Smart, funny, warm, fun to be with. My work is demanding and fast paced but I try not to let it interfere with my real life. I like to think I'm introspective and an introvert, but nearly everyone I know would tell you I'm a chatty extrovert with a lot of energy. OK, yes I am full of good ideas. I have a busy happy life, but missing someone special. I have traveled much. Lived in NY, Boston, London, and DeKalb IL, and I carry each of those places with me. I like to explore and learn new things. I like to be active. I'm not an athlete, but I exercise regularly and really enjoy it. Usually at the gym, and walking or cycling outside. For a time I worked for a European bike tour operator. What fun...and I was never fitter. I care about the world, my family, friends made along the way, and yes, you. I like to wake up early and enjoy the quiet. I have an intellectual side and I value that in a partner as well. I'm hoping to meet someone who will charm my heart and my head.
