Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there. My name is Katie and according to my friends when asked
to describe me, I am fun, vivacious, and devoted. Not bad
adjectives I'd say! One friend also said loud. I'm putting it out
there because while I'm not volume loud, I definitely can be the
rowdy one in a group or the one who says what's on everyone's mind
when most folks are too shy to say it.
I'm a huge sports fan - especially the Sharks and 49ers. Also
soccer & Stanford volleyball. I pretty much enjoy everything
outdoors and try to spend as much of my free time there. I respond
well to natural light and need a regular dose of vitamin D in my
life. My house usually has at least a few windows and doors open to
let the breeze through. I could live quite happily in a teeny house
with a lot of outdoor space. I love living in Mountain View, and as
long as my 4x4 truck gets some regular action in the mountains, I'm
content being mostly a city girl. (The rest of the time I drive a
more eco-friendly vehicle or my bike around town.)
I'm a team player. I like to do things with people - and I'm
looking for someone who is adventurous, at least a little
spontaneous, and loves life!!! My family is important to me and I
see them often. We collect rocks together (yeah, a little science
nerd lives inside me), I play music with my dad, and we enjoy
cocktail hours together.
I like to socialize and go out several nights a week, usually to
play pool or have a few drinks with friends. I also really like to
cuddle up on the couch with someone special and watch movies,
listen to music, play my guitar, or just engage in some witty
banter. I appreciate a clever man who can keep me challenged and on
I am disappointed in myself for beginning so many sentences with I.
This is a horrible display of sentence fluency.
BTW, on the rocks doesn't mean I've hit low times! (Two people now
have asked me about this so I figured I'd better clarify as to not
scare anyone off!) It's a "name" I've used for many years because
I'm a geologist by schooling and prefer my liquor on ice with no
mixers. I also think it's a badass name if I'm ever in a band. Just
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professionally, I train and support K-12 teachers who are teaching
in low-income & low-performing schools in the Bay Area. Prior
to that I was an elementary school teacher for 12 years and also
worked for the Forest Service.
Personally, I have a lot of hobbies and like to have a good time. I
play music (sing, guitar, flute). I am a geologist and make jewelry
out of rocks. I like to kick a ball around with friends and watch a
lot of sports. I'm a camper and have lots of fun toys (inflatable
bar, hand-operated blender, & kayaks to name a few!).
I'm looking for a teammate, and I'm not sure I'll find him online,
but I'm giving it a shot. The men I meet out at bars often leave a
little to be desired. No, I wouldn't say I'm that picky, I just
think telling me about your nether regions could wait for at least
a second meeting! I'm no prude and enjoy regular intimacy for sure,
but that's really not the way to pique my interest off the bat. I
want to know we're compatible in other ways first!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at making people feel comfortable and loved, and
can easily make someone giggle to point where they cry. People
often tell me they feel like they've known me a lot longer than we
actually have known each other. I love social situations where I
don't know anyone - it's a great opportunity to put myself out
there and find out cool things about new people.
I also make mean cocktails and like to entertain. I'm a proud
Bartender School graduate. : )
Finally, I'm really good at my job and proud of that. I work really
hard, but balance is important to me and I make sure I play just as
hard - if not harder!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told it's my winning smile and the mischievous glint in
my eyes... ;-) Also, my hair seems to get lots of compliments which
cracks me up because I'm a super low-maintenance girl and don't
have the slightest idea how to style it. Hence, lots of pics with
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book: Earth Abides, Unbroken, How To Archer, The Power of One,
Collapse, Cadillac Desert, Angle of Respose, Assembling California,
The Gashlycrumb Tinies.
Music: way too eclectic to say, but just about everything -
something at least from every genre. I prefer to play & sing
more mellow music, but that's likely because of my limited guitar
skills. :-) BTW, if you play and sing and are looking for a music
buddy, message me! My "specialty" is harmony vocals and I'd love to
find someone local to play with at open mic events.
Food: I'm pretty much a carnivore & do most of my shopping at
farmer's market or Trader Joe's. I like to try new things, but am
somewhat of a creature of habit. I'd love to meet someone to cook
WITH as that can be lots of fun. I love to wash dishes by hand. I
find it therapeutic in a weird way.
Movies: way too many, but a couple that I saw recently that
surprised me were Kung Fu Hustle, Thank You For Smoking, The
Avengers, The Power of One, and Chasing Amy. Also really enjoyed
Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers this summer.
Podcasts: Hollywood Babble-On with Kevin Smith & Ralph Garmin,
Jay & Silent Bob Get Old, Mohr Stories
TV: Archer, law & order, the mentalist, sports!!!, psych, burn

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
solid friends & family who value integrity
satisfying & meaningful work
time for hobbies - music, photography, sports, etc.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly, the fact that I'm looking for someone AWESOME on a site
called "OK" Cupid. I want more than OK out of life. :-D
In all seriousness....I think a lot about the past year. I've put
myself through several major transitions (most important for you to
know is that I am divorced) and I'm really proud that I made the
changes in my life I wanted to make even though they weren't easy
and/or popular. I have a hard time with people who complain and are
complacent in their discontent. Do something about it! I'm glad I
did! You can't put a price on happiness. :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends, home watching a movie, hanging out in my
awesome backyard enjoying the night & a beverage, or having a
casual jam session. Depends on what the work week was like! Maybe
in the near future I'll be hanging out with YOU!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
