ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

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 terribly clever movie quotes should be woven into everyday conversation.

I moved to NY to do some graduate work in early literacy at Columbia and just wrapped up that degree last month. Aside from navigating job opportunities, I am in full exploration mode. There is still so much to see and experience and I'd love to meet and hang out with someone whose curiosity about and love for this city matched my own.

A little more about me ... I am fascinated by 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 on my iPod are Patty Griffin, Ella Fitzgerald, John Mayer, The Airborne Toxic Event, Mumford and Sons, Blind Pilot, Coldplay, 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, PolitiFact, NPR, and Morning Joe. I get less compelling news from US Weekly but sometimes proceed to read it anyway.

To relieve stress and stay healthy, I head to the gym several times a week - this serves as a fortunate counterbalance to aforementioned love affair with food. 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 (Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Austria, Finland and the UK so far) 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 need to cross San Francisco (...with a mandatory side trip to Napa) and Seattle 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. I have always loved surprises (the good kind) and so a spontaneous weekend getaway is always a treat but so is rolling out the door into this vast city and not quite knowing where the day will take you.

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 (preferably not a generic one) and we can figure out the rest...
