I believe in intimacy and adventure. I want to see the world and meet the people in it, and I want to form genuine, deep connections -- especially with a partner. That feeling of being vulnerable and open and totally in love? Yeah, that.
So my story: I grew up in Northern California, the child of hippies who became Orthodox Jews. I love the natural beauty there, but I came to New York for college and ended up staying. I've always been a writer of one kind or another -- technical, marketing, diplomatic speeches -- except when I was teaching English in South Korea. When I got out of college, I went off to India and Nepal by myself for four months, and I still love that kind of experience: deep immersion in a challenging, surprising new place. But I also love a week in Paris in the spring, or relaxing on the beach in Playa del Carmen.
When I'm not galavanting about the globe, I'm usually out with friends, or meeting new people, or spending some time at home in Brooklyn Heights, probably reading a history of China and listening to Radiohead or watching The Daily Show. I love music and have catholic tastes. I'm fascinated by the Silk Road and by East Asia, and I'm hoping to go back to school for a master's degree in Asian Studies (but without quitting my corporate job). I'm a decent swing dancer.
