What I’m doing with my life
Lately, I've been climbing a fair amount and then dancing here and
there. I love afro-cuban music, though can't play an instrument to
save my life. I know, I know. I keep saying I will try, but I have
yet to make the time.
I travel for work usually once every two months, but it can be more
or less often depending on the status of the project. I moved to
Palo Alto from DC last year for a new job and while I miss my East
coast people, this weather is ridiculous. I've already gone soft.
Who needs humidity and erratic weather patterns when you can have
perfectly mild jacket weather and sunshine...all... the ... time.
I’m really good at
Listening. Fixing things without a lot of guidance. Keeping things
The first things people usually notice about me

while I work, and good food.
Okay, I'm cheating and adding one more I thought of last night:
name brand floss. For the flossers of the world, you know there is
a substantial difference between the cheap generic kinds and the
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Friends and family. Manufacturing (no joke). My dog. The nature of
God. Why people aren't nicer to each other. My garden. Organizing
some aspect of my house or other projects. Movies and books.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, I've been spending Friday night rock climbing with a
handful of friends and then we eat dinner after. Saturday is more
of a play night for me. Usually a show, dinner, dancing, .... or
I'll just stay home with some friends or by myself if I feel like
You should message me if
I'm always up for meeting some new, interesting, good people. So,
I'd be all for recommendations for any good music or concerts in
the area or if you want to go climbing or hiking sometime, be sure
to message me. And if you know places I can take my dog, that would
be most welcomed too!
I suppose after being on okcupid for over a week now, I should
probably add a little something so I don't have to reply to
messages with "I'm impressed with your copied/pasted pick up line,
but if you are looking for a quick hook up, I'm not your gal. All
the best though". :)
