I am Long Island born and raised, and I come from a Jewish family though I have no religious affiliation of my own. I just believe in trying to be a good person. If you are looking for someone with whom to share religious experiences, we may not be a good match. I live a vegan lifestyle and would like to be with someone who is vegetarian or extremely vegetarian-friendly. Some of my core values are animal rights, human rights, fairness and justice.
I love my dog, Ginger, and enjoy taking her on hikes and trips to the park. I like to play tennis, go to movies and the occasional concert, spend time with friends, read, watch TV and movies, and play games. I like to travel, especially to visit family and friends. I spend a lot of time with the people I care about, and not so much time at parties, clubs, etc. I also really value having time to myself; at my core I am more of an introvert than an extrovert.
Words that describe me: thoughtful, caring, pensive, sensitive, anxious, worrier, skinny, witty, funny, charming. Words that do not describe me: macho, chauvinistic, joiner, self-assured, bold, fearless, Republican.

Fooooooood: Thai and Mexican for sure (especially Little Bangkok and La Fonda), the veggie/tofu pita wrap at The EARL, the Whole Foods salad and hot bar on Ponce. I've been known to cook the occasional stir fry, vegetarian chili, and pasta primavera. I also make a pretty mean PB&J sandwich.
