Hello Guys - I'm not one to beat around the bush, play games, be dishonest or pretend I'm someone I'm not. If you are serious about meeting someone special, having fun and enjoying live together then please, keep on reading. I know who I am by working hard at figuring myself out and realize that I will continue to grow and change everyday. I am not one to run when life throws me a curve ball or when something new causes some anxiety because of the unknown. I'd rather take a risk and fail then go through life wondering "what if". I am so grateful to have the most fabulous family and friends as well as a career that has made me happy for the past 15 years. This past year I moved from the classroom to the administrative side of things and am the director of a wonderful pre-school on the UWS. However, I wanted to find a non-profit that would help those children in the city who are most at risk. I just became a member of the board of a wonderful organization and am excited to start a new phase in my career as an educator. I love to try new things and push myself outside my comfort zone often. For example: did a triathlon in order to conquer my fear of jelly fish, began rock climbing when I was 17 in order to conquer my fear of heights and love to hike challenging mountains that promise beautiful views. So far I haven't been disappointed. I'd have to say I'm down to earth, funny, smart, spiritual, playful, quirky affectionate, patient, open minded and ready for love the excitement that comes with meeting someone new and the romance and energy that can develop when you find someone you click with.
