My self-summary
I'm originally from the Mid-West; fortunately I escaped relatively unscathed and have lived in St. Louis, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Waikiki, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and currently San Juan, PR. I believe in karma, the golden rule, respecting the earth, good lighting and the tried and true philosophy of laughter being the best medicine. I vote for the candidate, not the party and always look both ways before crossing the street.

I am inspired, driven, and passionate.
What I’m doing with my life
Designer/developer by trade; traveler, conversationalist, lover, instigator, explorer, snake charmer. I'm trying, in my own way, to affect positive change in the world via charities, political action and good old fashioned responsible living (well, most of the time). As Goethe said, "Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do."
I’m really good at
Kissing. Making an awesome dirty marty and eggs benedict. Oh, and organizing- I love P-touching anything that will stand still.

No comment ;)
You should message me if
You feel like getting to know someone real, have a dark/wry sense of humor and love animals. Or you've had a few drinks and I seem especially witty/cute/(insert your flattering adjective here).
