My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a glass-half-full kind of girl. I'm eternally curious. I prefer people who are very comfortable in their own skin and roll easily with the punches. I don't like hypercritical people. 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)). If someone had told me 10 yrs. ago that I would go on a hiking vacation, I would have thought s/he was nuts. I'm planning the next big trip ... maybe Iceland, Alaska, or Scotland/Ireland.

I like geeks (a lot) and thought-provoking forms of artistic expression. I prefer sci-fi or fiction with a technology or science bent. I need quiet time to recharge, but have more friends than I can keep up with. I love dancing and am open on music.

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 not in a rush.
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 try to keep all my relationships in good order, so that they know how much they mean to me. 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'm focused on health tech or tech for my next adventure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- brainstorming for solutions; seeing patterns
- making new people I meet feel comfortable
- seeing other peoples' point of view
- trying new things
- counseling friends and tailoring the advice to them

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
- mobile/internet
- the prospect of falling in love .... BEST drug EVER! And staying in a loving relationship.
..... 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.
- the next trip I want to take
- how to get into my next career
- how to talk people into hiring me for stuff I've never done before
- How to better design things
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, for example, waiting for tea ...
