My self-summary
Hopeless romantic looking for something real on the internet. Tempered expectations? Check. Still have hope? Check!

I am sarcastic and acerbic, and favor a quick wit. Witty banter is just about the sexiest thing ever!

Born and raised in the Bronx, but I've also lived several places in Northern California, near San Antonio Texas, Biloxi Mississippi, Chicago Illinois and Toronto Ontario.

On a mission to do more hiking and get more in touch with nature.

Not going to mince words here - I'm looking to ultimately settle down and start a family. (I still want to do some traveling first!) If you're not similarly-aligned, it's not going to work out.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a classically-trained chef, and am in the process of starting my own themed catering/party planning company. I organize outdoor social swing dances in Times Square from time to time, in addition to holding swing dancing competitions in other venues. Currently in the process of writing the third and final part of a murder mystery dinner party trilogy that I've been working on with a friend for the past year. Finally, I DJ at a speakeasy called The Back Room for the jazz band Svetalana and the Delancey Five during their band breaks every Monday night.

I have found a great work/life balance and am truly happy with how I've managed to find what I love and get paid to do it.
I’m really good at
Making people feel at ease, swing dancing, cooking, karaoke... The rest you can determine for yourself.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and the fact that I am a more-than-fair hugger.

The six things I could never do without
My sense of humor
Cheese
Butter
Chocolate
My crazy, warped, loving, supportive family (biological and chosen)
Love and affection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creative menu items for my themed parties. Humanity and our place in the universe. Self-determination.

Should I start a religion to Carl Sagan? I mean, the phrase "Hail Sagan!" Just rolls right off the tongue, am I right?
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my friends, dancing, watching T.V. It all depends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My sense of smell is very keen, and has led to some... interesting situations.
