My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Briefly, I am caring, funny, thoughtful, adventurous, and ready for long-term commitment with the right person.

I love: to dance (I take some modern and African classes, but also just like to get down), to sing, travel, outdoor rec (hiking, biking, cross-country skiing), yoga, being active and playful generally, film, to cook and eat, hardy laughs, getting away for the weekend, or schlubbing around my apartment in my pj's.

I recognize a friend by s/he who laughs generously at my jokes. Sometimes run in a new agey or hippie circle, but am often amongst the more ironic participants. I'm very close to my mom and my sister, and a doting aunt to my niece and nephew who live locally.

I also love to travel, have lived internationally, and am most stimulated by developing countries. Destinations on my wish list include Brazil, Ireland and Scotland, West and South Africa, Seattle and Vancouver, and so on and so on.

I am not religious, but find myself looking towards spirituality (e.g. mindfulness) more in recent years. I also come from a family rich in tradition (Jewish, Greek, and "New Yorker"), which is a great source of pleasure and entertainment.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As of March '15, I'm working as a project manager for an educational group travel company. I really enjoy my coworkers and their commitment to their mission. Plus they sent me to Cuba for a week so I ain't complaining.

I worked in international development and obesity prevention before travel. Project management and a commitment to doing good in the world are the constants.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, making myself laugh, listening, dance improvisation, honoring commitments, befriending children, riding a bike in the city, remembering song lyrics, taking care of myself, giving thoughtful gifts, massage, non-fiction writing, cooking a smattering of vegetarian and other dishes, giving and receiving affection, toasts and speeches for loved ones at special events.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have several different laughs and one of them is an onomatopoeic "ha ha ha." Some recurring compliments include high emotional IQ and nice butt, genuine, compassionate, and organized.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Boyhood, Happy Go Lucky, The Wrestler, Office Space, School of Rock, Pina, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Man on Wire, Frances Ha, Almodovar films.

TV: Downton Abbey and Louie CK are the only shows I'm totally loyal to. I really enjoyed the Oliver Kitteridge series.

Music: Gillian Welch, Brandi Carlile, Neil Young, lots of other folk/rock, Lauryn Hill, Ethiopian jazz and vocalists, some pop (ex. Lorde, Sia), indie rock, etc. Emphasis on etc. I suppose I fall healthily left of center on the folk/rock spectrum, and most other spectra for that matter.

Books: I've been on a Buddhism and mindfulness reading streak in the last year or so.

Food and drink: There are few foods that I don't like. Indian and Greek food and ice cream rank pretty high and I can enjoy finer dining but generally seek out low-profile neighborhood spots especially ethnic restaurants. I have vegetarian leanings but like meat, too. Eat lots of fruits and veggies. I enjoy beer, wine, and cocktails, but all in moderation.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, music, dance, hugs, and kisses.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Small tweaks (improvements) to my work/life balance, human nature, friendship and relationships generally, men, the haves and have nots, how to minimize my environmental impact, dance/movement, my niece and nephew, my many blessings, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There really isn't a typical Friday night. I'm active/social a few evenings a week, more often that's on the weekend but not always.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've got a sense of humor (ripsnorting hilarious is great - silly and playful are good, too), are kind, active, communicative, and warm.

You have the time and are in the right emotional space to integrate someone new into your life.
