Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll keep it high-level since Textlation* is at pandemic levels.
The rest we can do in person.
I have purpose, a big heart (and welcoming personality**), possess
humility (and wit) and remain true to what I seek (it's important
to me you seek similar):
The cheese to my (or your) macaroni.
A real and deep connection.
I grew up in a large and modest catholic family in the Midwest
(Indianapolis). I flew the coop a long time ago and still always
prioritize several visits back each year to hang with framily
(family and friends); they're my roots and foundation.
The path from Indy: Bloomington --> Helsinki --> Charlotte
--> Indy --> Chicago --> San Francisco. Been in SF since
2000. Have spent a lot of time in New Orleans and Seattle too. They
all hold special places in my heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being successful “working to live” and “living to experience”
- Working with UX – UI – Design - Data as a Marketing Exec
- Appreciating cultures home and abroad.
- Urban hikes and bike rides.
- Having random realizations like “stars are just like
- Live shows (Les Bon Temps Roule!).
- Hanging in Mother Nature: rivers, lakes, oceans, mountains,
forests, snow and sand.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Interacting with people, being friendly (and social) to most
everyone (I do have my limits) AND being connected to the energy of
life over the ever-increasing focus on our digital lives.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm told "the people" appreciate my “welcoming energy."

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Remembering the past, staying present in the moment and thinking
about (and embracing) the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing something typical; you know, like, typical things people do
who live in San Francisco.

Clarifications from the author:
*Textlation (tekst-ley-shuhn): the misinterpretation of text
communication where playfulness and humor are lost in translation
due to lack of tone, inflection, facial expressions and-or eye brow
raises of the author.
**I can be described as:
Open-minded: curious, original and complex;
Conscientiousness: reliable, organized, and disciplined;
Extroverted: friendly, fun loving and sociable;
Agreeable: sympathetic, forgiving and courteous;
Non-neurotic: calm, relaxed and secure.
***Stars are just like us!
They drink coffee, go to the park, fly on airplanes and eat food?
Whew! I always wondered. I love playful banter which has led me to
working on creating the world's first sarcasm font. It’s gonna be
huge. HUGE I say :-P
