Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a deep thinker, ambitious and creative. I value experiences
over material things and I've collected some amazing ones. I'm
usually attracted to the types that want to leave this world a
little better than they found it. I think you'll find I'm pretty
different from the many "tech bros" lurking around the Bay
True to the profile name, I'm also a traveler. I've lived all over
the United States (and several other countries) and have been lucky
enough to travel around the world (I have an album with a few
travel photos on the OKC website if you're interested). Always like
discussing social issues/theory. Love that shit so much I have a
Masters in International Studies haha.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Constantly learning, experiencing and evolving...
At this moment I'm the director of a language school in SF that
delivers awesome, immersive language programs. Me encantaria
encontrar algunas personas hablar en Español conmigo!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm pretty damn good at trivia and I will beat you at bocce ball.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I dunno, I'm sitting over here and you're over there. You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I LOVE music. I play guitar and I'm one of those people who has a
soundtrack to their life... I have too many favorites to list here
but I mostly like the old stuff: classic rock, jazz, blues, folk,
old school reggae. I also love 90's rock, acoustic singer/song
writer stuff and some hip hop.
Food, yumm. I worked as a cook in a few nice restaurants during my
undergrad years (and for a while after) and I'm definitely not a
picky eater. That being said, I believe diet is important and I'm
conscious about what I put into my body.
Books: I'm always reading. Big on social theory and I can talk
about it for hours (Foucault, Gramsci, Marx, William Robinson,
Harvey, Bourdieu are a few faves). On the fiction side I get down
with some nerdy sci-fi and fantasy. You know, LOTR, Ender's Game,
Dune, A Song of Ice and Fire.
I love movies, mostly historical drama/fiction, sci-fi, action, and
Eh, not so big on TV... When I do watch it's usually HBO or sports.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Of course friends and family are at the top but otherwise:
1. Sufficient sleep. Seriously, I need at least 8 hours or I'm
liable to make the Grinch look charming.
2. Good cooking
3. Sex. I actually considered quoting Marvin Gaye's "Sexual
Healing" right here haha.
4. My passport
6. Social theory/philosophy (nerd alert)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I want to go hiking, what I'm cooking for dinner, what song I
want to learn, why the Red Sox offense is sucking this year, how
amazing it is that the Celtics made the playoffs, additions to my
at-home gym, what concert I wanna see next, Game of
On the more serious side: the inner-logic of (transnational)
capitalism; the intersections between gender, race and class and
how they shape our world; climate change and its effects. You know,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sitting on my deck with wine in hand, cooking a great meal or
headed out with a few friends...
