Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After city-hopping around the East Coast for several years
(DC-->Boston-->Philly), I moved to SF. I've been here 5 years
now and I can't imagine living anywhere else. Life is pretty close
- Grew up in Delaware (cue the Wayne's World reference)
- I LOVE to travel and made it to all 7 continents in my 20s. But
still so many places left to see!
- I was an electrical engineering major in college, though I've
ended up in an entirely different field. Closet nerd for
- My Myers-Briggs type is ESTJ
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a manager at a large health care organization and I'm amazed
how much I love my job - even 5 years into it. (I've had enough
jobs to know how rare that is). Outside of work, some of my
favorite ways to spend time include gym, yoga, reading, farmers
markets, cooking and exploring the city/Bay area. A few things I've
crossed off my bucket list recently: 10-day silent meditation
retreat and yoga teacher training.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- remembering random details about other people's lives
- being low-maintenance (e.g. I own very few pairs of shoes)
- keeping things in perspective
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books- I am a huge reader. SO hard to pick a favorite. Atul
Gawande's newest book might be top of my list right now. I would
love to hear your book recommendations, I am always trying to add
to my Kindle queue.
TV- Don't watch much these days. Big fan of Pardon The Interruption
on ESPN and The Daily Show.
Food- I generally just love food, the spicier the better!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Besides the obvious (friends and family, etc):
1. Time to myself
2. My journal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Reflecting on how lucky I am and remembering to appreciate all the
little things in life.
Also, where/when I might go on my next trip. My short-term travel
wish list includes South Africa and New Zealand. Tips welcome!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
heading to happy hour downtown to catch up with friends, then
coming home at a decent hour to decompress.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been keeping a journal on my computer since I was 18 and it
is over 4,000 pages long (single spaced, size 12 font). Yes I
ramble - but it spares other people having to listen to it :)
