My self-summary
Born and raised in Minnesota, I live near Lake Harriet 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 laugher 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 loved the Netherlands for its people and the slower pace of daily life.

Sure, I have experienced heart ache in my life but I feel optimistic about love and companionship. I look forward to meeting someone with whom I can enjoy life and love. And I'm hoping that person also has that unexplainable chemistry that happens like magic when you least expect it.

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. I am a dog lover through and through.
What I’m doing with my life
For fun, I like to check out new restaurants and eat delightful food. I also go the movies quite frequently. 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 to a Saturday morning yoga class.
