Attractive, articulate, blond, I love books and learning; people and ideas; museums & sporting events; good food and interesting conversation; new sights and sounds; hiking & biking and of course, the beach. I enjoy the company of others, but I can be perfectly happy staying home reading or watching TV: half introvert, half extrovert. I believe in doing for others and having others do for me, too. I grew up in Michigan, attended college in Massachusetts, lived in Mexico City and Ottawa for many years. I travel frequently (own a condo in Florida); spend a great deal of time raising money for my beloved alma mater, volunteer in my community, cherish my family and friends and follow the sun as often as possible. I like smart people who enjoy a challenge.
