My self-summary
I am interested in spending time with someone who enjoys going to a museum or the theater as well as for a bike ride or a hike.

While I can be very laid-back, I also can be passionate about things and focused. I try to be open to different points of view and learn from them. I like to balance that with humor, laughter, and not taking myself too seriously --and can really appreciate a little goofiness. I also believe it is very important to add value, to contribute and to be compassionate.

I have always been a reader and have a wide range of interests, which with my science background, has lead me down some interesting roads, provided me with a stimulating work life, and has led to travel to some fascinating places. I like art, dance, architecture, theater, movies and a range of music – a great experience was seeing a modern opera at the opera house in Venice. I am very active and fit - a serious gym goer.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to contribute – working, volunteering- socializing, working out, trying to learn Italian and French, reading, planning my next trip to San Francisco, Paris or Rome – for the nth time, but still love it each time --, taking trips to other interesting places, fitting in a fun bike ride or hiking trip.

You should message me if
You have a range of interests and are open to new things. If you are active - biking, hiking - (although sitting outside at a cafe and watching the people walk by is also fun). If you like to go out -movies, theater, music (a variety), interesting restaurants, day trips. Also, if you have a sense of humor, are playful, and like to have fun.
The two of us
