My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Alex. I'm originally from New York City (born and raised on the UWS!) but have spent the last decade or so moving around, including a couple of stints overseas in Latin America and Africa. I founded a social enterprise a year ago that allowed me to become location-agnostic and I'm thrilled to be in Denver now, enjoying a different pace of life and the beautiful scenery. I'm definitely more "country mouse" even though I come from an enormous city. I travel a lot and sometimes my schedule can be a problem for people. I leave frequently but I always come back... :)

I dream about living in a treehouse or a shack on the beach or in a camper van or a tiny house. I want to visit Easter Island and Bora Bora. I love to be hugged. I like petting dogs' soft ears. I can't walk past a lavender bush without touching it and smelling my hand. Fireworks and rainbows make me happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an international development consultant and my firm designs products and services for the poor, which means I travel a lot to Africa and Asia and Latin America. My work is definitely one of my passions and I feel grateful everyday that I get paid to do what I love and travel the world. Guests are always welcome to join me!

I love to ride bikes and play [competitive] volleyball and camp and make and eat delicious food. Send me to the mountains every week and I'm a happy girl. I am interested in Eastern spirituality but my personal meditation practice is pretty irregular. I do a lot of yoga and go to retreats to study with different teachers. I love to play games- we had a regular board game night back in NY that I'm already missing- and am always down for live music, especially if it's outside. I do miss being near open water and expect that vacations will be focused on getting to oceans and lakes...

One of the reasons I moved to Denver was to find that perfect balance between work and life. It's going well so far:) As a consultant, I set my own schedule, which means I get to head to the mountains any day of the week and take time off when I need/want it. It's a dream.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Airport navigation, accruing airline miles, making protein balls (yum!) and quinoa dishes, opening jars of things, building campfires, living a unique and authentic life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

A little of everything. Honestly.

Is "Spotify" an acceptable musical category? My life is enhanced because of that app without a doubt. Making Spotify playlists might be considered one of my hobbies. Bluegrass, electronic, indie bands (check out Governor's Ball 2013 and 2014 lineup and I probably like the band), soul, reggae, spiritual Indian music, etc.

I read mostly narrative non-fiction but am making more of an effort to get through my fiction pile in 2015. I also read a lot about yoga, spiritual teachers (old and new, human and archetypal) and meditation and some of that fun stuff. There's a lot of behavioral science and design books on my shelves- two disciplines I find fascinating and draw on heavily in my work. Some other authors: Kafka, Neruda, Adichie, Salinger, Pratchett, Roy. I've started listening to audiobooks when I travel and that's been an interesting game changer.

All Wes Anderson, most Coen Brothers, all Iñárritu films, Beasts of the Southern Wild, City of God, Labyrinth :), Y Tu Mama Tambien, Clue, Inside Man, ... Please don't make me watch Sascha Baron Cohen or new Adam Sandler movies. I just can't.

I love Indian and Thai, smoothies and fresh juices, picking wild berries and eating them fresh, mangoes and passion fruit by the beach, salt and vinegar chips, mussels and shrimp and freshly caught fish...

Broad City, The Wire, Silicon Valley, Arrested Development, The Affair, True Detective...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
passport, empathy, fresh fruit & veggies, sunshine, smiles, and my sunglasses

(Yes, that's seven things. I can count.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Getting a window seat, global poverty (sorry to be a downer but I literally think about this every day and what I can do to help solve the problem...), my dog who passed away earlier this year, how I should stop buying pickles and learn how to make them, making sure I continue to have lots of new adventures as frequently as possible, intimacy and love and sex and Tantra, the 60 or so countries I've already visited, the 130 or so countries I have yet to know!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I've had a couple of serious relationships over the last several years and have learned a ton about myself and what I'm looking for. I'm looking to laugh and share activities and have some adventures and travel together. I'm ready to invest the time and energy into a partnership that is loving and fun and supportive and brings out the best in both of us. I'm into deep connection- like soul-soul, not just body-body surface stuff. I'm certainly looking for a partner who isn't intimidated by a successful and intelligent woman (you should be confident in who you are!) and also wants to build a family and a balanced life together. Someone who is thoughtful and open and worldly and flexible and spiritual and fun. Someone willing to explore new ways of connecting with another person and ready and able to communicate feelings and needs. Someone who is seeking a higher truth or who is making some intentions towards spiritual growth. And someone who wants to tackle some 14ers together, go on a few adventures and live an interesting, active, healthy lifestyle together. Maybe that's you?
