I've been told I'm a great listener and a calming presence. While I value sincerity, I have an absurd sense of humor. And I have a pretty ridiculous uninhibited laugh, but you might have to unleash it.
I love the energy of the city, but appreciate stillness and silence and the outdoors even more (I'm from Maine, it never leaves you). Pursuing the beautiful things in life is what interests me most.
I'm super liberal and try to be engaged with issues of social & economic justice when i can. But I'd like to be more actively involved than I am right now.
