My self-summary
I'm an exciting, thoughtful, warm, caring, capable, intelligent, independent, funny, insightful, creative, open-minded woman. Born and raised in San Francisco, went to college in L.A. and Berkeley, and graduated from UofOregon. Worldly, wise and fulll of passion. I've seen a fair bit of the world and am always up for another adventure!
What I’m doing with my life
finding new ways to make the most of it!
I’m really good at
Conversation: the humorous kind among others. Trying new things, meeting new people. Appreciating the positive, and exploring different answers to thorny questions. Resilience. Getting to the heart of the matter. Making yummy things to eat and drink. Going with the flow.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
travel plans, how to best prepare my kids for their lives as adults, improving what I do and who I am, interpersonal interactions, home & garden, current top priorities, how to make a success of this online dating process!
On a typical Friday night I am
doing whatever I feel like doing: the kids are with their dad most Friday nights!
