My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am creative, I am an educator, I am a social scientist, I am a martial artist and I truly love what I do. At times I have to sit back and smile at how lucky I am. Though doing so while giving an exam tends to make one appear a bit sadistic.

My career path has taken me to remote desert villages in the Jordanian Al Naqab (Negev) desert to work with the Bedouin and to Bangkok to work with a human rights NGO and the UN. These opportunities allowed me to explore the surrounding countries/cultures and enlighten my perceptions of the world and the people around me.

I learned to cook elaborate meals and enjoy zoning out, listening to music and cooking a Massaman Curry, a traditional Phad Thai from scratch or inventing a new salad.....ooooh and by the way I LOVE Thai food....especially the spicy stuff.

I grew up in a close knit feminist family in which I learned that gender roles are merely social suggestions and not rules. My grandmother was a world champion athlete and spent her life destroying gender norms and teaching her daughters to do the same, she is one of the biggest inspirations in my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have attained two of my three dream jobs and am still working on the last (it is very possible to do all three at the same time):
- For the past year I have enjoyed teaching an academic discipline that I am deeply passionate about. The "ahhh haaa" moments I see in my students empower this passion. This passion has served me well as I have just been promoted to regular faculty and am closing in on tenure.
- For the second one, I was recently cleared to start teaching Wing Chun Kung Fu on my I just have to find a time/place to do so. Again with the love for Ahhh haa moments
- And I am also attempting to fulfil my ultimate, although slightly unrealistic, dream of being a fiction writer (though my graduate thesis won the thesis of the year perhaps not so unrealistic....I swear I am more humble than this....or perhaps just quietly arrogant).
- And as my having a profile on OKcupid would suggest, looking for some romance.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
cooking, writing (though not spelling or grammer), teaching, swimming, martial arts (Wing Chun and Maui Thai), mountain biking, empithizing, imagining/creativity and critical thinking.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
time to write, chocolate, curry, martial arts, mountain bike, music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
social issues, inequality, writing, teaching, martial arts....what to make for dinner....and more recently to what degree does enculturation vs. biology influence our gender roles/behavior, especially within the context of relationships.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Considering how much I love my work and the fact I only have to be at the school to teach 14 hours a week I have no typical Friday, but on days that could be considered "Friday" I would probably be making some sort of Thai food and watching a movie or favorite TV show or spending time with friends....though on actual Friday I am usually training martial arts, unless something more a date...comes up
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love "chick flicks"
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are a nice person looking for a nice person and you are NOT super judgmental of others, arrogant or want to make me feel bad for every horrible thing (some) men have done to women (I already do) me I know better than most.....discrimination and oppression are very common and important topics in my field/career and countering discrimination and oppression are the reasons I chose my field/career. Furthermore, with my aunts, grandmother and mother...seeing women as anything other than equals was never really an I am sorry, but it was not me.
