My self-summary
NYC, you must have a special plan for me. Moved back to NYC from San Francisco 2 summers ago with extended stays in Miami and Geneva over past 8yrs.

Hybrid 🇮🇱🇦🇷🇺🇸

Feel grounded and whole when immersed in the natural world.

If you have a good soul, big heart and a bit of wit, feel free to say hi!

P.S. I'm 43/ENFP/ 5'11" in case that's an issue.
What I’m doing with my life
I read a quote once that said "Life Begins At The End of Your Comfort Zone." Without sounding contrived or cheesy, I genuinely believe in this philosophy and have found that there is true magic in this silver lining.

Last summer I maximized time off from work by rafting/hiking in CO, catching last night of Fair Thee Well shows in Chicago, helping a best friend deliver a catamaran from Tortola -> Grenada over 16 days, getting my ASA 101 certification and taking a terrific week long cooking class through ICE downtown.

Very much enjoy volunteering when possible. Themes I try to get involved in are preserving our parks and green spaces, underpriviledged youth and education, elderly, dogs. If you aren't a part of NY Cares, definitely get involved. They offer a huge amount of opportunities to help in a wide variety of ways.

Dogs in pics are not my dogs. Was doing a bunch of dog sitting for friends over holidays. Really love dogs. Would love my own when time is right.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, being imperfect, getting lost, being a bit goofy/quirky, putting people at ease, playing with kids, listening, making people feel comfortable and appreciated, animated story telling, besitos, hugs, foreign tongues, finding great adventures...
The first things people usually notice about me
Sense of humor, smile, quirky, genuine, real, engaging, deep sense of curiosity, empathic, transparent, zest for life, adventurous spirit, love to love. Curb/Seinfeld humor works for me. Hope you can appreciate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent Books: You can usually find 5-10 books by my bedside.

Some favorites:

Siddhartha, Alchemist, The Art of Racing In The Rain, Flow, Exodus, Grapes of Wrath, Tale of Two Cities, The One Thing

Music: Love music! "When it hits, you feel no pain.". Huge live music lover and pretty good at seeking/finding gems coming through the city. Not ready to be on dancing with the stars but feel very comfortable on dance floor.

Have a wide, diverse and international range in music I absolutely love.
The six things I could never do without

Travel
Laughter
Sun
Human touch & affection
Nature
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a part of making the world a better place, savor the present, what legacy do I want to leave, when will I start reading the 500 books on my bookshelf and on my kindle and not get tempted to buy yet another book 😖, being a good friend, my next adventure, how things work and why.
On a typical Friday night I am
Me
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get a bizarre craving for Swedish Fish before boarding flights...

Once upon a time I taught archery in a vacation village in the south of Italy.

Passion is a hell of a turn on. Seeing a woman doing what she's passionate about, is about as sexy as it gets. This can be anything you put your mind towards or how you show up in the world.
You should message me if
You have a great relationship with your family. You are thoughtful, adventurous, kind, creative, passionate, introspective, and expressive. You have a genuine interest and openness to get to know each other and see how things unfold...
