Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a gypsy at heart. Well, not only at heart but largely in real
life as well. I am a jumbled mess of different cultures, multiple
languages and diametrically opposed choices in terms of education
and profession. I feel at home (almost) everywhere and nowhere
(guess that's the reason I fit in well in New York). I've had this
weird feeling of sensing both a feeling of belonging and of being a
guest in one and the same place ever since my first day at
kindergarden. I could easily live in a tree as long as it is where
the people I care for are.
There is a part of me that's looking for kindred spirits and like
minded people with whom to make a connection. At the same time it
is also looking for the unlike minded to be stimulated by and to
learn new things from. More than anything it is looking for those
who are curious and sincere and willing to be open and share what
they think ...
and express what they feel and act on their instincts ...
and feed their hungers and quench their thirsts ...
and scratch their itches ...
and are into random acts of kindness ...
and into not judging a book by its cover ...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
There is also a part of me that isn't looking because it is busy
doing the best it can at just living life ... at the moment quite a
lot of it is taken up by being a filmmaker and helping storytellers
tell their stories.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring things out in a pinch.
Giving advice on the few things I know something about and
accepting advice on the many things I don't.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my eyes and my propensity to gesticulate (blame it on the
mediterranean in me)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book wise 100 Years of Solitude and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle
Maintenance are two of my favourite books. Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
Isaac Asimov and Douglas Adams are some of my favourite authors ...
and if you are into the work of Hugo Pratt, Moebius, Milo Manara
and Enki Bilal chances are we will have lots to talk about.
Film wise it's a long list and given that I help make them it's an
even longer conversation but Mindwalk is a film that made a big
impression on me, Love and Death to me is possibly the funniest
film ever and The Stoning of Sharaya M should in my opinion be seen
by everyone ... and so should Never Let Me Go.
Music wise Blues, Blue Grass, Cumbia, Zydeco, Flamenco to name a
few ... mostly anything acoustic ... preferably with lots of
percussion and multiple harmonies in the vocals ... One in
Blue Man Group, Fuerza Bruta and ANYTHING by Cirque Du Soleil
Food wise ... Uff ... I like (almost) everything. Except for lamb,
intestins and anything bland. Overall I tend to skew more towards
the "simple but well prepared" than to the "high end but have to go
get a falafel after dinner because I'm still hungry". I am (very)
fond of spicy food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
playing guitar (albeit poorly and not in public)
the ocean ... any ocean
a good nap ... ideally in hammock ... but even not in one
those I truly care about
holding hands ... and kissing ... either or both ... for hours on
... and nutella (unless you're allergic to nuts)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
life, the universe and everything ... and where I could have
possible misplaced one of my two passports
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... aren't you ? ... but otherwise catching up with that one thing
that on that particular friday night desperately needed to be
caught up with ... most probably to the detriment of a substantial
amount of other things that also would have desperately needed to
be caught up with but that on that particular friday night drew the
short end of the stick ... But hopefully figuring out something
interesting to do with you on the earliest next friday night ... or
saturday afternoon ... or monday morning ... or thursday lunch ...
or tuesday tea time ...
This being said I could also very well be taking a nap ...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
... is that if I barked up your tree you are barking back even if
it is just to say "wrong tree"
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you feel like a little walk, a little dance, a little food and a
lot of daydreaming and see what happens ... even if you are
allergic to nuts ... push comes to shove I'll survive without
