I am intense, high energy, and ambitious. If you are looking for self-assured, driven, and intelligent woman that can hold her own, write me.
I am fiercely loyal and believe in giving back and supporting my friends and colleagues. I am very relationship oriented and always make time for significant others. While it may not seem it I am actually quite warm.
Other useful details: I am Waldorf educated, attended the University of Chicago (Econ and a program called Fundamentals: Issues and Texts), and I am a great books lateral thinking diverse interests kind of woman. I'm from Boulder Colorado and much of my personality is reflected in my Western upbringing.
I recently (well in the last year) discovered a passion for powerlifting. If you want to discuss Starting Strength or Wendler's 5x3x1 or your recomp I'm all ears. My favorite lift is the deadlift. My co-founder says that my self image lies somewhere between The Rock and Lara Croft.
I live in Chinatown because it is a cross between a William Gibson novel and a Robert Longo art directed film. It is a bit like living in Blade Runner. This without a doubt describes my preferred aesthetic.
I've been told by friends that I need to slow down. I struggle with this—a lot.
I am very input-output driven as a person so I keep things efficient. Everything in life can be broken down into "a thing" or "not a thing" and "done" or "not done". I strive to make things "not a thing" and "done." You would be surprised how much drama you cut out of work (and life) with this philosophy.
I am also strongly drawn to the classics with a deep love of Thucydides' Peloponnesian War in particular. I am also quite the Adam Smith fan but prefer Theory of Moral Sentiments. Augustine's City of God and Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion also strongly impact my politics. Though not in the way you might think.
I also love children's literature from the obscure like Big Tiger and Christian to Tove Jansson's Moomintrolls.
MAGAZINES: I read the The Economist to keep up with the world in one convenient progressive technocrat dose.
MEDIA: I love Star Trek. Anything involving aliens or blowing things up. Science fiction is my preferred movie genre. MST3K. Northern Exposure. And I LOVE Spartacus because it is gladiator porn produced by Sam Raimi. I watch Archer, Eureka and South Park. I love football.
SPORTS: I'm a Bears fan.
INTERNET: I spend a lot of time on various internet oriented media type sites like The Awl.
FOOD: I eat a lot of protein to fuel my weight lifting. BBQ and tacos (maybe without the tortilla) are my staples. I like whiskey but I don't drink a lot anymore.
FASHION I like Marni, Prada, Jil Sander (both Raf Simmon's work and the lady herself). I also own a surprising amount of Diane Von Furstenberg, Ann Taylor and Gucci which is driven driven mostly by corporate discounts.
If this section is something you didn't gloss over but actually find interesting and want to tell me all about your nouveau americana, Steven Alan, APC, Freeman's (grooming or suiting) regimen or how really maybe you prefer OAK and Odin I will probably adore you. I live for fashion straights.
You are an outgoing, stylish, fit, nerdy entrepreneur.
You want to join me at some restaurants I've been looking to try including Carbone, Pearl and Ash, Aamanns-Copenhagen, Alder, Mighty Quinns, Le Philosophe, and Marrow. I promise to wear a nice cocktail dress. I've many to choose from; red, black, even pink.
You would enjoy discussing whether the future has arrived or not or if it is simply unevenly distributed.
You love weightlifting, powerlifting or are otherwise a fan of being physically active. Points deducted if you are into Cult-Fit (aka Cross Fit) or are compulsively Paleo.
If you have a thing for Erin Burnett.
You are not afraid of women who manage their own lives.
You are patient. I have a busy schedule, I travel a lot, and I have a lot of competing priorities. Be respectful of my time & I will be respectful of yours
