I really enjoy food - growing it, cooking it, and experimenting with new recipes. I bring as much passion to the kitchen as I do to my work creating positive change in the world. People tell me I'm good at both.
As serious as I am about creating a more connected world, I can also be very silly. I love to make up songs and stories on the spot to entertain my nieces, nephews and the children of friends. I love children. It might sound hokey but I see them as teachers - giving us adults access to a way of experiencing life that is less guarded and measured.
I also love to travel to new places whether it's just around the block or across the world. I've lived in Scotland, Jerusalem, Austin, and Boston. I just recently returned to Philadelphia and I'm enjoying rediscovering this city and this part of the country. Whenever I can, I get outdoors - hiking, kayaking, swimming, gardening, or just a walk around the nearest pond or park. I enjoy the community feel of living in a city neighborhood, yet getting out into rural and wild spaces is necessary for my general sanity. Any place with less people than wildlife will do, there is something about looking up to see something untame wander by that pulls me up short and brings out wonder and unmitigated joy.
I am looking to meet someone who can be a close friend, partner and lover. I'm seeking a life partner with whom to explore the world and build a relationship grounded in love and respect and lots of laughter.
