjoyed now or aged 1-4 years. Wait, no. My friends would most likely describe me as "That f-ing guy."

As much as I enjoy what I do for a living and where I'm going, I've found I have a much more profound sense of fulfillment when I have that other half and a meaningful relationship. That's not a process you can rush though, so I'd like to get to know someone to see if that chemistry is there.

I'm actually a fan of the whole online dating thing. It's difficult to meet new people, and I think this is one of the few venues where I can potentially find chemistry that isn't complicated by work, making things awkward with mutual friends, or as time-consuming as going back to college. That being said, this is the perfect place to start a conversation, especially and about marsupials for instance, but ultimately we're not going to really get to know each other until that first cup of coffee.

For fun:

I'm kind of a foodie, and if it wasn't prohibitively expensive I would eat at a spiffy new restaurant every night. Somehow I rationalize a 3 course meal and a bottle of wine better than an extra student loan payment. Probably why I'm learning to cook

Favorite hot spots:

Favorite places that I've lived or traveled: Thailand, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Italy, England, Holland. There's still a lot left to see and do!

Favorite things:

Right now my Spotify is looped to Sean Parker's "Hipster International." I hate hipsters, but love their music. Before it was cool. I'm honestly not sure if I'm being ironic or not. Also love anything on the history/travel/discovery/food networks.

Last read:

Recently finished Michio Kaku's"Parallel Worlds" (theoretical quantum physics FTW).Nasiri's "Inside the Jihad", Ehrman's "Jesus, Interrupted", and Barash's "Natural Selections." Right now I'm reading "Blood, Bones, Butter" by Gabrielle Hamilton
