ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Friends would describe me as smart, curious, witty, and loyal. I love making people laugh and my sense of humor tends to be dry and very much in the vein of Hansel’s interview from the opening of Zoolander (it’s a tough call, but my humility is probably the greatest of all my wonderful attributes....). My family is genuinely proud of me, not because of what I’ve accomplished, but because of the man I am. This means the world to me. I care deeply about those who matter to me and, though some people might not believe it, I’m genuinely a big softie and romantic at heart.

I’m a Foreign Service Officer between assignments right now and just moved back into the area. I love having a job that pays me to see the world, but it would be more fun with someone wonderful by my side. I long ago learned that time is precious and career will only get you so far, so I hope to meet someone who will make the great thing I’ve got going even better. I like my job, but I could also give it up to focus on a charcuterie business I’ve been working on. For me, the future is wide open and filled with options.

I love to cook because it’s such a tangible way to show you care about someone. To take the raw and transform it into something life-sustaining is deeply meaningful to me. The most fundamental of all human things, I think. I’d love to have a big farm house with an old beam table in it and see my friends and family line the sides. Because so many of us work abroad, I rarely see them all and getting everyone together would be fantastic. I value traditional methods and love that people are keeping them alive. I like restored houses, shining my own shoes, owning and wearing a tuxedo, having a go-to person for things, and generally living in a grounded and respectful way. I’m hipster-conflicted (vice a conflicted hipster). I could not care less about the Kardashians and, like Ozzy, still haven’t wrapped my head around “what’s a Bieber?”

I love music and wish I were more talented at playing it than I am. I grew up playing the piano and recently learning some old jazz pieces. I’m learning the guitar as well, though that’s a definite work in progress. My cello is now more beautiful than functional since, honestly, Yo Yo Ma fears a disturbance in the force every time I pick up the bow. My cello deserves better than that, so does Mr. Ma.

I am a big sports fan, but I don’t need to spend my weekends watching television. I like going to games and enjoy the atmosphere especially when it draws people from all walks of life together. Growing up in central New York, I’m an SU basketball fan and a big DC United and US soccer fan. I played hockey while younger and still think it’s one of the greatest games on earth.

Since it’s DC, I mention politics. I got into international affairs because I don’t like the contentiousness of domestic politics. I’m fiscally conservative and socially liberal. I’m not necessarily for big government, but I’m for fair government. If someone believes the government shouldn’t sanction gay marriage, it probably shouldn’t sanction heterosexual marriage either. I don’t believe health is a commodity nor should it be treated as one. I’m not in the one percent in the U.S., but globally speaking I’m damn lucky and I know it. If given a lot, give back and don’t judge those about whom you don’t know very much. (Okay, political views done....whew!)

Last read:
