My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Principles that I try to live by: 1) be impeccable with your word, 2) don't take anything personally, 3) don't make assumptions and 4) always do your best. I've found that those 4 principles drastically reduce drama and disappointment in my life. I love my life, am fairly independent, and a bit unconventional. I like to live in the present and i hope you do too. I enjoy creating, have somewhat of a minimalist viewpoint, am open-minded and try not to take life or myself too seriously. I would like to find someone similar who has his own set of interests, values his independence and yet would like someone to share some new and fun experiences with. I'm not necessarily looking for someone to be "the one" but if a relationship begins to grow into something more, that would be great.

I have an MBA from the university of chicago and a BA in psychology from UCLA. I worked in Marketing/ Business Strategy in the corporate world for a number of years and then stayed home to raise my two boys. Currently i enjoy the freedom and flexibility of freelance bookkeeping and creating textile art on the side.

I love to travel to both new and familiar places near and far. I have been to Java, Sumatra and Bali, Peru, Japan, Nova Scotia, Italy, and Mexico. I would love to explore some of these places again as well as some new places with someone who shares a passion for travel to places off the beaten track.

If any of this resonates with you and your looking for something fun/low key and letting the relationship grow organically, I'd love to hear from you. Have a great day and good luck finding who you're looking for.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living in the moment as much as I can and doing what makes me feel good. Creating in many forms is an important part of my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trusting my intuition, clearing clutter and organizing people's homes, breaking large projects into small actionable tasks, being intuitive and recognizing patterns, not worrying or sweating the small stuff, being flexible and resourceful in a creative way, making things happen, doing nothing, being optimistic, and bringing levity to situations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes and probably the mandala tattoo on my wrist.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like to read non-fiction, primarily books on personal growth (abraham hicks, Miguel ruiz, eckhart tolle), humor books by Tina Fey, David Sedaris, Dave Barry, Jon Stewart and fiction by Joyce Carol Oates, Pearl S. Buck, Jane Austen, Amy Tan, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I always have about 6 books going at the same time. As for movies, I like primarily comedies, but also suspense thrillers, indies, documentaries, and foreign films. Pulp Fiction, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Scott Pilgrim, Benny and Joon, Little Miss Sunshine, Chocolat, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, galaxy quest, Paul, shall we kiss, The emperor's new groove, lost in translation, the libertine, raise the red lantern, are a few I can think of off the top of my head. I don't really like TV but I will occasionally watch episodes of: archer, portlandia, south park, orange is the new black, downton abbey, the blacklist, the office, parks and recs. Right now I cant get enough of Louie CK (his standup, not so much his tv show), Bill Burr, john oliver, john mulaney. In music I'm listening to Pandora worldbeat, pink martini, trip hop, down tempo, Buddy Guy, Kasabian, aretha Franklin, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Beta Bend, Thievery Corporation, Gospel Claws, Zero 7 and Henry Binns, Gipsy Kings, Ottmar Liebert, Liquid Soul, some Gorillaz, some disco. Depends on my mood and what I'm doing.
I love Thai, Indian, Japanese, Indonesian, Peruvian, and Ethiopian food, healthy/fresh, vegetarian. Any kind of fusion is fun too. Not a steak person but I will eat seafood. Probably not ever going to like lamb or goat. Just sayin...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My connection to Source/God/Oneness, whatever you want to call it, would be the only thing I couldn't do with out. Other things are my kids (although i dont consider them things), being in the sun, dark chocolate, nature, fresh water that tastes good, all forms of intimacy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who I am, how everything is connected and what makes me feel good/happy. I also spend a lot of time thinking about how to be a good role model for my boys and the balance between letting them learn from their mistakes and teaching them how not to make stupid mistakes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making something, going out for dinner, doing a jigsaw puzzle, hanging out with my kids or friends. I don't usually make plans, but just do whatever moves me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Even though I have sweet, wonderful kids, I often feel like I could have done a better job as a parent.
