My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Entering my third year here in LA...moved from the Bay what now seems long ago to a land I grew up hating on and now secretly admit to liking (but don't tell anyone up North...).

I am a warm loving woman who loves to travel (i've lived in Israel and Mexico), am blessed with incredible friends and believe in the power of education. I love hiking, exploring great restaurants and wine bars, the Bay air, being silly and serious, intense political conversations followed by releasing good dumb fun reality tv shows...Most of all, looking for people who are real, grounded, and want to adventure.

I am loving, expressive, and tend to tell it like it is.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as an education researcher on a national initiative to reform mental health care in our schools.

Spend a lot of time thinking and discussing death, trauma, resilience, healing, and care-giving.

Trying to figure out what life in LA can be like after finishing school last year (for which I relocated from my beloved San Francisco).

I am a yogini, great book store discover-er, red wine drinker, food & culinary enjoyer and cooker, conscious social justice-er, avid This American Life/The Moth/Invisibilia/On Being/TEDTalks listener, traveler, cross cultural explorer, handstand admirer, and more.

I take pride in my bookshelf. Some people go into people's medicine cabinets. I analyze folks by the books in their home.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Throwing together last minute dinners, working with teenagers, Taboo, flexible yoga positions, being family, being addicted to coffee, loving, sarcasm, thinking creatively, and doing way too much all the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Laughter, positive energy, and eyes and lips :)

If I'm talking, my entire body is involved. So there's that, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Nikki Giovanni, Neruda, Rilke, Delpit, Neruda, Etgar Keret, Studs Terkel, Anzaldua, Audre Lorde, Cornel West...

Father G & Jorja Leap's books will give you a really good idea about what moves my heart and feet.

Now reading Americanah by Ngozi Adichie. It's beautiful.

(Just got published in Rick Ayers' new book. So that's exciting.

Hammocks, strong Peets coffee, the sound of the New York Times landing on the steps Sunday morning, the feeling of my body after yoga, the smell of just cut grass, how San Francisco looks after a good rain, fall leaves, the smell of challah in the oven...

City Lights bookstore...Marin Headlands (or anywhere with redwood trees)...Grabbing a brew and watching the sun go down...Firewood pizzerias...Farmer's Markets...Zacatecas in Mexico...the North of Israel...Crissy fields walks...

Music: Rhye, Beck, Yuna, London Grammar, D'Angelo, Jessie Ware, MisterWives, Goapele, Janelle Monáe, Solange, Lauryn Hill, John Legend, Kanye, Common, Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, India.Aire, Julieta Venegas, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Ray LaMontagne, José González, Van Morrison, Pac, The Roots, Erykah, Kelis, Banks, and more.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-My family and the abundant deep friendships in my life
-Laughter
-Really, really good food.
-When I find myself smiling unknowingly
-Earrings
-Moments of pause & grounding
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-means to the ends and ends to the means
-My friends and family
-To-do lists
-Education inequities
-How to be conscious of life's blessings---the balance between being present and being driven in my vision of the future
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wherever I need to be to come down from the week: a bar, Shabbat dinner, with friends, curled up to a movie, at temple, at a cultural event, or dreaming of travel plans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't burp. True story.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a loving, warm, family-dedicated, educated, dry, witty, beautiful man who wants the best of himself to shine through a kickass partnership.

Also, I should warn that I am usually attracted to men who are tall, burly, and strong-hearted. If you don't have "the gym" listed as one of your six things, all the better. If you have a tendency to be attracted to strong willed women who have a solid sense of self and aren't threatened by that but are even more turned on, even better.
