Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Formerly nomadic, intellectually stimulating adventurer seeks same
for fun, love, and more. INFP. I find intelligence incredibly sexy
- sapiosexual anyone?
***Life update. It seems I may not be as formerly nomadic as I

Sept-July. So for August in NY my primary interest is in finding
folks to have drinks, laughs, and perhaps sex.***

I read a lot, and I like to seek out new adventures. A few fun

read trashy magazines.
- Three tattoos...not all of them are visible.
- I am a social justice educator, and do not believe we are in a
- Backpacking: my sport of choice.
Health and well-being are important to me. I take time for myself
to recharge, get outside as much as I can, and try to eat well. I
find tremendous good in spending time with animals, and there is
never a day where music does not play a role in my life.
My favorite thing to do is go backpacking. Bonus points if I don't
have to teach you...though I will teach you if you have never been.
