My self-summary
I love how cooking/sharing a meal can create great conversation and I have established some of my best friends this way.
I work as a therapist and Autism specialist. Trying to remain passionate while also doing the best job I can do.
I grew up near Boston but fell in love with the valley during my undergraduate program at Umass.
I value my friendships as much as any other type of relationship in my life- perhaps some would call this my "chosen family"
I always seem to rationalize why taking another class will be beneficial so have become a perpetual student.
I would love to open a cafe or restaurant some day where all types of folks work and create community
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out the next steps.....
Spending time with friends
Going on adventures with my pup
Cooking yummy food, especially with food from my farm share
Appreciating 'the moment' and time to relax
Focusing on me and where I want to be
I’m really good at
Understanding people, listening, communicating and good conversations, keeping a planner up to date, cooking, and laughing

The six things I could never do without
Books, coffee, whiskey, post-it notes, friends, and road trips

But also, alone time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- my new puppy!
-The universe, interpersonal dynamics, sexuality/gender, how I can be the best at my job, how I can be the best me without my job
-Making a to do list
-How to save money so I can travel to all the places I want to see
- sex
-what I would keep in my tiny house
-how to make people happy
-what it means to be queer
On a typical Friday night I am
Having good conversations with friends, sometimes over drinks
Or watching something good on Netflix
Or reading
Or cooking
Or singing and dancing out at a bar
Or in a book store
Or driving around, maybe to a new place
Or hosting game night (I love board games!)
You should message me if
You'd like to meet up for a drink or coffee.

I tend to be interested in more masculine of center folks. I also find good conversation and intelligence to be very attractive.
