Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm moving to SLC in October 2014 after living outside of Utah for
about 15 years. Looking to meet some new people to help
re-introduce me to my home state.
A bit about me...
I am a mix of what seem like unusual contradictions: I am a
conservative with a soft spot for leftist counter-cultural
movements; I am a Christian with Jewish heritage and an old Jewish
soul; I am a foodie and cook with plenty of curves who loves the
gym and is dedicated to living a healthy life; and my seemingly
straight-laced resume belies an inner wild streak and adrenaline
junkie. I'm quirky and cute, smart and funny, and probably overly
I'm a positive, energetic and kind person always looking for what
is interesting, beautiful and fun. I love having a good time,
entertaining, being with friends and trying new things.
I have 11 siblings and about 30 nieces and nephews and I absolutely
love the chaos; I've had some pretty interesting jobs including
writing disability policy for the White House, writing
international drug policy for the DEA, and my current gig catching
bad guys for a federal law enforcement agency; cooking is one of my
passions and I love trying new and exotic ingredients and recipes;
books are my first love; I think Aaron Sorkin is a brilliant writer
and I love almost everything he has written even though I agree
with very little of it; and there are very few things on my
must-have list when it comes to a potential match, but kindness is
one of them.
If any of the above sounds interesting, please reach out--I would
love to talk to you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking advantage of my positively charmed life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, making friends, being adventurous, dancing, and being the
coolest aunt ever.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My style. I am pretty brave in my wardrobe and hair choices.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I could never choose a favorite book because there are just too
many of them (books are one of my passions and I am a hopeless
collector of them), but I love history books, biographies, classic
literature, and the occasional cheap beach read.
My favorite movies have Cary Grant or Gene Kelly in
them--Philadelphia Story, Topper, An American in Paris--but I love
movies so there are very few that I absolutely won't watch (except
for slasher flicks).
I love live theater and dance performances, as well as live music,
but prefer smaller venues to over-produced big-budget shows (Green
Day will always be the exception to this rule).
I don't know that I can choose a favorite food either, but
certainly the list would include bacon, kale, beets, kabobs,
cheeses, seasonal vegetables, oranges right off the tree during
citrus season, curries (Indian, Thai, you name it), BBQ and
chocolate chip cookies. I am the child of an amazing baker (my
mother) and a former BBQ restaurant owner/cook (my father) and from
my childhood we have spent much of our time together as a family in
the kitchen. Brunch is probably (definitely) my favorite meal.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, my kitchen, books, optimism and a good laugh
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether or not my pet turtle, Shaggy, shares my taste in at-home
entertainment. If not, he has probably been super bored for nearly
Also, walking el Camino de Santiago someday.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
You never know with me. I love dancing and live music, the theater,
doing dinner and a movie with friends, heading out of town or, from
time to time, spending a night in all by myself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a pretty enthusiastic (and verbose) talker and
conversationalist, but then, if you've made it this far into my
profile, you have figured this out already.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I have said something in this profile that makes you believe we'd
mesh even better in person. Or if you know who the Oneders are.
