Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When I try to describe myself, words like warm, open, playful,
mischievous, and passionate come to mind. My four-month stay with a
family in Cuba reveals a lot about the things I love: Latin
American joie de vivre, salsa dancing, politics, hot summers,
laid-back island energy, and living in the moment. I still love to
travel, and I'm also excited about the next adventure of finding
someone special with whom to share all life has to offer. A few
years ago I bought a fixer-house, which has finally and remarkably
been transformed from a dusty construction site to a really nice
place to call home. Several years ago I enjoyed things like
crossing the Guatemalan jungle on top of a Pepsi truck. More
recently, I am enjoying the more mundane activities of cooking
dinner with friends, finishing up some home improvement projects...
but of course the next international destination still beckons...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love, laughter, stepping off the plane to explore someplace new,
being active, the ocean, good company.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life and how to live it well; to really create the love and
experiences and joy now, in the moment. On a different note,
planning my next international adventure, or deciding which fruit
trees to plant next. On the work front, ways to improve public
health and communities so that everyone gets a fair chance in life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
sometimes up for a night on the town, and at other times more in
the mood for a mellow dinner, movie, hanging out.
