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 studied in southern France, served pizza in London and spent 11 significant years in the midwest doing social justice work, 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.

I'm sad that summer has passed, but do love the crisp fall air and have been thankful for some of the warm fall weather we've been experiencing (thanks, global warming). My summer habit of reading on the stoop is slowly giving way to cradling hot green tea. Other fall activities include attending a few MeetUps, doing DIY projects, going to the gym (They have these amazing massage chairs there! Can I count that as part of the work out?), and practicing mindfulness meditation and hot yoga. Of course, hanging out with friends over dinner or the occasional drink and exploring museums and the nooks and crannies of NY.

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: social and emotional support for youth and positive school culture. Love, 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.

Attending a few MeetUps, doing DIY projects, practicing mindfulness meditation and hot yoga.

And, as is evidenced by this profile, I'm looking for you.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Looking on the bright side, making mistakes, learning from said mistakes, Boggle, making others laugh and laughing at myself.

Whispering secrets in French.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Here's what I hear:

"You've got great energy"

"I feel so comfortable with you"

"Wait, that really happened?!"

"You're nice and pretty" (written on a workshop feedback form)

"You're the best mom in the world!" (usually exclaimed following the purchase of a dessert item).

"Hi sexy lady. You've got great _____" (OkCupid messages. Sigh.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've thought a lot about this section. Music, books and films have both saved my life, changed how I see myself and the world, and have given me pure pleasure. The truth is that similarities in this section aren't the deepest predictors of a successful relationship so my lists are short.

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 finished reading Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me. A few others I like: Erik Larsen (Devil in the White City), Cheryl Strayed, Kafka, Zinn, Gladwell, Jhumpa Lahiri.

Am a big fan of food. Recently decided to become a vegetarian and/but don't at all mind if you aren't. I'll fit in at a fancy restaurant but am just as happy spending the night with you sharing fries at a local diner or dive bar. (Note- bacon, I miss you).

Shows: The Americans, Breaking Bad, The Wire, BSG, Inside Amy Schumer, Orange is the New Black, Transparent, (loved Colbert Report/ Stewart).

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

Music has always been a love of my life. While I have favorites (from reggae to funk, W. African to punk) I like to explore new music and am open to almost anything (although I'm not a big fan of opera).

Films: Intouchables, Birdman, Crazy, Sexy Love, Grand Budapest Hotel, Les 400 Coups, Silver Linings Playbook, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Blue is the Warmest Color. 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, social justice, 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 I can best make a difference.

Its's 8:59! Which side is the car parked on?!

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. Sometimes at a yoga class.

Alternately, relaxing at home with a cup of tea and a good book or the one show I'm watching on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
You should message me if
