I grew up in NY, on the north shore of Long Island. I've lived by the water my whole life and can't imagine living too far from it. I graduated URI and was drawn to move back a year or so later. I am starting my own business designing tallises and I also teach hebrew school. I love anything creative or crafty and I love to travel and do most things outdoors. I am a certified scuba diver and am pretty adventurous. I am a very positive and happy person, most of the time but everyone has their downs! Im pretty laid back, as laid back as a New Yorker can be!!...but seriously, I hate dealing with petty crap and most of my friends are guys becasue of that reason! I take life day by day and try not to take it too seriously! I believe that everything is a learning experience!
