I enjoy a wide variety of adventures from reading, hiking, traveling, art, cultural events, biking, running (Beach to Beacon!!!) to volunteering with Portland area non profits (especially animal shelters). Getting into photography now too!!
Travel is a big part of my life. Besides Maine, my favorite places are Colorado (Boulder), Wyoming (Jackson Hole), France, Switzerland (Alps!) Tokyo, Italy, Hong Kong and Singapore. I love to immerse myself in the daily rituals of life in cities like Paris and Rome by exploring back alleys and busy streets, and by sitting and watching life unfold. Just got back from Amsterdam and Paris and already planning another European adventure. Love to find a great travel partner.
I am well educated and love to learn. I have two advanced degrees and enjoy continually expanding and challenging my knowledge and perceptions about this great world. I am especially intrigued these days by science (meteorology, climate change, astronomy, archeology and geography), history (ancient, European around WWI and WWII and American) and art (learning about post-impressionism and abstract). The more I explore the more I am humbled by what I don't know.
Although I am a lawyer (don't hate me!!), I am currently keeping busy as a mediator and looking to find a niche in environmental law helping the planet and its animals. My focus still remains remains though on volunteering, traveling, writing, learning and just enjoying life.
I am hoping to connect soon with a fun loving woman who enjoys exploring our planet.
