Originally from Pennsylvania, I've happily lived on the West Coast
for some time now. I'd desribe myself as articulate, warm,
intellectually curious and compassionate. My friends and family
would readily describe me as a very loyal and caring person. I have
a deep appreciation for nature and wild animals, and find as much
delight in watching a hummingbird as in stepping out to the opera.
What I’m doing with my life
I've actually had 3 professions....the first as a teacher, the
second in advertising management and currently I'm working as a
marketing consultant. I'm a big believer in balance, though, so I
also have many interests and hobbies including hiking, live music,
tennis, theater, traveling and reading.
I’m really good at
Writing, chatting in foreign languages, cooking and helping others.
I'm also really good at sipping fine wines, conversing on a variety
of topics and enjoying San Francisco!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile :)
My green eyes and warm presence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of
Vanities and John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
are a few favorites. Love going to the SF Symphony, particularly
fond of anything by Brahms, Beethoven and Chopin. Afficionado of
live jazz, blues and funk as well, and enjoy going to local clubs
such as Yoshis. Great food is awfullly important as well....never
get enough fresh salmon, salads and fine chocolates!
The six things I could never do without
Close friends, coffee, nature, music, books and humor (and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...hmm...how to be a good human being, the aspirations of people I
love and what is enticing me for dinner...(order of these things
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying a glass of wine with a close friend or hearing live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, I have to confess to being a member of CAA...my own acronym
which stands for Coffee Addicts Anonymous....take it or leave
it...I'm not your type if you think coffee is detrimental to one's
You should message me if
...you value lively conversation, consider yourself to be a great
friend, appreciate nature and have a good sense of humor! Also,
it's important that you have some degree of self-awareness and can
talk about your strengths and weaknesses.
