Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an outgoing person who is kind and fun! I feel strongly about
social justice (equity in education, in particular, but other forms
of justice, too), treating the earth with reverence, and that disco
is not dead. I have recently decided that eating good food with
friends and sweating in nature are basically all I need to be
happy, so I try to do those two things as much as possible.
I've been in the dating world for a long time, and I'm ready to
find a great person that I can commit to, love, and learn from.
Bring it on!
Also, I still miss Philip Seymour Hoffman. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For work, I'm an educational consultant--supporting teachers,
schools, and districts to better serve low-income kids. Other than
work, I like to be with family and friends, go on fun dates with
you, play and run around, cut wood with my maul, work on a close-by
farm (I helped castrate a pig once, but mostly I help them weed),
hike and run in the woods, and explore fun places in Portland I
haven't been to yet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
rowing boats, middle school math, baking pies, making costumes out
of stuff in my basement, helping teachers get better, and following
through with a plan. I'm about to become a beekeeper. I'm not yet
good at that.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
trees, friends and family, running in the woods, stupid jokes,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I guess I think a lot about where my most recent life changes are
going to take me. I also think about where my keys are. And when I
will be in the woods next. And should I text you? Is it too soon?
(I'm not that suave when it comes to dating, FYI. I can be kind of
over-excited about things...it's just how I am, but I realize it
doesn't help my dating efforts. Argh!) And I sometimes think about
school reform or my new hot blue leather jacket. Ok, it's pleather.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
working on a project with my roomies, watching a movie, going to
bed early, cooking dinner for friends, going to SPACE, or if I can
rally my friends, going out dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
