I don't take life or myself too seriously. I like to travel, whether it is to a European capital, snorkeling in the Caribbean, rafting down the Colorado River, or hiking on a lava field in Hawaii. I like to cook, try new foods, and new restaurants. I love music, but can't sing to save my life. I am very active and keep in shape with aerobics, swimming and walking. I value education and intelligent conversation. I like a man who can hold his own in a conversation. I can speak a bit of French, Russian, and even Chinese, but the accents sound strangely similar. I love the beach. I spent my childhood on the Long Island beaches. There is nothing quite like the ocean to relax and rejuvenate my mind and body.Life is too short not to have fun together, so send me an email.
