I'm optimistic, open-minded (I’d love to experience what interests you!), positive, and outgoing. I like to entertain and hang with friends, I spend time outdoors when I can, but am happy to nest through our winters. I thrill to real weather. I'd rather love and lose than not love at all. Mostly I want life to be interesting!
I have two kids - both in college. Needless to say they have been a big part of my life, but we’re also moving into a new phase of inter-independence.
Here are some of the things I do find myself reading/ drinking/ eating/ listening to/ immersed in: Huffpo, Slate, The Moth, Snap Judgement. Neruda, Defoe, Mccullough. Beer, scotch, whiskey sours. Curry, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Southwestern Cuisine. Live music, jazz singers, Ben Folds, Alan Parsons, Sara Bareilles, Bowie, Dire Straights, Santana, Steely Dan, Guild League, Chris Merritt, Willie Wisely, GIlbert & Sullivan. Oceans, mountains, forests, islands. Spring & Fall.
