Right now in my fridge are all the ingredients we would need for:
• a vietnamese noodle bowl
• street tacos
• a strawberry rhubarb pie
• a greek omelet
At the moment my closets contains items useful for:
• ski mountaineering
• mountain and road biking
• visiting the worlds greatest cities
My patio is currently supporting:
• my extra-extraordinarily lovable pup
• a table for two
• a rad pallet garden of succulents
A few things I might like to incorporate into my life soon are:
• a real garden
• a garage
• living closer to a river
• the love of my life
Long term goals include:
• working less (but well)
• learning to play the violin
• traveling and perhaps living abroad again
• living in a house that could be featured in Dwell :)
How about you?
This is not as fun as mtn biking, wading in a creek or throwing a frisbee for my pup...but maybe I will run into you here and we can get out to play!
I have a loving and endlessly supportive family and have had some super adventures. I have lived in Hong Kong, Mexico City, Boston, and a yurt in southern Colorado and loved them each.
I like learning and exploring, giving and sharing, building and creating. My work has been primarily in education start-ups or in organizations in transition. I like geeking out to TED talks and Radiolab and making stuff. I find solace in high alpine meadows and through yoga. I try to remember to feel grateful and to work for the benefit of others.
I would love to meet a sincere and joyful adventurer, a complex and curious explorer, a passionate do-good-er, a creative problem solver, and compassionate friend and lover. I value people who have chosen to be authentic. I want to build a home filled with love and joy. Can't wait to come home to someone who scoops me up and makes me laugh. Is that you?
Some stuff that I do/love and would love to share:
Good architecture and design
Losing track of time
Big lazy breakfasts on a porch with good friends and lots of fresh fruit
Sushi. A lot of it!
Sleeping in a tent
Doing things that seemed impossible moments before
Getting lost in sketching, sculpting, painting or taking photographs
Chairlift conversations, 'specially the two-seaters
Meeting playful, smart, passionate people
Riding my bike
Appreciating blizzards, thunderstorms, hail, hot sun, cold rivers, small wildflowers at high alpine, the intensity of nature
Traveling anywhere and meeting the people who call it home
Swimming in open water
Listening to great music
Growing plants. I can not wait to have a garden!
I love TED Talks, Radiolab, This American Life, Fresh Air, The Daily Show, Colbert, Drunk History
Favorite artists should be on this list: Mackintosh, Calder, Miro, Matisse, Degas, Banksy, Rothko...yum. Cohen Bros, Jim Henson
Like so many kinds of music...but I only like GOOD music :) Emmylou Harris, Zoe Keating, Stephan Grappelli, Mark Knopfler, Otis Redding, Bob Dylan, Gregory Allen Isakov, Carla Bruni, Kieth Jarrett, John Coltrane, The Swell Season, Leonard Cohen, Iron and Wine and Les Paul, and all kinds of other stuff too!
What the next chapter might look like.
