My self-summary
I am not afraid of spiders. I am the worst frisbee player the world has ever seen, but I love to play. Seasonally-appropriate beer makes me happy. Selfies freak me out. Gym mirror selfies really freak me out. I live in Manhattan but have Brooklyn envy. Dreaming of a time where a log cabin in the woods might replace my city living altogether, but taking major advantage of living here now.

I have no problem jumping into a pile of leaves or a pond, because I'm the last person to worry about my hair or whether my mascara is running. I'm also pretty fearless when it comes to new or challenging situations. My family and friends mean the world to me. I'm happy in my own skin, and feel incredibly lucky to have the life I have.

Not into saying "I" this much.
What I’m doing with my life
I have an incredible job as a facilitator in a financial markets company, and am in parallel pursuing musical theater as a lifelong goal.

What else. I'm just ran my first Brooklyn Half Marathon. I volunteer with NY Cares. I'm going to Namibia to volunteer with wildlife in September.

I find any other excuse to be outside, particularly in the fall. I see plays and musicals and concerts. I also do not turn my nose up at a good Netflix binge. I recently got a bike and am trying to figure out how to ride in the city without getting flattened. I am trying to learn to cook. I am trying not to burn down my apartment while trying to learn to cook.

I'm an aunt. My niece is super, and we get along well because she is not intimidated by my towering stature.
I’m really good at
- Creating great leaf piles for jumping purposes
- Pivot tables
- Dog, cat and wildlife whispering
- Making friends with children
- Getting lost in foreign countries and being excited about it

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why are car selfies such a thing?
On a typical Friday night I am
not sitting in front of this computer
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once poured vegetable oil over a mouse to rescue him from a sticky trap. It was a successful mission, and I'm sure he is living a long and happy life in someone else's kitchen.

Also - I'm pretty independent and I have a hard time asking people for help. This can be a good thing, but when I am in a Food Emporium trying to reach a box of Nilla Wafers on the high shelf - not so much. I think those clowns are still talking about the time that the short girl literally took down an entire shelf of snack products and twisted her ankle in the process, just to get a damn box of nilla wafers.

Lastly, James Taylor sometimes comes up on my Simon and Garfunkel pandora station, and I don't always skip him.
You should message me if
...you are any of the following: creative, passionate, artistic, musical, funny, geeky, outdoorsy, kind to other people, kind to animals, not afraid of getting dirty, and you contribute in some cool way to the universe and to others.

I'm looking for something special. One night stands are not my speed. That said, I'm also not a big fan of emailing back and forth for weeks and weeks - so if you think we might enjoy our mutual company, hit me up and let's hang out. Also, I'm not shy about emailing first if I think a profile is cool. So, there's that.

Thanks to all you fine fellas who message me from open relationships. Not what I'm looking for, but let the search continue and I wish you well! Also, no smokers please. And if you hunt animals for the fun of it, we will not get along.
