I love to laugh and be playful - a good sense of humor is really important to me. I'm a bit artsy and usually in the midst of some kind of creative project. Cooking has been a big creative outlet. I'm a dreamer - I love imagining possibilities - and at the same time I'm practical and a big planner. I'm also a bit of a romantic, and prefer to give and receive gestures that are authentic rather than from any kind of romance checklist. Definitely an optimist - the universe is an amazing place, and I like to make time for moments of awe.
Science and knowledge oriented - I approach the world with a healthy mix of skepticism and curiosity. Fascinated by a wide variety of science things, especially neuroscience, astronomy/physics, medicine, and of course the chemistry of cooking.
I love celebrating holidays; traditions with family and friends are really important. I'm very close with my immediate family. And I also just love any reason to throw a party.
Keeping work and life in balance is a priority for me. I'm social, and enjoy time to myself- I make sure to spend time with people who are important to me, and I love taking trips and planning get togethers. I crave sunshine and love the outdoors - I always have herbs or vegetables growing in the warm months, and love the pool and the beach, as well as the cliched long walks. I also just can't help myself from exploring houses under construction.
I'd love to travel more, with someone. My travel style is pretty easy going, and I absolutely love being able to chat a little in other languages - it feels like magic.
Planning, listening, growing herbs, pet whispering.
I'm also surprisingly good at shopping for other people - looking for a great piece of art for your living room or a replacement for your favorite pair of shoes? I'm your girl.

I'm open and adventurous when it comes to food - favorites include Indian, Thai, sushi, Mexican, Greek. I prefer quality over quantity when it comes to coffee. Wheaty beers, red wine, whiskey cocktails. Keeping healthy leafy things in balance with ice cream.
How plugging my headphones into my tablet feels like listening to a monstrous iPod
I also enjoy a good Netflix binge on the couch
So I've got that going for me.
You'd like to spend a Saturday morning at the Farmer's market buying produce in unusual colors
You've got a few smooth moves up your sleeve
You'd be into teaching each other something new
You like new adventures as much as you like relaxing and taking time away
You're progressive and open-minded
