Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Go ahead and move on to the next guy if:
- you think you're not creative
- you don't like the sun
- all your friends are the same ethnicity and class
- nightclubs are more interesting to you than Nature
- you're convinced you look more beautiful with makeup on than
- "I'm hungry. Let's go to McDonald's."
- shopping is your favorite pastime
- you worship more than you cherish
- you think soil is dirty
- "OMG I lost my cellphone!!! How will I survive???," hysterical,
- travel to less developed countries would scare you
- family is not important to you
- you have no questions

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Is following my passions, values, high ambition, and having a whole
lot of fun along the way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Connecting with all sorts of people and building communities,
writing for print and public speaking, hosting a party and
selecting good music, getting into the mountains, urban farming (I
have been using a pitchfork to bale hay since my youth, this is
ain't no hippie hipster thang), enjoying most any kind of food you
put in front of me, combining flavor and texture when cooking,
sports that involve throwing objects or hitting them with sticks,
knowing the gems of California that other natives don't know, being
creative or romantic with outings . . .
I could easily make a longer list of my weaker abilities. The first
item on the list would be ice skating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depends in which part of the world I am. If I am in sub-Saharan
Africa it is that I am white. If I am in Brazil it's my light skin
and blue eyes. In Asia I get tall and strong a lot. In the US it's
often my confident voice and calm presence.

I look for music with soul in it, and enjoy sharing music with
others who appreciate original and talented artists of any genre
that can move a listener to some kind of emotion. Music is a big
part of my life from classical piano to socially conscious hip-hop
to energizing electronic tango to heartstring-pulling indie
I like movies like Life is Beautiful, City of God or The Green
Mile. I like stories of triumph or tragedy or a time and place now
past. I like documentaries too, and of course a clever comedy. I
want to be inspired by films and or have them give me something on
which to reflect. Same goes for books, though I tend to read more
for information. Steinbeck, Kundera, Allende, Voltaire, Zinn, Muir,
Schell. I like magazines - The Sun, Seed, Economist, New Yorker,
National Geographic, Lapham's Quarterly.
Food? I am definitely live to eat. Good food and cooking is central
in my family, and a reason to travel. I can't say I favor any
particular cuisine. Tonight, I'll want injera and tibs, tomorrow
feijoada, the next sashimi or ceviche . . . better stop. I'm
getting hungry. Let's get to the market and then make dinner
together. I'm into that.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Fresh fruits and vegetables
Sense of purpose
My mother's unconditional love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

violence-based in our power structures to sustainable and more
