Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Greetings! Self promotion gives me the heebie jeebies. Here goes
nothing. I grew up in the pacific northwest, went to college in LA
then came back to beautiful Seattle in 2005. I've lived on Capitol
Hill for the last 7 years, and love my neighborhood, albeit I'm sad
it seems to be losing it's character. I'm active and extroverted. I
love an unplanned day that meanders and leads me to random
adventures. I live alone and value time spent on my own, but also
crave spontaneous shenanigans with friends. I will win at any
humorous spar with you. Or beat you at a dance off!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach first grade at an elementary school in Renton. My students
crack me up and keep me honest on a daily basis. I have been
teaching for 6 years now in various grade levels- pretty much the
best job ever. There is never a shortage of hugs or extremely
random quotes. I feel grateful to have found work that empowers
youth, keeps me quick on my feet, and allows me to play. When I'm
not teaching I am hanging out with my friends and family, running
by the lake, jamming out on my patio, playing cribbage at a bar
with a whiskey in hand, exploring the endless stream of new
restaurants in my hood, loitering in bookstores, and traveling. I
have travelled extensively and am stoked to have a job that ensures
time for adventure, exploration and growth. I spent month last
summer in the Dominican Republic and and relishing in planning my
next summer excursion! Being curious about the world is of high
importance to me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Witty banter. Speaking Spanish. Writing. Dancing. Planning parties.
Running long distances. Teaching. Cat naps. Showing affection.
Cooking. Relaxing. Indulging. Impersonations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Long eyelashes. Big blue green eyes. Super blond hair (naturally)
as I am Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian. I am very gestural with my
hands. Then my throaty grandpa laugh!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am more a magazine junkie due to lack of time to actually read
amazing literature- however, when I do have time I like to read
authors like David Sedaris, Malcom Gladwell, Steve Martin, John
Steinbeck, Alice Walker, Pema Chodron, Barbara Kingsolver, and
I enjoy movies but am not obsessed. I reliably enjoy anything dry
and hilarious from HBO (Louis C.K., Bored to Death, Girls) or
escapist and intense (Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Six Feet Under,
Masters of Sex, Downton Abbey). Let's not forget the Simpsons- best
I am very expansive in my music taste. I enjoy everything from old
school hip hop, soul and r&b to danceable electronic or synth
pop to classic rock and mellower acoustic music. I will listen to
basically anything except super whiny/emo alternative bands.
Please, life is too short.
I am adventurous in my food tastes. Greek, Japanese, and Latin
American foods top the list.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
dairy products in general- but mostly cheese
dance parties with lots of gesturing and hip movement
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next escapade. How I simultaneously feel old yet very young. How
my students are faring at home. Where I want to travel next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having drinks with friends, eating delicious food and belly
laughing with someone.
