The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about connecting: to new ideas, to great people, to different cultures, experiences, perspectives. Be it through music, words, shared laughter, or just sitting next to each other, I think the greatest, most important experiences in life are found in that space between- that connection.
I typically spend my leisure time
Too many things to summarize in this little box.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm not sure it's possible to articulate a single most important quality. I'm definitely looking for keen intelligence, a sense of adventure, patience, strength, curiosity, passion, and fun. If I had to boil it down to one quality, it would be whatever quality a person has who has a favorite New York Times columnist and who wants to join me in finding the best spot for coffee in whatever city we're in. I'm looking for someone who is a creator, an artistic of some thought, and who is deeply kind and compassionate.
The first thing people notice about me
People often think I'm "from there." No matter where I am in the world, people ask me directions.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm always reading magazines (new yorker, atlantic monthly, ny review of books) as well as fiction, nonfiction, poetry. I've just started "the Elegance of the Hedgehog"- too early to give it a review here.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my family

I have a great (but understated) sense of humor. Once won an improv contest...
