Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love sour gummy candy, hiking, eating outside, coconut milk
coffee creamer, classical music, dogs, biographies, sitting on my
porch, watching a good superhero movie, gin and tonic, spending an
entire day at a museum, sketching, game nights, and the list goes
I also love to travel (and travel a lot for work) and want my
partner to share this interest. I'm not into long days at the beach
unless there's a bbq involved. I've traveled a lot throughout South
America, but am eager to see Southeast Asia and more of Africa. I
also want to see more of the U.S., especially the Southwest (love
New Mexico's state question - 'red or green'). Chaco Canyon is one
of my favorite places....it's magical. A cross-country road trip

Some of my favorite movies are the Harry Potter series, the new
Star Treks, Indiana Jones, the Muppets classics and anything by
Pixar (I've seen 'Up' 5 times). I like a good super hero movie
As far as tv, I love retro shows (All in the Family, the Muppet
Show), Househunters International, and Chopped. For books, I love
the Percy Jackson and Harry Potter series, anything by Bill Bryson,
and historical fiction. Occasionally I like Jared Diamond.
And, I love Middle Eastern and Thai food and have a serious sweet
tooth! I'm hoping pie becomes the next dessert fad....And now that
Easter candy is in stores, I have lost all hope for my teeth.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
1.) Coffee (every morning, never fail)
2.) Gummy candy
3.) My instrument
4.) My passport
5.) My friends and family
6.) My white noise machine
