I'm a friendly, warm, well-traveled woman with a twist - worldly and nature-loving (though very much a city girl), artistic and social, caring and warm. I love my time at home just reading, will happily go to a museum and the ballet and also go play beach volleyball or spend an afternoon with my family or friends. I'm affectionate, caring, a great conversationalist. I work in international relations, which I know is a pretty fluid term but I will be happy to elaborate more if you're interested. I like reading, knowing what's going on in the world, I love discovering new places and cultures, either in my city or through travel. The other side of me loves just taking evenings easy and sitting on my couch in my pjs with a good book and tea or just going for a bike ride. I like music and play the piano. I'm family-oriented and am very close with my parents and siblings (I'm the oldest of five). As for Judaism, I was raised modern orthodox (liberal) though now I'm more on the traditional side.
