I am an outgoing, warm person with quite a tender heart who is actively curious about the world, about people, and I can find value in almost anything. I love animals and good wine, great chats and companionable silences. I am passionate about fairness and most everything else with an optimistic, can do attitude. Love books and newspapers (last book read: Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Economics I learned from Online Dating) am inspired and delighted by Warren Buffett and Jon Stewart thoroughly enjoy live theater and horse racing. I crave fine dining and great hot dogs and giggling happily through life. Respect is crucial for me.
