I am a respiratory therapist that is extremely passionate about developing and sharing in a sense of community and fellowship with others. My family is very near and dear (well maybe not so near but they are very dear) to my heart . A special and a strong sense of self and communication are important and I would like someone that would respect me as well as those around me. The Jewish scene (holidays, community & Israel), are important, (especially in a small community in the mid-west). Also, I enjoy traveling and meeting others while engaging in outdoor activities (i.e. hiking, walking, biking). I'm into the fitness scene and enjoy a good meal, a bottle of wine, great conversation and laughter with friends.
