After a decade of living in Philly, I moved back home to NYC in 2012 and there are days when I can't remember why I ever left... Which was- to go to grad school in Texas (Hook Em!) and then spend almost 10 years working on a once in a lifetime opportunity to help relocate a museum- it's not very often that one gets to move a museum- super interesting and very intense experience. One great perk is that I now have a ton of very cool friends who work at or run some of the best museums in the world. Oh and Philadelphia is an amazing town- great food, great culture, great music- managed to live there for a decade and remain faithful to my NY Giants.
I moved back home to be closer to my family and to really just "be home" if that makes sense. I've stayed in the non-profit sector and nowadays I work at a small independent school in Manhattan that is truly a magical place. I am your typical former Peace Corps general do-gooder (served in Thailand and got to travel the world... I've been to India, Nepal, China, Thailand(of course)- took the Trans-Siberian Railroad home (through China, Mongolia and Russia) from my Peace Corps service... seemed like a fun way to go.).
I love kids and would be delighted if they were part of my life one way or another either as a parent or as a step-parent, or perhaps just continuing to be the amazingly cool aunt I am now- at least according to my 10+ nieces and nephews.
I'd like to think that I am looking for what everyone is looking for- someone to hold my hand, make me laugh and smile, share fun days and long fun nights with..... My life is pretty great and I feel lucky and blessed- the only thing it seems to be missing is "You."
