Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am outgoing and energetic, curious about life and people. I value
intelligence, grounded-ness, connection, creativity, courage and
enthusiasm. I seek companions on the journey who would not miss the
chance to explore and share their inner territory. I have a strong
ability to stay present with all life has to offer. I have an
enviable life, filled with kind and giving people, artistry,
intelligence, physical vitality, spiritual depth, and a rich
relationship with the natural world. I love good food and
silliness. While I have spent many years focused on the life of the
mind, and almost always love intellectual inquiry, my current edge
is to explore ways of knowing through the body, specifically
through the practices of Authentic Movement, Orgasmic Meditation,
and yoga. I am drawn to others who are really smart, warm to the
world, and who insist on caring for themselves well in all areas.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work with teens in a residential recovery program. I am making
art, riding my bike, walking the earth, and cherishing connection
with friends while exploring the depth and breadth of intimacy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Living simply. Scavenging. Creating outrageously beautiful things.
Nourishing myself physically and spiritually. Listening and
expressing myself. Being generous, kind and light . Sleeping.

I love a lot of music! Lately I've been listening to Mike Doughty
and Beck. Some of my other favorites are Citizen Cope, Beck, Dave
Matthews, Michael Franti. Rickie Lee Jones, Sinead O'connor, Ani
DiFranco, Aretha Franklin, Jamie Sieber, Ray Lamontayne, Van
Morrison, and Bill Withers, to name a few. I also love a lot of
international music, especially African and Latin - mostly with
acoustic instruments rather than electronica. Club music, heavy
metal, and much of pop music don't really speak to me. I get a big
kick out of Postmodern Jukebox covers.
I am a fairly ravenous film watcher when I can find the time, but
don't watch tv. I love foreign and independent films as well as
some mainstream movies in most genres, with the exception of horror
and violent action. Some recent ones that have stood out to me are:
Incendies, Moonrise Kingdom, Cyrus, The Avengers, Crazy Stupid
Love, Jane Eyre. Some favorites are: Memento, Lord of the Rings,
Moonstruck, Fight Club, Michael Clayton, Serenity.
I am a huge book lover and am always dipping into something. I love
natural history and fiction after too many years knocking my head
against heavy duty philosophy and the like. Lately I have been
reading David Deide and David Richo on relationships and thinking a
lot about masculine and feminine attraction/polarity. While I don't
often read CG Jung any more, his ideas via depth psychology are
very key to my way of understanding myself and others.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time outside in nature
touch, creativity and play
really good food every day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What makes people tick and why we do what we do. How I can listen
better and be more compassionate so that I can understand that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At work. But on Tuesday night I'm kicking back!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I do not believe in pajamas.
