Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Following years in finance, the recession helped me make the long
overdue jump from volunteering in soup kitchens to actually running
one...the beginning of a productive, rewarding and fun
My vacations call for variety...last year they included an
adventure to Peru (Machu Picchu, rafting & hiking, improving my
spanish), a relaxing stay on the beach, and a strenuous excursion
to California for a salsa boot camp extravaganza. If you like salsa
or swing, you’re in good hands.
Dust off your bicycle and let’s get ready for this year’s “5 Boro
Bike Tour.” I’m also lucky to have easy access to one of the city’s
oldest parks (in Hell’s Kitchen where the Sharks and Jets battled)
for shooting baskets.
I like splurging on wine and laundry, though I must be extremely
careful with the latter – apparently there was some laundry/dry
cleaner’s convention at which they decided: PERFECTLY OK to shrink
x-tall clothing in half!
Oh, and I'm often driving home for a visit with my two energetic
nieces (12 & 13); they've been calling me chicken, even though
I've told them, "any time any where," I'm ready for that Wii
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Keeping it balanced. I’m passionate about what I do, but make time
for family and friends. Ready to move on in my personal life too

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Connecting with just about anyone.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Seeing old friends, making new ones, new adventures, all four
seasons, cycling the West Side Highway at sunset, and pancakes
(organic blend, if it's your preference) on Sun morn.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
