My self-summary
I am very high energy, and have way too many interests for a single lifetime. I'm in touch with my feelings, and am able to express them. People either love me or hate me - I am a free spirit, and quite intense. I can make fun of nearly everything, and quickly - and can make most people laugh.

I'm an excellent photographer - especially portraits, though I've been experimenting lately with fog and clouds. I love to go hiking in the East Bay hills, most often 3-5 miles (though sometimes longer) and with at least one big hill. I like bicycling too, but I usually ride to Chinatown and Jack London Square (five miles).

Everyone thinks I'm extroverted, since I talk to lots of people at parties and protests. But I also enjoy hiding at home, reading from the internet or a book, watching TV and movies on my Macintosh, or whatever.

Politically, I'm a leftist - anarchosyndicalist - which means I think "government is to get in a man's way" but I have some faith in labor unions. I want the environment to be protected, I'm strongly pro-choice, and I'm against most wars.

I am hilarious, warm, and energetic
What I’m doing with my life
I was a Realtor for a couple years. Now starting a photo biz - I've also been a computer consultant, a fundraiser, and much much more.

I love to write, have many ideas, often procrastinate on this. There are articles in me, insightful and funny commentaries on modern life or how-tos that you never knew you needed...

I have considered being a stand-up comedian. I can certainly make people laugh - based on current events, what someone says, the phase of the moon, whatever. Be scared, I'm trained in improv.
I’m really good at
computers, photography, budget travel, kissing, dancing, sleeping in, cuddling, being life of the party, comedy improv, sarcasm and irony, costume on the cheap, finding fun stuff to do, hiking up hills, writing
The first things people usually notice about me
high energy level, talkative, warm and friendly, photography, humor
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Talking Heads, Beatles, Combing Dolores, Dave & Tracy, Squirrel Nut Zipper, and more. I love jazz and blues, classic rock, singer-songwriter (acoustic). Firefly, Serenity, Oceans 11, romantic comedies, lots more. The Time Traveler's Wife, Darkover series, Harry Potter, oh so much more. Food is good - everything from eggs & grilled cheese to chicken burritos and chinese food (dim sum, chow fun). Chocolate.
Six things I could never do without
dark chocolate (the four food groups)
long, deep kisses (when in season)
something to read (compulsive reader)
live music (acoustic, jazz, blues)
did i mention chocolate?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the economy & our uncertain future
my next girlfriend
dark chocolate
On a typical Friday night I am
out with friends, checking out an event, or at home watching a movie
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
hey, I just got here
