My self-summary
i'm vivacious, passionate, and love dinners out with friends. but i'm also shy, humble, and treasure cozy nights at home. i love to dance to house music and i'm a dedicated groupie of my friends' bands. i love plants and dogs, and other living things. i care a lot about all people being treated right and about fighting for social justice in the little and big ways. i get giddy about karaoke and spearhead concerts and really good arugula salads and going to the beach. i have a big, complex, multiracial family and i love them a whole lot. i'm a devoted auntie and i love kids, though i don't know yet if i want to be a parent. i'm full-figured and beautiful, a pretty good singer and a sometimes pool shark. i love big as often as possible, i cry hard when it's in order, and i laugh out loud at every opportunity.

i'm mixed, and feel very connected to both my black heritage and my scandinavian heritage. i love my diverse family, and the dear friends i've made from all parts of my life.

i'm looking for a guy to hang out, laugh, and explore the world with - someone with his own rich life but who wants to spend quality time doing the little and big things together.

i don't drink, smoke, or do any drugs - i'm living a substance-free and very fun-filled life! if alcohol or drugs are important to you or a significant part of your life, we're probably not a fit. but if you're willing not to do them or be on them when you're with me, then feel free to be in touch!
What I’m doing with my life
i manage an urban farm in boston - four and a half years ago i made the switch from grantwriting to this new career. i am so happy that i did!

i'm committed to living a long and healthy life, and getting there is a journey. healthy eating is important to me, and swimming, dancing, and hiking are favorite ways to move.

i try to have fun whenever possible! a recently discovered passion is knitting. i love the art of comedy, and get a kick out of breaking down why something is funny. i also love a good heated film discussion.

i want to be practicing yoga and traveling but they've taken a back seat lately. i'm planning to pick up kayaking next season.

i'm a podcast fiend and have aspirations of being a comic book nerd - always happy to get recommendations!

how to make room in the world for lots of different kinds of people, and what new thing I wanna cook! also, my farm.
On a typical Friday night I am
curled up on the couch recovering after an exhausting week at the farm, or out at a live show or a movie with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i hate flossing!
You should message me if
you're playful, thoughtful, adventurous, love art and music, like dogs and kids, like full-figured women, looking for something relatively serious, care about making a contribution to humanity, and want to see the world!

if you do write, please say more than just "hey" -- especially if we have a low % match. show me we've got something to talk about!

also, please don't message me if you're out-of-state - local folks only! and don't message me if you're looking for someone to dominate you, or some other similar arrangement. that's not for me.
