I'm a born and bred New Yorker.
I've also lived in Savannah GA, France and Italy.
I, also, enjoy "traveling" and "spending time with my friends and family".
I have about as many close female friends as I do male.
If I ever chose to not live in a city, it would likely mean moving to the country. I don't feel at ease in the suburbs.
I find the term "hipster" and its convoluted meaning to be amusing and often ridiculous.
I live to eat, don't eat to live. I prefer wine over beer and fish over meat. My favorite cocktails usually have Bourbon in them.
The arts are a big part of my life... especially film and photography.
I have a dual Italian passport and it's one of my favorite possessions.
Old black and white photographs of my grandparents are also some of my favorite possessions.
I believe spending time outside your comfort zone is the best way to truly get to know yourself.
My favorite rock star is Keith Richards. I have wikipedia-esque knowledge of the Rolling Stones.
I'm an eternal balance seeker. I think it's key.
I have a regular yoga practice and also run. I would be insane without this.
I think making new mistakes is important as long as they're not the same ones over and over again. The few regrets I carry with me are generally toward things in life that I didn't do.
I think modern day technology is amazing, yet also believe it's a double edged sword which continues to water down human interaction. I'm always up to discuss this topic and it's many positive and adverse effects.
I want to spend three months just driving across the USA exploring this immense, complex and diverse nation. Someday, I will.
I have little tolerance for ignorant and/or judgmental people.
I've always thrived on being around diverse types of people( ie. I've never had just one core "group" of friends no matter where I've been. I was that kid in high school who would float to a different lunch table each day.) I definitely like women who can harmonize with different groups/environments also.
Generally speaking, I'd consider myself goal oriented/ambitious and enjoy a plethora of things and activities... That being said, I believe the simple things and meaningful connections with others and those you love are the foundation for what makes life fulfilling.
