Who is this bearded man you ask? He hails from the great Pacific Northwest, and resides in San Francisco by way of Spain, Guatemala, Peru... He's adventurous and outgoing; passionate, confident, but not cocky; Playful and silly, but with a serious side; Creative, spontaneous and intentional. A storyteller and dreamer. A feminist who believes in chivalry. A speaker in the third person. A believer in romance, even if this is ok cupid.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for an international feminist organization in Oakland and
love it. When I'm not working, I can be found lounging around my
ridiculously fun warehouse in SoMa, exploring SF on my two-wheels,
traveling (most recently to Uganda), throwing down in the kitchen
and on the dance floor, staying active (running / biking / yoga /
soccer), finding inspiration through my camera, and, in general,
trying to learn sweet new skills.
I’m really good at
Finding gems in used clothing stores. Sneaking into long lines.
Napping. Bicycling in traffic. Starting impromptu dance parties.
Taking pictures. Coming up with ideas on the spot. Massages.
Talking to strangers. Directions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think my smile and my eyes. And sometimes my shoes.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was 6 years old I traded a two-foot tall transformer to my
older neighbor for five my little ponies. I am not proud of this.
You should message me if
You are passionate, creative and driven. You are serious about what you want outta life, but don't take yourself too seriously. You are up for adventures and exploring the incredible variety that SF, Oakland and surroundings have to offer. Burlesque shows, live music, impromptu dance parties, and flea markets excite you. You are into traveling and the outdoors. Bonus points if you've read anything by Tom Robbins.
