Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I LIKE: idle banter, dancing, laughing & making others laugh,
TED talks, Radiolab, NPR, vanilla protein shakes with banana and
peanut butter, brutal honesty, pleasant surprises, live music,
local/global travel, culture (MoMA, Met), writing poetry, travel,
coding (building stuff that matters).
I AM: A passionate, assertive, risk taker, who lives in the moment
and loves telling fun stories. I have the curiosity of an 8 year
old, the responsibilities of a 40 year old and the desire to have
fun of a 16 year old. My random knowledge of psychology,
technology, science gives me a sometimes nerdy vibe.
PET PEEVES: Negativity, arrogance, selfishness.

Dancing. Spelunking. Killing bugs/spiders that have unlawfully

conversation with strangers, or on a first date.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

You are not afraid of speaking your mind. Communication is the
heart of a successful relationship. I am pretty intuitive, but I
haven't mastered mind reading yet :)
Bonus points if you are intellectual, artistically talented, or you
want to change the world, or feel it is important to give back.
