My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Living the dream in Fort Greene with a bi-eyed (it’s a real term) dog named Bowie, a stack of records, and a hipster-friendly backyard. And while I don't "identify" as a hipster I would be prepared to host them for a dinner party.

Otherwise I have a masters in lit & creative writing (that I don't use) but get paid to work at a non-profit performing arts center where I book a range of arty-fartsy and rocky-rolly stuff. I can expense concert tickets. I speak fluent English, present-tense Spanish, inappropriate German, and Italian restaurant. I've traveled abroad a lot. I insist on oxford commas and double space between sentences- a stance I will fight to death on. I miss LA and still kinda hate winter.

I celebrate sarcasm, embrace ADD, go to yoga when I can, meditate when I remember, talk about planning hiking & camping trips, and try to beach often. I’m trying to run & bike more. When inspired I’m an amateur cook & lapsed graduate student in nutritional science. I grow herbs & vegetables that my roommates and I forget to eat. I also occasionally make my own beer, bread, nutmilks (wow, I just typed "nutmilk") and really there's not much I won't juice at this point. I’ve looked into making cheese but won't pickle. Sorry. There needs to be some limits.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a year into a job I love (well like) but am always looking. Over-scheduling myself. Teaching my dog guitar. Randomly performing at friend's weddings. Going to concerts, shows, lectures, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making the greatest guacamole ever.
Brewing beer.
Setting up a campsites / building fires.
Shopping at farmers markets, while walking a dog and checking my phone simultaneously.
Having conversations about yoga.
Having sarcastic conversations about yoga.
Road tripping.
Eating tacos.
Cooking. (Okay, I'll own that. Yes, I'm a good cook.)
Telling you the booking fee of any music act you can think of.
Being patient with the big stuff and impatient with the little stuff.
Having those big serious life conversations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm low in fat and high in antioxidants.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Love in the Time of Cholera, Raymond Carver, Murakami, Kundera, Pema Chodron, later Kerouac, Kurt Vonnegut, WS Merwin, Neruda, Michael Pollan, 1491 and everything else. Been on a non-fiction/ science/nutrition/history kick for a while.... Looking to get back on the fiction train. Was into books on the Dutch history in New York and am transitioning into semi-trashy historical fiction about prehistoric man which I've found makes for great mindless pre-bed reading. Haven't missed a National Geographic in ten years.

Favorite movies/directors/actors: Wes Anderson, PT Anderson, Terrence Malick, Andy Kaufman, Michel Gondry, Ken Burns, The Big Lebowski, Will Farrell, Kids in the Hall, Any Kaufman, and a slew of documentaries, shorts, and other bizarre post-modern movies...

Music: I get paid to like everything but currently in rotation: Andrew Bird, Gillian Welch, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Fleet Foxes, LCD, The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, Magnetic Fields, Radiohead, Alt-J, Josh Ritter, Kygo, The Clash, Beirut, Lord Huron, Future Folk, The Avett Brothers, Blind Pilot, Crystal Fighters, Washed Out, DeVotchka, Robot Heart sets from Burning Man, The National, Oliver Mtukudzi, Pink Martini, Stan Getz, Keith Jarret, Louis Armstrong, Sufjan Stevens, Johny Cash, and A Tribute to the Legacy of 9 Time US Figure Skating Champion Michelle Kwan (our old band name in LA)... So everything, but I have trouble listening to modern Hip Hop and Country. I own about a thousand records and am currently collecting old soul and country. I been known to go to burning man a few times so I like me some dancey EDM stuff too.

Podcasts: this American life, radiolab, planet money, on being, the moth, little things matter, Ted talks, freakonomics, and Dan Savage. Was obsessed with Serial once.

Favorite Food: I like everything, especially Mexican, Sushi, Indian, Thai, raw/vegetarian, and smoothies- which are like a food... I just can't get into Ethiopian (tastes like a poor man's Indian to me) but I've only tried it twice...

TV: I don't really watch tv but I do stream stuff online. Otherwise I do like: Portlandia, The Daily Show, Colbert. (One day i hope to finally watch GOT, The Wire and finish BSG.) I'm open to the idea of having a "show" but need it to be good.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My record collection (started way before hipsterism)
National Geographic
All things NPR
Overly complicated camping gear
(And Bowie the Dog)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's the deal with pictures of girls with fancy fake mustaches? How'd that start? There must be some cultural moment that initiated that...

Okay I don't spend "a lot of time" on that subject but it's come up a few times in conversation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either sticking around the theater for a show or ducking out early for some socializing and then a dog walk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I just can't get into electric toothbrushes. Sorry. No one ever says "oh my god, my life was changed by my electric toothbrush!" They just suddenly get them. Going to need to see some hard science in order to discard the classic manual approach.

Oh and I don't make a million dollars nor do I have a desire to.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like a little crazy in your coffee, enjoy a good text message, don't take this too seriously and are open to meeting up. Or you can suggest good hiking spots nearby.
