I was born in Israel, grew up in Southern California, worked in DC for a time :-) I love the outdoors, animals (dogs always, and cats more recently) and music (all types- from classical guitar to classic rock). I am usually up for spontaneous adventure, silliness, and deep meaningful conversation. I have an insatiable curiosity and a strong drive to learn new things. My job gives me flexibility to travel periodically. Three random facts about me: 1) In my free time I volunteer for a non-profit which helps cancer research. 2) I've studied (learned) Talmud. 3) Singing and exercise make me happy.
