My self-summary
Born and raised in Minnesota. I have lived on the southwest side of the city for many years and value the sense of neighborhood and community here. Home is important to me and I enjoy intimate gatherings with a small group of close friends. I take pleasure in running and riding my bicycle. I like being physically active and I'd love to share this passion with someone who is also active and finds joy in fresh air and good clean sweat. Stimulating conversation is something I value a lot in daily life and believe hearty laughter is one of those things that makes life worth living.

I've gained a richness from the many intercultural experiences I’ve had while traveling around the world. I have lived in various place in the US and spent three years in the early 2000’s living in Europe. I especially love the Netherlands for its people and the pace of daily life there.

I’d be remiss if I did not mention my little dog. She and I take longs walks together every day and she surely adds to my sense of well-being.
What I’m doing with my life
For fun, I like to check out new restaurants and eating delightful food. I enjoy going to the movies at the Lagoon or Edina Landmark theater. I strive to be earth-friendly in all of my daily activities and I donate time and money to a couple of environmental causes that I believe in. I have a really great job that I love. I believe I am good at what I do for work, and while sometimes tiring, my work is rewarding to me. I try to run a couple of times a week and I go yoga classes as well.
I’m really good at
I've owned a number of house over the years and have become quite handy at upgrading and repairing my homes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Have coffee with me sometime and you be the judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Michael Lewis' Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt, was fascinating. Einstein: His Life and Universe, and The Nine. Mr. Church, Hands of Stone, Diving Bell and the Butterfly, and Lars and the Real Girl. Bob Dylan, U2, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, Mozart, Eminem, The Roots, Amel Larrieux, and the list goes on.... I enjoy food of all kinds and really like checking out new restaurants.
Six things I could never do without
Stimulating conversation, the people I am close with, my dog, a strong tasty cup of coffee, and a good night's sleep. OK...so strong coffee and good sleep don't exactly go together but they are two favorites.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to navigate the new landscape of caring for elderly parents.
What happened in our country that caused such polarization and intransigence.
Where to go on vacation – Hawaii, Palm Springs, Moab, somewhere in Europe…
Staying healthy and fit.
On a typical Friday night I am
I prefer to chill out at home or have a quite dinner out at a nice restaurant. Saturday nights I like to go to the theater or cinema or out with friends for some fun.
You should message me if
You are intelligent, love to laugh, and are a true blue liberal. I am pretty active and would like to meet someone who is active too -- running, biking, long walks, working out, seeing films, and going to art exhibits are some of my favorite things.
