Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not your average "native New Yorker," I'm outspoken, friendly
and as diverse as the city, with friends from all over the world. I
enjoy everything from Szechuan in Flushing, the NY Philharmonic,
durian (if you have to ask, you've never tried it), and I can't say
I favor the Mets over the Yankees.
I've lived and worked overseas--S. America, Africa and
Thailand--and traveling is still my passion. I don't like to travel
as a tourist, and I tend to buy the guidebooks and toss them aside
when I get to my destination. I love art, and at home in Manhattan,
I've filled my apartment with paintings and other reminders of my
I have a "grateful" rescue dog and one of the greatest gifts Cody
has given me is getting to explore the parks and streets of NY with
him. He attracts all of the attention--I am a bit jealous--but I do
get to keep all the new friends we make.
I'm looking for someone who will join me on one of these
excursions, who will add stamps to my passport, and will enjoy the
adventures we can have together.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Figuring out the next phase of my life. I'm a freelance
communications professional, primarily nonprofits and small
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...am really good at making you laugh, making you feel comfortable
and great conversation. I love lake swimming, mountains, eating and
just about anything with the right company--or on my own.

I loved The Elegance of the Hedgehog, so original. I'm reading
Michael Ondaaje's, the Cat's Table-also really great. I recently
read a nonfiction about the Cherokee Indians, but can't remember
the name right now.
Love mostly independent films, that said, I really liked Lost In
Translation a few years ago now. Other People's Lives, a wonderful
(Polish?) film, and many others.
Just saw Other Desert Cities and really liked the script. Did not
love War Horse--great puppet--but aside from that, what was all the
fuss about? One of the best things I've ever seen, that combines
opera and theatre is Phillip Glass' opera, performed in Sanskrit.
It's other worldly.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The NY Times, books, my iphone, my dog, family and the possibility
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How frustrated I am with the ultra-conservatives that have taken
over the Republican party; the fact that we don't have universal
health care in the U.S. And then there is my superficial side...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't know that Friday is much different than any other night of
the week. Depends.
