About me: I am a self employed professional living in the East End of Pittsburgh with my little golden doodle puppy. Aside from my professional work I am actively engaged in volunteer activities such as mentoring, serving on boards for arts non profits (a passion), teaching ice skating to kids, and volunteering overseas when I am able to do so ( most recently 2011 in Vietnam for a child welfare organization). I have an artistic streak and love to spend time painting when time permits--it is relaxing and soul replenishing!
A healthy lifestyle is important to me but it's equally important to not live so restrictively that wine, burgers, sushi, and chocolate are not part of it. I work out almost every day and have an active lifestyle- even completed my first triathalon event this past year. Generally I'm up for anything from hiking to yoga....ummm and I love wine and great food, did I mention that? That can be a healthy part of life too! Having traveled the world and living in NYC gives me a real appreciation for the great food and wine scene emerging here in Pittsburgh. I love to support local businesses and am fortunate that my home is within walking distance to many.
Friends and family are very important to me. I'm lucky to have a truly diverse set of friends and like to surround myself with people who are open, welcoming, and tolerant (like my family). You may notice further on in my profile that politics are not a particular passion for me but a few issues are of particular importance to me such as supporting gay rights and other civil liberties. An ideal match for me would be someone who is compassionate about these issues too---could care less whether he is democrat, republican, or other!
What else can I say? I do feel that I lead a happy and interesting life and think that will only be increased by finding a great match. Having read a few profiles containing info on past relationships it seems pertinent to point out that I am emotionally and financially stable, and hope you are too! Cheers.
