My self-summary
I'm a full time personal trainer, living it up in the Southland. In 2010, I drove out here from New Jersey in search of a warmer climate and some adventure. Today, I'm enjoying the fruits of that decision: sunshine, mountains, beaches, and everything else LA has to offer. I'm hoping to find that spark with someone who shares my values.

In my leisure time, I enjoy hiking areas like Griffith Park and the San Gabriel and Santa Monica Mountains. It still boggles my mind that I can be outdoors 12 months out of the year here without having to don a parka. I also LOVE cooking and have recently been experimenting with pressure cooking, a culinary technique with which I had zero familiarity prior to moving out here.
What I’m doing with my life
I studied English literature with a minor in Economics at Rutgers University. After graduating, I taught high school English for a few years, but decided it wasn't for me. After reflecting on what I really enjoy doing, I pursued a certification in personal training. Today, I'm a full time personal trainer, and I love what I do.
I’m really good at
Whistling, grammar and writing, personal training, board games, cooking, racquetball, swimming, karaoke

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Exercises to do with my clients, nutrition, politics, literature, where to travel next, new running and hiking spots in the LA area, new recipes to try or how to improve my current standbys, the next adventure...
On a typical Friday night I am
trying out a new recipe or perfecting an old one for friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes cry during movies.
You should message me if
you're open-minded, optimistic, and a good communicator.
The two of us
