My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well hello, thanks for stopping by. I'm a photo-taking, record collecting, Film Forum haunting, animal adoring, incurably optimistic, Anglophilic, semi-aquatic Brooklyn gal.

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 to find the less traveled parts of the usual places. And I always do, go me.

I'm an incurable coffee snob. Otherwise not at all snobby.

Please, for the love of Mike, don't panic when you see the word vegan over there>. It doesn't mean that I have a second head or that I will shove flax seeds in your mouth. Or blow up your fridge. Relax, just like I do with the knowledge that 98% of the world eats meat! If you need convincing that we can all get along, peruse this awesome article. http://www.choosingraw.com/how-to-date-a-vegan-without-really-trying/

A few of my best memories: Hitchhiking around England, sleeping in a field on Beachy Head, 2 weeks 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.

Want to help me continue the adventure? Sure you do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm finishing up my nutrition degree and will be certified by January 2015. I work part time at a nutrition website, I teach a nutrition workshop and see private clients. I also have a nutrition/food blog.

And in general, helping the world become a better place. Reading a lot. Cleaning up the parks & beaches. Photographing. Blogging. Research. Figuring out where to live next. Making exponential numbers of stellar friends.
Also a never ending cycle of: Dance, injure, heal, repeat. I know how to have a good time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
karaoke contests

various comical accents

grammar

hula hooping

raising one eyebrow (not so much the other one)

keeping plants alive and well

harmonizing

trivia contests (minus the sports)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most likely that I'm about 97% gams.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies:
Hitchcock, Kitchen Sink (british new wave,) screwball comedies (faves are Bringing up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, The Lady Eve, The Palm Beach Story) Noir, French New Wave,The Archers... basically all classic film.
And nearly anything British on the big or small screen, preferably in period costume.

Books: I heart reading. I prefer the non-fictional variety, but also have a big soft spot for classic lit (particularly British- big surprise there.) Recent reads include: (Fieldings') Tom Jones, The Unnatural History of the Sea, Agent Zigzag, Double Cross, Twelve Years a Slave, Under the Banner of Heaven, Just Kids. Lately I'm hooked on WW2 history.

Music: Some new music I dig: White Fence, The Allah-Las, Juan Wauters, The Above, The Mystery Lights. But I'm partial to the classic mod canon: The Small Faces, The Kinks, The Who, The Pretty Things, The Jam, Northern Soul, Garage, old blues. Also The Smiths, 90s Britpop, Led Zeppelin, Bowie, Old skool hiphop.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. movies
2. library card
3. my favorite Podcasts
4. nature
5. killer music
6. my soaker tub - my prized possesion.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Nowadays, I spend lots of time thinking about the Ride reunion in June. Basically just counting down the days! Also, whether I should go to London to see them twice on the tour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Seeing a gig, or some other shenanigans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My telomeres are longer than yours.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are successful at making people laugh, a lot. You're passionate about at least one thing. You have a conscience and use it. OR (and?) if you want to teach me to play an instrument. (except tambourine, I'm already killer at that.)

Full disclosure, I'm a teeny bit older than my profile says. I know, I know, but a couple years is the difference between getting messages from octogenarians and more age-appropriate people. My photos are current, fwiw. I'm proud of my years, but just trying to even out the pitfalls of online dating algorithms.
