I had one great-grandfather who was a rabbi in Russia and one great-grandfather who was a Methodist preacher in NJ. I'm a cultural mutt. My parents met at Juilliard where I also studied. I am an opera singer and lived and worked in Europe for more than a decade. I love to travel. I am the single parent of my 19 year old daughter. That's been quite a journey! I've avoided the long line of potential partners while raising her, but now I'm ready to step out into the world of meeting men again. I lean far to the left, politically - but for this election, I might have moved back to Europe. I am outgoing, love to hike, swim and ride bikes. My current passion is macro-photography of bugs! My friends and family mean a great deal to me but I yearn for intimacy.
