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.
My interests include reading, writing, photography, dancing, and fitness (working out, yoga, nice long walks just about anywhere).
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. Spent over three weeks in Italy this summer, which was dreamy... Working on spring birthday plans already. It looks like it'll be some combination of London, Paris, and Venice. Life is so hard, right?
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 pretty fundamental.
What I’m doing with my life
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 most love to enjoy NYC. Also love to have dinner/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
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).
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair … or the shade of my eyes. Not sure. You tell me...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love many of the classics, but I do like a range, and love to peruse the shelves and tables at bookstores. Recently read Beautiful Ruins, which takes place in LA & Cinque Terre, Italy. Wonderful read.
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
proximity to nature or the outdoors (especially water)
youthful optimism and spirit
the people I love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my next adventure or travel destination. Cool NYC stuff I'd like to
do. Where on earth my life partner is ...
On a typical Friday night I am
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
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 ...
