Other passions and interests include snowboarding, photography, running with my Golden, any activity on/by the water, cooking, traveling, good wine, a great movie, and of course the Red Sox!
I typically spend my leisure time
Running w/my Golden Retriever, relaxing at home with my buddy Tivo, grilling, or going out for the occasional after work drink.
The most influential person in my life has been
I would love to meet somebody who is outgoing, who knows what she wants, is compassionate, positive, honest, and is comfortable in her own skin. Somebody who could carry a conversation in a room full of strangers. I'm looking basically for my best friend; somebody that I can build a life with, confide in, go skiing/snowboarding with, be a dork around, travel, and be passionate with.

A little more about me
I originally moved to the U.S. from Germany when I was 16 to complete my last year of high school. However, this thing called college seemed like a fun idea, so I decided to stay (I mean, how could I not?). I moved to Boston after finishing grad school and found my way into investment banking via the restaurant industry. My experience thus far in New England has been truly great and I intend on staying here, I recently became a US Citizen! My dad's German, my mother Asian - thus the German, Asian, and American mix is what I am today. Also, I have a great 1 year old Golden Retriever in my life, anyone I meet would have to love dogs.
