While I was born and raised in New Jersey, I have also lived in Arizona, / Syracuse / and Florence, Italy . But now call Chicago my home for the past 5 years. I live in wrigleyville and enjoy all the excitement which comes living a couple of blocks from a Baseball Stadium. (Who knew this Mets fan would love living in Cubs territory) I like the Arts and Sciences and I am very creative (painting, drawing, and woodworking -- I even build my own furniture). I am a web designer who earned a Master's in Architecture from Syracuse University that I plan to use someday. I love to watch and participate in all sports, even the odd ones. Soccer is my favorite to play. Hockey is my favorite to watch (Lets Go DEVILS). I have a passion for food (I am a foodie) and I am a great cook. I like to entertain my close friends with meals that I have prepared, Italian cuisine is my specialty. I am looking for a woman who challenges me in all aspects of life and who enjoys conversation in a wide variety of subjects from sports to politics. I am family oriented, nothing is more important to me..
