I love to travel. I just got back from a scuba diving trip to the Philippines. In the last few years I've been to Western and Central Europe, Colombia, Costa Rica, Honduras, Iceland, Turks and Caicos and all over Asia, but my favorite trips are always to the beach and where I can snorkel/dive.
I'm really into underwater photography (a few of my pics are in my photos here). Other interests are snowboarding, hiking and playing basketball and tennis...I was a tennis teacher when I was younger. I like to spend time with friends in the city checking out new bars and restaurants, listening to live music (recently getting into jazz), going to an occasional show or game, etc., but also enjoy staying in on a Fri or Sat night sometimes and relaxing with a movie and a glass of wine.
Some of my best friends are still outside of NY in Hong Kong, Philly (where I am from), Boston (where I went to school), Colorado and Cali... I go to visit as often as I can! I went to college at Penn State and law school at Boston College.
Family means a lot to me. I have one sister who lives with her husband and my really cute niece in India. The rest of my family is in Vermont and Florida. I am hoping to have a family of my own when the time is right.
I studied Japanese in law school and was working to pick up Mandarin (but not Cantonese unfortunately) while I was living in HK. I really love languages and am always interested in picking up a few words (or more) in new languages.
