Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
NOTE: Please stop sending me messages that just say 'Hey' and
shirtless pics of yourself;)
I like spontaneity, and stability -- am both adventuresome and
grounded. I communicate and am a good listener (on most topics,
that is). I hold doors open -- for you, and others.
For the past eighteen years, I've been largely focused on building
a company. In a niche industry, we are considered one of the best.
Most of the staff say they plan to stay until retirement; that’s my
favorite part. And I'm still finding it fun and interesting.
Now that my company is well established, I have time and freedom to
be the best partner I can be.
Bring it on.

office and part-time residence in Brooklyn (where I go to
frequently), and an office in Buenos Aires. (We have an occasional
office in Black Rock City, but people keep turning it into
I value my friendships a lot. Am very close with my family -- talk
with my Dad most nights, riff with my sister about her latest OKC
date, helped my Mom write her first book.
I'm happy. Overall, optimistic. About the state of the world;
concerned but definitely optimistic. A bit Jewish, a bit Buddhist,
and love Christmas.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Disco. Math. Not necessarily in that order.
Recently, I officiated the wedding ceremony for two of my best
friends, which was my fifth time officiating. Fun gig.

I'm short -- 5'4''.
Confident, warm and engaging (my sister says this is because I have
a Leo rising; I don't totally get how that works, but okay).

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are smart, sassy, sweet, petite, sensual, fun, funny, creative,
spontaneous, responsible — though maybe a little irreverent. Some
do-gooder, some professional savvy, some artistic
(I’ve been told by pragmatic friends and parents that perhaps my
wishlist is too long. I don’t think so. Right? In fact.. while
we’re at it...)
You enjoy progressive thought and culture, but don't take any of it
too seriously. You're excited to build partnership, home, and
family, even though you still love a good adventure (party-parties,
travel). You love work and play. And naps.
