I've lived in a lot of places over the past decade (Japan, San
Diego, New York, Los Angeles, Thailand, San Jose) and had a few
careers (fashion magazine editor, entrepreneur, tiger caretaker),
but I've found my calling and city in San Francisco.
When I'm not at the beach, I am at dog park, the community garden,
or running at Stern Grove.
NOTE to avoid wastubg anyone's time: I'm not looking to be a mother
of human children now or ever.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I lucked out, ending up with my dream green-collar job, so I'm a
happy camper in that department. Until a recent hiatus, I was a
volunteer shark tank cleaner at the aquarium on weekends (I'll
probably return soon). For fun, I hang out with my dog, go to the
beach, volunteer at a garden, explore my city like a tourist and
I’m really good at

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: "1984" (Has any book ever been so ahead of its time?),
"Holidays on Ice" by David Sedaris made me laugh so hard I
squeaked, anything by Kurt Vonnegut, "The End of Faith" by Sam
Harris, "Harry Potter" books, but mostly non-fiction.
Shows and movies: "Arrested Development" set the bar for situation
comedies, "Frasier" has a strangely calming effect on me, "The
Soup" keeps me current without actually having to watch "Honey Boo
Boo," "Real Time with Bill Maher." As for movies, I love
one-man-against-society action flicks like "Die Hard," "XXX," and
"Gattaca." "Say Anything" and the 80's Brat Pack movies were fun as
Music: I like classic rock, particularly Fleetwood Mac, Led
Zeppelin, Steve Miller Band, and the Beatles. And you know what?
Britney Spears is pretty darn awesome too.
Food: I've visited a lot of countries and eaten a lot of things I'm
not proud of (when the South Korean family at the next table
invites you over and orders you a plate of live baby octopi, you
eat them; that's all there is to it). I like salads. I am a cheap
f-ing date. But I can find something to order on any menu. When I
cook, it's fresh and simple.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to catch an armadillo
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights are for me. My ritual is secret and cannot be shared
in this public forum. However, on Saturday nights, I like having
dinner with friends, seeing movies, or staying in with my dog and
some takeout. Or anything with a theme. I'm drawn to things with
themes, like 90s dance nights and gourmet mushroom festivals.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hate showering. I do it every day because I am a member of
society--and even get between the toes--but I just don't enjoy it.

new experiences, destinations, and foods, but you're not so
