ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm originally from California, but went to school in Chicago, where I learned to appreciate good midwest sensibilities, film, and snow. Lived in Portugal and New Orleans, but have called SF (now Oakland) my home for a long time now. I'm the director of a non-profit educational travel program, putting together adventures for people to see the world and learn. My work has taken me around the world - from Siberia to Easter Island. I've loved lots of places but in terms of personal travel - Nepal, Cuba, New Orleans, Spain, and the Sierras are at the top of the list. I am drawn to mountains, camping and long hikes, and have fantasies of backpacking along (some of) the Pacific Crest Trail. Gift cards from Bloomingdales or REI are met with equal amounts of glee. I love cities too, and am happy in New York and Paris exploring the vibrant energy of urban creativity.

Live music has been a pretty solid staple in my life and fuels my soul. I make an annual trip to New Orleans, and take in shows at the Fox, Independent or Fillmore. (A couple recent ones -Thievery Corporation, Andrew Bird.) I'm into cooking and having dinner parties and love the nights when conversations circle around ideas, books, and current events, accompanied with good wine and witty banter. I have collected art during my travels and it is something that gives me a lot of joy and ties me back to all the people I've met. I go through phases of being pretty active with photography, and still have my first manual Pentax for nostalgic reasons. Family and community are necessary, and I look to share that with someone. My friends comment on my wit and that they know I'm someone they can call a 3am. I get to yoga once a week, and boot camp a couple times a week, and run too. I like going out, but I'm perfectly content staying in - sharing a good movie and wine at home after a long day is downright dreamy at times.

I am drawn to people that are genuine and open-hearted, warm and affectionate. Integrity and honesty and an ability to laugh at one's mistakes is important. I want to be with someone that wants to grow and love and make something big and beautiful. You want a best friend and a lover, a playmate and partner, the whole package. You are funny, smart, kind, curious, ambitious, financially together, are a good friend, and wake up happy most days. (Not every day, but most!) You know by now, that happiness is about what you put in the big mix of life. I could keep making up lists, but in the end it's usually a mysterious something that works, isn't it? Call it chemistry or connection - without it none of these details matter. There must be a trick within this very unnatural way of online profiling where we find that wonderfully organic click. Good luck!
