My self-summary
I am passionate about food, love to dance, enjoy exercise, and try to live by, “Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...”. I'm a Bay Area native who's ultimate goal in life is to breed miniature giraffes. (I like all animals, but having a miniature giraffe as a pet would be ideal.)

I love traveling and feel money should be spent on experiences. I've been to 20 countries and what I enjoy the most about traveling is discovering new places, taking in different cultures, sights, and smells, meeting interesting people, and having new experiences. On occasion, I look for late night mischief that involves confetti, zombies, English muffins, or a combination of the 3. Feel free to reach out, I like someone who's ambitious and takes initiative!
What I’m doing with my life
I am working at a financial services start up as an Ops and Customer Success Manager (a.k.a. Professional Empathizer). I strongly believe in taking care of mind, body and soul which is why I often attempt to workout and mediate. On rare occasions I'll succeed.
I’m really good at
Naming movies that start with the word 'Jaws' and guessing colors that end in ‘-urple’. Additionally: Cuddling, dancing, active listening, cheering people up, learning from mistakes, improvisation, being creative, impersonating a masseur, appreciating others, losing to the Pope in chess, overcoming challenges, and puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
My outgoing personality, great sense of humor, and a resemblance to someone you may (or may not) know. (Also that I'm actually 6'3".)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones, American Gods, Ringworld, Hamlet, Ender's Game, and Where the Wild Things Are (yeah, I'm not ashamed, that one hasn't changed for 20 years!).
Movies: The Usual Suspects, The Dark Knight, High Fidelity, Hero, The Big Lebowski, Saving Private Ryan, Inception, The Departed, Anchorman, Airplane, Rear Window, North by Northwest, and Lawrence of Arabia. I absolutely love movies and could continue naming favorites for a long while.
Music: I like most electronic music, alternative rock, acoustic rock and classic rock. Specific artists I enjoy are Jack Johnson, Dispatch, Kygo, Tycho, The Killers, Thievery Corporation, Ratatat & Daft Punk.
Food: Don't have a favorite, will eat and appreciate most food!
The six things I could never do without
Great food, exercise, intimate conversations, spending time with friends/family, animals, and traveling.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to combine dancing, mint chocolate chip ice cream, early 16th century Russian theater, and ending world poverty into one activity. Ideas? 

Also, how to help, influence, or change the lives of those around me. My family believes in the importance of giving back (and Etch A Sketches), so I’ve always found it essential to think about helping others and supporting organizations that do. (Note: Sadly, non-profits do not appreciate large quantity donations of Etch A Sketches. In my opinion, Amnesty International could be much more effective with 1500 of them on hand. Imagine the possibilities!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Swimming the Mediterranean while listening to Thriller, or going out to dinner, drinks, or the movies with friends. Depending on how I feel, I may also curl up with a book or movie while thinking about how to make a profitable chocolate trafficking business (because let's be honest, if you could make money for eating and sharing large amounts of delicious chocolate with friends, it would be pretty amazing, no?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never spent the night in a turkish prison and yes, I like gladiators movies.

Every year I spend a week in the desert having life changing experiences with 68,000 people.

I've played 3 sports over my lifetime (soccer, water polo, and football), each resulting in knee or shoulder surgery. Besides competitive knitting, any suggestions for other less dangerous sports I could try?
You should message me if
You feel sticking to the conventional path isn't always necessary and you think there's more to life than being really really ridiculously good looking. Also, if you're an adventurous person with a great sense of humor who likes intelligent conversations, trying new things, and loves spontaneity! Like what you read or think the two of us would have fun traveling, dancing, and playing Twister on every continent? Don't hesitate to send me a message!
