Stats: Born and bred in the wilds of Long Island, a New Yorker since 1985. Lived in Japan and snorkeled in Australia. Never married or had kids, though open to all possibilities.
Like a piquant dish, I'm a mix of flavors: sweet and tart, pungent and mild. Beneath my polite exterior lies a surprisingly punchy sense of humor. Also a soft heart. I try to treat people and animals with fairness and kindness. A dedicated leftist, I'm comfortable with counter-culture and attracted to edgy. I will readily surrender myself to a night of bhangra dancing. I also seek the romance of old New York--highballs at the Algonquin or a rendezvous at Grand Central Station. Country living is an easy transition--love to hike, camp and swim. I attend, and even occasionally understand, esoteric lectures (the latest one was a heady combination of neuroscience and psychoanalysis). I generally/genuinely like the company of kids.
I believe in the work I do teaching communication skills to budding doctors and nurses. I also appreciate my flexible schedule--the gym is great in the afternoon when everyone else is working!
I’m into healthy, vegetarian food (snaps to my neigborhood greenmarket) and regular workouts. Among my bad habits: I like to stay up late, may leave dishes in the sink, have watched "Wife Swap" more than once.
