A San Francisco native, I got an English BA from UC Berkeley and am now pursuing an MBA in Marketing at the University of Pittsburgh. I'm currently interning at PPG Industries, marketing chemical coatings. Swing dance champion, I travel up to 40 weekends a year all over the US and Europe to teach, judge, emcee and compete.
Laughter in every step, whimsy and grit hand in hand, I make Happy everywhere I go. I have four core values: relationships, integrity, creativity, and growth. Most importantly, I love my daughter, Hazel June.
I have never heard the answer I'm hoping for when I ask, "What are you looking for in a relationship?" Most list off all their needs, criteria, conditions, what they want to get out of a relationship.
I want to give.
While I'm happy on my own, I'd love to find that one with a soul large enough to house all the love I have to give. Not everyone has a welcome mat or a clear, well-lit path to the core. Intimacy and acceptance are the vision, challenging one another to grow but immovably rooted in "we." In truth (which is inevitable with me), this is a "takes one to know one" scenario.
Until then, I shake my tail feather, squeeze my baby, laugh when it's dark, and grow towards Light.
1. I often dance around the living room, especially to 80's pop or motown.
2. Hazy and I bake 1-3 pies a week.
3. Favorite poem: Stanley Kunitz "Touch Me"
4. Family dinners comprised of side splitting laughter are primarily induced by my Dad and me shooting movie quotes at rapid fire across the dinner table.
Snarfed milk = family bliss.
snarf: verb; to snarf: to laugh while ingesting a fluid, thereby causing said fluid to reverse travel, then to be expelled from the nasal cavity at a high and hilarious velocity.
5. I talk in my sleep. I'm told.
Have a lovely day. :)
(Also, I plan to stay here in Pittsburgh for another 13 years or so, until my daughter turns 18. FYI)
(Also also, I need to be with a Mormon/LDS to be fully happy with my partner, otherwise the most crucial dimension of who I am will ultimately feel lonely. It's the right choice for me. But I am always up for meeting interesting new friends...)
(Also, also, also, I find flirts silly and obnoxious. Use your grown up words, please. :)
