Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My right AND left brain are in overdrive most of the time and
struggling for full control. (Don't worry! There is only one
integrated personality in here.) I love science!!! I am the
quintessential geek, but I am outdoorsy and love to be active. I am
a political liberal, but I live a conservative personal life. I
don't naturally expect the worst from people; I realize that life
just simply does with us what it will sometimes. I am very
fortunate to have lived the life that I have--to be healthy and
able to learn as I do are both priceless gifts. As for the true
love of my life, I miss France every day, but would miss my family
here in the U.S. too much if I ever moved there full time. I would
love to find a job that would take me back and forth on a regular
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I felt like a big-city girl living in small-town Iowa. Then, I hit
my head really hard on that darned glass ceiling, so I went back to
college and completed two degrees. In the process, I learned about
the world AND myself. In the last few years, I have undergone an
incredible evolution--from writer, to photographer, graphics
designer, videographer and animator, and now I'm knee-deep in
HTML5, CSS and other miscellaneous client-side and social media
technologies. When I wake up with a creative idea, I might as well
get up and rev up the computer because I can't turn my brain off; I
find this a very good thing.

I believe the very best products of work arise when teamwork is
encouraged, ethical behavior is nurtured from the highest levels,
and back-stabbing kept to a minimum. For over 10 years, I saw too
much corruption and too many people doing mediocre performance
raking in $150K/yr. paychecks in Washington, DC. At the risk of
sounding like Dorothy, at least for now, I feel that my greener
pastures really are in the Midwest where people are more genuine,
hard-working, and honest, and certainly not in the Land of
I'm certainly not afraid to get my hands dirty. I like being
physically active in the gym, and I like to be outside when the
weather isn't too cold.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
(I know this is going to sound like something I would say at a job
interview, but it's at the heart of who I am, so here goes...) I am
good at big-picture assessment and building strategies based on
fundamentals. I am curious about almost everything. I can memorize
a list in no time. I have become very good at conveying messages
through images, or so they tell me. : ) I am good at learning

I think people just usually notice I'm alone. I am very
independent, and I am out and about by myself quite often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I tend not to read books, except as they have to do with web sites,
graphics or the romance languages (i.e., Spanish, French, Italian).
I enjoy watching PBS and Smithsonian online, and love reading
National Geographic, Scientific American, and Smithsonian Magazine.
I can actually watch a baseball game or soccer every now and again,
and I like watching travel, nature, and science shows on TV, BUT I
don't really watch TV and don't even own one. With a fascination
for moving graphics and special effects, I am learning to create. I
love a lot of the comic book characters that have recently found
new life on the silver screen. The Iron Man and Batman are special
favorites. As for movies, I'm a little like a child in my tastes
sometimes with Enchanted, Despicable Me, American in Paris,
Matchmaker (yes, Matchmaker), Legally Blonde, and Bridget Jones at
the top of my favorites list, but I also really enjoy action movies
including the Jason Bourne and the more recent James Bond films.
Johnny Depp is a god among men; I can't believe he's from Kentucky.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I don't even want a whole lot of stuff. Life, to me, is about
experiences and engaging with people I find interesting.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It just depends. I like to see the new movies when they come out,
but I would wait until they came out in DVD if I had someone
special to watch them at home with me.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I really hope I haven't loved for the last time in my life, but I
want to find a worthy distraction. The thing is, I would rather fly
solo than be in a bad relationship. So, if you're "desperately
seeking Susan," please look elsewhere. But if you're willing to
take the time, and looking for a hard-working, passionate girl with
which to be a real partner and have a monogamous relationship, send
me a note.
