I like to have fun and have varied and eclectic interests that include travel, the outdoors, theatre/concerts, and gardening. I love children and animals (no, I am not running for political office!). My niece and I just returned from a safari in Tanzania...it was nothing short of SPECTACULAR!! I am accomplished academically and professionally. Still, I seek someone to share life's journey, with all its ups and downs. I currently divide my time between the DC Metro area and my hobby farm near the Potomac (yes, I DO grow crops there!). Israel holds a special place in my heart, and I enjoy traveling there. I live a life of constant learning, and I believe I should leave the world a better place than how I found it so, I try to help others whenever possible. I am a faithful and spiritual person. I'm looking for someone who shares these qualities and who understands that life is better when we have one special person with whom to share.
