Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just moved back to the area after a few years away for grad school
at Carnegie Mellon in PGH (arts and nonprofit mgmt, and public
policy). It always strikes me how much people move around; I've
mostly stuck to MA and love it here. Traveling is a big love of
mine, too, though. Often, I've found myself traveling alone;
looking for pals for fun in more of Europe and the rest of the
Fundraising for the arts and education is my profession. For the
first time in my life, I'm fulfilled by the work I do everyday.
I've always worked hard and enjoyed it, but now I feel good about
the work, too. Some folks are fine treating their job as a job and
little more; I'm one of those people who seeks something more than
a way to pay the bills.
Friends and family are very important to me and it's one of the
things that keeps me in this area. It's not to say I'll never move
away for good reason, but I love Boston, Cambridge, Somerville...
all our little neighborhoods, especially the historic little
towns... just a short drive in most directions over to the ocean,
out to the country, or up to the mountains.
My sense of humor is clever, if a little perverse. I am loyal and
energetic, though I really dig quiet time to myself, too. I'm not a
girly-girl; I've always wanted to be an Indiana Jones-like
archeologist. I do love getting fancy for a night out and my
feminine side is showing most of the time. I've got style and like
to surround myself with beautiful things... furnishing my apartment
has been fun these last few months. I try to be frugal and I am not
materialistic. Friends describe me as low maintenance and salt of
the earth (what does that mean, anyway?).
What am I looking for in a man? An intellectual, who will share the
NY Times on Sunday mornings over good coffee and a savory brunch.
Someone who enjoys live classical music as much as he does some
good old rock n roll; an art show as much as a football game,
American or otherwise. A creative partner, a dog lover, someone who
will inspire even more joy into my life. A bit of a foodie and
booze snob. A little sexy, a little edgy, and a nice mix of

- getting cars outta snow
- hosting great parties
- deep sea fishing

- pigeon pose
- making fires, whether on the beach, in the woods, or at
- hopefully soon I'll be good at long distance endurance cycling;
this is part of how I'm spending my most recent bonus.
