Ideas and creative expressions of all sorts inspire me, as do conversations on topics of the mind and heart. I have an intense philosophical side alongside a playful lighthearted side. I’m drawn to the unconventional... to people who are warm and genuine and maybe rough around the edges at times.
As one of six kids, raised by two eccentric New Yorkers in Kansas City, I know what it means to feel like a foreign particle.
For years I’ve been teaching public high school and it brings a special meaning to my life. I’ve always been in fields which have allowed me to feel I was working towards some greater purpose. Being in the trenches makes me feel alive.
I’m hoping to find someone who has a huge heart and mind, someone who is poetic, daring, intense, deeply curious, morally upright and free-thinking. I value people who know how to be natural. It's refreshing to come across people who behave without affectation. Humility is also a trait I find very appealing and in short supply.
I am looking for a man who can critique the world, see its absurdities, laugh at them, cry at them and work to avoid being transformed or swallowed up by them.
I’m not afraid to be idealistic or romantic, and dream big, even though I’m practical and know in what I should be grounded. I want dramatic romance in my life. I’m not sure what exactly that will look like but I'm open to discovering it in unexpected ways.
I am very active...it's an important release for me. I ride my bike to work, run in Prospect Park, practice yoga....
I love to go hiking and camping but I haven’t done those things regularly for a long time. I used to live in the desert in Israel and I’d go on long hikes into the wilderness almost every day. I remember thinking to myself, how will I ever live without access to this natural beauty? I’m still wondering the same thing.
