My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love art, food, people and community. I am consistent, grounded, passionate and easygoing. I am often quiet in larger groups, and I love long one on one conversations where the rest of the world fades away. I love to get to know new people and learn about their lives. I think I strike a good balance between optimism and realism. I am widely accepting of people and am excited by diversity and uniqueness.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love to cook. I learn the core principles behind different dishes, then improvise and develop my own recipes and variations. I am continually fascinated by the mysterious magic of cooking, and the power that sharing a delicious meal can have to bring people together.

I love to make pottery on the wheel. I have done production work and I teach classes and workshops from time to time. Now I am spending most of my pottery time developing new designs striving to breath lots of feeling and expression into my work.

I manage a small branch of my fathers business. As long as I make it work, he gives me complete freedom and independence. I hired a good friend, and together we have made the business more and more efficient over the years. I get to be creative and it gives me time to peruse my cooking and art.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing the potential in others, loving people for who they are, being positive, being realistic, building things, strategy games, giving shoulder massages, being present with people, talking about feelings, being fair, being silly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone told me their first impression was that I was expressive with my body language.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I listen to a wide range of music and going to shows is a fun activity. The Independent is my favorite venue in the bay so far.

I love cuddling together and reading for the afternoon; there is something so comforting about spending time with someone in silence.

I listen to a lot of podcasts, and love to talk about the last episode of: This American Life, Radiolab, Savage Love, etc.

Other fun things: exploring new and exciting restaurants, going to a movie in a small local theater where they don’t play a bunch of terrible ads, watching a good tv show (never actually on tv).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are more then six things that without, I would be sad. I usually just try to adapt and keep going after new things as life changes...

Some things that are important to me at the moment: close friends/family, bike, smart phone, well equipped kitchen, farmers markets, computers, pottery studio, gym.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work, art, relationships, people, how life works, the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The day of the week doesn't have all that much influence on my choice of activity. Often times I forget it is Friday and wonder why the restaurant has such a long wait...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am pretty open and enjoy talking about feelings, relationships and sex. I enjoy people who like talking about these things too!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to get together for a low pressure conversation over a coffee or beer. I am okay with messaging too, but I find it a lot easier to get a feeling for someone face to face. I have no shortage of fun activity and adventure ideas, but having an initial meeting to feel things out makes sense to me. So far I have had some of the best conversations upon first meeting someone from this site.
