Move over, Clark Kent. Chad is another tale of two personas. By day, he's the logical, rational, serious researcher at the National Institutes of Health. By night, he's an outgoing, charming, social butterfly. A former college athlete more comfortable in gym shorts and sneakers, Chad likes to stay active by running and working out, and hopes to join one of the District's athletic teams. Although he'll occasionally frequent Town or Nellie's, this 23-year-old prefers one-on-one conversations over cocktails at quieter lounges like Number Nine. Potential suitors with a sense of humor and a positive attitude are welcome to apply.
What's on your nightstand?
My MacBook, a pile of unopened mail and a few books.
What's in your nightstand drawer?
I don't have a drawer. It's a $10 IKEA end table.

Where do you keep the condoms and lube?
Under my bathroom sink.
What are your television favorites?
Dexter, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and any show that has talent competitions.
What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
It's probably a tie between Batman and X-Men.
What superhero would you be?
I'd probably be Superman, because he can go incognito.
Who's your greatest influence?
Anybody who comes from nothing and builds themselves up to achieve greatness. I've earned everything I have, without help. I admire those who do the same, who are able to achieve in life.
What's your greatest fear?
Anybody who knows me would say it's spiders. That's an external fear. But, really, it's failure. That's what I'm really afraid of.
Pick three people, living or dead, who you think would make the most fascinating dinner guests imaginable.
