Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll be away most of August with very limited access to email (so
please don't be offended if I don't reply).
I'm a little bit sweet and a little bit sassy … Those close to me
usually describe me as: thoughtful, curious, passionate, playful,
compassionate, kind, loyal, introspective, energetic, spiritual,
funny, grounded, and FUN, FUN, FUN.
My interests include reading, writing, photography, dancing, and
fitness (working out, yoga, nice long walks just about
I also love to travel. Both of my parents are from Europe, so I am
first-generation American, and I have definitely inherited the
travel/movement bug. I'm already thinking about mid-winter breaks
to lands warm and sweet.
I am looking for a man who is genuine and honest, grown up,
emotionally secure, fun, and educated. Integrity is also very
important to me, as is a passion for life, love, and learning. An
interest in travel and creating new and great experiences is also
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying New York City. Moved to the East Village in January, so I
am finally getting to explore my new neighborhood. Want to join me?
I think I also made a New Year's resolution to explore all the
"best of" each borough by the end of the year. I'm a native New
Yorker, so I'll only do the ones I haven't seen yet. I'm taking
suggestions and am open to co-explorers.
During the school year, I work as an Assistant Principal at a high
school in Brooklyn, which is intense, and although I love it, I am
perpetually working on a better life-work balance (aren't we all?).
In my off time, I like to have dinner or drinks with friends,
dance, read, go to yoga, spend time with family, visit museums, go
to shows, cook healthy meals, curl up on the couch with you, and
otherwise nurture my soul.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bringing out the best in others. Being honest. Having fun and
experiencing joy. Laughing. Traveling. Playing with kiddies. Loving
puppies. Seeing the big picture but also managing details and
making things happen. Organizing stuff and getting things done. Oh,
and I'm a damn good parallel parker (comes with the territory of
being a native New Yorker).

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love many of the classics, but I do like a range, and love to
peruse the shelves and tables at bookstores. I'm open to
recommendations, but so far on my list are: the new books of
Jeannette Walls,' Edwidge Danticat, and Jhumpa Lahiri; Orphan
Train; maybe Outlander because I've heard so many good things about
it; and a book about yoga and emotional balance. I'd also like to
read Middlesex, as I never read it when it came out a while
Films: also like a range, but haven't gotten to the movies as much
as I'd like this year. Perhaps you can help me remedy that?
Music: I generally like anything that has a great beat and/or tells
a great story. Indigo Girls, Joni Mitchell, and Pink are among my
soul favorites. Since I love to dance, anything that gets me moving
is alright by me!
Shows: Also a range. Do love the theatre, and I am slightly partial
to musicals. Wicked, Stomp, and Lord of the Rings (the musical)
have been amongst my favorites.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm out, I might be having dinner or drinks with friends,
dancing, at a yoga class maybe. If I'm in, I might be reading,
writing, or cooking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Okay, I'll say the unsayable ... I secretly really like Taylor
Swift's music. It's so damn catchy and so fun to dance to! Don't
tell anyone ...
