I'm a veterinarian who was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and moved to CT in '87. I've put most of my time and energy over the past 13 years into building my practice, but I now realize that there are other aspects of life which I enjoy and I'm ready to share them with the right person. I enjoy any form of outdoor activity especially biking (just returned from a tour in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy) , running (completed my 36th marathon), hiking, and skiing (downhill or x-country). Over the last few years, I've participated in mountain climbing expeditions in Russia, Argentina, Tanzania, and recently returned from climbing in the Himalayas in Nepal. I also enjoy tennis and table tennis, folk/acoustic music, carpentry, reading, and the occasional relaxing evening at home with a rented movie. I consider myself to be an easy-going person with a sense of humor, who could find the good in almost anything.
