My self-summary
My professional life combines my great loves of dance, Spanish language and culture, and psychology. This balance of the physical/visceral/creative and stationary/intellectual suits me.

I have the greatest friends and family ever: fun, incredibly supportive, fascinating, driven, self-aware smarty-pants. For me, a loving relationship would augment an already full and happy life. I’m independent, though very much an extravert.

I never shy away from open discussion of an intellectual, personal, or political bent. Small talk has its place on a first date, but I like to move past that sooner rather than later. Social justice and gender equality matter to me a great deal and I value empathy, fairness, sincerity, and communication skills in a partner (don't worry, I give the same in return).

I enjoy good food and drink as much as the next girl, but especially while the weather is tolerable, I'm optimizing my free time: performances, bike rides, lectures, hikes, exhibits, film festivals, getting out of the city, etc. I'm looking for an adventure buddy.

I'm Spanish-English bilingual and need more Spanish-speakers in my life, dates and friends alike!

Meyers-Briggs ESFJ, for what it's worth.
I’m really good at
grammar; listening; breaking it down on the dance floor.
The first things people usually notice about me
My crazy blond mane
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Impossible/too daunting to choose.
Movies: La Dolce Vita, Chinatown, Donnie Darko, Strictly Ballroom, Cabaret, The Lives of Others, Wet Hot American Summer, everything Pedro Almodovar ever made.
Shows: Twin Peaks. And I'm in deep with Boardwalk Empire at the moment.
Music: I listen to a lot of different music but favorites include Madeleine Peyroux, D'Angelo, Fiona Apple, Django Reinhardt, the Punch Brothers, Aventura, and recently...vintage LLCool J.
Food: I'm a pretty adventurous eater. Ethiopian, Indian, and Spanish food have a special place in my heart (stomach).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book, srsly; just ask.
