Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I aspire to find a relationship with authentic communication and
joyful curiosity - I want to find someone who loves to learn about
life and themselves as much as I do. If that sounds good, we'll get
And I'm looking for someone great to spend some time with and see
where it goes. Also I really love my life and the people in it. I
am not looking for a partner to complete me, but to compliment each
I believe that people can change when they have the desire to and
are willing to do that hard work. The best things in life aren't
free - satisfaction comes when there's effort involved. I prefer to
participate in life rather than observe it, when appropriate. I'm
adventurous and up to trying most things at least once.
I enjoy intellectual conversation - smart is sexy. I have a curious
mind and I'm into lots of things; cooking, camping, surfing, and I
love to dance.
My approach to life:
If you want it - go for it
If it fights back - let go
Say yes as much as possible - but stay true to oneself
I went to Burning Man for the first time in 2011 and it changed me
profoundly. I won’t expound on it too much here, but the short of
it is - I discovered who I really was. I experienced myself with no
judgement or expectations of who I should be. This lead me to
change my life in the “default” world and explore being that person
each and every day, not just on playa. So my plan is to keep going
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a professional problem solver. I started out in non-profit,
moved to event production and now I work for a well known tech
start-up developing implementation and adoption plans. I love my
job, seriously, I love what I do every day and it's made me a very
happy person. It was a long road to get there and I'm
So that’s my work life, but that’s just one slice of the pie. I’m a
hard core foodie. I love dining out; fine dining is great, but so
is a hole in the wall with killer food. I also love to cook and
love it even more when I’m cooking for someone else. Long term life
dream is to go to culinary school.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pushing my boundaries and communicating.
I fancy myself a zombie apocalypse survivalist.
I can totally get along for a week of camping with no power or
running water. I made a swamp cooler out of a Home Depot bucket
once and I'm damn proud of it. Trust me, if you get bitten by a
zombie, as much as I may love you, I won't hesitate to cap your ass
for the good of all humanity.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm effervescent and full of enthusiasm for almost any topic of
conversation that comes my way. And if I think you're clever,
you'll see my face brighten with a smile that my friends say lights
up the room.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
About the community that's flourished around me since moving to San
Francisco. It's so unique and special and beyond what I could have
imagined (reminding me yet again that the universe can offer things
beyond my dreams).
