understand about myself, my relationships, and the world around
I grew up in Taos, NM (do you ski?), traveled out east for college
(Amherst), then moved to Boston, DC, Barcelona, DC again, and now
live in amazing Ft. Greene, BK. I love the city and exploring all
the amazing things it has to offer and make it a point to visit new
neighborhoods, restaurants or bars each week. I love cooking,
although I don’t get to do it as much as I would like, and mostly
try out new recipes by experimenting with ingredients instead of
following a cookbook - let creativity, intuition, and fun lead the
way. I am a traveler - which may be the most common thing people
say on here - and while living in Barcelona traveled extensively in
Italy, Germany, and Ireland. I have also been to a few weddings in
Turkey and India so I love taking trips far and wide but also like
quick getaways in upstate New York to energize myself outside the
I naturally seek out deep relationship - with friends, co-workers,
romantic partners - so I spend a lot of time nurturing and growing
them. However, connecting with people I don't know, especially
those who have in depth knowledge on something I know little or
nothing about, is one of my favorite pastimes (and is partially
what I do for a living).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Each day I am able to surround myself with amazing people who are
in the business of making the world a better place. The
organization I founded helps people build startups, careers and
lives of purpose + impact through entrepreneurship education,
community building, and resource-sharing. I have found my path and
I'd like to share this world with someone who is just as passionate
about the people they meet and the things they create with them!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling stories that make people's stomachs hurt, holding hands in
a movie theater, making coffee, becoming best friends with dogs in
the park, making mashed potatoes (ask me about my mashed potato

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

2. Laughing with friends

5. Dark chocolate - for obvious reasons :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When I will get a chance to go back to Barcelona, the next season
of House of Cards, what is happening in the lives of all the people
I see in the mornings when I have my morning coffee on my fire
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working on a creative project in the early evening, then going out

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'd love to meet someone who has a sense of adventure, is excited
to try new things that takes them out of their comfort zone, and is
willing to challenge themselves personally and professionally. I am
extremely driven and would love to be with someone who is able to
match that energy and passion in both work and play. I want to
travel with someone - not just around the world but also a partner
who will enjoy the ups and downs of this crazy journey we call
life..and occasionally have an impromptu dance party with me along
