Versatile,with lots of experience. I lived in Asia for a while, and
am well-traveled. I work in marketing communications in the
financial industry. I've also worked in academia.
I love to talk about in art, literature, yoga, and spirituality.

What I’m doing with my life
Seeking enlightenment while being practical.
I’m really good at
Seeing the big picture. I'm usually on top of current events. I
listen to NPR, read the Times. For fun I sometimes listen to right
wing talk shows. Once I get to know you, it's easy to have long
conversations about a range of topics.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm warm, friendly, and good at conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like modern and contemporary novelists. Some of my recent reads
are Richard Ford's Canada, The Beautiful Ruins and The Financial

I'm incredibly eclectic in music. Jazz, classical and modernist
composers. Too many rock artists to mention. The Kinks, the Stones,

in general. Earlier R.E.M., Patti Smith, and so many others.
The six things I could never do without
Besides family, friends, and material basics: good novels, almonds,
yoga, Whole Foods, Cabernets, and people with a sense of humor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The state of things in general. Politics and ideology. What
motivates people to act the way they do. Work and play. Art and
life. Other big questions. Little ones, too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in the city or doing yoga. Seeing friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm left handed.
