I am an administrative assistant at a financial services and insurance firm in Northampton. Most of my friends live elsewhere. I'm interested in increasing my pool of friends here and in potentially developing a romantic connection with someone..
I have a Master's degree in Regional Planning. I have used this degree in the past but am now doing something unrelated. Perhaps my career of choice will be in my current field of finance and insurance, but I don't know. I still enjoy urban/regional planning and, in addition to working full-time, am currently taking courses in an online Master's program in Geographic Information Systems through Johns Hopkins University. This coursework is highly related to my Planning background. I did my undergrad in History at Brown.
Outside of work and school, I enjoy exercising. I also play jazz guitar and currently play in a jazz band that rehearses every week and is playing out in March. I write songs for the band too. Although I don't read Hebrew, I have read half or so of the Jewish Bible in English and attended some Saturday services at the Conservative synagogue near me. I enjoy spending time with my Jewish extended family (on my mom's side) on high holidays. I also enjoy cooking, partner dancing, reading, skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, kayaking, hiking, and running.
