People often tell me that I remind them of Shiva, the Hindu god of death and destruction. But I think my friends would say that I'm thoughtful, independent, curious, loyal, & ambitious. Integrity is important to me. I find enjoyment in the little things. Plus I've never had a cavity. Like ever. One time I exchanged "What's up?" nods with David Bowie. That is true. Also, I told David Lynch about a weird dream I had--this is also true--whereupon he told me how he came up with the ending to Mulholland Drive.
In college, I was a White House intern, but then I put like a 10-year moratorium on talking about it because of, you know, Monica Lewinsky. Poor girl. Anyway, I've heard every joke, so shut up.
Oh: I have an irrational fear of jackalopes, which I can trace psychoanalytically to a particular semi-traumatic moment at a highway rest stop in Utah. You should probably know about that in advance.
I'm originally from the east coast, but I went to grad school on the west coast. I've moved back and forth a few times. Am kinda nerdy, into art & literature, movies, outdoorsy things, random adventures, going out, staying in, sports (esp. hockey (ice), football, tennis...). I love dogs. And I think nose rings are kinda hot (on humans, that is), although I am powerless to explain why.
Ladies, please form an orderly queue.
**OH, PLEASE NOTE: I should mention that, for career-related reasons that are a little too complicated to get into right here, I live in Austin for about 9 months out of the year and San Diego for the other 3. As you can imagine, this situation wreaks a certain havoc on my personal life--and so basically what I'd really like is to meet someone who's OK with this and maybe even thinks it's cool. In the long run, I hope to switch to a 100%-of-the-time-in-Austin situation, but at the moment that's outta my hands. :-/
