Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
These things are awkward so in a nutshell, let's just say I'm a big
pile of awesomeness. Or I am a complete jerk. Take your pick
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Chicago to make Kmart commercials. Now I have decided to
tear up that contract with Satan and move towards doing work that
will allow me to sleep at night (and rekindle my romance with music
and food since I've been living in a marketing vortex). Being the
handmaiden of capitalism has less ups than downs.
Update: I'm back with Satan but at least I'm no longer broke.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fun. I am super social and outgoing and look for the same in my
I am also really good at trying to pursue 20 things at the same
time. Patience and focus are not my strongest points.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My intensity - I speak with my hands a lot. I am very energetic and
I like to breathe life in otherwise boring situations. And I like
to fist fight. a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music and food are my LIFE. I read a ton - maybe a book a week. I
like reading a lot of non-fiction - love linguistics, sociology,
anthropology (my B.A), and all memoirs that use humor to convey the
ugliness in life (think Augusten Burroughs). l also love VICE
magazine, anything related to surfing and skateboarding. Hip-Hop
and California punk rock do it for me too. Oh yeah, and I am
Colombian so anything with a good rhythm that can get me to dance
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Wustof Chef Knife
iPod filled with my music
the ocean (yeah, I know. I live in Chicago)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
To me, the most important thing in life is making truly meaningful
connections with people. Although I am a social butterfly, I don't
do surface level friendships that well. I really get off on getting
to know someone and understanding their values and what inspires
them and makes them tick. It may have to something to do with the
fact that I am a researcher by nature (and profession) - but I also
believe that there really is no point in calling someone a friend
unless you can truly feel safe and comfortable around them - no
matter how high or low you are feeling that day. I am very
forthcoming with my feelings and my ideas - I wear my thoughts and
heart on my sleeve, perhaps to a fault. However, I really don't
know how to be any other way. Let's just say I don't hold back and
I would expect the same of you.
So this may sound weird, but I have found some of the most
interesting and enjoyable times to be with people and talking about
things like religion and social constructs and the "why?" of how
humans behave. Don't get me wrong, I can tell disgusting jokes with
the best of them and I have the sense of a humor of a teenage boy.
But this natural curiosity I have around human behavior is probably
why I majored in anthropology - duh.
I really couldn't tell you WHO I'm looking for but I do know I am
looking for something serious. If you are just interested in sex or
dating a bunch of people at the same time, then I'm not the one for
you. I'm in no rush to get married or anything like that, but I am
craving a relationship that gives me joy, support, comfort and some

and making even more people laugh.

you're smart - I love to read and being a life long learner is
really important. You have to at least like music and be wiling to
go check out live acts. You must like good food and you can't be
boring. I am NOT into sitting around and watching TV. It depresses
