I'm really big on family and spend as much time as I can with my friends. I live an active and balanced life and I'm always up for trying something new. I love the outdoors year round but especially in the summer. Outdoor concerts and baseball games are a rite of passage and no summer is complete without going to a few of each. While I really enjoy cooking, checking out new restaurants and bars in the city is something I love to do. Whether it's David Burke's newest outpost or a hole in the wall Vietnamese restaurant I'm there!
What I’m doing with my life
Graduated from school in upstate New York and spent the first few years working in the energy industry before switching to the tech industry. I work in Manhattan and just moved to NJ after a few years in the Financial District. After sitting at a desk all day, I definitely have a propensity for being active. I try to mix things up by going rock climbing, hiking, joining a running club, going to the gym and playing tennis. While basketball isn't my best sport, I am a volunteer coach for 4th graders. The height advantage I have on them definitely makes up for my weak outside shot.
I’m really good at
Waking up early
Getting my money's worth at all-you-can eat mussels night

The six things I could never do without
My family dog, a Shiba Inu
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where can I travel to next? Whether it's the Cloisters or Cape
You should message me if
Your idea of a great first date involves you taking me to the
fanciest restaurant in the city where I will proceed to drink too
much and talk about myself the entire time. Or if you have a sense
of sarcasm. Disclaimer to diabetics, I'm really sweet.
