My self-summary
Playful, explorative person looking for adventurous souls.

Fitness and wellness professional/educator who is a jill of a trades. Has experienced many professions, such as writer, musician, editor, barista, and videographer.

I love to travel, rock-climb, backpack, paddle-board, and get my peace from being in nature.

Loving my work and loving life.
What I’m doing with my life
Working to help people obtain and regain health and balance.

Making a home with some of my best friends.
I’m really good at
Learning new things. Appreciating beauty. Being a loyal friend. Getting people's shirts off at parties. Tuning into animals. Kissing. Appreciating beauty. Nurturing my friends, family, and anyone who is open to it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, dark blue eyes, and warmth. That I look way younger than I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've been inspired by books like Reading Lolita in Tehran, Three Cups of Tea, Radical Simplicity, Getting Things Done. I enjoy books about Middle East politics, culture, literature, and people. Other authors I like: Tom Robbins, PKD, Augusten Burroughs.

I'm not really a movie buff. I'd take a campfire over a theatre any day. But when I'm home I love watching comedy, musical performances, and documentaries about social issues.

My taste in music ranges wildly. But I especially like passionate female singer songwriters, ambient, and world music. Musicians I like: Yasmin Levy, Tycho, Yann Tiersen, Santana, Cat Empire, Someone Still Loves you Boris Yeltsin, Adelle, Strunz and Farah, Sinead O Conner, Shawn Colvin, Florence and the Machine, Death Cab for Cutie, Cat Stevens, B52's, Dead Can Dance, Luscious Jackson, Vampire Weekend.

I like seeing live music in really small intimate venues. I've cultivated a special passion and love for Persian classical music. Also, I love flamenco.

I Looooooove food. I like to cook for people, especially Southern style comfort food. I eat Indian, Thai, Persian- I make a lot of those dishes. I couldn't live without gluten free crepes and dosa. I like to go out for a beer or have a glass of wine with dinner.
The six things I could never do without
My friends
My amazing sweet cat
My family
Cuddles
Chocolate
Mountains
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People, motivations, character, interactions, the natural world, beauty, food, self-growth.
On a typical Friday night I am
A Friday is like any other day. Sometimes I just indulge myself by going to bed early with a book and my cat on my lap. But I also enjoy cultural events, live music, hot tubs, and cooking dinner with friends. Also, camping with sky full of stars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Secrets are for good connections, over a bottle of wine, in a crowded music hall, after some good dancing.
You should message me if
Looking to meet people and see if we mesh. Interested in chatting a small bit, but mostly going out on dates.

Message me if you have the time to invest in a connection. I have been in both monogamous and poly relationships. My most long-term relationship (9 yrs) was open. Would preferably want to be in a monogamous relationship, but open to exploring a committed primary partnership if our styles match.
