I am eternally curious, often ironic, sometimes mischievous, but rarely cynical.
I aspire to become a more lyrical dancer, whimsical cook and, ultimately, an empathetic student of life. I want to travel the world and am always looking forward to visiting new places. Nonetheless, my most important destinations will always be persons rather than places.
About that guy I have a crush on:
Funny, sporty, vested in life, optimistic and compassionate.
If that's you, I am glad you are here.
Professionally (though also a lot of fun for me), I am always learning new ideas and trying to help bring to market the ones that could improve people's lives.
Movies: Gravity, Fruitvale Station, The Cup (young Tibetan monks following the World Cup) and The First Grader (Octogenarian Kenyan fighting to attend first grade). All Pixar films. I fear I have a taste for the quixotic.
Show: War Horses, Wicked. Esperanza Spalding is marvelous. Love the ballet, especially from the balcony. Measha Brueggergosman for at once breaking and mending my heart.
Food: My favorite meals are minimally or simply cooked to showcase the ingredients (sushi, burgers, mac & cheese). I particularly love legendary hole-in-a-wall places, where I imagine unyielding standards are quietly practiced daily by unsung masters. And watermelons could lure me into a eating contest.
Music: I grew up practicing classical music and listening to car radio. I love finding music everywhere. Higgs Boson is thoroughly charming sonified.
• An unfinished book and a spare
• Giggles / laughter
• Being outdoors -- deep in the woods, soaked in salt water, or under a boundless sky, wind on my face -- there is really nothing better.
