Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a passionate girl with a myriad of interests, but most
importantly, I love to learn. I have been rather self reflective
lately and I have come to the conclusion that I am looking for
someone with whom I can continue to grow and learn. I think that
balance in life is really important and am always trying to keep
balance. I find equal beauty in the lines of a classic car as I do
in the paint strokes that make the ballerinas in the Degas at the
Norton. I am a bit of a hopeless romantic, but I can also be a tad
sarcastic. I'm often told I'm not what people expect me to
I have an interesting job in city/urban planning that keeps my mind
challenged, but I am hoping to find someone who challenges me on
many levels. I am into cooking (big foodie and even bigger beer
connoisseur), music, the beach, sports games, and more. In general,
I have a curious heart and am excited about trying new things and
experiencing new adventures in life. I feel like the company one
surrounds themselves with is more important than an activity or
event. While my passport is a bit dusty, I thorughly love to
travel, such that I've been racking up my frequent filer miles
domestically as of late.
I'm looking for someone accomplished but down to earth, someone
with smarts yet a certain level of self-deprecation. When I think
about my ideal match, I would want him to possess traits that I
feel also describe me: caring, compassionate, bright, honest,
passionate, loyal, lighthearted and multifaceted. I fully realize
relationships are not easy, so I am looking for someone who is
interested in building a life together. I truly believe in getting
to know each other and establishing a good rapport. I also love
exploring LA and am open to meeting new friends to hang out with.
Life is short and I don’t want to miss a thing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do land use urban planning for local government.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
walking my dog, cleaning up dog hair, feeding my tortoise, being a
good friend and always looking to be supportive and helpful. And
I'm actually a big foodie... I truly love to cook and love to eat
great food, especially gastropubs or great restaurants. I also have
a really diverse "interests" range, which I guess means I love to
learn about new things and appreciate things for what they are. I'm
great with maps (hence the career choice) and I love traveling. I'm
also a big fan at taking advantage of all the great things LA's
urban metropolitan life has to offer.

Did a lot of reading in all my school years, do lots of reading in
my 9-5 mostly zoning codes, city regulations and political/local
blogs. I read the Times daily (the actual paper one, I know it's
not very eco-friendly and I have the "app for that" but there's
something about an actual newspaper that I'll not be able to let
go), and adore NPR.
TV choices have evolved to HGTV, Food Network, History Channel, and
Homeland (now 2 seasons behind). I'm addicted to Jeopardy! (Still
#TeamJulia) The Newsroom, Veep, The Goldbergs, Project Runway,
Modern Family, (and Girls - makes me scratch my head but I can't
look away). Need to have my daily dose of Jon Stewart and The
Colbert Report keeps me grounded. I love Anthony Bourdain and
I ADORE cooking as I mentioned before. I love to make up dishes and
just make some good food, anything from traditional Mexican to
southern soul food and anything that tastes better with bacon. Yes,
I'm a foodie...
Music, truly love it all. There are some genres that are a little
less my favorites but I love to boogie with the best of them.

be said for that.” ~ Johnny Cash
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, my dog, NPR/KCRW/KPCC, common sense, internet and bacon.
