Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am independent, smart, funny, athletic and pretty easy-going. I
love being outdoors and do a fair amount of biking, kayaking and
gardening. Skiing too. I read a lot especially science books
because I love science and also pretty much anything that's

I love music. Anything from Dave Matthews to Puccini. And I love my
kids. I am most contented when I am cooking and listening to good
music. I also enjoy feeding my family and friends whatever I've
I was born and raised in New York, just north of the city. I go
home once a year and spend my time in Manhattan. I love New York. I
also like London, Paris and la Roma.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I use my personal time to exercise, read and garden. At work I am

went to the Arctic on a research vessel. Next month I'm skiing in
Colorado. I have been studying Italiano for three years and hope to

of Madama Butterfly because I'm going to go see it soon. Food? I
love chocolate, ice cream, roasted vegetables, gorgonzola cheese,
olives, red wine
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my kids
3) trying new things
4) being outside and moving around
6) coffee, vino
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not very exciting. Teaching makes me tired. I go out with my
colleagues and have a beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Then it wouldn't be private any more.
