My self-summary
Native New Yorker. I throw myself entirely into whatever I'm pursuing. I also am incredibly curious and love learning new things and exploring new places. Next major trip on the docket is New Zealand this winter.

I follow international (in particular European and Middle Eastern) and domestic politics quite closely.

I love and follow all types of sports ranging from swimming to the rest of the world football (aka soccer) to American football.

Just started taking pilates classes and I love it.

Recently became a member at the Met and the Museum of the City of New York which is my favorite museum in town.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in real estate sales and marketing. Our offices are in Westchester which means I reverse commute everyday via Metro North.
I’m really good at
My job and getting along with people.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many favorite books to even list, so I'll just add the books I've read recently: “The Best Team Money Can Buy” by Molly Knight, “Straying from the Flock: Travels in New Zealand” by Alexander Elder, “Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson” by Geoffrey Ward and “The Devil Problem: And Other True Stories” by David Remnick.

Magazines: The New Yorker and Economist.

Music: country, classical, jazz and old school hip hop-think Beastie Boys, Run DMC and A Tribe Called Quest

Shows: Honestly the only things I watch frequently are sports, anything on HGTV, Animal Planet (I didn’t grow up with a pet nor do I have one but still love the channel) and CNN. Admittedly I generally read the BBC and Politico and then turn to mindless nonsense (i.e, TMZ, Page Six, etc.,) during my commute.

Food: Again, too many to list. I love trying new things and appreciate anything that is done well. That said, I do love French, Indian and Korean food.
The six things I could never do without
-Friends and family (which for the sake of this is one item:)
-The information superhighway
-My passport
-A pool
-Cheese...its my one addiction.
-Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work, sports, what type of new camera I want to purchase, what book I am going to tackle next, food, politics (see above) and very recently what type of Maori art I will purchase when I am in New Zealand.
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends. Sometimes it's hanging out with friends either at home or out somewhere fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
How about things: I barely know how to ride a bike, the Styles Section is the first section of the paper I read on Sundays and I don't like to text but have come to realize it is a neccessary evil.
You should message me if
You like exploring, trying new foods, sports, having discussions about a whole plethora of things and/or think we have things in common.
