My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd describe myself as funny, optimistic, smart, and self-aware. A bit of a rebel. Comfortable with myself. ENFJ.

I'm a native East Coaster who's studied in southern France, served pizza in London and spent 11 significant years in the midwest learning, teaching and alternately freezing and defrosting.

When I packed up and moved to New York, I breathed in the air, the pace and diversity and knew this was home. After two decades here I still have a crush on NYC.

This summer I've been checking the items off my summer bucket list (checking out a rooftop film, kayaking, seeing stand-up comedy, eating delicious food, dancing, attending MeetUps, doing DIY projects, traveling, jogging, and meditating.

Sitting on the stoop with a cup of iced green tea and a great book is also a frequent occurrence.

And, in case you were wondering:
Yes, I've been dunked in a dunk tank while impersonating a police officer and 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.
After teaching HS for many years, I started an educational consulting firm that focuses on what I'm most passionate about: positive school culture and social and emotional support for youth. I love what I do.

I am co-parenting my hilarious and awesome daughter when she's with me (half the time). Lately we've been skateboarding.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Looking on the bright side, staying super calm in an emergency, Boggle, making others laugh and laughing at myself.

Whispering secrets to you in French.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My positive energy.

People often comment on how young I look.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm continually looking for that next experience where I can get lost in a book, gain insight, or dive into another world. I love non-fiction and fiction alike.

-I just picked up Ta-Nehisi Coates. I'll let you know how it is.

Food: I am very open. I tend toward fresh and healthy but would enjoy eating with you at the all night diner as well. Yes to spicy.

Shows: The Colbert Report/ Stewart, Breaking Bad, The Wire, BSG, Inside Amy Schumer. Just watched the first season of Transparent on Amazon Prime and really liked it.

Am a total nerd for TED talks and This American Life.

Music has always been a love of my life. While I have favorites (from reggae to funk, w. African and punk) I like to explore new music and am open to almost anything (although opera has never done it for me)

Films: Birdman, Crazy, Sexy Love, Grand Budapest Hotel, Silver Linings Playbook, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Trainwreck was hilarious
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughter, emotional and physical intimacy, family, laughing, 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.
How can I best make a difference.

Whether I should become a vegetarian.

Is this yoga pose supposed to look like this?...

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Eating out or having a few friends over, seeing a film or occasionally going dancing when I can rally some friends to join me.
Often relaxing at home.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
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 prefer face-to-face over virtual relationships (texting just doesn't do it for me).

You also want a strong, passionate and supportive relationship where we lean on each other, grow together, and can't wait to see each other.
