Since growing up in Mill Valley, I’ve been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to explore the world and do interesting work. I served in the Clinton White House, helped create a television network, designed concert halls, and managed climate change work in Southeast Asia. Now, I am happy to be home, working as the founder of a clean energy start-up company.
The truth is, though, while I enjoy meaningful work, it does not define me. Nothing makes me happier than spending time with friends and family, especially my enchanting eight-year-old daughter. I enjoy very different kinds of people and have an ecclectic group of friends, some of whom I've known since grade school. Having come of age in Northern California in the 1970s and 1980s, I don't place a lot of value on material things, and nature, art, community, and helping those in need matter to me. I’ve worked with refugees and run a Special Olympics program, and seek to build community wherever I can.
But I like fun and adventure too – from just kicking a soccer ball around with my daughter, to flying in an F-18 fighter jet, to being chased out of my own campsite by a hippopotamus. Don’t worry, I won’t try that one again. Music is a passion. I compose and I play the guitar, but more than anything I just enjoy it. I used to run competitively, but now I just do it for fun.
How about you? I’d like to find a companion for hiking, weekend outings, going to a baseball game, exploring. If we spend time together, I will take great pleasure in trying to make you laugh until your eyes water, and I would be delighted if you would aim to return the favor. I think you’ll find that I’m an easy audience. I’d like to find someone who looks for meaning in work beyond just the money, and stands by her family and friends, especially when things are tough. Do you like to sing? I’ll be your backup band.
If you’ve read this far and think we could be a good match, please don’t be shy – send me a note.
