Life is short and I believe you should do your best to enjoy every minute (although I know that is sometimes impossible). I try to live a very balanced life. Work is obviously important and I really enjoy my career but it is equally as important to have a life outside of work. What is the point of working so hard if you can’t enjoy the fruits of your labor! I think I do a very good job of not bringing my work home and making sure I enjoy my life.
Most of my friends would describe me as fun, funny, sarcastic, witty, honest, passionate, fair, trustworthy, thoughtful, reasonable, compassionate and loving. I wear my heart on my sleeve and what you see is what you get. There is nothing about me that is fake.
I have a passion for wine and cooking. I recently went to Napa and all I can think about is how I can’t wait to plan a fabulous trip through wine country. I love to travel. I’ve traveled to London, Paris, Munich, Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Amsterdam, Ljubljana (Slovenia), Venice, Rome, Florence, Salzberg, Madrid and Brussels. I’ve also traveled throughout the Caribbean and love the Florida Keys. Chicago is my favorite city in the US.
I’m a pretty social person. I love to hang out with friends and go out for dinner and drinks. I have no problem going to club but these days I tend to prefer more of the bar/lounge scene. I love bars with live music. I go to a lot of charities events, some of which I’m personally involved with. I love to entertain at my condo and I love to cook. Cooking actually relaxes me. I’m fortunate to have an amazing family and great foundation of friends, some of whom I’ve been friends with for over 20 years. I enjoy being around people who are laid back but still passionate and driven.
I love animals! I have two rescues: a shepard/lab mix who the most well behaved dog you will ever meet and a cat.
At this point in my life I know what I’m looking for and chemistry is important. I am ready to meet the “one” but I won’t be in a relationship just to be in one.
I find it hard to really express my personality in writing…I am much better in person. Obviously you can't get to know someone through a brief description so if you think we are a good match or if you are interested message me. Good luck!
