I'm a happy person, with a lot to be thankful for: 2 wonderful
grown-up daughters, many close friends, an interesting job, a cozy
old house in downtown Libertyville, and music. I love to sing and
hear great music. I love to read and travel. I am intellectually
curious and will never stop learning. I am politically liberal, but
I know I don't have all the answers. I am open-minded and enjoy
being challenged by new ideas.
Life is great, but it could be even better if I could share it with
a good and loving man.
What I’m doing with my life
My work involves market research, statistics and industry analysis
(the global electronics industry). I enjoy it, but what really
inspires me is music. I sing with a large semi-professional chorus
and my small church choir, as well as the Elgin Opera occasionally.
I enjoy going to CSO and other concerts. My daughters are more
important to me than anything, of course, and I treasure my
I’m really good at
Music - I have a good ear and a good voice. I'm also a good writer,
speaker and conversationalist. Most importantly, I strive to be

food, I like pretty much everything. My favorite is middle eastern
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, music, books, the outdoors, cats.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Apart from the obvious things -- my family, work, etc. -- I think
about my future and the things I want to do with the rest of my
life. I also think about the future of our country and the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most Friday nights I am too tired to cook. There's a wine bar in
downtown Libertyville, just two blocks from my house where I always
run into friends and neighbors. I sometimes walk over there for a
glass of wine and an appetizer, and I always end up having a fun
evening out with people I like.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still hope to find the love of my life.
