I am an upbeat, intelligent, playful and civic minded woman. I love being outdoors, especially near water, whether it's near a lake or an ocean or the NYC reservoir. My favorite time to be at the beach is after 5pm in the summer and fall. I enjoy connecting people and nonprofits/organizations with common interests and like missions (I'm a connector if you read "The Tipping Point"). I feel very fortunate to love my job working in a NYC Public School in the East Village after spending 15 years in the Private Sector. Most of all I ABSOLUTELY ADORE being a Mommy to my 9 year old son who makes my heart smile. I am looking for a man who is smart and comfortable in his own skin - an upbeat, happy person who is a good communicator, ambitious, successful, warm and compassionate. Someone who is down to earth, civic minded, chivalrous, emotionally available and committed to leading a balanced and healthy lifestyle. A man who is confident, sensual, outgoing and loves kids.
