My self-summary
I find it difficult to describe myself so I asked some friends for help. They said: passionate,playful, purposeful -- and then added intelligent, intuitive, warm, insightful, spiritual, adventurous, very funny, very cute. One friend is looking over my shoulder right now, and dictated the following to me: "your smile lights up a room, your eyes are beautiful and blue and your laugh is fabulous."

I'm passionate about people and what makes them tick, our relationship to each other and the world, and creating community. I tend to balance a serious side with lightness and laughter. I'm a seeker of meaning, and help others seek their own meaning in my work, so I'm always curious to talk to people about their passions and what makes them tick, and our relationship to each other and the world. I don’t care what you do for a living, but I do care that you care about it. And, to illustrate a different side, I have recently gotten in touch with my 14 year old self, and uncharacteristically developed a crush on a musician – and yes, I do laugh at myself over it. Beyond that, I love to be outdoors, spend intimate time with friends, read, hike, go out to dinner, see movies, travel. (You know, the same list as everyone else.) As a transplanted New Yorker (20+ years!), I do have to laugh at how 'Northern California' I have become, but I do retain some basic New York-isms. If this balance between the serious and the silly appeal to you, let's talk.
What I’m doing with my life
While I am not centered around work, I love my work and I am passionate about it. I have a (relatively) new job, which is mostly great, and like all jobs, occasionally a pain. Thankfully, it is mostly great.
I’m really good at
laughing... probably other things, too, but you'll have to find those things out for yourself. I can't reveal everything in an on-line profile. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I can only pass on what I have been told: blue eyes, great smile.
Recently, I also have been told warmth and authenticity. I don't really know how people see 'authenticity', nonetheless, that is the feedback I've gotten.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a deep and abiding, and maybe a little embarassing, weakness for musicals, so extra credit to anyone who is willing to go with me. And, I understand if you roll your eyes! (My current favorite is Spring Awakening, hardly your 'typical' musical comedy.)

I love books -- as I write, I'm rereading the book Ishmael, which I read in '98 -- I remember it having a profound influence on me, and it seemed like it was time to revisit.
The six things I could never do without
The ability to have an impact
My iPad -- which is also my Kindle
The possibility of adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
wouldn't you like to know? :)
On a typical Friday night I am
at dinner with friends. I wonder why they ask about Friday night -- why not Saturday? Aren't most people winding down from a long week on a Friday night?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
hmmm... you'll have to contact me to find out!
You should message me if
you are at all intrigued.
