The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my family and friends and living a healthy and happy life. Part of that life is my job, which I love, but try to leave at work when the day/week is over. Some other info: I love music. Baking is one of my favorite hobbies. Love the city and all it has to offer, so much to see and do. I am an avid reader. I also like playing cards/board games.
I typically spend my leisure time
With my free time my favorite thing to do is walk around NYC and explore or go the Park or walk along the west side from Battery Park uptown. I also love hitting up the museums around town. If the weather isn't good then I like to either curl up with a good book or do some binge tv watching since I don't have time to watch tv during the week much. I also like to work out, cook and bake.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty! I want to meet someone who is comfortable with himself and knows what he wants and can communicate that. I don't play games and really hope to meet someone who won't play them either. I'm a straight-shooter and would like to get that same respect in return.
The first thing people notice about me
Recently my body. I lost over 55lbs in the past 3 years. And other than usually my smile and voice. I'm told I'm very happy and calming!

The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family and my friends. I'm a loyal person and I care deeply for my parents and for my brother. They are very important to me and I love them very much. And my friends are an important part of my life and those closest to me have each had a hand in shaping who I am today.
- That we have 2 religions in our family and I get the best of both worlds-Chanukah & Christmas!
- I have been fortunate enough to have had many successes in my career and overall wonderful professional experiences since starting my career when I was 22. I am very thankful to have found my niche!
