My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd describe myself as confident, funny, optimistic, cerebral, and self-aware. Lover of social justice. A bit of a rebel. ENFJ. I'm looking for a long term relationship that's full of fun, laughter, intimacy, and mutual support.

I was born and raised in the East Coast, and spent 11 years in the freezing midwest. I also studied and accumulated passport stamps from my home base in southern France, and served pizza in London. After all that, I moved to New York seventeen years ago, breathed in the air, the pace and diversity and knew this was home.

For work (and pleasure) I run an educational consulting firm that focuses the aspects of education that I feel most passionate about: youth voice/power, social and emotional learning, engagement and positive school culture and climate.

The downside to running my own business is that I am with my boss 24/7 which can translate into working when I should be off the clock. This past year I decided to draw a thicker line in the sand between work and non-work time. My more intentional fun includes: time in nature upstate, hosting friends for dinner, attending Meetups, walking/exploring, practicing mindfulness meditation, eating yummy food, seeing films and an occasional concert/show, hanging with my daughter when she's with me and our adorable cats (Toast and Bagel). Sitting on the stoop with a cup of tea and a great book ranks up there as well.

And, in case you were wondering:
Yes, I've been dunked in a dunk tank while impersonating a police officer.
I once saved the life of someone who choked on a plastic frog.

As we know, chemistry has the final say for the most part. Just to put it out there, humor = very hot.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to experience the world as a child does by reveling in surrounding beauty, staying in the present, laughing heartily, and being honest with myself and others.

Climbing the learning curve of running a business.

Co-parenting my amazing daughter.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking to my cats in French, reading a room, looking on the bright side. Making people laugh, Laughing at myself. Random DIY projects.

I have a strange mind reading capability that only presents itself when playing Taboo or Cranium! You want me on your team.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Shows: I probably watch about 1-2 hours of TV a week. Given that, I really like Transparent, The Colbert Report, Breaking Bad, Parenthood, The Wire, BSG (up until the very end when it suddenly sucked), Inside Amy Schumer, Orange is the New Black.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughter, lactose pills, laughs, emotional and physical intimacy, self-awareness/growth, great friends who love me enough to tell it like it is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I might have done to cause the OkC bot to call me less suave! So untrue!

My car recently died so I find myself alternately snickering at alternate side parking signs, which I can now ignore, and missing sliding into the driver's seat to head up 87 into nature...

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am often hanging out with good friends, going out to eat, having an adventure in Bklyn or the City, watching a film or a play, going dancing (occasionally), or hanging with a group at someone's house. Lately I've taken up jogging and run through the neighborhood in the evening.

When I choose to hang solo I enjoy making dinner, reading, and/or watching that one show I'm following at the time. Sometimes I work on some fun DIY project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
On occasion, I pretend to be working from my home office when I am really "headquartered" at Spa Castle.
