My self-summary
I like challenges, personal growth and new experiences.

I like to travel and have a few destinations I look forward to discovering (Hawaii - I've never been!, Australia, southern Europe, Vietnam, Brazil, South Africa...). I've been to places such as Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, France, Ireland, Mexico. I also enjoy staying in with a movie night, dinner, and wine. I care about atmosphere and will light candles at home because it's relaxing after a day of work (just a couple, not a candle-freak show or anything). Because I prefer a low-key environment to crowded, loud, madness, I'm a dive bar, quiet restaurant kind of girl. It really helps conversation to not have to scream at the person next to you.

I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl who sometimes likes to wear dresses. I exercise via Pilates and walking/running/biking. I love to get in a pool and I do a mean doggie paddle which will knock your socks off with laughter or annoyance. Okay, maybe you can show me how to swim properly?

I love black and white portrait photography, especially the likes of August Sander, Edward Steichen and the recently discovered Vivian Maier (amazing story). I also like good music and live shows. I prefer punk, post-punk, alternative... most anything along those lines if it's well done. I also love old jazz and like most other kinds of music with the exception of club music.

I believe a solid relationship is based on good communication, honesty, trust, kindness, similar goals and interests, laughs, and spiritual and physical chemistry.

I like smart, kind guys who think independently. I'm looking for a man who is looking to make a new friend or to be involved in something more.
What I’m doing with my life
I made a lot of changes in 2012: Sold my home in PLG and moved back to Bklyn Heights, changed my career, changed my job, took up Pilates... all for the MUCH better. I'm now a Project Manager at a small company in SoHo. I travel a good bit to Baltimore (sometimes DC).
I’m really good at
I'm good at renovating a home, being there for my friends, and being dependable at work. I'm good at making pita pizzas. I'm also a very good organizer.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. After getting to know me, people generally say I'm not what they thought at our first meeting (I tend to be shy at first).

Food: I love mexican food! I also like Mexican, Italian, my sis-n-law's homemade thai food... I'll eat most things save for tentacles and eyeballs and the like.
The six things I could never do without
Friends. wine. trees. love. comfy shoes. hot tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about big picture stuff. I think about my friends, things going on in the world... what I'm doing and where I'm going with my life... what will I have for dinner...
On a typical Friday night I am
You can usually find me at a happy hour or dinner. Sometimes I'll be at the gym or curled up watching a dvd.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if like to have a beer and shoot some pool.
