My self-summary
I'm serious about lots of issues, but there are times I can't stop laughing. I really enjoy the finer things, but the best work I’ve ever done was pure class struggle. I know a lot, but I'm sure you could teach me a few things.

I ask follow-up questions. I like people, food, film, and music from all over the world. I don’t like yippy dogs. I have an amazingly cute 6 year old boy (part-time). He’s made me a better person.

I’m Left, not liberal. I have strong opinions; getting challenged is great. So is femininity mixed with strength. I don't smoke, drink or do drugs, but I don't need help overcoming inhibitions. I try to live by certain ideals and fail more often than I'd like--meat is f’in delicious!

I don't talk in staccato lists…

I'm a snob about movies--really like the foreign, indie, and classic stuff. Did you see Beasts of the Southern Wild?! I'm well-traveled and although being a dad has temporarily stopped the int'l jaunts, I've still managed to do some cool National Parks trips. I'm originally from Philadelphia; sarcasm plays a role in my banter. I'm not on Facebook.

Sense of humor and fun are not optional! If I fall for you, you’ll be able to get me to do things that I wouldn't consider for anyone else. Andale Cupid!
What I’m doing with my life
Working, parenting, trying to have fun
I’m really good at
one thing in the kitchen: challah french toast
a couple other things, too
The first things people usually notice about me
Height and smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not reading a lot of books these days, but I know if I say Murakami people will think it's cool. I check the NYT and al-Jazeera online for news. And Stewart/Colbert.

I like Lila Downs and Led Zeppelin; Mos Def and Martha Wainwright.

I used to think all tv was stupid (well, not Seinfeld). Then I was introduced to The Wire, Mad Men, Shameless, Breaking Bad. Some serious writing talent went to cable!

Snobby movie favorites: M, The Bicycle Thief, The White Balloon, Wind Journeys, the Apu trilogy, Matewan, Raising Arizona, Cocaine Cowboys II, Borat, and scores more.

I think paella may be the world's best dish. Or bbq that's delicious before the sauce goes on. Sugar in all forms is my vice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
who you might be
On a typical Friday night I am
at home with my boy or doing something I found in the East Bay Express or SFBG
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My family is part of the global banking conspiracy based in Zurich. Working for money is just an elaborate cover.
