ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I am a Midwestern transplant, who was happily living in San Francisco for several years and has recently moved out to Philly.

My hobbies run the gamut: I like to draw, hike, and cook. I also garden a bit. I like learning languages and have learned you can do so through hard work if you are not a natural language learner (French, Swahili, Somali, and a tiny bit of Arabic are currently on my list).

I got back from fieldwork in Kenya about a year and a half ago and just finished my PhD in the humanities (I don't work in development--people always ask). Now I am doing a post-doc. In a previous life, I taught high school for two exhausting years, which I loved.

I think I have an unusual combination of personality traits--or so I have been told. I love finding hidden integrity in people and I admire intelligence, hard work, a willingness to take (appropriate) risks, and the ability to adapt to radically different settings. And people who manage, somehow, to be both open-minded and cynical.

I also like living and spending time in unconventional settings (I recently spent about a year and a half living off of dry land, for example). I don't like fretting about the little things in life and I would be perfectly happy with someone who was a bit disorganized or who didn't make a six figure salary, as long as he was caring, intelligent, passionate about his work, and up for adventures. I seem to get along better with the more logical, rational types--maybe a sign that I'm not one of them. :)

I am here looking to meet fun, sincere people and ideally something more serious. Because I am new to the Philly area, I am also just looking to meet potential friends.

Interests:
Book club, Coffee and conversation, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Performing arts, Political interests, Travel/Sightseeing, Wine tasting
Sports & exercise:
Cycling, Skiing, Walking / Hiking, Weights / Machines
Exercise habits:
I exercise 1-2 times per week

Pet Essay:

For fun:

Surrounding myself with amazing friends. A camping trip maybe. A night out at a club on the very rare occasion. Or catching a film or a concert. I rarely turn down new experiences, but I also don't have very regimented things that I "have" to do.

Favorite hot spots:

The cities that feel most like home away from home for me are Tel Aviv, where I have family, and Nairobi, where I do research. I also love Szeged and Addis Ababa. Croatia and Berlin are on my list...

Favorite things:

Books: Cheese and the Worms, Tin Drum, Blind Assassin
Movies: The Crying Game, White Mischief, Chinatown
