I've been told I'm a great listener and a calming presence. I value sincerity but have an absurd sense of humor and a pretty ridiculous uninhibited laugh.
I love the energy of the city, but appreciate stillness and silence and the outdoors even more (I'm from Maine, it never leaves you). The beautiful things in life are what interest me most.
I'm pretty liberal and try to be engaged with issues of social & economic justice when i can, though I'm not always as active as I would like to be.
