.cixelsyd yrev ma I ( I am very dyslexic.)
So you will have to excuse any spelling mistakes and/or grammar mistakes.
I am a highly creative, visual person and verbal. I have to keep my hands busy. I have a bachelors of fine art, sculpture and I work as a personal chef. I've lived in San Francisco since '99 but my family has been in San Francisco since my great grandmother came here from Italy at 14 (by herself!) in 1904.
I'm highly social and I love dynamic conversation. I'm not great at small talk; I like to go deep pretty quickly. Although I can come across as calm and relaxed, I have a lot of physical energy that I need to burn off through running, hiking with my Boston terroir, Zipper, dancing, climbing, etc.
I like venues that are conducive to conversation and serve tasty things. I'm light hearted, and I think laughter is important to happiness. I have to be with someone who can have long intellectual conversations or make jokes about the absurdity of the world around them. I have a self deprecating sense of humor. Intellect and a balanced sense of self are important to me. I exercise, eat right and take care of my mental health most of the time.
Painting when I have a spare moment.
Learning new things. I crave knowledge.
Working on my garden.
Getting along with the other weird kids.
Cooking with those random bits left over from clients.
Climbing poles or trees or whatever is taller than me.
Though my taste in film has evolved, I can't help but name my childhood favorites: Princess Bride, Labyrinth, and The Goonies.
The City of Ember. I loved that it was a Sci-fi film focused on people rather than special effects. And Bill Murray was great.I lovedThe Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. The Son of Rambow, Mary and Max, Pans Labyrinth, City of Lost Children, Ma Vie En Rose, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Short Bus, Delicatessen. The Birdcage, To Wong Foo..., The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Crying Game, Orange is the New Black, Californication, Game of Thrones,
David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Caro Emerald, The Prodigy, Lady Gaga, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Daft Punk, Fred Astaire, Smashing pumpkins, STP, Electro Swing, George Clinton, James Brown. I have diverse musical interests, it really just depends on my mood. Any thing that I can dance to.
I have a sweet tooth so desserts are great! Pies, cookies or chocolate.
As far as savory food, I like anything that is well prepared. I will try anything, really. I was at a Persian restaurant with a Persian friend and tried tongue, which was actually really yummy. I like most "ethnic" foods, Persian, Ethiopian, Cambodian, Moroccan. A friend of mine just went to Vietnam and ate Cobra and loved it. Now I can't wait to try it. I am usually poring over a cookbook or two so this changes too often to stay current. I go through phases where I am trying to get the process down for something. So I will go a week or two making hand made pasta or pizza or braising or what ever has caught my fancy.
Cook books: Alfred Portale, Simple Pleasures, Jerusalem A Cook book, Eat this book by Tyler Florence, The Flavar Bible.
I love art books. In terms of fiction, I enjoy 70's science fiction such as Isaac Asimov and Robert A. Heinlein. Lately any thing about color, pigments and light for painters.
What recipe from work I should make next, I think about this all the time because I work as a personal chef.
How the brain works and what creates chemistry between certain people. I'm curious about how relationships form and I enjoy figuring out what makes people tick. It seems many people generate opinions of people based on looks or other superficial factors, but I like to scratch the surface to see what's really there.
While sitting in my hot tub I think about what the next stage of my garden is going to be.
Hosting or attending a dinner party.
Seeing a movie with friends.
Getting dressed up and going to a costume party.
Reading about how light and color work and having my mind blown.
...you like to dress up (in costume or just in general.)
...you want to go out for a drink.
....you are comfortable meeting face to face relatively quickly. I'm better with face to face contact than written communication, though I'm happy to make the effort. (I'm dyslexic so it does take some effort to write lengthy emails...)
...you take an active interest in your own growth and evolution.
You are passionate and driven about something, it doesn't matter what.
...you assert your strong opinions and are ok with me doing the same. I want an egalitarian relationship.
...you approach new things with a sense of adventure and an open mind.
...you consider the city (any major city) to be your permanent home. I love visiting the great outdoors, I just don't want to live there.
