A bit about me...
I am a mix of what seem like unusual contradictions: I am a conservative with a soft spot for leftist counter-cultural movements; I am a Christian with Jewish heritage and an old Jewish soul; I am a foodie and cook with plenty of curves who loves the gym and is dedicated to living a healthy life; and my seemingly straight-laced resume belies an inner wild streak and adrenaline junkie. I'm quirky and cute, smart and funny, and probably overly self-aware.
I'm a positive, energetic and kind person always looking for what is interesting, beautiful and fun. I love having a good time, entertaining, being with friends and trying new things.
I have 11 siblings and about 30 nieces and nephews and I absolutely love the chaos; I've had some pretty interesting jobs including writing disability policy for the White House, writing international drug policy for the DEA, and my current gig catching bad guys for a federal law enforcement agency; cooking is one of my passions and I love trying new and exotic ingredients and recipes; books are my first love; I think Aaron Sorkin is a brilliant writer and I love almost everything he has written even though I agree with very little of it; and there are very few things on my must-have list when it comes to a potential match, but kindness is one of them.
If any of the above sounds interesting, please reach out--I would love to talk to you.
My favorite movies have Cary Grant or Gene Kelly in them--Philadelphia Story, Topper, An American in Paris--but I love movies so there are very few that I absolutely won't watch (except for slasher flicks).
I love live theater and dance performances, as well as live music, but prefer smaller venues to over-produced big-budget shows (Green Day will always be the exception to this rule).
I don't know that I can choose a favorite food either, but certainly the list would include bacon, kale, beets, kabobs, cheeses, seasonal vegetables, oranges right off the tree during citrus season, curries (Indian, Thai, you name it), BBQ and chocolate chip cookies. I am the child of an amazing baker (my mother) and a former BBQ restaurant owner/cook (my father) and from my childhood we have spent much of our time together as a family in the kitchen. Brunch is probably (definitely) my favorite meal.
Also, walking el Camino de Santiago someday.
