I'm a happy person who is determined to make the best out of any
situation. I'm a girly girl who loves to sing trashy 80's music
(out of tune) at karaoke nights. At the same time though, I love to
spend a Sunday afternoon watching football. I'm into sports -
Patriots (since before Tom Brady, thank you very much), Mets (even
though they break my heart), and Islanders (I may be their only
fan). I graduated from Northwestern, and I bleed purple for my
Cardiac 'Cats Football. I love to cook, and it's even better that
learning how to cook and bake is a part of my job description. I
love traveling and exploring new cities. I'm not content until I've
learned something new each day, and I never go a day without
laughing. More often than not I'm laughing at myself. I was born
and raised in New York, but I'm very midwestern in personality.
Except for when I'm in midtown - I have no problem flinging slowly
moving tourists out of my way.
What I’m doing with my life
Baking lots and lots of cookies. No, really. I work in product
development for a company that makes kitchen gadgets. Most days I
love what I do. There are also days when I eat 7 raw cookies and
feel sick afterwards, and those days I don't love so much.
I try to stay really active by going to the gym and playing in
various sports leagues. It's only partly to counterbalance all
those cookies - I do genuinely enjoy an active lifestyle.
I’m really good at
Napping. I can fall asleep anywhere, at any time. It's a gift. I'm
also very good at cuddling, and I can rock a pair of footy pajamas.
The first things people usually notice about me
Generally my wild mane of lioness hair. It has a mind of its own
and can't really be tamed. For people who meet me on here, that I'm
prettier than my pictures.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: On the Road, The Poisonwood Bible, The Book Thief, The Girl
With the Dragon Tattoo, Devil in the White City, The Help, The
Movies: I can warn you now, I haven't seen any of the movies that
are considered classics. My favorites though are The Rock, Bad
Santa, Cry Baby, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,
Austin Powers, The Princess Bride, 17 Dresses
TV Shows: I have a problem with crime shows. It's bad. But also
some good stuff like Top Chef, How I Met Your Mother, and
Music: I love a lot of different types of music. Oldies, 80's and
90's classics, Spanish rock, punk, country, and anything that
prompts a spontaneous dance party.
Food: Sushi. You can win your way into my heart with fish.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people in this city seem to wait on lines just for the sake of
waiting on line. People see a line, and run to get on it. Do they
even know what the line is for? Or do people just genuinely enjoy
waiting on lines?
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing the same thing I do every night, Pinky. Trying to take over
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm afraid of matches. I just lit Channukah candles with an assist
from my gas burners.
You should message me if
You are a nice Jewish boy who is fun, funny, and silly, but still
smart. You are warm and compassionate, and value having a close
family. You love adventure, want to see the world, and make the
most out of any situation. You are the kind of person who likes to
stop and appreciate how lucky you are and how beautiful life is.
Bonus points if you play golf - my dad and brothers have submitted
a request that I bring someone home who can be their 4th on the
