ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Irish/English grandparents, NYC parents, grew up in Dallas, Texas. Ping-ponged from being the beloved baby of a large and awesome family to a socially awkward/rebellious elementary school student (I despised the simpletons that surrounded me) to the guy every mom wanted her daughter to date in high school (I learned to appreciate the simpletons). Got into Stanford but went to UCLA because I wanted to be a rock star (every now and then, I make inane choices), which brought me out to the city of angels where I became a journalist.

Sunny/funny disposition with a lot of either mixed-up or well-balanced traits depending on your POV. I'm practical, objective, totally down-to-earth and fancy myself a gentleman. At the same time, I'm extremely open-minded, adventurous and have a healthy dose of the bohemian in me. I write words for a living (and songs for a dying, lol) In my spare time, I'm a glutton for new experiences and love a good adventure: Learning to fly a plane, scuba diving, sailing, skydiving, horseback riding, snowboarding... you name it, I've at least tried it. I also own a pretty badass Moto Guzzi motorcycle and still get a buzz every time I get on it. LOVE taking road trips. In fact, nothing inspires me more than travel (I have dual US/EU citizenship via Ireland and have visited 30 countries on four continents... So far :)

I have lived through a huge earthquake, watched a volcano erupt, seen Mount Everest, swum in the Ganges and met the Dalai Lama (big shocker, he's really nice). My glass isn't just half-full, it's overflowing... Even the spillage is delicious. I'm looking for a smart, fit, fun, beautiful girl who feels the same way.

Interests:
Camping, Coffee and conversation, Cooking, Dining out, Gardening/Landscaping, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Nightclubs/Dancing, Performing arts, Playing sports, Political interests, Shopping/Antiques, Travel/Sightseeing, Volunteering, Wine tasting
Sports & exercise:
Billiards / Pool, Bowling, Cycling, Dancing, Running, Skiing, Swimming, Tennis / Racquet sports, Walking / Hiking, Weights / Machines, Yoga, Other types of exercise, VolleyBall
Exercise habits:
I exercise 5 or more times per week
Pets:
I have Cats
Pet Essay:

My cat is cooler than your dog... Can I talk about music now? I've played a handful of instruments since I was a kid and freelance for SPIN so music is a big part of my life. I'm into everything from the ancient to the au courant trendy trash.

Political views:
Liberal
Sign:
Sagittarius
College:
University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA
For fun:

In addition to regularly ruining my eardrums in EchoSilverWood, I dig art openings (lowbrow), comedy shows (highbrow) and nature (unibrow lol): hiking, camping, biking, swimming, etc. And I love knocking back some good booze and dancing with friends.

Favorite hot spots:

I HEART India (especially Dharamsala), Nepal, Spain, particularly Madrid, Granada, Barcelona and the Costa Brava; Thailand, especially Koh Phangan (all the Kohs, really :); Prague, Budapest, Marrakesh (if you can bypass Tangier), Hong Kong...

Favorite things:

Fave films: Buffalo 66, Lawrence of Arabia, Gandhi, Meeting People Is Easy, Withnail and I, Time Bandits, Brazil, American Beauty, Fight Club, Matrix, Head, The Battle of Algiers. TV: House, Family Guy, Globetrekker. FM: This American Life, Radiolab

Last read:

Thanks to expiring airline miles, I'm currently awash in Time, the Economist, GQ and Details. All time fave reads: A Fan's Notes, Tropic of Capricorn, Naked Lunch, Siddhartha, the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, 100 Years of Solitude, War & Peace
