I believe that it’s best to live with the intention to learn each
day and hope to be admired by strangers for the chance to make them
Sincerity and integrity never go out of style.
I am as comfortable in black tie and a pretty dress as I am to get
dirt under my nails and sand between my toes. You can take me home
and leave me alone with your mother; just as long as she doesn't
know all my secrets and indulgences, nor yours.
Sometimes the most difficult thing to do is to sit still and be
quiet. I am looking for someone to do exactly that and more.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wandering the streets of New York just to experience what it may
bring that day. Learning from others. Listening. Watching birds.
Baking pies at 2 a.m. Making big brunches because there are only 2
days to the weekend. Dressing for dinner. Yoga
. I am an active student of the
everyday. I am an anthropologist in how I observe, understand and
share my experiences. ...but that's not what pays the bills. My 9-5
is within the world of marketing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love, love, love cooking
. To me it is an art, science and
meditation. I love the planning of a meal, shopping for
ingredients, the fuss in the kitchen and sharing the results with
others. I thought about going to cooking school a few times, but it
wasn't the right direction for me. I hope you won’t mind the
occasional night at home to enjoy the toils of the kitchen, even
better if you join me in the kitchen. I am getting better and
better at yoga. I years into a lifetime of practice. I am good a

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I haven't been reading much since my commute vaporized. I
still have to finish Mole People. Extremely Close and Incredibly
Loud has a terrific story and the design of this book is another
joy. The Rand McNally road atlas is longstanding favorite.
Art: Serra. Gaudi. fingerpainting.
Music: Oy. I am all over the place. Yeah, yeah Pandora. But there
are other resources in the interweb. I like Mpr.org's The
Food: My favorites won't fit into this box. I get lost uncovering
things in the USQ green market. I spend full paychecks at Eataly
(on mysterious items that I don't know and can't pronounce).
Thanksgiving at any time of year. Christmas dinner. Have you tried
the bone marrow at Collichio & Sons? I extol the broccoli at
ABC Kitchen. Bourbon taste better while at the lane at Brooklyn
Bowl. I remain suspicious of walnuts, octopus, eel, eggs that are
not properly baked into things, and fiddlehead ferns. I admit to a
love of pricey pizza at Co., mixology and tasting menus; but the
simplicity of cinnamon toast and a glass of milk is often spot on.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I would hate to lose my sight. I am bit hyper active in taking in
details of everything around me.
My yoga practice has kept my mind, body and soul in focus (and
helps to keep my like of good food from showing up here...and
Every task takes the proper tools. I would be an unhappy mess
without my chef's knife and like having a real camera (not just
that other feature to my phone).
Space to wander.
That's 5. I like to leave options and possibilities open for a 6th.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...the story lines of the people that live around me based upon
glimpsing their windows.
...my alter ego on a reality TV show.
...after getting a dining table to seat 6, I like to imagine the
perfect 5 people (living or dead) to invite for a dinner.
Sometimes the closest places can show you the most. I am so very
lucky to live close to the High Line and visit often to catch the
ever changing layers of plantings. Central Park is best experienced
walking from one side to another. MoMA is wonderful, but I have to
get back to PS1, soon. The Hudson Valley. Northern CA. MN because
it's unapologetically beautiful. Wandering through D'Orsay.
Experiencing Rome and Florence with 3x/day gelato tastings. I would

Tate Modern. My visit to South Africa was the most variable and
vibrant place I have ever experienced.
My couch is lovely.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Every Friday night is not typical. My Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays
and Thursdays often resemble other peoples' Fridays. I don't feel
obligated to make Friday any different than the rest of the days,
and sometimes like to end the work week with a re-set at home.
There is nothing like the luxury of making a great meal and putting
the evening's soundtrack on shuffle.

I lived, loved, and learned. New friends and passing pleasure is
fun; but I know what I am wanting and I am making a sincere attempt
to find it: a relationship for the long term, a partner for the
With that in mind, I am also not looking for a penpal, but someone
sincere to meet up without dozens of volleys of messages.
