Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love my job teaching English at a middle school in Los Angeles. I
enjoy traveling, learning about other cultures, and learning
languages. I speak English and Spanish, I can read Hebrew, and I'm
hoping to start studying Mandarin Chinese, Korean, or Japanese
sometime this year.
In addition to teaching, I work in film production as a
producer/production manager on independent films - which is why I
came to California in the 1980s shortly after college. I'm hoping
to produce and possibly direct a short film from one of my own
screenplays sometime later this year.
My passions include reading, collecting various things (among them
books), writing, and photography, as well as almost any cultural
event - especially if it involves food! :) I enjoy the outdoors. I
used to be a ski racer many years ago, and since my 30s I've been
active as a player and manager in competitive softball. Last year I
started doing Yoga. I can already see the difference, but the heat
is crazy! LOL I'm currently looking for a more humane studio.
I grew up listening to Motown on AM radio, and good old-fashioned
Rock 'n' Roll, but I think Blues is in my blood. :) I returned to
study guitar this year after a long absence, and I'm focusing on
In the last two years I have gotten involved in a few
charity/community service projects which has been enormously
rewarding. Helping others is a passion of mine, and I've finally
found a way to be able to do so in a number of ways that really
make a difference. I fel blessed to have this opportunity.
I was raised in a close family where we learned that treating
others with respect is paramount, education is a joy in itself, and
doing your best is the only way.
I'm looking for a nice, kind, fun, down-to-earth, yet classy woman
who is interested in having a loving relationship with a quality

My family; my ancestors (and how lucky I am); my writing; my
teaching; enjoying life; making the world a better place through
good deeds and good work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Happily exhausted from a good week of teaching, eating a nice
dinner, and watching baseball on the couch until I fall asleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
