Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
l'm a traveler and adventure seeker at heart, though
responsibilities seem to get in the way of me giving into that part
of myself lately. I would love to spend a few months backpacking
and volunteering around SE Asia in the next year or 2 (want to come
with?), but in the meantime I try to be a tourist in my own
backyard. The Twin Cities really have a lot to offer in terms of
music, art and food. I love camping and am incredibly excited that
spring has finally arrived - can't wait to break out the tent and
get out of the city.
I'm pretty easy to get along with. Laid back, but passionate when
passion is called for. I'm sarcastic, sometimes to a fault.
Compassion, courage, and authenticity are things I admire and try
I had a short lived career in my 20's working as a political and
union organizer, but in the end it just wasn't for me. Incredibly
rewarding at times, but draining. I currently work in finance (It's
not ideal, but I'm not complaining), and plan to eventually head
back to school to pursue a journalism degree. I'm also making small
strides towards starting my own business.
I live on Eat Street with a roommate. It's a great
I can cook well, most of the time.
I like to listen to NPR and drink coffee (or sometimes Bloody
Marys) on Sundays.
I smoke cigarettes on occasion. It's a horrible habit and I plan to
quit, but am not looking for someone who nags (too much) about
I think about joining a gym. Haven't yet. I'm always up for a bike
ride or run in the non-winter months, though.
Ok, there's a lot more, just ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it, and always trying to do that well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I watch a lot of documetaries.
As far as music goes, my library is vast and varied. Sometimes I
listen to the Current, other times I'm blaring a jazz, classical or
opera Spotify station.
I love to eat/cook and will try almost anything. Spicy is good. So
is bacon. Picky eaters annoy me, but that's certainly something I
could overlook. ;-)
I just finished reading The Art of Power by Thich Nhat Hanh, a
Buddhist monk and activist. I'm currently reading Plato's The
Republic for a free online class offered by Yale.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
