My self-summary
I’m one of those native New Yorkers whose breath is still taken away at the sight of the Brooklyn Bridge. But I’m not New York-centric (oh, just a little bit.) I love to travel—Spain and Portugal are two of my favorite destinations. I definitely have disparate sides. I read the New York Times but love the Daily News (or used to, anyway). I listen to Dylan but dance to Prince. Faulkner is fun but so is a Yankee game.

I believe in passion in all parts of my life and seek that out in my work and relationships. I love being in my body, and doing things that engage all my senses--touch, taste, sight, sound. I enjoy exploring body movement like the 5 Rhythms. I love working out on a regular basis and I am often on a bike or the elliptical. Riding my bike around Brooklyn and walking city streets and country trails gives me a lot of pleasure.

I am a warm, caring, open-minded person who is interested in other people. My other interests: translating Ladino literature, urban culture, Indie movies, annual pilgrimages to the New Orleans Jazz Fest, novels & memoirs, family and friends.

I would love to be with a man who is warm, compassionate, honest, intelligent, & sensual; someone who sees adventure in everyday life; someone who is passionate and into exploring all aspects of a relationship, someone who has an appreciation of high and low culture--that means we can read Rilke’s poetry one moment and watch Seinfeld the next. We would both find conventionality boring.

I am open-minded, warmhearted, and curious.
