Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So I let my sister see my profile. She says, "Just say, 'I'll cook
for you.'" There ya have it.
I'm happiest on tropical islands. I get restless lying on the
beach, but I love swimming
in warm oceans, hiking
foliage, and scuba diving
When I can't run away, I tend my garden, cook, mix cocktails, dance
explore the bay. Or, sometimes I like to sit and talk for hours,
preferably in front of a pot of tea
or a glass of scotch
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Celebrating the fact that I just cut my commute from 50 to 15
minutes and earned a view of the bridge. Jumping off bridges in the
rain into the river in downtown Zürich. Trying to guess at the
drama happening 2 tables down. Dancing. Enjoying what's here.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Making salads. Seriously!
- Solving problems, figuring stuff out, and explaining it.
- Growing vines from cuttings.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, I hope. I've been told they're big, and people seem to
think I'm staring at something when I'm just lost in thought
looking at nothing in particular. Or maybe my large Italian nose.

I spent the last few years chasing Michael
Bauer around San Francisco. Now I'm trying to recreate some of that
in the kitchen. I've been working on Japanese cuisine: making
from scratch (okay, I bought the noodles) was the
recent highlight, although usually I go for Spanish, Italian,
Mexican or Thai.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Venezuelan Rum
- Irish Breakfast Tea
- Thai Chili Peppers
- Alameda Gin
- California Raspberries
- Ribeye Steak
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Flavor profiles of new cocktails
- Whether my cappuccinos will ever be as good as my sours
- How much fun it would be to have my own personal military tank.
Everyone tells me this is impractical. They're probably
and the gross disparity I've seen, often outside my
doorstep, but most saliently during a few days in Cambodia.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out dancing or at a bar, or at a dinner party, or at home cooking
and shaking up egg whites or fruit with gin
and the latest bitters in my collection,
or racing up to Tahoe
for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Gluten hates me. Seriously.
