Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm funny, generally happy, and curious. I like to learn things.
I'm a dog person. I love to cook--discovered grilling this
summer!--and I love to eat. I'm pretty happy with my little life
but I think adding someone to it could only enrich it.
I’m a reader and a cinephile. I love to cook, though not bake. I
get the same zen’d out feeling making a great meal that I do when I
run. I’ve been a vegetarian and a vegan (kale = yes) and could be
again, but for now I am enjoying the gifts of our hooved friends.
Despite that, I am very interested in health, mine and that of the
planet, and am always trying to move closer to an ideal state. The
trying is the important part. Along those lines, I’m trying to move
away from a desk-bound career and hope to become an acupuncturist.
Currently, I’m an editor. I still love writing and “the life of the
mind,” but I think I have more to offer, and gain, by engaging more
I love, need, and crave the outdoors. Hiking with the dogs and
friends, or a few days of solo camping, whatever; I draw peace and

A friend tells me that I’m quiet on the surface but brewing
underneath. I think this is true, but it’s equally true that I wear
my heart on my sleeve. The most stupid stuff makes me cry, but I
laugh just as easily. Really, I’m pretty funny, this profile not
withstanding; sarcasm is family currency. Humor and kindness (and a
tendency toward the handy—no doubt about it, a handy man is
attractive), are qualities I’m looking for in a man. Quick wit,
curiosity, the ability to summon gallows humor in a dark moment;
these are all good things. Do you like music? Can you watch a
subtitled film without falling asleep? Would the thought that you’d
already eaten the best meal of your life make you sad? If any of
this resonates let’s have a chat.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Besides preparing for the revolution? I'm an editor and I work with
a veterinary acupuncture practice. Working towards becoming an
acupuncturist myself (for humans).

I agree with Roger Ebert that a movie isn't about what it's about,
it's about how it's about what it's about. So I'm up for any genre.
Music: Grizzly Bear, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Damien Rice, Elvis
(both), John Cash, Willy, Phoenix, etc., etc. Books: lately reading

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This isn't really private, but I'm a little ashamed of it . . .
sometimes commercials make me cry. That Google+ commercial? God,
