I'm 40 and have a wonderful 8 year son who is the joy of my life. I grew up in Western New York and moved around the Northeast for school. I came to Philadelphia in 1999 for graduate school at UPENN and have been here ever since. I have a challenging and successful career in healthcare. It is truly my life's work. I also love to travel and spend time with my friends. Since I have a young son, most of my travel has been family oriented. This past year I had the opportunity to travel to Prague with friends and to Vegas for a conference. I hope to explore Europe more but there are many interesting places in the States I would love to see too. In my down time I like to read, go to museums and movies. I have recently taken up cooking (without a microwave, my Mom is so happy). I love trying out new recipes especially ethnic cuisines. I am looking for someone that is fun to be around and can make everyday things an adventure. I am attracted to people that are passionate about their lives and have their own pursuits and interests.
