I was born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens when I was 5, and moved to California at 26. I now think of myself as an east bay Californian who enjoys visiting NY to be with family and to take in all that the city has to offer.
I have 2 adult children I’m very proud of. My son is married and he and his wife are both medical engineers, and my daughter is currently in the Peace Corps. I love children and, though I don’t yet have grandchildren, am able to fulfill this passion as a 3rd grade teacher in East Oakland.
I’m caring, artistic, intelligent, and athletic. I work out at the gym 5 days a week and love it. I enjoy bike riding and hiking fairly regularly, and have gone snorkeling, scuba diving, zip lining, and rock climbing. I also have fun dancing, am an avid reader, and enjoy cultural activities.
I am looking for a man who wants to be in a mutually caring and supportive relationship; a man who is able to open up and talk about strengths, vulnerable places, hopes, dreams, and ideas; a man who thrives on high activity and social interaction balanced with rest and alone time.
I am an excellent listener, and you will feel heard and cared for by me. Together we will feel strengthened in our quest to enjoy life and make this world a better place.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For a first date I'd like to take a hike in the woods. I think it's a great place to talk and get to know someone new while being surrounded by beauty and moving our bodies.
