I believe that honesty and communication are the key to a successful relationship, so here goes... Yes, you read my profile correctly. I am separated--but I am on good terms with my ex, so hopefully we'll have the logistics worked out soon. Hey, everyone makes mistakes. I was just lucky enough to get my little girl out of mine! That's right... I'm a mom! I have a beautiful, intelligent, creative three year-old princess. She is the light of my life. Now, if you've made it this far, here's me in a nutshell... I am an easy-going, down-to-earth Leo who loves exploring the outdoors, snuggling up with a good book, sharing a nice bottle of red wine, and the occasional game of Texas Hold'em. I love to travel, especially if there is an educational aspect to the trip--spent a semester at the University of Melbourne in Australia; participated in an archaeological dig in Salinas, Puerto Rico; spent a summer in Jerusalem taking a religion class; travelled to Poland and Israel as a participant of the March of the Living. I love sports--playing and watching. I'm a loyal Red Sox and Patriots fan. I played volleyball in high school and attempted lacrosse in college. Haha. Also enjoy snowboarding, but it's been a while. I have my bachelors degree in Anthropology and my masters degree in Forensic Science. I love my job. I work in forensic science, which has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Yes, I suppose it's a little bit like CSI; however, I do not carry a gun, I do not drive a Hummer to crime scenes, and I am not allowed to wear black leather pants and low-cut shirts to work. Oh yeah, and I absolutely cannot match a fingerprint on a computer screen in 10 seconds. One can only dream! I am very dedicated to my job, but like to take a little time on the side for myself--and maybe you?!
