I'm a born and raised New Yorker who moved to Miami almost 8 years ago. Traveling is a huge part of who I am! I've lived everywhere from Moscow to Africa to Norway to Paris. Rather than establish my career right out of college I decided to travel instead. I took every research opportunity and grant to study that I could get my hands on. Now, that means that my career path was delayed, but I wouldn't trade it for the world! I moved to Miami to coach a sailboat racing team and when I was done with that I started teaching music (I'm a cellist). At the moment I'm switching my teaching certification.
I'm a water girl and try to get out on the bay as much as possible. Whether I'm sailing (I used to be a racing coach) or just hanging out with my dog at the beach, I try to enjoy the water regularly. I don't know if I'd stay in this city without such amazing beaches and access to the keys and beautiful Biscayne Bay.
I've been playing rugby for about 16 years. A few years back I helped form Miami Women's Rugby Club. The rugby community is a big part of my life and I hope anyone I choose to spend time with would be able to mesh with this crowd.
As I mentioned earlier I used to be a music teacher and also play the cello. That being said I love live music whether its rock or classical I can't get enough. The only genres I could live with never hearing again would be trance or techno.
I should mention that I'm a supporter of second amendment rights and do in fact have a permit to carry a firearm.
I'm a ravenous reader and am never without a book. Some of my favorite books/authors are Game of Thrones, The World According to Garp (or any John Irving), Hitchhikers Guide Series, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ender's Game Series, Outlander Series, Pillars of the Earth, all Neil Gaiman, The Lord of the Rings (all Tolkien), A Room With a View, Gone with the Wind, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Life of Pi, Wuthering Heights, Rebecca, Guns Germs and Steel ... I could go on and on.
Movies, hmmm... where to begin?? Lars von Trier films, Indiana Jones films, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Tanguy, Amelie, The Fall, Lethal Weapon, The Thin Man, Up, Shrek, Fantasia, Fantasia 2000, A Room With a View, Ghostbuster, The Goonies, Back To The Future, The Hangover, A Christmas Story...
Each night before I go to bed I ask myself what I have done for someone else today. So, I run a charity based out of Homestead. We do a monthly feeding and food distribution as well as the occasional clothing distribution. So, if you'd like to help out and do some good, please drop me aline.
I'm not a high maintenance woman. I want someone to be kind to me, give affection, make me laugh and laugh along with me, be able to sit in silence, pick me up when I'm down and lift me higher when I'm up. If you're that person, please take a minute to say hi.
