I enjoy spending time outside, with friends, being active. Some of my interests include:
Hobbies: biking, hiking, skating, skiing, boarding, snorkeling, frisbee golf, ping pong, croquet, badmitton, bocce, horseshoes, gardening, listening to music, camping, photography, playing Scrabble/Cribbage, reading, discussing social issues, volunteering
Music: Prince, Zepplin, Ozzy, Danzig, Curtis Mayfield, Nina Simone, Lenny Kravitz, Ben Harper, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Bobby Vinton, Hank/Hank Jr./Hank III, Willie Nelson, Alicia Keyes, Mingus, Beethoven, Mozart, Jill Scott, AC/DC, Grateful Dead...... essentially all genres, including, but not limited to: house, techno, jazz, rock, alternative, disco, classical, country, rap, pop
As far as my career aspirations, I would like to be involved in research that informs public policy. I'm interested in legislative advocacy and hope to teach at the university level.
I am a passionate person, professionally and personally. I have a sharp wit and find joy in the little things. I value hard work and appreciate the opportunities I have been given.
I'm looking for someone to share this wonderful life. I enjoy my life and career. But, from time to time, I pause and wish I had someone to share all of these wonderful experiences. I'm fully self-sufficient, my life is very fulfilling and I don't 'need' anyone, but, again, would like to be able to share with someone special.

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
On a first date, I would prefer an activity. I know stereotypically a date is dinner and a movie, but I never understood how people get to know each other sitting in the dark not speaking. I'd rather go for a round of frisbee golf or a hike and have some good conversation. If we clicked romantically great, if we didn't, at least we still had fun and took advantage of our awesome city.
