Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not afraid of spiders. I am the worst frisbee player the world
has ever seen, but I love to play. Seasonally-appropriate beer
makes me happy. Pine nuts are vile, but I've never met an avocado I
didn't like. I think people who use "LOL" really need to earn it. I
live in Manhattan but have Brooklyn envy. Dreaming of a time where
a log cabin in the woods might replace my city living altogether,
but taking major advantage of living here now.
I have no problem jumping into a pile of leaves or a pond, because
I'm the last person to worry about my hair or whether my mascara is
running. I'm also pretty fearless when it comes to new or
challenging situations. My family and friends mean the world to me.
I'm happy in my own skin, and feel incredibly lucky to have the
life I have.
Not into saying "I" this much.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have an incredible job as a facilitator in a financial markets
company, and am in parallel pursuing musical theater as a lifelong
goal. I'm also considering a return to school for veterinary
medicine. Ya know. Like you do.
What else. I volunteer with NY Cares. I find any excuse to be
outside, particularly in the fall. I see plays and musicals and
concerts. I just bought a bike and am busily planning my Central
Park routes. I am trying to learn to cook. I am trying not to burn
down my apartment while trying to learn to cook.
I'm an aunt. My niece is super, and we get along well because she
is not intimidated by my towering stature.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Creating great leaf piles for jumping purposes
- Pivot tables
- Dog, cat and wildlife whispering
- Making friends with children
- Getting lost in foreign countries and being excited about it
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Cards, Mad Men, Silicon Valley, PBS, NPR, history channel, animal

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my family (not "a thing", I know)
3. soda stream
4. my grandma's recipe collection
6. trees to chill under
6. great theater
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why are car pictures and selfies such a thing? And dudes holding up
dead fish? What's the draw here?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
not sitting in front of this computer
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once poured vegetable oil over a mouse to rescue him from a
sticky trap. It was a successful mission, and I'm sure he is living
a long and happy life in someone else's kitchen.
Also - I'm pretty independent and I have a hard time asking people
for help. This can be a good thing, but when I am in a Food
Emporium trying to reach a box of Nilla Wafers on the high shelf -
not so much. I think those clowns are still talking about the time
that the short girl literally took down an entire shelf of snack
products and twisted her ankle in the process, just to get a damn
box of nilla wafers.
Lastly, James Taylor sometimes comes up on my Simon and Garfunkel
pandora station, and I don't always skip him.

...you are any of the following: creative, passionate, artistic,
musical, funny, geeky, outdoorsy, kind to other people, kind to
animals, not afraid of getting dirty, and/or contribute in some
cool way to the universe and to others.
I'm looking for something special. One night stands are not really
my speed. That said - I'm also not a big fan of emailing back and
forth for weeks and weeks, so if you think we might enjoy our
mutual company, hit me up and let's hang out. Also, I'm not shy
about emailing first if I think a profile is cool. So, there's
No smokers please. And if you hunt animals for the fun of it, we
probably won't get along.
