My favorite thing is to try new restaurants, but I also love to cook and find it therapeutic somehow (even grocery shopping... is that weird??). It would be fun to cook with someone else, even if you have little cooking talent :) Besides being a foodie at heart, I also like going to comedy shows, the movies and the beach. I recently discovered that I'm in love with paddle boarding - really, anything on the water makes me happy! Traveling is a must in life, though I've done most of my traveling through orchestra tours. I'd love to do more of it without worrying about work.
I'm the conductor of an orchestra and am the director of piano studies at a school nearby. I also have a private piano studio. Even though I'm a professional musician/teacher, it doesn't mean I'm looking for another artistic personality; I like meeting people who bring different skills to the table. I bought a two-family home last year, so I've been learning a lot about the wonderful world of homeownership… I can now change a lightbulb! (Just kidding, I was never actually that hopeless.)
It would be nice to find someone who has similar values, but differences can bring a lot of balance, too. I'm pretty open-minded; with a good glass of wine and a great conversation, it doesn't take much for me to have fun!
I think I'm good at making other people feel special (and it's easy because the people I keep close in my life really are!).
I love to read all kinds of books, so it's hard for me to choose a favorite. The same thing goes for movies...
