My self-summary
World traveler, I prefer cemeteries to museums, off the beaten path to a checklist. My travel adventures have taken me east to South India (Goa and the Arabian Sea stole my heart), north to Montreal one of the most fun cities, south to Nicaragua where I learned how to surf and witnessed the phenomena of volcano boarding and west to California to visit friends and family, with Hawaii up next. There are a couple of dozen other places too, including Sicily home to my family roots.

After a long year of searching, I'm excited to share I now own a BK pad. It's closer to the city with a fantastic view of lower Manhattan, just a stone's throw from Barclays Center.

For as much as I enjoy the four seasons, I really LOVE the summer (even those real hot, humid days). Not having to wear a jacket, filling up on Vitamin D, I love how the sunshine puts a smile on almost everyone's face.

I am a people person. I have met some of my best friends from serendipitous conversations. I believe in being nice, sharing good karma, greeting everyone with a smile and mindful intention.

Photography is a hobby, a second love to writing. I'm usually the one behind the camera and prefer capturing buildings and candids to portraits and stills. I <3 Instagram! I'm an active participant in life and you are more likely to find me out in the world than at home on the couch or in a movie theatre. Other interests include experimental theater, scavenger hunts, burlesque, pub crawls, poetry slams, scrabble, dancing, karaoke.

I'm here to meet new people, make friends and see where life takes us. If you're interested in connecting ask me a question, tell me something about yourself but please do not send me a novella. I cringe at grammar snafus, misspellings in particular. The lack of attention to details tells so much about a person.

I'm looking for someone to share the adventures and recount the stories. Someone who knows who they are, someone comfortable in their own skin, who doesn't take themselves quite so seriously. I want to LOL with abandonment and feel free and silly when the urge occurs. I want a partner, a friend, a lover to lean on, and into, when the going gets rough and the celebrations are plenty. Could that person be you?
What I’m doing with my life
Write, edit, manage words and ideas; though not necessarily in that order. I love what I do, and the people I work with. Life is too short and I’m consciously aware of that every day.

Traveling whenever I can...a few road trips on the horizon, then we'll see what's next...on my bucket list: Belize, returning to antigua, Easter Island, Chile. Looking forward to Hawaii later in the spring and Kenya in 2016.

Cooking, I love entertaining with friends, and host an annual moonlight soiree (this year the view should be spectacular).
I’m really good at
remembering people's faces, I'm sure I've startled a few people with that "Don't I know you?" question. LOL.

discovering fun things to do, I'm a modern day Julie McCoy.

A friend recently pointed out that I have this talent of connecting people places things. I asked her to describe it for me and here's what she said: "It isn't just a matter of being outgoing or easy to talk to, which you are, but you're generous with your friends and networks. Lots of people segment their lives ("these are my work friends", "these are my college friends") but you do a good job of blending the things and people that make you happy. Being a connector also means that you're excellent at reading people very quickly. You notice specific details about someone and then know to hook them up with great events, jobs, and even friends. This makes the people you encounter feel really special."
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: I prefer indies to mainstream—I am rarely inspired to go to a movie theater these days.


Books: I am a voracious reader and often find myself reading multiple books at once until one storyline claims victory. I am currently reading faceless killers. I love my Paperwhite and have not given up on the carrying thick books in hardcover--Counte of Monte Cristo, Tibetan Book of Living & Dying. If you are a reader, I highly recommend the GoodReads app to track yourself.

I love browsing independent, off the beaten path bookstores for early editions of Voltaire, Oscar Wilde, Dumas, Eco and Dante.


Music: I <3 live music and karaoke. I try to a attend 2-3 performances a month. I grew up in the 80s, and also love ambient chill and electronica--some favorites include: New Order, Psychedelic Furs, Amon Tobin, Verve, Sade, Patti Smith, Kylie Minogue, Morcheeba, chicane, Owl City, Matchbox20, Maroon5, Train, The Script, OMD.


TV: I've canceled my cable and opting for the high speed internet route of roku & apple TV. I'd much rather be out in the world then glued to a flat screen--although I am a die hard fan of person of interest, NCIS, criminal minds & Blue Bloods.


Food: I pretty much eat across all food groups with Seafood, Italian, Moroccan, Thai being my favorites.
The six things I could never do without
My passport & the memories that come with it
Family, an amalgamation of blood relatives and dear friends (both human and animal)
Creativity through art, words, photography
The ocean, the beach
I spend a lot of time thinking about
jimmies, dots or sprinkles?
where to go on my next vacation.
what I should consume next (book, music, art).
where the clutter comes from--I feel like I spring clean in all seasons, why is that?
On a typical Friday night I am
hmm, that's a tough one if anything Friday nights are atypical...I could be almost anywhere: at a concert, or a movie, a friend's place for dinner, watching Tom Selleck on the couch with my cat Rocky, at an Armory exhibit, catching performance art. Anything is possible.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm suspicious of people who don't like to travel.
You should message me if
Your interest has been piqued, and you smiled at least once when reading my profile.
You have a healthy outlook on life, are genuinely happy and comfortable in your own skin.
You're genuinely interested in getting to know one another on email first (no IMs please) then in-person.
Single only. Please no smoking, drugs, drama or games.
