Smart and funny, I'm passionate about animals and nature, love movies and theatre. Confess to watching some mindless TV. Prefer casual over stuffy events. Dining is a pleasure especially exploring something new and ethnic but won't turn away from traditional barbecue. Prefer to eat less meat. Like to keep in shape. Avid reader when I have time. Love museums, zoos, taking walks at the beach and on trails. High stress during the week makes me long for quiet, intimate weekends. Not a big party animal--been there, done that. Like stimulating conversation and learning new things. Sometimes I have moments of shyness especially at business social events. Love Summerfest, music of all kinds. Partial to 88.9 and 107.9 alternative music, rock, folk, some hip hop, country. Studied vocals and acting a while back and appeared in small community theatre plays. Still love to sing. I'm open to almost any activity as long as I don't get too cold.
