The truth is I am a Jew from the Midwest who grew up conservative and imbued with midwestern Jewish values. I am a warm, romantic, passionate, compassionate, understanding, demanding, loving, patient and a non-judgmental mensch and loyal friend. I love to laugh, hike, bike, golf, swim, and be part of nature. I especially enjoy biking and my two dogs. I started traveling at a young age and developed an affinity for diverse cultures and perspectives. As a result, I have lived abroad on a number of occasions and am currently working in the area of global business development for a large multi-national company in the field of security. I love art, music, architecture, history, and archeology and am fascinated with genealogy. I am at a crossroad and am looking to craft a new life for myself, which will include a new best friend, and God save me from ever having to write these things again.
