I've wandered a lot in life, but I seem to be settling in New York. I've been here for six years now and have no plans to leave.
I love adventure. Stimulation is important--physically, emotionally, and intellectually. I run quite a bit and do races about every other month (from 5k to marathon). Travel is vital to me, especially during the winter to escape to warm weather. I love getting off the beaten path (like Nicaragua and Burkina Faso) and exploring.
I am erudite, resourceful, and romantic -- but not hopeless.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend a lot of time running, reading, and watching theater. I
love the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Central Park.
Since I know most people expect this section to be about work, I do
analytics for a healthcare nonprofit.
I’m really good at
travel (planning and doing), introspection, logic puzzles, massages
(giving and receiving), getting cheap theater tickets, remaining
calm, awesomely bad puns
