I grew up in Atlantic City, NJ and lived in London, New York City, Texas, Illinois, Mississippi, and Missouri for my education and career. I'm a veterinarian working in pharmaceuticals for dogs and cats as allergies to the latter provided a strong incentive to leave private practice. My job takes me throughout LA, Orange, and San Diego counties so I'm flexible about moving in Southern California. In my spare time, I love to run (training for my 23rd marathon in October trying to do one in each state), read, attend museums, amusement parks, football and baseball games (Dallas Cowboys and NY Mets fan), and lie on the beach. My "guilty pleasure" would be horror movies. One of the fun things about dating is exploring new places.
