Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a passionate optimist who gets to live my values by running a
non-profit teaching civil society in the countries of the former
Soviet Union. I have learned Russian (enough to be dangerous), and

the next stage of my life adventure.

I'll eat Italian food any time. I appreciate restaurants with
locally sourced foods and a menu that reflects the seasons. I have
a real weakness for The Princess Bride. I enjoy action adventure
movies, science fiction, indie and documentary films.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
