I have been interested in many things. In my early twenties I was fascinated with the way cultural systems function and adapt. I went through a strong social justice phase (which still comes out to play every now and then). But I have always loved everything about film. First and foremost, while I am a reformed "film snob" I do still like to critique the acting, directing, cinematography, and script. However this doesn’t mean I can't enjoy a movie and find myself lost in it's magic. I like to read, especially before bed. I also now have a guilty pleasure of listening to audio books. They are great for public transit, road trips, and for walking around town. And I always enjoy listening to music especially old school jazz (think early Miles and Coltrane), independent Hip-Hop, R&B and Soul (but I pretty much listen to anything except mainstream country and metal).
I enjoy baking and cooking, especially when it is a new recipe or for a special occasion. Unfortunately the daily cooking isn’t always as enjoyable. Foodie is definitely a term that you could apply to me at moments! I really can appreciate fine cooking, a great pairings of ingredients and excellent technique when it comes to food and restaurants. I absolutely love NPR. (reference "things white people like") This is of course ironic considering as a child when my mom used to listen to it in the car I would have given my left arm for her to change it to the local popular radio station. I guess it seeped in some how. Some of my favorite programs are This American Life, The Moth Hour, Car Talk, Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, but I also love the way they deliver the news and that I always learn something new! I like to dance and enjoy the occasional night out for this purpose. I need my daily walks/runs with my dog and in turn need to have access to nature every once in a while! I used to live in Vermont and miss living in the woods. Now that I'm here in the bay area I'm finding new little sanctuaries.
I'm really looking to find someone to experience new things with and if that turns into something more serious that would be great! I am not looking for a hook-up or casual relationship. I am looking for someone who is relatively self-aware, willing to explore themselves and life. I believe that an ideal couple is one where both individuals feel supported, loved, sexy and that being together allows each person to be the best version of themselves. If you are someone who is fun loving, willing to be adventurous at times and wants to enjoy the process of getting to know one another message me. I love to explore new foods, restaurants and activities. But I am equally comfortable cooking a meal at home curling up on the coach and watching a movie! I'm not much of a drinker because alcohol seems to have a grudge against my body, but I do like to go out mingle, dance and have a good time. If you feel that you are open, fun, caring and have a great sense of humor please contact me. I hope that gives you a better sense of who I am (not that one can sum that up in a profile)!
I am curious, fun , and passionate
