Hey! I'm a Chicago native (Go Cubbies!), and have lived in Colorado, Boston (half my family is Bostonian) Atlantic Beach and Houston. I love playing outside, hiking, reading... I'm a political junkie, former idealistic journalism grad now working in communications/marketing for PBS, evolving foodie, novice organic gardener, novice painter, I laugh easily and frequently even when I am by myself. I'm spontaneous, love patios, mountains, streams, trees, dive bars, most music (no country, no rap), ethnic food, IPAs and a good Pinot Noir. Looking for a guy who is adventurous in the kitchen, knows to build a fire, laid back but not lazy or disengaged, likes outdoor adventures and spontaneity, confident, emotionally available, dog lover, does not kill animals for sport (or ever), intelligent, challenging, fun and witty.
