I am moving to DC in early June, looking forward to meeting some interesting people! :-)
Someone who cares about making the world better and that enjoys exploring other cultures, and learning new things every day.
I work in technology consulting and have been enjoying my work so far. However I find the need to have a balance to be important, so I make my best effort to balance work and play.
My sense of humor is just plain mean, I love to make fun of others. Just don't take it too seriously and you will have a great time with me, whilst we make fun of everybody else in the room :-)
Traveling is a great pastime, I have been to a few countries in Asia and Europe, as well as Latin America. When I travel I enjoy going to old houses, historical settings and museums. If you want to hang out with me, you have to love museums. Not that that is the only thing that I like, I like good vistas and trying different things when I travel.
On the sports area, I like it, but mostly as a challenge to myself. I play tennis, but I don't care about Nadal or Federer, I care about how I play :-P Extreme Sports fanaticism I feel is a waste of time. The only exception to this personal rule is when one country plays another in soccer, I find that interesting for some reason. Perhaps its the national pride feeling that goes along with supporting your country. Don't get me wrong I wont' be against watching the Superbowl on TV, but I will definitely not watch football every weekend. I also enjoy running.
I like people with character, who have a drive to get ahead in life. However so many times we only care about ourselves and forget the rest of the world, I believe that I will only be successful if I can help others and make the world better in the process. I also care deeply about Politics, I think it's unfortunate that it has lost the prestige that it had decades ago.
I want someone with whom I can have intelligent and funny conversations.
