My self-summary
[Hello there, NY! Im visiting my sister from Seattle, which I do on the regular. I love meeting new and interesting people, and... well, we've all been travelers, right? My treat for drinks or dinner anywhere 17-25 Oct. At the very least I can promise you will have a friend in Seattle with a houseboat! Plus, you never know...]
I love spilling beyond neat boundaries, while challenging assumptions (others’ and mine). I am happy to have gained a great deal of high-quality friends, knowledge, experiences, and stories throughout my life, and I look forward to more. I try to live my life like I travel… prepare well, plan only some of the major waypoints, relax along the way, and enjoy the small details and unplanned opportunities that come along. In general, I find that life is most interesting when saying 'yes' to things more often than not. I love having exceptionally high expectations and finding them occasionally exceeded.

Oh, I'm kind of hilarious. Not in a self-summary kind of way... more of an insightful and/or oddball comment woven artfully though our conversation kind of way. Also, stories like when I accidentally slept with my best friend's dad or when I shut down a building by touching a Big Red Button.
What I’m doing with my life
I have lived in 10 states and also Paris, but I am thrilled to say that I have set down roots in Seattle over the last few years. I still love to travel in the U.S. and abroad, but it is nice to know where home and friends are. A sister in NYC and ‘rents in Toledo make sure that I get around.

I'm fortunate to love my job, though I keep it in perspective. I'm part CFO of an engineering company (current job), Paris bike tour guide (past job), and a t.b.d. part documentary filmmaker.
I’m really good at
Rolling with it... whatever "it" may be.
Being present.
Being GGG.
[Apparently not everyone reads Savage Love in Seattle.?. Good, Giving, and Game.]
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on whether I'm walkin' towards you or away, amiright?

Oh, I mean, a smile.?.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent favorites... All the Pretty Horses, Blink, Middlesex, Unbearable Lightness of Being.

Royal Tenenbaums, Secretary, Princess Bride. My girl friends know that I am always up for a chick flick, and I also love a good documentary.

I enjoy a great meal out, but I also enjoy cooking with someone else. I like pretty much all of the foods, but if your partner must like beets, then we may not work out.

Head and the Heart, Radiohead, Alt-J, Johnny Cash, Macy Gray, etc. I hit a live music show or some other performance every couple weeks... always up for a good idea!
The six things I could never do without
My house fire provided pleasant confirmation that material things really aren't that important. So...

Great conversation
Quiet time and no conversation
(Think of the different combinations!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Fun things to do with friends on a paddle wheel houseboat.
Maintenance to do on paddle wheel houseboat.
The relentless pursuit of contentment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinner with friends, enjoying the reasons we live in Seattle, on my way someplace, already someplace, quiet night after having been someplace.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have to control my urges to use parentheses and ellipses.
You should message me if
You're game.

Also, if you suffer from the (apparently) common fatigue that results from seeing endless shirtless dude pics and receiving "yer hot, wanna f*ck?" messages.
