Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
True to the profile name, I'm 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'm a deep thinker, ambitious, creative and empathetic. 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
"Not all those who wander are lost"
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...
I'm the director of a language school in SF that delivers awesome,
immersive language programs. I finished my Masters in International
Studies in early 2014 and a PhD program is most likely on the
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 signer/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. I have a long list of favorite thinkers if
you're actually interested. 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 (Game of Thrones).
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, how good the Red Sox offense is gonna be 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; how to create powerful, genuine social
movements in the 21st century... you know, the usual.
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...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair is going prematurely grey... Yup, a little "Just for Men"
might be in my near future haha. No play for Mr. Grey? Hey, at
least I'm not going bald.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're open-minded, active, have knowledge of the world outside the
United States, appreciate the outdoors, creativity and keeping a
positive mindset. Having a genuine passion for something is
incredibly attractive and major bonus points if you want to speak
or learn Spanish with me.
