My self-summary
I tend to follow my stomach wherever it leads me. I lived in Thailand for a while and then Barcelona for a little over a year. I'm back in Philly now and love it.

I have pretty varied interests and like to stay busy while maintaining a well-balanced life. I love small live shows and sweating on the dance floor, but I'm equally as happy for a night in playing poker with friends or talking til sunrise over a bottle of wine/beer/whiskey. I like to stay in shape, though I'm a klutz so it might be a stretch to call me athletic. I definitely enjoy spending a good amount of time outside. Biking is my preferred way to get around the city.

I am perceptive, practical, and prone to distraction
What I’m doing with my life
I get to taste and talk about wine all day for a living, so life is good. Grad school might be on the horizon. I like to write when I can.

It's fun to think about opening a wine bar/coffee shop/lending library/travel agency something-or-other some day....in the mean time I'd like to fix our food system...
I’m really good at
telling long-winded, rambling stories. making lists on post-its. identifying tertiary aromas in wine. being clumsy. finding time in my busy schedule for tv on the internet. sleeping anywhere. eating.
The first things people usually notice about me
my blue eyes

food: when i'm cooking i love me some one-pot-wonders...dining out i'll try pretty much anything...thai, vietnamese, indian are some favorites, as well as the classics
The six things I could never do without
my passport
a decent red or white wine
a moleskin notebook
a nytimes crossword
my wine key
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything. i have a proclivity for over-analyzation...and perhaps making up words.
On a typical Friday night I am
working, out with friends, or taking it easy
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i think left-handedness is sexy.
You should message me if
you're female and think we'd click.

i'm not really sure that i'm looking to get into something at the moment, but i am always interested in making connections with fun, intelligent, like-minded people. in terms of what i look for in a partner, i tend to go for driven, well-rounded, independent women with a good sense of humor. interest in food and wine would definitely be a plus.
