My self-summary
A lifelong NYer who is neither cynical nor negative. I am open, honest and real. I love discovering the hidden treasures of NY and urban adventures. I also like hiking , gazing at the stars and spending time by the water.

As a teacher, I direct my passion toward giving special needs children a voice. I find the humor in the most difficult situations. I like to wind down with friends over an interesting dinner challenging existing beliefs or just being goofy or silly. I must admit that I cannot deny the power of sushi.

I am looking for a man who is generous, kind, down to earth, unselfish, liberal, and humorous He would enjoy listening to various kinds of music, going to movies, museums, theatre and taking City walks and hiking. He would be spontaneous, adventurous and have an open mind.
