This blank page is more daunting than it should be. I grew up mostly in San Francisco but spent my high school years in Seattle. I moved out to New York in August. I moved for work and to be closer to family who moved here a few years before I decided to. I teach at a high school in Harlem. I'm passionate about my profession, its promise and my role in it. I'd be lying if I said education wasn't something that's usually bouncing around in my thoughts.
In my spare time I do a lot of walking. I'm starting to feel settled and part of the reason involves wandering around the city. I love being active and staying fit. It helps clear my head. I usually go the gym, run or bike (I'm considering making the switch to clip less pedals but I keep imagining myself falling over during a red light, and the irreparable harm that would be done to my bike/body/ego). My two favorite sports are basketball and soccer. I play both sports regularly, (and I'm in desperate need of help for my jump-shot, if you'd like to teach me I'll owe you at least a coffee).
I'm drawn to cheerful, optimistic and kind personalities. I'm attracted to women who are fashionable but are also comfortable spending all day in gym clothes, all though the gym can look like a Nike/Lululemon fashion show. I'm looking for a friend, someone to (re)discover the city with and then we'll see how it goes.
One last note: Please excuse my pictures. While they are out of focus and/or small, they are recent. They were all taken in may during my sister's Italy wedding.
