I'm constantly surrounded by great friends and family. I laugh easily and often. I am philanthropic to both mankind and the earth. I live humbly with an abundance of gratitude for all that's come my way and an understanding of all that has not. I love informed debates about politics, policy, infrastructure and pop culture. A night flipping between Rachel Maddow and Bravo would be my perfect night in. Drinking at a small bar with those closest to me would be my perfect night out. I am a dog lover. I cook, I love to make new recipes & I cook from the heart (cooking from the mind burns things).
