While confident and driven in my professional life (how else one can survive in the world of international finance?!), I am warm, supportive, and very family-oriented outside of the office. Yes, I am trying to have it all... I love Rome, the Spanish countryside, the bridges of Neva and Seine, and wilderness of Alaska. I am fortunate to have a great family. My parents have always been a big part of my life and I hope that my 17-year-old son will also develop this sense of family connection. However, I am missing that magic feeling of sharing my life experience and adventures with a right person. My dream partner would be loyal, kind, witty, professionally accomplished, hopefully interested in foreign cultures, and a dog lover (I have a well-behaved springer spaniel). I am also looking for someone who has kids or (if not) is comfortable with the idea that being a good and caring parent is very important to me.
