I love to stay active and enjoy the simple things in
life...friends, family, 8 hours of sleep, a good meal. My friends
would say I am easy going, kind of goofy, enjoy a good laugh,
dependable and a pretty good listener/advice giver. I also have a
softer affectionate side and know a good hug can change a persons

friends and the strongest person I've ever met). I have been in
Philly two years and love what the area has to offer. I moved here
for a career opportunity and happy I took the risk.
Food and wine are are the top two on my top ten list...more
specifically Mexican and Pinot Noir. I enjoy trying different
restaurants and I am daring when it comes to trying new things
(i.e. calf kidney). Plus, I'm not to shaby in the kitchen. Maybe
I'll cook for you some time. As much as I love food and wine, I do
believe it is important to take care of yourself.
You can find me on a walk or run with my dog, at the gym or out and
about exploring Philly. Walking the Ben Franklin bridge is one of
my favorite things - definitely one of the best views of the city.
Other "keep busy" activities include weekend getaways, movies, the
search for craft beers, and sporting event (Go Giants - don't

interested in knowing the other eight I'll assume you'll message me

Happy Hour/dinner with friends, first meet-up with an okcupider, or

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I still put my shoes on the wrong feet...obviously I
correct this before going out in public.
