I am the youngest and shortest of 3 children...

In her own words

I am the youngest and shortest of 3 children and a native of New Mexico. I am an avid cook and a pretty good hostess. I also happen to believe that clever movie quotes can be seamlessly woven into everyday conversation. I moved here a year and a half ago to do some graduate work in literacy at Columbia and decided to stay because my love affair with this city is still in full swing. I should let you know that I am sort of obsessed on the subject of food. Whether I'm cooking it, eating it, reading about it, or talking about it, I'm pretty content. So it's no surprise that I am at ease in the kitchen ... chopping, sauteing, seasoning, and tasting. Inevitably, I will be sipping a glass of really good wine and listening to music as I do this. But if I'm feeling unmotivated to do the heavy lifting, I just head out the door and continue sampling the many culinary adventures this city has to offer! Music is a constant in my life and my tastes run wide. Some of the artists in heavy rotation are Patty Griffin, Ella Fitzgerald, John Mayer, The Airborne Toxic Event, Blind Pilot, Elton John, Lyle Lovett, The Boxcar Rebellion, Holly Williams, Astrud Gilberto, Handel, Tchaikovsky, and Charlie Parker to name just a few. I definitely like to stay informed about the world around me and typically get my news from the NYT, WSJ, NPR, and Morning Joe. I get less compelling news from US Weekly but sometimes proceed to read it anyway. To relieve stress and counteract aforementioned love affair with food, I head to the gym several times a week. On the outdoor scene, I like to run, snow ski, and hike. When leisure time comes around, you would probably find me hanging out with friends over a glass of wine, wandering around this city (taking in the architecture and endless people watching), reading, going to see a good movie, heading to a festival or to see a cool art exhibit. I have been fortunate to travel a fair amount but there's still so much more to see. I hope to spend time with someone who craves travel and enjoys exploring new cities, cultures, and foods. Some of the stamps I would still like in my passport? Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Africa, Vancouver, Prague and definitely more time in France and Italy. And stateside, I still want to cross San Francisco, Seattle and Minneapolis off the list. I am looking for a smart, kind, genuine, articulate guy who can make me laugh and make me think. I am not a shrinking violet so I need someone who can hold his own and enjoys being around other people but also enjoys down time together. While my family is spread out around the country, we are a close-knit group and see each other on a regular basis. Family and my close friends are very important to me and I would want a guy that values those kinds of relationships in his own life. Clearly, a fellow foodie would be ideal – someone to sample my culinary experiments and loves to try new restaurants and frequent local favorites. I definitely need a guy who's up for travel, great conversation, and of course, something delicious! You get the idea here, shoot me an e-mail (resisting any urge to use your "cut and paste" option) and we can figure out the rest.....
