Partial to classic film, quality music, art, sailing, kayaking, swimming, traveling, yoga, cooking, reading, writing. Farmers markets, flea markets, antique shops, record shops... hanging out in nature, talking to animals.
Love my friends, my career, and this magical thing called life. But would like to share adventures and experiences (or even just drinks) with an interesting fella. Who happens to be adorable, funny and a great kisser.
Incurable coffee snob. Otherwise not at all snobby.
Oh and hell yeah, I'm vegan! I know this freaks many of you guys out. It shouldn't. It just means I love animals, the planet, and want to live a long healthy life. These are good things, no? So what if you're not vegan? You're like 99% of the world, and I dig my fellow humans. I don't rule people out if they're not just like me. We can all get along.
Despite the fact that I was born here I still smile at people I pass on the street. Guess you could say I'm a west coast soul in an east coast shell.
At some point I plan to be a west coast soul in a west coast shell.
A few of my best memories: Hitchhiking around England, sleeping in a field on Beachy Head, Venice Biennale, summer of nocturnal photography in Paris, sailing in the Caribbean, playing with miniature deer on Big Pine Key, eating pasta in Positano, swimming with sea turtles in the Virgin Islands, every taco in Austin, and any moment in San Francisco or the East Bay.
FYI my username has absolutely nothing to do with cats. If you know your rock and roll you'll get the reference.
In general, I like to think I'm helping the world become a better place.
I’m also recovering from a dancing related injury. So for the moment, I won't be meeting up for any extreme sports.

raising one eyebrow (not so much the other one)
keeping plants alive and well
trivia contests (minus the sports)
