I've had a long career in government and public affairs. I recently returned to Federal service (political appointee) after stints with the Congress and the non-profit world. I realized recently that I was paying my monthly fee and had not even checked this site in over 2 years. Unfortunately the photos are a bit outdated, and some gym time will be necessary to get back to that weight. Maybe I need to get back to the swing dancing I was doing at the time I joined. Too much work is really not the best recipe for a healthly lifestyle, and it would be nice to meet someone who will challenge me to get out of the office and out of the house for a more active lifestyle. I've lived on the East Coast all my life: I grew up in New York, and have spent two long stints in DC, separated by a great period in Boston. My family recently relocated to California, which means vacation times are usually spent out there. I am looking to meet a like-minded person for some companionship and then who knows?
