Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Where to start? I'm a fairly new arrival to Seattle, having moved
here from the East Coast just a few years ago...
I'm passionate about many things in my life- cooking and enjoying
good food, good music (classical, indie rock, jazz, etc.),
listening to NPR, running, sailing, volunteering, and finding
genuine connection with others.
I LOVE to cook and enjoy good food, especially with those close to

In general, I'm looking for someone who is thoughtful, genuine,
kind, and has similarly progressive values (pro-choice and
pro-same-sex marriage, etc.)
I'm especially attracted to warm, smart, thoughtful women who have
a voice and enjoy sharing it with the world. I'm fairly assertive
myself, in a balanced and grounded way (a good combo of my East
Coast and West Coast identities, I think!), and I'm drawn to others
who have a similar warmth, vibrancy, and grounded substantial-ness
to them. Does this sound like you, dear reader? If so, read on!

I work in the nonprofit/philanthropic sector.

lectures at Town Hall, concerts, etc...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Connection (friends, love)
2. Good food
3. Good music
4. The ocean
5. Irish breakfast tea
6. My ORCA Card!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
[Sound of crickets chirping]
Don't get me wrong... I like a good think. I just can't say that
there's any one thing that I think mostly about!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home or sharing good food with friends.
