I am a kind and humorous woman with a sarcastic tendency, smart, who likes quiet evenings at home, prefers intelligent conversation over small talk or slapstick comedy. I have a romantic streak and am looking for a long-term relationship. I love roller coasters and high-tech gadgets - I drive a MINI Cooper, read books on a Kindle, and listen to my music on a collection of iPods. I like reading books, primarily science fiction and history, and gardening. I am a scientist and my career is important to me. I am extremely involved with my synagogue and enjoy books and discussions on Jewish topics. I like to travel and learn languages. I enjoy sailing, skiing, and hiking. I plan on going skydiving this year. I like to bake and I enjoy ice cream with my pie. I like architecture and have traveled just to see buildings. I have close ties with my family. I like kids, especially teenagers.
