The one thing I am passionate about...
Being a singer has always been my life-long dream, and I continue to passionately pursue this incredibly challenging and rewarding career path. I am also a yoga teacher, and I love helping my students learn to connect with their bodies, to heal themselves, and to find some peace in their lives. I am passionate about education in all of its many forms, and I am a voracious reader. I love to travel, and have traveled throughout much of the Western world by myself. I am always up for exploring new places. I love the beach and the mountains, great food and wine, Central Park, my friends, my friends' children, and my exceedingly cool dog, Lila.
I typically spend my leisure time
Walking with my dog in the park, catching up with friends, reading, taking a yoga class, seeing a good movie or live performance, playing with my friends' children, learning something new, and traveling.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'd like to share my life with someone who is as passionate about living as I am. Someone who is extremely intelligent and very well educated, but not arrogant. He is compassionate, loving, and devoted to his friends and family. He is adventurous, flexible, and interested in the seeing the world. He seeks to continually broaden his horizons, while being able to enjoy his current circumstances and environment. He seeks to find meaning and value in his life, and recognizes that the depth of his connection to other people will determine the quality of his life.
The first thing people notice about me
Most people notice my genuine warmth and sunny, outgoing personality.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen - One of the funniest books I've ever read. I just finished The Hazzards of Good Breeding, which was also poignant and very amusing. The Birth of Venus: a fascninating book set in Italy in the time of Michelangelo and Botticelli. Also just finished "Magical Thinking" by Augusten Burroughs, which was hilarious. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss was absolutely amazing, as was What I Loved by Siri Hustevdt. I also have a special place in my heart for Timbuktu, by Paul Auster.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My supportive parents
- My brilliant friends
- My health
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Even though I appear to be so independent and capable (and indeed I am), that doesn't mean that I am completely without needs and desires.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Intelligent, Loyal, Perceptive
A little more about me
My work as an opera/concert/recital singer can sometimes take me away from home. I will be happy to make sacrifices for the right person and a family, but it's likely that I will still want to travel for my career occasionally, even after having children. Ideally, I'd like someone who would be open to traveling and seeing the world together. I also love spending time at home, and I can imagine that if I have a family, time at home will mean even more to me. I hope to find someone who can be as supportive of my career as I will be of his.
