My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there! Thanks for stopping by to check out my profile.

My close friends would say I am young at heart and spirit, intellectually curious and adventurous.... always seeking to new experiences, new challenges. I would say I am an activist at heart, initially a bit shy, low key, more of a listener, and someone who takes the time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life like nature, an open starry night, an interesting conversation, and the artwork that surrounds us all the time but which we are too busy or distracted to notice. For sure, I never take anything for granted and always appreciate what I have. I am open minded, honest and loyal. I enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities such as running, climbing, biking, tennis, hiking, cycling, skiing, soccer, ultimate frisbee, and the ocean. I love films and am an aficionado of NYC's vibrant artistic, cultural, and food offerings.

I love traveling (who doesn't?) and have lived in seven different countries.

Professionally, I have been working in the NYC nonprofit arena for the past 20 years directing and developing programs that serve vulnerable populations for organizations that focus on social justice, reducing poverty and improving people's health.

My work, music, books, art, photography, physical activity, adventure, traveling, a lively conversation, and most of all - my son - are my passions.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conjuring up interesting and tasty meals (used to be a chef in a past career). Making a great cup of coffee. Listening. Making music compilations (used to be a DJ too). Photography. Getting along with people. Connecting people.

The vibrant colors of New York's autumn

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can make a bigger difference.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have no typical Friday nights. I enjoy spending the evening with friends over a good meal, wine and conversation; going on food adventures anywhere in the city; checking out an outdoor concert; going to a good film; or taking walks when the weather is nice and eating outdoors. Lately I have been going to MOMA fairly regularly for their free Friday nights.

For me to know and you to find out!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If anything I wrote resonates with you. Hopefully you are physically active, inquisitive, passionate, love the outdoors, and the arts and see New York City and its surrounding environs as an opportunity for exploration and adventure on many fronts. Extra points if you love hiking, playing soccer and/or tennis, and surfing/body surfing.
