I am passionate about living my life to the fullest, spending time with friends and family, and making the world a better place. I love to cook, entertain, travel, exercise and spend time outdoors. I love learning new things, seeing new places and meeting new people. I love the arts--all kinds of dance, theater, music, going to museums, exploring new places and eating out in small ethnic restaurants with great food. I have a terrific job working with the elderly who I adore. I love being introduced to new things and introducing friends to things I enjoy doing. I recently got back from Turkey--a fabulous place, and the place where my grandparents are from. Although I do not have any family left in Turkey, it was great to eat many of the foods my grandmother made, hear wonderful Turkish music and see some of the culture that was so familiar. I am warm, funny, and like to laugh. I am happy being me.
