I just moved to San Francisco on June 1st, 2014 after spending 3 years in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Before that, I was born and raised in upstate New York where I lived for most of my life.
I'm an intelligent, articulate, critical/skeptical free thinker with a sense of humor that is mostly sarcastic but also includes the occasional oh-so-witty pun.
I thrive on meeting, talking and listening to, and getting to know new people. I am comfortable and confident in social situations, which is a huge improvement over my shy awkwardness and total lack of confidence of 5-10 years ago.
I love staying physically active, especially outdoors where I enjoy many activities. Some of these include cycling, rollerblading (I know, I must be stuck in the 90s), hiking, climbing hills, playing tennis, and participating in other sports.
I enjoy learning and talking about many different topics - especially those related to science. I am also passionate about traveling, exploring and discovering new places and things.
