My self-summary
You: I'm attracted to wit and kindness. Looking to be with someone who has passion for what they do (whatever that may be), who values family/close friends, being active, and having a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Would love to be with a person who enjoys sharing great meals - both home-cooked and out- and someone who shares a passion for the outdoors as well as exploring this awesome city. Hoping to find someone who would describe himself as open-minded and happy to share all of what life has to offer

You're thoughtful and driven and haven't yet been able to meet the "right" person in your day to day life. You've had plenty of life experiences and are finally at a place where you have a strong sense of what your want and what makes you happy. You are straight-forward, value honesty, are dependable, romantic, playful, and fun!

Me: Passionate about my work and the people in my life. I’m positive, caring, and focused in my professional and personal life - but have a light-hearted and very playful side too. I enjoy most sports, love the city, but enjoy road trips and travel away too.

I spent summers in NH, college in MN, grad school in MA and volunteered in Zimbabwe. I landed back in the city 10 years ago (first Brooklyn, now the UWS). I'm an avid runner - have completed several marathons - mostly as part of a charity running team. As much as I love being active, I can equally enjoy a lazy Sunday brunch in the neighborhood with a large cup of coffee and the Times.
What I’m doing with my life
Middle and Upper School Counselor (background in clinical social work and education). Also spend time developing Ethics and Health curricula. Love my job and am very grateful to be part of such a cool community.
I’m really good at
Long distance running, napping, being silly, drinking lots of coffee and making the best coffee drinks ever!, cooking with and for friends, philosophizing, dancing poorly but loving it, singing almost anything that comes on the radio, surprising people.
The first things people usually notice about me
My energy and sincerity. I like to really listen.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Yellow Raft in the Blue Water, Invisible Circus, I am Charlotte Simmons, Unbearable Lightness of Being, Time Traveler's Wife, The Art of Fielding, Queen's Gambit, Atonement, Middlesex, Explorers of the Infinite ...

Movies: Good Will Hunting, Ordinary People, Lost in Translation, Stealing Home, Crash

Music: The Samples, Pearl Jam, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, The Police, Keane, Elliot Smith, The Weepies, Laurie McKenna, Joshua Radin ....

Tend toward the healthy - if going out, love sushi, thai, fresh fish... But love the occasional chinese and mexican too. Just no red meat for me. Also love to cook/bake.
Six things I could never do without
GOOD strong Coffee
My friends and family

My amazing 4 year old niece
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to both expand and simplify my life.
How to attain a great balance of discipline and routine with spontaneity.

Health and being active.
How and where to find strong coffee.
Where the next good meal is coming from.

Middle School drama and gossip... part of the job requirements...
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends at a wine bar, pub, cool new restaurant... Cooking for/with a group of friends, disco bowling, at home with a great book just relaxing from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know all the words to "Ice Ice Baby" - and it's my life long dream to "Come on Down!!"
