I am a driven and independent person, who spends more time working
than i should. i like yoga, i sew, i like running and rock
climbing, i am a scrapbooker (it's the midwesterner in me), i'm
trying to learn spanish, i like to travel, and i have a dog that i
adore. i am kind and generous and loyal to those who deserve my
What I’m doing with my life
I'm enjoying life and trying to learn something new every day. For work, I do research on sexual decision-making, with an eye towards increasing sexual self-awareness and communication. In my tiny bit of spare time (thinking about sex is a lot of work), I'm exploring my new city (philly).
I’m really good at
Keeping in touch
talking to strangers (again, it's the midwesterner in me)
Thrift store/stoop sale shopping
The first things people usually notice about me
my laugh. it's distinctive.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: anything Barbara Kingsolver or John Steinbeck, Modoc, The
Art of Racing in the Rain, The Book Thief, The Time Traveler's
Wife, How Children Succeed and lots and lots of others. I am a
voracious reader of both fiction and non-fiction. I just started
reading Sex at Dawn and The Ethical Slut.
Movies: i know all of the words to Dazed and Confused; also love
Moulin Rouge, Man on Wire, Big Fish, American Beauty, Shawshank
Redemption, and others i can't remember. I enjoy movies but don't
watch many of them because i sometimes lack the attention to focus
for that long.
Music: too much to name. i love Manu Chao, Mumford & Sons,
Avett Brothers, Cesaria Evora, Talking Heads, Pink, Tribe Called
Quest, Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco, Sublime, Johnny Cash, Dolly
Parton, First Aid Kit, and so so much more but those choices give a
sense of the range.
Food: anything. okay, so not anything, but i love food. i try to
limit the amount of meat I eat and, when i do eat meat, i try to be
sure that it's organic. i LOVE beer. i'd like to learn how to brew
The six things I could never do without
my friends and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
all of the things i want to learn and do in my life and how i wish
there was more time.
On a typical Friday night I am
meeting up with friends and/or co-workers for happy hour, then
headed out to dinner or home to veg after working too much during
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm not vanilla...
You should message me if
you can rock climb with me
you can make me laugh
