I am a curious cat but sadly allergic to them (although my favorite animal is the snow leopard!). I am constantly exploring new places and continually looking to see what new things I can better understand about myself, my relationships, and the world around me.
I grew up in Taos, NM (do you ski?), traveled out east for college (Amherst), then moved to Boston, DC, Barcelona, DC again, and now live in amazing Ft. Greene, BK. I love the city and exploring all the amazing things it has to offer and make it a point to visit new neighborhoods, restaurants or bars each week. I love cooking, although I don’t get to do it as much as I would like, and mostly try out new recipes by experimenting with ingredients instead of following a cookbook - let creativity, intuition, and fun lead the way. I am a traveler - which may be the most common thing people say on here - and while living in Barcelona traveled extensively in Italy, Germany, and Ireland. I have also been to a few weddings in Turkey and India so I love taking trips far and wide but also like quick getaways in upstate New York to energize myself outside the city.
I naturally seek out deep connections with people - with friends, co-workers, romantic partners - so I spend a lot of time nurturing and growing them. However, connecting with people I don't know, especially those who have in depth knowledge on something I know little or nothing about, is one of my favorite pastimes (and is partially what I do for a living).
