My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not an A-lister and OKC seems to only send me a few of the 'like' or 4/5 star emails, so please just email, if you want to explore a connection.

I'm a glass-half-full kind of girl. I'm eternally curious and prefer the same in a partner; although it is more interesting, if he is interested in different things and can teach me about them. I prefer people, who roll easily with the punches, can laugh at themselves & are considerate of others. I love chivalry and old-world manners. I abhor drama in my personal life, but love complexity in my food/wine/scotch/entertainment/work. I love the Monty Python type of humor.

I will definitely make calories available for trying new foods/drinks everywhere I travel. I exercise, so that I can indulge. I've visited lot of places, (30+ countries) and try a new one each year. I like to balance outdoor activities with food/drink/urban explorations. I would love to share my passion for travel/food/skiing with my significant other. I went hiking on my last short vacation (5 days in Zion/Bryce/Cedar Breaks/Vegas (but only because I had to fly through Vegas)). I find the outdoors to be increasingly rejuvenating, as I age. I'm planning the next big trip ... maybe Iceland, Alaska, or Scotland/Ireland. I'm more of a day hike (<18 mi) than a backpacking type. I hope to take my nieces anywhere they want to go, after they turn 13.

I like thought-provoking forms of artistic expression. I prefer sci-fi or fiction with a technology or science bent, sometimes supernatural. I need quiet time to recharge, but have more friends/family globally than I can keep up with. I love dancing, salsa and the jumping up and down kind.

I try to live like the song, "I Hope You Dance" and the poem Instantes, except for the religious parts.

As much as I would love to meet the one I'm going to spend the rest of my life with, I am happy to have fun and see where it goes. I'm open to being a step-mom, mom, or not. I love children and am learning not to spoil my nieces.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love to learn, but like to be entertained while I'm doing so. I like designing more than implementing, so I am wondering when I am going to get off my bum and build this sculpture I have designed in my head. I've gotten as far as going on the TechShop tour in Menlo Park. Amazing place.

I like solving dramatically different business problems on a frequent basis, or I get bored. I have been lucky in convincing people to hire me for things I haven't quite done in the past. These are in general business areas (marketing, prod mgmt, finance, supply chain, ops), so I cannot cause any serious damage, if I screw up. I like building good teams that also become extremely close. I'm focused on health tech or tech for my next industry. These days, my volunteer activities involve increasing quality and access of healthcare to the under-served.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- brainstorming for solutions, seeing patterns, executing ... people (just checking to see if you are reading ... )
- making new people I meet feel comfortable
- staying upbeat despite what life throws at me, which isn't difficult, since I really only have 1st world problems
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Don't know ... an easy smile or maybe dimples? People have said that I'm easy to talk to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- love of family/friends
- a large variety of great food/drinks
- intellectual stimulation and the capacity to learn, while being relatively pain free
- the means to do those things I enjoy, including a current passport and physical ability
- mobile/internet
- the prospect of falling in love and staying in a loving relationship (think The Notebook) .... BEST drug EVER!!!!
..... Hmmm ... I cheated a bit
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- how my nieces will shape up as they grow
- the next trip I want to take
- how to get people to hire me for stuff I've never done before
- how to better design things
- how with such wealth and knowledge in the world today, we can't solve some of society's biggest problems (and which charities to support this year)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
not sure if there is a typical Friday ... out with friends or winding down from the work week at home or going to a meetup, if I want new conversations (I mostly go to the one for indie films.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I watch animated films without my nieces. I love seeing old couples holding hands. I can't help watching Notting Hill every time it is on.

I have answered a zillion OKC questions, which is part of my self-discovery and to pass time quicker, while waiting in line.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- think we might have interesting conversations and outings,
- don't smoke cigarettes,
- are not legally married, are divorced/widowed, are a straight male (you'd be surprised at what I've been told passes for "single" in some men's minds),
- are living most of the year somewhere in SF or on the peninsula ... points along 85 are fine, too (I commute for work and really don't want to do it in my personal life),
- have used a passport in the past couple of years for fun,
- like the idea of walking for miles,
- are not poly-amorous

Polyglots and polymaths welcome :-)

Wishing happiness and love to all!

P.S. bonus points, if I have to look up a word in your profile.
