I've been living in Boston for about a year and a half, from Virginia via Helsinki. With family and friends and work sprinkled over the globe, geography is relative so dating locally has a few inherent challenges...online seems a viable option if somehow chemistry could translate through the screen, because, really, we'll probably know within 5-10 seconds if there's a spark. Me -- I love to travel, to explore a foreign city or a new corner restaurant a block away. I've lost count on the number of places but Italy and Virginia are still my favorites, as both feel like home. I'm a believer in a healthy mind, body and spirit...run, bike, hike, get outside whenever possible and practice yoga. Marathons, triathlons, party poses have all colored my past, but now it's all about balance.
What I’m doing with my life
My background is in sciences/biomed and now am in marketing for a healthcare company. It's been a series of very natural transitions that always felt right at the time. I get to work with brilliant people and together chart a course to solve meaningful (to me) problems and I love it....the drawback is that sometimes the travel can be a bit much....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books and movies - lots
Music - I like most mainstream, jazz and poetic lyrics (Iron and Wine), but have been known to jam out with my five year old niece and nephew to Happy and the Lego movie song. A few that come to mind are Billy Holiday, Miles Davis and Ella Fitzgerald, Amos Lee, Neko Case, Gillian Welsh, Emmylou, Hem, Arcade Fire, Avett Brothers, Phoenix, jimmy eat world, Pink, Postal Service, Dashboard Confessional, Old 97s, Wilco, Norah jones...
And live music, especially outside on a summers night.
The six things I could never do without
Salty sea air
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What might be at the center of it all...and what adventure is around the bend

you have bright eyes, a curious mind and an open heart
you feel that life's about the journey -- even if you're in your own backyard.
