My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i am a photographer and videographer by trade and work freelance. when I am not trying to make a few bucks to pay my bills i do a lot of pro bono work for social justice organizations. you can often catch me at protests being chased by riot police. seriously:

travel is big on my agenda but will have to wait until the economy improves, or I win the lottery. i have a vw westy camper van that i am dying to take out. road trip anyone?

oh, and about those personality traits here on my profile: i am not sure how i got a "more into sports" trait. i am not into sports at all. i like to mountain bike and i work out at the gym, but don't care about sports. and the arrogance trait? i am not sure what to make of that. i can't stand arrogant people myself and certainly strive to NOT be an arrogant jerk.

I have been to a few places (India, Venezuela, Mexico, Cuba) and have a strong desire to see more of the world, including more of the US. My creative outlet is photography and videography.

I am an unabashed lefty and believe strongly in social justice. I am an Internationalist in my world-view and have a BIG problem with American jingoism.

I’m a book geek and worked in a bookstore for 8 years. I went to Cal so supposedly I’m educated. I don’t drink milk, but I do eat cheese. I don’t smoke, but I am four-twenty compliant and enjoy an occasional drink now and then.

I am also a die-hard thriftier, and can’t pass up a chance to peruse a good thrift store or flea market. Sorry, I don’t do malls or shopping centers.


Twenty-six to forty-two (+ or –)
Relatively fit (curvy is cool)
Liberal/Progressive/Radical in your political outlook
A lover of books
A lover of animals
Equally comfortable in heels or hiking boots (literally and metaphorically speaking)
Fluent in sarcasm
Possibly into visual arts of some kind

there it is in a nutshell. don't be shy.
