All around easy-going woman, full of contradictions but somehow
everything seems to fall into place. Love some world music but can
also rock out, love to travel to exotic, far-away, international
spots but can also stay home on a Friday night and be as happy as a
clam. Am a city-girl but can appreciate a sweaty hike in the woods.
Can be super-productive but also have the gift of knowing how to be
mellow and relax, like i said, lots of opposites but it seems to
work out just fine.
Really just a normal woman looking for a sweet guy - not looking to
convince you that I'm the one (although that would be a beautiful

What I’m doing with my life
I'm a social worker and really love giving of myself for the
greater good. Working towards improving the lives of others,
especially folks that have little access to all the things that we
so often take for granted.
Oh yeah, also trying to take life on day-by-day, trying to live in
the moment and just be. And while I'm doing this I'm also trying to
dance, laugh and keep my heart open as much as possible.
I’m really good at
Helping people bounce back from a sad moment, looking at the
positive and optimistic side of things, organizing your clutter,
dancing a mean Samba, laying out on the beach for hours, planning
the next trip, appreciating the art form of drinking tea, living
abroad (lived in Brazil, Spain, London, Cairo, Puerto Rico), making
out and getting my cuddle on.

On a typical Friday night I am
Catching a photo/art exhibit, getting my dance on or lounging on
the sofa recuperating from a tough week at work. This last one is
not very sexy, I know, but super cozy. Wanna join?

with your feelings and are generally open to life and love.
