My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to refer to myself as a part-time poet, explorer and radio nerd. But if that isn't enough, I give you an introduction of me using small details (like the beginning of Amélie):

I love the words quintessence and kismet. I dislike empty walls. If I had a catch phrase, it would probably be Pun Always Intended. I like to come up with weird nicknames for pets. My roommate's cat named Martin was Tini (Martini) to me and I even had a Martin & Martinis party in his honor. I hope to own a cat again soon and name it Tolstoy, cause cats know nothing better than war and peace. C.J. Cregg is my spirit animal and Jad Abumrad of Radiolab is my hero.

I think that sums it up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just moved back to the Bay after getting my Masters in Arts Administration at the University of Oregon. I miss Oregon beer, ice cream and movie pubs, but I'm open to suggestions in the Bay! Currently in Benicia while I endear the trials and tribulations of job searching, but hoping to end up in Berkeley/Oakland soon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing. I love to laugh. So, I surround myself with hilarious people.

Urban exploring!! And by that I guess I mean exploring the culture of an urban environment. I've a little obsession with trying to do everything around me. If you have any suggestions of places I need to check out in the Bay, please let me know!!

Writing? Well, I'm working on being really good at it.

I have a writing blog where I post some works and I also have a MetaphorADay twitter where I post a short poem everyday. And now I'm actually getting paid to write sometimes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My enthusiasm. "Let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure." - Dumbledore

Maybe's it's just my curly hair. What do you think?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a very long list of favorites but I'm going to try to keep it to the rule of three, for mystery! And science.

Books: Everything is Illuminated. Jonathan Strange. Harry Potter. I was actually on a muggle quidditch team in college. Goooo O.W.L.S. (Original Wizarding League of Spartans)!!!

Movies: Well my younger self wants me to say Lord of the Rings, but actually my 3 favorite movies are probably: Pan's Labyrinth, Babel and Stage Beauty, though there are many other contenders. Boyhood won best picture in my heart.

TV: Firefly all the way! Then Parks & Rec and Gilmore Girls. If you think "Oh that's a girl show", that's precisely why I love it. The more real portrayals of different kinds of women in media, the better. Also, it feels like a sin not to include The Daily Show somewhere in here.

Music: This is hardest for me to pick just because I think the more you love music, the more music you love. So instead I will offer some highlights:
Favorite album: Thao & Mirah
Favorite Concert: Well I can't say Thao again (though it was everything I hoped it would be), so Gogol Bordello or Pink Martini. Kind of on opposite spectrums.
Song(s) I May Never Get Tired Of: Contact High by Architecture in Helsinki, Baby I'm Yours by Breakbot or Amanaemonesia by Chairlift. Seriously, if you need a boost to your day, just listen to any of those.
Musician I Wish I Could See: Louis Armstrong
Guilty (not so guilty) Pleasure: Justin Timberlake
Bedroom Dance Party Music: Black Kids
Favorite Singer: Camille (basically the Bjork of France)
Sunday Afternoon Music: Kings of Convenience
I have a playlist called LOL Jams that brings me great joy.
Okay I think that's enough.

Podcasts: This is even harder because radio is my thang but if I had to pick it would be 99% Invisible, How to Do Everything, and Wiretap. Though I've been falling in love with The Memory Palace. If you want to hear incredibly beautiful short stories about history, you need to listen to this show. If you want to talk radio, I will gladly do so.

Food: I will admit it, I'm a foodie. I love anything unique, homemade or gourmet so I'll pick my favorite restaurants: Screen Door in Portland, Pasta Piatti in Ashland and Morning Glory, also in Ashland. Oh and I'm vegetarian but not extremely strict about it.

Theater: I also really love theatre. One of my favorite things to do is go see a play. I don't know if I can pick my top 3 but I do go the Oregon Shakespeare Festival every year and not just for Shakespeare!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my friends
2) culture
3) adventure!
4) the environment
5) laughter
6) delicious food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much easier my life would be if I could teleport. Then how chaotic the world would be if we could actually teleport. I have this idea that there should be teleportation depots at similar named streets like go from one 1st St to the next 1st St. Somewhat controlled chaos. At least strangers or worse relatives wouldn't be popping up in your house all the time.

There are so many things to do in life. So, I spend a lot of time thinking about how to best use my time (thus wasting time). Again, teleportation would help.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well that all depends on what is happening Friday night. Know of something radtaculur?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a big celebrity crush on Darren Criss. Any Very Potter Musical fans out there?

Also, I can rap all of Gold Digger by heart. I'm actually quite proud that I can pull this off.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we share some similar interests and you're ready for Adventure Time! I'm looking for someone who has a lust for life. Someone who wants to take advantage of living in the Bay and explore this crazy metropolis with me!

Looking for something to say?
Tell me about your perfect weekend. If your Lazy Sunday involves making breakfast and listening to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, then you are made of solid gold stars. Or if you like to go to concerts and dance your ass off (even if they're outdoors), then I salute your steppin' it up, steppin' it up to the streets.

Or if you have a great punny name for a roller derby or quidditch team, then you must tell me immediately!
