I'm hoping to find someone who's a little bit wise, irreverent, and playful, with whom I can share a random thought or a belly laugh or an askew observation. I generally like my fellow humans, and really believe most people are doing their best. I've never had a thing for bad boys, but I am attracted to a quiet confidence. I'm also attracted to common decency and humility. I do my best to be inclusive and open, and to cultivate environments in which people can be comfortable and creative and bring their best. I'm a nice person. I'm easily delighted. I'm moved by honesty and connection and affection.
I did gymnastics in high school, circus arts in my 20s, and now favor the athleticism of yoga more than anything that involves a ball. I throw like a girl... I love music a whole lot, and have reconnected with that in the last few years, having achieved profound mediocrity on guitar. I'm collaborative and improvisational by nature. I'll try anything that probably won't kill me.

FOOD: There's no point in listing nations here, because I like pretty much everything. I'll usually opt for trying something new over an old standby. I do particularly like Thai. However I'm a confirmed cilantro hater.
