My career is very important to me but not as important as the things that happen outside the office. Like everyone else, I love spending time with my fantastic friends and family. Whether it is a late night out on the town or just hanging out in an apartment watching a movie, I always have a great time when I am with the people I love.
I am down to earth and laid back. My sense of humor is pretty dry - I love to laugh and can be a goofball. I love enjoy aimlessly walking around the city, trying new bars and restaurants, being active (gym, soccer, skiing), reading and traveling. I am a true night owl and lover of microbrews.
In my opinion, NYC is pretty much the greatest place to live. That said, the concrete jungle can be tough and I need to get away every now and then to refresh my mind and body. After a much too long vacation hiatus, I recently booked a trip to Costa Rica for a winter get away and cannot wait to go zip-lining, see some volcanoes and relax on the beach.

What life is like for the person sitting across from me on the subway and what makes him/her tick.
Office and public transportation inefficiencies.
