My self-summary
I am simple - I like the outdoors, music, cooking, travel, exercise, my job, family, holidays and people. I do not like poor grammar, materialism, laziness and excuses. I want to spend time with someone who can continue the conversation after the dessert course and enjoys a Texas accent.
What I’m doing with my life
Convincing myself that running is fun and perfecting my croissant dough. Otherwise, I am packing for my next business trip from NYC to California where I spend a couple of weeks per month. If you are tired of me, wait a few days and I will be on the other coast. If you can't get enough of me, join me before or after business, northern or southern Cali, NYC, your choice.
I’m really good at
-being present with friends and putting aside the world to focus on the moment and listening.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing that dates tell me is that I look better in person than my pictures (prettier and thinner). Seriously. I am not sure how I feel about that. Seriously.

The first thing that non-dates usually notice about me is my large eyes, the collar bone that I ruined when flipping over the handle bars of a motorcycle in Bermuda and my sense of humor.
The six things I could never do without
The six things I could never do without are love, sunshine, understanding, diversity, mountains and valleys. A more tangible list would be my children, reading glasses, sharp knives, decaf tea, beach chair and friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- how to use all my frequent flyer miles and Open Table coupons
- how someone in Istanbul, Philadelphia or Maine can be a 95% match
- how to develop an OKC algorithm to keep the 20-something stalkers that start their email with "Hello Lovely" out of my inbox

Please give me something else to think about!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
After brushing my teeth more than 30,000 times, I still get toothpaste on my clothes about once a week.
You should message me if
-you are fun, smart, open-minded, live in the city, have the time for a glass of wine and enjoy ricotta pancakes
