Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love growing and eating food, laughing with friends, strategizing
ways to create more sustainable and joyful communities. I like
building things myself, caring for livestock, hiking and swimming
in ponds. You are more likely to find me on my bike than in the gym
and in a coffee shop than a club. I've done a triathlon and
marathon....but I am also a champion sleeper. I'm open and outgoing
and I laugh a lot, often at my own expense ( I just put my oatmeal
in the french press with the coffee...I have to laugh!) I love
board games, trivia, cooking, drinking tea, dancing, biking through
puddles, running, writing punny puppet shows, summer, spring and
I'm looking for someone who has a dream and is excited to keep
learning every day. Someone who is willing to try any food once,
who laughs at my puns and still is curious about the world. Someone
who loves food and trying to live as sustainably, fully and
joyfully as possible.
For all you Myers-Briggs fans, I'm an INFP.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Growing food, teaching, singing, learning. Trying to cook more
during the farm season. learning to park the tractor in a container
with only 2 inch clearance on both sides. trying to keep a regular
yoga & meditation practice.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and mediating.
Being a friend.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I will listen to anything I can sing to. Mumford & Sons,
Ray LaMontagne, Jack Johnson, Crooked still, Avett Brothers and
Gillian Welch. I grew up abroad so I also love Maná, Manu Chao,
Indochine...and in the car I often listen to NPR and KDHX.
Creedence stays in the tape deck. In my radio DJ debut, I played an
hour straight of Johnny Cash on Christmas Eve because I was sick of
Christmas music. seriously. now they start playing it after
I love food! especially if I raised it myself. I love avocados,
chocolate, tea, raw milk, heirloom tomatoes, homemade sausage
(yes...I used to get the publication "sausage maker") I'm not a big
drinker, but that's just so I can beat you in darts. I do like a
good stout or IPA.
Books: Love Prayer for Owen Meany, Prodigal Summer, Unsettling of
America, East of Eden, Secret Life of Bees.
Last read "The Market Gardener" by Jean-Martin Fortier for work and
"Flight Behavior" by Barbara Kingsolver for fun
Movies: I love "The Visitor", "Amelie" and Wes Anderson. all time
fave is the princess bride.
Love watching stand-up. especially Billy Connelly.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. friends and that unbeatable feeling where you're begging them to
stop being funny because your stomach aches from laughing
2. summer. (this lets me count tomatoes, campfires, and
paddleboarding in one)
3. seeds and land. I can figure out how to grow the rest.
4. my car. it has my tent, ridge rest and sleeping bag, in case a
last-minute camping trip proves tempting.
5. finally got a smartphone in 2014 because my co-workers refuse to
keep looking up the weather for me 10 times a day!
6. soulshine (better than sunshine...better than moonshine, damn
sure better than rain)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
personality tests, linguistics, human relationships, ecology, the
skills I need to become a sustainable superhero, how to continue
growing into the fullest and best parts of myself, and all the
various farm implements I want to figure out how to run on bike

often contra dancing, hanging out with friends at a potluck or
outdoor movie. I work Saturdays so sometimes I just go for a run in
forest park or learn songs on the ukelele.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I may have watched the movie "Dude, where's my car" ten times. or

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know a good place to go hiking, canoeing, paddleboarding,
climbing or play foosball or darts around here. If you can laugh at
yourself. Or if you just think we might hit it off and want to meet
up. I like getting to know people a bit through writing but I'm not
actually on here to find a penpal, so I'd love to meet.
