I believe truly that life is for living and I have some damn funny
(and not quite so funny) stories to tell. I've had the same group
of friends since grade school, which I think speaks to the fact
that I am a fun person to spend time with. I am an eternal optimist
and a firm believer that laughter makes everything more enjoyable.
I have worked in online advertising for the past thirteen plus
years and consider myself quite fortunate to not only like my job,
but my company and industry as well. I have great sense of
adventure, a huge heart and I'm as open minded as anyone I've ever
met. At any given time that I'm not working you'll find me on a
bike, exploring the city, hiking/skiing in CT, VT or upstate NY or
doing some other outdoor physical activity. I have a great passion
for music and art, so if I cannot be outside, I enjoy listening to
live music, frequenting museums, art galleries, record stores,
bookstores, going to the movies and of course, visiting new
restaurants as often as possible. My adventurous personality
definitely carries over into my eating and I love trying new foods
and new restaurants as often as possible. I also have a serious
chocolate addiction (dark), as well as an addiction to other sugary
substances and all the cereals I was not allowed to have when I was
a kid. I enjoy cooking (I have a culinary degree) and cook on a
regular basis. I believe that the chocolate chip cookie is the
finest culinary creation of all time, watermelon is the greatest
food born of this earth and my last meal would definitely be sushi.
I would like to note at this point that I work out at least four or
five times a week to keep all this eating in check.
I'm a big dog person (animals and mother nature in general) and
while i don't own one now, I definitely will some day
I have a small but great family that I am very close with. I was
raised with an understanding and appreciation of good manners,
respect and an overall understanding that you treat people how you
want to be treated.
