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 and/or game nights, attending Meet Ups, dancing, 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.
Climbing the learning curve of running a business.

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.

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!
My green eyes. (More honestly, men probably notice other body parts first).

I get a lot of comments about how young I look.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
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. House of cards is on my "to watch" list.

Am a total nerd for TED talks.

Food: cheese (stinkier the better), kale, Caramel Cone ice cream, Doubles and Bake (delicious Trinidadian food), kimchi pancakes, avocados, Cheese Fondue, Ethiopian food, pain au chocolat. The majority of my meals are vegetarian, but I do love (grass fed) steak and, of course, bacon.

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, 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.
"It's 8:59am. Wait, which side of the street the car is parked on?!??"

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 plays/improv, going dancing on occasion, or hanging with a group at someone's house...I love game nights

When I choose to hang solo I usually make dinner, read, and/or watch that one show I'm following at the time. Truth be told, I sometimes work (especially if I've played hooky during the day).
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.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want a "partner in crime". ONLY KIDDING:
1) I don't really want to commit crimes with you. I'd rather just date you if that's ok with you.
2) If I did want a partner for crime purposes, I probably wouldn't advertise that on a dating site. Oh, unless it went under the "The most private thing I am willing to admit" section.
