Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I recently moved here from Baja California Sur, Mexico where I
spent most of my time in the water or the mountains....and I miss
it. I've been in Mexico for 4 years, mostly in Mexico City....and I
also miss that crazy city. Now I am here. I ride my bike all over.
I box. I move around and eat good food and read good books. I like
horses and racquetball and cheeseburgers and sleeping outside and
getting dressed up and snorkeling and making random lists.
Before Mexico I lived in Bolivia which is a beautiful, facinating
place. I have been traveling a lot, mostly work with water and
rural and peri-urban communities, and I enjoy that. But now I am
settling down here for a bit. I have a solid job with the federal
government here, so less time to explore the outside world, but
more time to settle down and get to know this beautiful area of the
A fun night to me would be going out and seeing some good music, or
making dinner (...and yes, I cook both Indian and Italian food, my
2 backgrounds), going hiking/biking or just staying in with a movie
and wine. Or good rye whiskey.
I love design...art and house design. I have two cute adobe houses
in Albuquerque, and I would like a little piece of land to build a
little well-designed house on. That's my next goal.
Oh, I was born and raised in Chicago. I still love that city.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm looking to meet some good people. I play the cajon (when I have
people to play with) and was in an awesome band in New Mexico and
another of Son Jarocho in Mexico City. I usually struggle with the
"desire to settle down and the urge to keep moving"...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a good cook (thanks to my mom and pops)...and I'm good at
planning road trips and exploring. Eating. Swimming. Laying on the

A book that I just read that really struck me is "The Heart is a
Lonely Hunter" by Carson McCullers. She was a genius, amazing young
woman. Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis is great. No, he did not write The
Jungle. That's the other Sinclair.
East of Eden just blew me away. I didn't want it to end.
I don't have cable or Internet at my house. Not because I think
it's stupid...but because I have hundreds of books I need to read
before I die. And lots of movies to see...and Casa Video is
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Tacos de nopal, my bike, a good book, my father's advice... and the
sun and sea. Oh and This American Life. That's 7.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Impacts of climate change. Gender and migration patterns. Water.
Lack of water. Human geography. How I love people but hate humans.
Lots of nerd stuff...and when that gets terrifying/overwhelming I
switch to: what to read next, what to cook next, where to go next.
Shoes. All the cool stuff I have from around the world. How much I
love my friends. My parents. My sisters. My awesome family.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out looking for music and dancing, or laying around reading, or
drinking a whiskey, or camping or doing all of those things in

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are sincere, and you read my profile before messaging me, and
you don't want to spend days and days messaging. I prefer real-life
interactions. And don't send me pictures of you holding a giant
gun. Or your penis.
Or...you have a Jstor account and you'll let me use it. And you
know what Jstor is.

something to work with here! :)
