I'd say I am a really down to earth person. I try to keep it real
and value my sense of humor, which is on the sarcastic side, so
you'll have to appreciate humor and not take yourself too
I love to try new things and travel (yes I know everyone Loves to
travel)! I've been fortunate enough to have some amazing
opportunities in my life such as helping to build an orphanage in
Kenya, climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge, living and working on
health and human rights In Haiti and rocking out the Peace Corps in
Togo West Africa. I wouldn't be the person I am today if not for
these experiences. So I want to continue traveling for the rest of
my life with a companion just as adventurous as myself.
I want to take advantage of the city and all its wonders. I love to
sit in the park and people watch, guessing where they are from and
what language they speak (anthropology degree may have something to
do with my fascination with people and cultures). If you speak
French, even better, let's practice!
What I’m doing with my life
I have my Master's in Public Health and I currently work at a
private foundation in the public health program, making health and
human rights grants. The amount of money one person has baffles my
When I'm not working or at yoga I'm with friends meeting for dinner
or drinks, seeing a movie or most likely reading.
I’m really good at
Being sarcastic, making people laugh...also I think I am amazing at
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair or my eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading is a passion of mine, mostly fiction these days so I can
escape the heaviness of reading about health disparities all day!
Some favorite include: The Alchemist, Siddhartha, The brief
wondrous life of Oscar Waoz, How to loose her, Interpreter of
Maladies, Three cups of tea, Haiti Noir, Darma Bums etc. etc. I
have a long commute I read a ton!
Food: anything and everything, I love food and trying new things! I
am huge carnivore so vegan/vegetarians beware! Thai, Indian, sushi,
Ethiopian, mexican, burgers.. This is making me hungry!
Music: hip hop, blues, r&b, jazz, indie, Bastille, Sia, Birdie,
Miike Snow, The Beatles, Pheonix, Jose Gonzalez..
The six things I could never do without
Wine, my cell phone, my friends, googlemaps, coffee, a good
whiskey, meat (vegans and vegs need not apply).
All luxuries I guess I could live without and have before
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My family and friends, Health and Human Rights, science, the
developing world, social/ethnic/racial injustice, improving myself,
and helping others
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie, reading, having dinner or drinks with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once got stuck in an athletic top that was too small and almost
had to cut myself out! I'm actually on this site b/c if it happens
again I need someone to get me out!
You should message me if
You are someone who is not afraid to try something new and is
adventurous. If you are looking for someone to have fun and laugh
with, to have great conversation with and you're honest and not
into playing games or one night stands.
