My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Short version: Looking for someone athletic, health-conscious, *outdoorsy*, family & community oriented, that also has a creative & artistic soul..

Please be "spiritual", healthy, & self-motivated in these ways.

Likes dance music and hiking around, being active outdoors is a plus.

Must be willing to consider living outside of NYC. I'm originally from the South, & I love the sun, so I'd say - a place like Austin, North Carolina, or abroad somewhere... would be great :)

Me: Have got some entrepreneurial energy & an adventurous spirit going into 2014.... Interested in Chinese Medicine (TCM), teaching qigong & yoga, life coaching, & finally - keeping music in my life. (see below)

- -

Truth be told, I love staying in at home - being quiet, reading/researching on & off the internet, practicing music, working on various projects... spending time outdoors during the day.

But am also not averse to going out & being social here & there... for coffee, tea, yoga, dancing, dinner, wine bar, comedy, jazz, brazilian music, indian music, techno, hiking, biking, sailing, skiing, rooftop parties, traveling, networking - etc.

Definitely want more community in my life, & am working towards creating that.

Am very much into living the healthiest life possible. Obsessed with the outdoors & living 'close to nature'. I love small-batch artisanal stuff, & may want to do the whole off-grid thing one day? Near a city, hopefully.. for the best of both worlds.

I love plants, want to learn more about them. I try not to drink a bunch. (maybe once a week average, many weeks not at all)

I grew up really Christian in the South (Virginia) & lately have been coming to terms with how much that shaped me... & how I find a comfort in coming back to it somewhat, on my own terms... That said, I always had "Yankee" influences in my life too, & lived out West for years (Austin, LA, Seattle) - so I'm kind of a regional hybrid.

Studied abroad & have traveled internationally by myself. Speak a healthy smattering of the Latin languages. Have achieved a pretty nice fluency in Spanish (worked as a translator), & now am focused more on Portuguese.

I've always dreamed of a great romance, & - it's been a long journey, but nowadays am feeling optimistic that it's possible, even probable, to find it...!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The above. Gradually studying yoga, qigong & related disciplines & combining them into an entrepreneurial teaching & coaching practice. Gradually learning more about plants, lay herbalism & fermentation.

Also figuring out how to best fit/keep/deepen music in my life. My current slow but ongoing project is a fusion of Brazilian music (MPB) & 'sound healing' concepts. A little bit of opera practice here & there for vocal training purposes... Guitar. Rhythm-oriented. I DJ'ed once too (see pictures!), it was super fun.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
:-) smiling - appreciating silence - having deep conversations - being imaginative & silly
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People say I have "beautiful eyes" & "a great smile". I've been told I look young for my age & have "presence". Have been told that I'm always smiling, though I do not necessarily feel like this is the case......... Have been told I'm hard to read, at times... & also 'sweet' :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: non-fiction mostly
movies: documentary films mostly - though i used to watch a lot of foreign ones
shows: absolutely fabulous
music: brazilian, eastern european, techno, deva premal for yoga - really into above and beyond, 'emotionally intelligent trance' all of a sudden! (as of november 2013)
food: healthy, herbal infusions, green smoothies, interesting fermented goodness
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
dark leafy greens
some form of movement meditation (yoga, tai chi, samba, dancing)
a means of self-expression
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
. space . & time.... how not to waste energy, the best way to be in this life, this world...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
maybe staying in, maybe going out... maybe working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a deeply spiritual person, & have had experiences of 'energy', etc.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Someone into nature, natural living, who's a little artsy too... down to earth... I think that's my 'ideal'! Someone who is funny, challenging, smart, sweet, good-hearted, family-oriented... & also has a sense of the artisanal - ? (I read a story recently about a couple who fell in love contemplating the sediment structure of a bowl of miso...)

Highly interested in & curious about the world. Healthy, exercises - eats mostly organic, some vegetables, etc - is pretty important.

Responsible, plans, shows up on time, has good boundaries - that old fashioned stuff is important. Character, I guess is the word. Believes in working on themselves, communicating at a high level.

Wants a relationship with the right person, & to make it a priority.

Finally, I do well with 'goofy' - ie: a sense of joy, imagination. I've noticed that just talking & talking doesn't cut it for me. At some point in interactions I need to take a break from the talking & just... relax, let go... look around, enjoy the silence... or laugh, play...
