Most people would be surprised to know that I… wake up at 2:30am Monday-Friday and don’t drink coffee.

I’m looking for ___________ in a significant other: Positivity and caring for others.

The perfect date for me includes: Great conversation that includes lots of laughs. It can be anywhere. It’s not about the place. It’s about the company.

The most embarrassing thing I’ve ever done on a date: Tell the same story twice on the same date.

Best place to go on a first date in Columbus: Mickey’s Bar for karaoke

Best place to go for drinks in Columbus: Novak’s or Byrne’s Pub

Words to live by: “Hakuna Matata”

If someone were to ask you what the “pulse” of Columbus is, what would you tell them? Originality, inclusivity, passion and kindness.
