My self-summary
Wow! What a blizzard that was. It was beautiful to look at & walk my dog in but I do prefer summer time. I am excited that a new year has started & I'm feeling optimistic about the future. I am a friendly, honest, passionate person & am apparently way more hilarious than I realize. I have great friends & enjoy my career but would love to explore the world with that someone special.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE UNDER 35 YEARS OF AGE, IF YOU ARE ONLY LOOKING FOR A HOOK-UP AND IF YOU ARE UNDER 5'10". I AM NOT INTERESTED.

Originally from Australia, grew up as an expat in Asia & have been working in NYC as a Producer for many years. I am well traveled, inquisitive and have an adventurous streak, though it’s been a long time since I jumped out of an airplane. I like hanging out with smart, fun people. Drinking & eating usually. Also playing tennis, biking, kayaking, scrabble, crossword puzzles, music, walking around NYC & tripping upstate on the weekends.

I’m attracted to men who are strong-minded but caring and considerate. Career-minded yet make an effort to have fun and be spontaneous. I want a man who appreciates my mind, desires me, a man who wants to be in a relationship but respects my independence. Not too difficult, right?

I’ve been told I’m funny, interesting, opinionated, a good listener, have sexy legs & smooth skin. I'm a contradiction of sorts. I eat healthy but like a few drinks. Am feminine but enjoy hiking & camping. Am affectionate & open-minded but loyal. Am theatrical but not a drama queen. People tell me a need a dynamic person, like myself.

I appreciate a man who is social, sexy, clever, has good manners and above all, a good heart. A balance of both the mental and physical. Someone who has a similar NYC lifestyle & outlook for the future as me & is hopefully a similar age.

Let's meet up!
What I’m doing with my life
Looking at apartments, hanging with my dog, trying to focus
I’m really good at
Thinking on my feet, keeping good friends, being organized...
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look better with a tan? That I like to giggle? I'm not sure really...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I studied film & TV so have seen a lot of movies. My list of 100 favorite films got to 138! So I stopped counting. I like indies, documentaries & blockbusters depending on my mood. Love Sci-Fi. Enjoyed Ex Macina recently. Always try to catch up on my Australian films when I can.

Was a voracious reader when I was a kid & have been making an effort to read more lately. Just finished The Orphan Master's Son and it was incredible! Now reading Just Kids by Patti Smith. I gravitate towards Pulitzer & Booker Prize winners as the writing is usually top-notch. Love trashy, pop-culture magazines too...

Music: Electronic, Drum & Bass, Rock, Blues, Disco

Shows: Watching The X'files right now. Changes depending on the season. Game of Thrones, Masterpiece Mystery, CSI, Criminal Minds, Battlestar Gallactica, Homeland, Mad Men, Broad City, The Office, Antiques Roadshow, Survivor, Top Chef

Food: Savory foods. Chinese. Greek. Mexican. Japanese. French. Cheese, olives & charcuterie.... I'm a pretty healthy eater though I do love pizza. Are Bloody Mary's a food?
The six things I could never do without
Passion
Friends
Travel
Wine & Cheese
Pillow & Earplugs
ooops, that's 7
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I get contacted by really young men and really old men but rarely people my own age…. Would really like to date someone who is close to my age and has a similar lifestyle to me. The metrics don't seem to work on this site.
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends. Having dinner or drinks or watching a movie at home. I don't party as much as I used to, though I did party last weekend…
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get vertigo even though I've parachuted out of an airplane
You should message me if
You are looking for your soulmate & not just a hookup
