Culturally, I am a blend of New York City and Northern California. But I think I will always be more New York. But I prefer living in California. I like the honesty of the East Coast and the lifestyle of the West Coast. I am kindly direct. I am earnest, caring, patient and, by nature, very curious. I am a good juggler. I have taken flying trapeze classes too. I like pickled, spicy and salty more than sweet. I am equal parts serious and silly. I like people who are comfortable with the grey areas in life. And I especially appreciate people who take the time to really understand where someone else is coming from even when they disagree. I am also easily moved by people doing nice things for each other.
