The one thing I am passionate about...
Two things: travel and giving back. I have hiked in the Galapagos, gorilla trekked in Uganda/Rwanda, & explored the Amazon rainforest/North Pole/South Pole. I have also traveled to Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, India, Norway, Ireland, Greece, France, Italy, Tahiti/Bora Bora, Prague-Vienna-Budapest, Spain, etc. In December 2016, I interviewed impoverished people in slums across India, and in February 2017 I acted as concert promoter to bring 1500 people together to benefit 3 charities based in the U.S. These experiences were humbling, and I appreciate everything I have in my life because of the things I have seen and done.
I typically spend my leisure time
In my free time, I like to be outside with my dog, exercise, watch basketball, read mysteries, watch movies, garden, explore NYC, and listen to live music.
The most influential person in my life has been
A smart sense of humor. My ideal date would be with someone who is intelligent, well-read/well-traveled, and funny. We would get to know each other over coffee or a walk, and (ideally) share a few laughs. If you aren't laughing and having fun, then what's the point of spending time together?
The first thing people notice about me
My energy. I'm a very happy person. I've been told that I give off "good vibes."
The last book I read and enjoyed
Been skipping all the selections from my book club's list lately for lack of time ... but maybe "All the Light We Cannot See." I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family and friends
- My health (physical and mental)
- My 2 daughters, who are mature, smart, well-adjusted adults
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I may be 50, but my habits are much much younger: I am always in the front row at Lollapalooza, I like to kickbox, and my favorite vacations are very physical.
Friends Describe me as
Energetic, Genuine, Happy, Intelligent
A little more about me
I am an intelligent, well-read, and kind person. I have a drama-free life, close friends/family, and few complaints or regrets. I am comfortable with who I am, and people tell me I always look happy.My friends describe me as warm, positive, and open-minded. I have a good sense of humor (which often borders on racy), and I'm quick with a comeback. I am also straightforward and not interested in wasting time playing games. I grew up in Boston, and lived in CT, NJ, and the Midwest. I have a healthy lifestyle, and am careful about the food, drink, and people with which I surround myself. People tell me I look much younger than my actual a
