My self-summary
Born and raised NYer who's still in love with the city. I'm a big fan of foreign and independent films, politics (lefty). I'm always reading a good book--of the bound variety. (New-fangled Kindle thingamajigs just ain't the same.)

Love the thrill of the hunt with thrift shopping and appreciate art and design. I paint and draw but I've mainly been painting faces these days.

Like learning about different cultures and foreign languages. I would love to go to just about every place on the map but Brazil, South Africa and Ireland are on the top of my list. Also love a good road trip. I'm inclined to pick up and go on short notice and would love a travel buddy. :)

I'm at the point in my life where I'd like to find a partner with whom to kick life's proverbial ass. ;)

I'm really 38!
What I’m doing with my life
Hustlin'.

Boxing.

Fancy book learnin'.
I’m really good at
Picking up languages, packing, making little kids stop crying, adding to my book collection via Amazon and making a mean meatloaf and mashed taters.
The first things people usually notice about me
My crazy, curly hair? My laugh? My specs? My racial ambiguity?

Let me know when we meet.
