My self-summary
I grew up in a small town in Vermont, which will always be my hometown and hold a piece of my heart. I work as the relationships manager (more honest name for development director) for a small nonprofit saving our ocean and river ecosystems in Cambridge. The environment has always been important to me, on many levels.

Besides the environment, watercolor painting, reading, and singing bass with Chorus Pro Musica are a huge part of my life and identity. Both of my grandmothers were artists, and with their passing, it became very important to me to use my gifts to honor them. I try to have a diversity of subjects in my paintings... oceans, boats, landscapes, people in landscapes, rivers, scenes from the city, mountains, and my imagination.

I love living in Cambridge, where I can walk to most of my favorite places. I like developing relationships with these places. You may find me at Algiers Cafe, Trident Booksellers Cafe (I love the 2nd floor view), Club Passim, the ICA, the Kendal Theater, Belly Wine Bar, and walking along the Charles after a concert.

I am looking for a woman who is beautiful from the inside and outside, spiritual, loving, curious about many things, funny, and who has similar values to mine. Being in my 30s, I'm also looking forward to having a family someday. Hopefully you see this in your future as well. Mostly, I hope that we can laugh easily together and share all of life's little and big moments.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing a lot of watercolor painting, taking a watercolor class at the MFA, and gaining visibility for my art. I recently left a full-time job saving the oceans. I intend to use my masters in social work helping create a more just and harmonious world again soon with a new job. I'm grateful for this time of discovery and growth in my art and believe that it's becoming a bigger part of my life faster than I had anticipated now.

I am a very positive person and loving person. I try to put that out there in meaningful and encouraging messages on facebook and in person. I hope my words and art inspire many someday.

You are interested by what you've read, have a big heart, feel romantic and inspired by fall weather, and would be open to some tea or wine with me. I have a weakness for women who sing beautifully, have a sense of style, and go for what they want in life.
