My self-summary
east coast transplant traversing the wild west. new jersey roots with extended branches in philadelphia, portland, and now the bay area. painted my own thumb green and fancy the title urban homesteader.

in company, i always seem to be talking, eating or drinking (both alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, for the record). when alone, i often get lost in literature or art projects.

most of my jokes are inappropriate and i thrive off folks i can match wits with. (and i don't mind ending sentences with prepositions.)

looking to meet new friends to share beverages, meals and adventures.
What I’m doing with my life
serving delicious food and drink to pay my bills; plotting entrepreneurial advances; reading too many books at once; getting my hands dirty outside; making a mess in my kitchen; sifting through junk at thrift stores; hanging things on my walls.
I’m really good at
talking. eating. listening. traveling. hosting. decorating.
The first things people usually notice about me
people seem to pick up fairly quickly that i'm from the east coast. i talk loud, laugh hard and say what i mean. most find that very endearing. ahem. most.
