I prefer warm weather to cold. A beach, white sand, pretty blue water and palm trees.. my zen! I love to be silly, laugh and experience new things. I also like to explore wineries. Give me a cold Savignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio any day!
I also enjoy working out at the gym and taking tae kwan do classes. I like to hike, bike, run, and sometimes just go for a long walk with my ipod (usually listening to the Kane Show - so I am laughing while I am walking!). Basically, if I'm outside (and it's warm enough!) I'm happy!
I have two children. My son 24 and my daughter is 20. Weird not to have teenagers any more! :-)
I run a non-profit creativity educational organization in Virginia for preschool - college age levels. It is an international non-profit organization and is my "volunteer" job - But I love it!
I love sci fi (yup - I'm a nerd! :-)) - got my B.S. in Astronomy from Penn State and M.Ed and PhD from UVA in education. I taught for 10 years - first year I taught HS physics. I was a professor at a university for 14 years - through this summer teaching graduate education courses. I am now working for DOD. I have a theatre background... used to perform. I've produced 10 shows for a community theatre group when my daughter started to get involved in theatre. I love seeing shows, listening to live music...almost any kind. Also like lots of current music - very eclectic tastes..
I grew up in NY - Queens and Long Island - but I've lived in VA for 26 years now!
I'm not a cook - but I'm a good student! Teach me! I do bake a mean cheesecake though. I actually apologized to my kids for not always having a home-cooked meal for them and my son said, "Mom, you've never been stereotypical. Why start now?" I hugged him!
I keep getting asked if I am really 5 ft.. YES!! Really!! :-)
I am not religious, but I do respect all beliefs. Although I also respect everyone's opinions and views, if you like Trump or the TEA party - we are not a good match.

Food: the spicier the better- if you're not sweating, you're not eating! :-). But I am also gluten-free... can still eat just about anywhere.
Why don't more guys smile in their pictures??
I won't respond if you do not have photos and do not live within driving distance.
I have not paid for the full service, so I cannot see who "likes" me.
If you made your profile 'private' - I cannot message you - even if you message me
