Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Having moved to Seattle a year ago from the Bay Area I am settling
in and trying to find my new favorite and go-to places- Mexican
food, forests, trails, swimming holes, etc.
I am happy to venture out on my own, and do often, but it would be
great to find some kindred company to share new experiences with
Nature is my solace and a huge spiritual and healing force in my
life. I hold strong environmental/DIY/green design, etc. beliefs
close to heart and volunteer when I can to keep this interest alive
in my life.
I'm not a huge sports fan when I comes to watching- but I do love
playing volleyball, swimming, canoeing, and hiking. I want to try
snowboarding in the next year or so.
My party days are over, for the most part ;) unless there is a
bonfire or other attraction besides drinking. I do 12 step work for
how my life has been affected and am constantly growing and
changing in amazing ways as a result.
Teaching is a way for me to constantly apply what I am learning and
how I am growing to help improve the lives of the students I work
with. I have a lot of love to give and on a daily basis try to
bring a positive and can-do attitude to help students overcome
challenges. I try to apply these same principles in my life as
often as possible.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching, dreaming up my future big garden/farm, making new
friends, walking around the neighborhood, taking in views of the
lake, trying to find my way around Seattle, looking for hiking
spots and Mexican food, meditating, playing volleyball.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
intuiting, listening, appreciating nature, overcoming challenges,
helping young people, focusing on the positive, and growing plants

My amazing inner glow, or you tell me...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm into non-fiction that has to do with adventure/travel,
environmental issues, spirituality, and self-improvement.
Movies: some favs are: Reign Over Me, The Intouchables, Garden
State, PS I Love You, Into the Wild, and Never Cry Wolf.
Music: I grew up on nu-wave, alternative and grunge bands. Then I
went through an electronica phase which morphed into an
appreciation for folk and acoustic. Today its a combo plus anything
new that sounds good :)
Food: I'm an omnivore and eat 99% gluten free. I'm really into
fresh food, preferably organic. I thoroughly enjoy chopping and
cooking from scratch, and love to eat out, especially Mexican,
Thai, and Ethopian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and Family (people to share life with)
Love (in general)
The basics- food, air, shelter, water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be a better teacher and person, how amazing life, people,
and nature are, work :/
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At happy hour/dinner with friends, vegging at home, walking in a
forest, talking on the phone, dancing to music in my living room,
at the movies...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't make my bed every day.
