I enjoy my job, and I'm lucky to have many amazing friends and a big, loving family. I'm happy, and I have a great life. I'm looking to share it with someone who is adventurous, funny, and unique.
I feel fortunate to have moved around a bit, and I've enjoyed living in different places. I love Boston, and it's home now, but someday I'd like to move somewhere warmer.
I am curious, enthusiastic, and compassionate.
giving gifts (and greeting cards)
laughing at myself
sleeping through loud noises (my alarm, construction, my niece and nephew crying, etc.)
spotting errors in grammar
appreciating the little things
making cocktails (and drinking them)
telling stories (and making sound effects)
