ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

So I was actually born in DC, grew up in Arlington, and recently returned to the US after working overseas for the past six years.

Some random facts: I once barricaded a home intruder in a bathroom until the police arrived. I rescued a Finnish diplomat from car trouble in Pakistan. She kindly gave me reindeer meat to say thanks. And as a teenager, I got dragged into a lawsuit by an over-zealous candy company. I'm also an internationally certified sailboat captain.

I spent most of my overseas time in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Thailand, and Zimbabwe. Also lived in Switzerland and just finished getting my masters in London.

Now I'm living and working on Capitol Hill in non-profit land. I love photography, politics, the news, good food -- oh and wit and sarcasm. And I'm known to tell good stories that may end up not having a point. I can be ridiculous and try to convince someone of something entirely untrue to see how far they'll believe me, and I can also be rather deep and serious.

I am somewhat of a jack-of-all trades and master of none, and I can be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my work. In the past decade or so, I've done a variety of things including fundraising, foreign policy wonk, overseas aid worker, writing, media and public relations, photographer, and web and graphic designer. I have a nerdy technical side that loves the nuance of things like international law, and I have an artistic side that loves design and photography.

So I think life is about living without regrets... And yet sometimes the best choice at the time doesn't always feel that way later, but maybe that's life. For example, I succumbed to peer pressure and jumped into a Finnish ice hole. To say it was cold would be a gross understatement. Secondly, I majored in music recording in college because it was fun and I liked the idea of hanging out with bands and recording their album instead of writing papers. Yet I now write for a living.

I've found that I learn best by teaching myself and by doing, but I'm also an avid reader of news and smart online things (like Foreign Policy magazine or The Atlantic). And I can't say I read many books and the majority of books I own I haven't read, but they look pretty on my bookshelf. And I equally enjoy going out and doing interesting things or staying in to do a Saturday Netflix binge. (Presently waiting for Season 2 of House of Cards.)

I am a self-avowed adrenaline-junkie which is why I thoroughly enjoyed my time working in warzones. But I also don't believe in taking stupid risks because I kinda like my life. Case in point, I can count on one hand the number of times I rode on the back of a motorcycle taxi while living in southeast Asia. As one friend described them: low risk, high impact.

So who I am looking to meet? Well, I'm probably a romantic and I'm definitely looking for that spark. Maybe chemistry can grow over time, but that seems rather boring to me. I believe that men and women should be equal in relationships, but that guys should also be gentlemen. And ultimately, someone who knows herself well, values kindness, enjoys some witty banter, has a creative side, and thinks life is better when laughing.
