I'm famous for my parking karma (inherited from my parents) and for being the loyal friend who moves furniture, fixes computers, and makes airport runs. I like travel (Israel is a favorite) but I'm just as happy to be home with friends, family or somebody special for quiet times, local sights and culture, and nature/outdoors. Won second place in my first-ever photo contest for my nature photography. I sing heartily, if off-key, but no other musical talent. I make time for expanding my mind with books and lectures, live music, theater, films, galleries, museums, and reading in front of a lit fireplace on a cold day. One college recruited me for soccer, but now I work out regularly, roller-blade, bike, and hike instead of compete. I love children enough to babysit, entertain, and help kids with homework. A new professional opportunity will probably keep me in DC for another year or so before I can relocate.
