Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there. I've called SF and the Bay Area my home for almost 15
years now, and while I occasionally get the urge to pack up and
move to New Zealand, I can't imagine living in a place more
conducive to cultural diversity, outdoor adventure, and food
trucks. I believe in Public Health. I always root for the little
guy. I drink my coffee black. I love the sound of an acoustic
guitar. I like to run long distances. I generally eat healthily but
you will never, ever see me refuse pizza, a bacon cheeseburger, or
a donut. Ever. Especially if it's a Bob's donut.
Random fact: I once played lead guitar for a 80s/90s cover band
called "At least eat the meat" in grad school. We were asked to
play at a graduation party one year at a professor's house in the
Berkeley hills and we were so loud, the cops showed up. It was my
first, and most likely my last, taste of what it's probably like to
be a rockstar.
I'm looking for a fun, adventurous, kind-hearted girl with a
penchant for occasional mischief. A girl who has a good sense of
herself and knows what she wants in life. A girl who appreciates
the outdoors and doesn't mind the lack of facilities for a few
days. A girl who loves children. And food. And music. And if you
can sing, I desperately need a voice to complement my guitar.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
During the week, I deal with regulators at a medical device
company. On the weekends, I'm usually out running aimlessly for
long distances or hiking the local trails or backpacking the
Sierra. Planning my next big trip to Patagonia or Alaska.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Doing the Charleston. Making paella. Identifying 80s songs in the

As a kid growing up in the 80s, my favorite TV show was CHiPs and
Ponch was my hero. I used to ride around my neighborhood on my
Huffy wearing a cheap plastic Dodgers helmet and a band major's
baton slung through a belt loop of my OP shorts. Sometimes I also
had a mini tape player clipped to my belt that played the CHiPs
