I am a New York girl, thru and thru but love my home in Calif. Politically savvy, committed to animals, family and friends. My life revolves around design, art, architecture. Latin jazz, Frank Sinatra, Chris Botti, Tony Bennett, Steely Dan. All things Cuban. Italy, Paris, New England, Santa Barbara. Emotionally grounded and centered, work hard but believe in balance. Love small cozy restaurants with great food and music. Foreign film, live concerts, long walks in the park, stimulating conversation. Laughter!! Very loving, quick witted. Looking for someone who can make me laugh, keep me on the intellectual edge, and hold my hand.
