I'm a born and bred New Yorker.
I've also lived in Savannah, France and Italy.
I, also, enjoy "traveling", "spending time with my friends and family" and "enjoying all that NYC has to offer."
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 countryside. I don't feel at ease in suburbia.
I find the term "hipster" and its convoluted meaning to be amusing and often ridiculous.
I live to eat, don't eat to live. If I had to choose, I'd 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 Stones.
I'm an eternal balance seeker. I think it's key.
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 and continues to water down human interaction and communication. 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.
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 and find it purely elegant. I have little tolerance for ignorant and/or judgmental people.
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.
