Interests abound and energy to boot, I would definitely be classified as a mover and a shaker. I attack the world with an open mind and lots of ambition, soaking it up like a sponge. The “mover” part of me keeps a fairly active lifestyle that started with team sports at an early age and is maintained with weekly workouts at my current age. The “shaker” part of me likes to keep busy with activities on the weekend, but recognizes that my comfortable couch is a great venue for movies and sporting events. Finding someone with common interests is great, but common interests and the desire for new experiences is even better. Family and friends are of utmost importance to me – they’ve helped make me the person I am today. I find travel and new cultures extremely interesting – new experiences and making memories is what keeps life exciting - being able to capture that memory with the perfect picture can’t be beat. I have many places I’m yearning to explore in Europe and Asia, yet lately, by the time the need for a vacation rolls around, I find myself in some tropical locale known for its beaches, seafood, and dive locations. Love to cook – homemade is always better than microwave. Who doesn’t love a dinner party? Love exploring local restaurants as well – attempt to try a new one each month. I grew up in a musical family – music has always been a big part of my life, as has the performing arts…truly spoiled living outside NYC and having all the Broadway shows a stone’s throw away. Ideally, I’d love to experience life with someone who shares the need for ambition, intelligence, curiosity, good communication and a great sense of humor with someone who knows what they want out of life. A strong sense of family and great network of friends is important. Someone who can capture my interest, challenge me intellectually, has his own opinions, is open to hearing mine, and can open my eyes to new experiences would be ideal. I am good for a couple email exchanges, but really prefer a good 'ol phone conversation. I think it allows you to best assess if getting together sounds like a good idea.
