My self-summary
In my words: Equally left- and right-brained, blue sky, hippie, professional, pragmatic, optimistic, klutzy. In friends' words: positive, energetic, considerate, intelligent, attractive, goofy and creative.

I come from a small town in Pennsylvania and have a huge extended family that I love. I credit growing up with around 50 first cousins with being able to make conversations with just about anyone and play well with most people.

Post college, I've lived in NYC, Cambridge, MA, London and Tanzania. I finally moved to SF about two years ago and love it here.

At this point, I’m quite happy with my life and I think it’d be fun to find someone who is in a similar place.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm head of marketing for this really neat startup (just switched from being a nonprofit to a b-corp) in Silicon Valley. Basically, I get paid to tell stories to help super smart people help solve the world's problems. It's awesome.

I spent the first 15 years of my career doing in-house marketing for corporations, including six spent working for a large international corporation as the global marketing director. (Read: lots of travel to big cities... and many personal side trips.) I loved learning about and experiencing different marketing and cultural practices in each country I worked. But, I didn't feel great about helping rich people get richer. So, I took some time off to travel and work for a NGO in Tanzania.

Upon my return to the US, I moved out here to SF where I had been told by many I should live. I think those people were pretty spot on. However, I'm terrible at keeping plants alive, and everyone out here seems to do that extremely well. I did get a puppy, however, and she's just turned two… longer than any plants I've managed to keep alive.

You can find me out exploring NorCal, learning the language (I just used "hella" for the first time recently and it felt… awkward), writing at cafes, trying to teach "Moshi" new tricks, trying out lots of restaurants, volunteering, jogging, hiking, biking, practicing yoga. And I want to take dance classes. And sketch more. And discover the weird stuff locals know about. This place is crazy and awesome and I love it.
I’m really good at
finding beauty and/or humor in things, being on deer patrol, spotting nudibranchs, making pesto, napping, speaking publicly (so grateful for this!).
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes. Or that I tripped on the sidewalk again.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music: Pink Martini, Bonnie Prince Billy, Beastie Boys, Chopin, Madonna, Metric, Howard Fishman Quartet, Nouvelle Vague, Nick Drake, Tori Amos, Leonard Cohen, Blur, PJ Harvey, Beats Antique, Hayes Carll, Kinky, Flaming Lips, Bebel Gilberto, Eels, Ella Fitzgerald, The Hooters, Sting, Thievery Corporation, U2, Cake, Cesaria Evora, Saint-German-Des-Pres Cafe, Beatles, Die Antwoord, Gotan Project, The Beautiful Girls, John Denver, Rachmaninov, Paul Simon, Prince, etc
The six things I could never do without
My camera, water, good sleep, laughter, working out (usually yoga or running), learning.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to be a better person, my next trip, my family and friends, a number of various lists, why female mannequins are designed with erect nipples.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing something or nothing. or both.
