I value kindness and empathy - but I'm also a smart ass. I'm gregarious and unabashedly American, but I do try to tone it down. I like telling (and retelling) stories but I relish silence.
For a while, my life was devoted to trying on different cities and different continents, happily alternating between brainwork and creative leisure. A couple years ago I decided to anchor myself in London for a job where I get to design new stuff (and the ideas behind the stuff) - so I've got more than enough mental stimulation to finally calm my inner Wandering Jew. I'm enjoying the process of slowly rediscovering this place. This typically includes long trips to good food, cycling around London without a map, and spending whole days on a trail in the countryside somewhere. This will also include many lazy Sundays postponing adventure and reading The New Yorker instead.
I am a storyteller, enthusiastic, and a halfassed polyglot
