Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been lucky enough to live (and visit) all over the world in
the last few years... I was born and raised in Iowa, lived in India
for 2 months, did some consulting all over the US, lived for a year
in Beijing (which I absolutely loved), for a year and a half I
lived in San Francisco, and most recently was back in Iowa
reconnecting with family. I love really experiencing a different
culture and understanding how they live... It's great. I've
recently come to the realization that I've never actually been to
the southern hemisphere. That seems like a grievous error... Are
you the one to join me on a South American adventure?
I love the performing arts, but my real passion is with music. I
don't really care what genre something is (on my iPhone I've lately
been listening to a weird mix of punk, anti-folk, and alternative).
Going to concerts in particular is excellent fun. Whether it's in a
huge arena listening to the Roots, or in a smokey bar listening to
some random acid jazz, I love it all. I've recently started taking
Bass lessons (on my hyper-sexy Fender Fretless Jazz Bass), and I'd
ultimately love to be in a band. Making the transition from
music-enthusiast to music-creator is turning out to be pretty much

fantastic, if I do say so myself. :-)

Asking what my favorite music is really depends on the day... Most
recently my favorite song has been Thea Gilmore's cover of "Ever
Fallen in Love". As far as genres go, I'm pretty much all over the
board. I've been listening to a weird mix of punk, anti-folk, and
(surprisingly, even for me) french-german electro-pop (Stereo Total
or most anything out of Ed Banger records). Rather than list
everything I like, just check out my last.fm page at
My favorite movie is The Sting (if you haven't seen it yet, just
stop reading this now and go watch it. You can thank me later). I
have a tendency to love pretty much every movie I see (even the
horrible ones are usually joke worthy). A side effect of this is

For books, my cultured response is Don Quixote. The truth is
something more like "The Worthing Saga", an epic sci-fi book
written by Orson Scott Card I first read about 15 years ago, and
re-read almost every year. I'm a bit of a ravenous reader; I get
sucked into a story and just can't put it down far too often.

* Bacon - I suppose I could live without it, but what kind of life
would that be?

I'm looking for somebody that is smart, witty, independent, and
personally successful (think 'loves what she does' more than 'is
paid a ton of money doing something she hates'). Somebody who is
completely adorkable (my new favorite word) and can have a great
time no matter where she is.
My life is going really well, but it needs somebody else to spend
