I grew up in New England, went to school in Boston, then moved
somewhere I don't need a snow scraper in my car all winter. I laugh
easily, smile broadly. I love to be challenged, work hard, and
climb to relax.
After languishing for (ahem) a while, I should probably make some
I switched jobs at the beginning of 2012, took three weeks to relax
in Australia in between, have fallen deeply in love with
photography as a hobby, and now have a place in San Francisco.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working hard now so I can travel and do great things soon.
I’m really good at
Getting people to talk about things they like. Doesn't always work,
but I've left more than a few conversations knowing way more about
the person I'm talking to than they do about me.
Oh, and cuddling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile. A lot. And it usually just gets worse when I've had a
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm currently reading (this has been going on for a while) a book
my historian cousin wrote about the period surrounding the American
Revolution. It's fascinating to me to get the added depth to a
period and to people that, from my traditional education, have
always seemed flat and rather boring.
Favorite movie: The Thomas Crown Affair (Pierce Brosnan/Rene
Russo.) I would love to see the original sometime.
Current go-to music is a Pandora playlist I call "Energy"... used
for getting ready for the day or keeping pace on a run.
When it comes to the gastronomic, I generally lean towards Indian,
Spanish, and some traditional American fare.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Rock climbing and taking the perfect photo.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmm I need to think about this one some more.
You should message me if
The idea of listening to me ramble about some random topic once in
a while doesn't scare you. If you think you would enjoy engaging in
that rambling to make it a random conversation or light-hearted
debate, well then, even better.
I enjoy non-traditional dates, so while I don't mind meeting for a
drink, I think meeting at a museum or somewhere to go kayaking
would be way more interesting.
