I am a Philly transplant who moved here after grad school for work a few years ago. I grew up in the DC/MD area and have been on the move ever since leaving home for college. Despite spending most of my adult life as a nomad, I've survived 5 years now in the city and finally feel like some roots are growing. I really enjoy all the things this town has to offer and hope to make things a bit more permanent (ideally of the home-owning variety, not like the serving prison-type). But who knows where life takes you.
I'd like to think of myself as a laid-back individual who gets along with most everyone. I try to stay balanced through life's up and downs and believe that most people are inherently good if you give them a chance. But then again, I was recently mugged and have started thinking that I might be partially self-delusional.
I really appreciate anything artistic, mainly because I lack any talent myself. I try to play the cello and guitar when I can, but these days I find it tough to fully commit enough time for any musical improvement. So I try to live the rockstar life vicariously by attending as many concerts and shows as possible. Some memorable shows I saw in the past year were Jeff Mangum, Radical Face, Bowerbirds, and The Walkmen. Occasionallly, I'll guest DJ a local radio show, so if you have a killer record collection, we can definitely be friends. The rest of my free time I usually spend with my drinking team that has a hockey problem, catching up with current events and shows like Portlandia, or cooking when it is not hazardous to my health.
I am searching for someone with the right combination of intelligence, witty humor, and a willingness to be fun and silly. Someone honest to themselves and to others. Someone who can share their opinions and interests, but also be open to discovering new ones. Anyone who listens to indie rock, likes spicy food, or has an appreciation for banana splits would be a bonus.
I travel often for work and can be on the move quite a bit. If you think you can keep up with me, please drop me a line. If not, I'm also looking for a cat sitter.
