I am from Maine but NYC has been home for over 10 years. I adore Alphabet City and enjoy authentic, culturally rich NYC experiences. I have two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Toulouse and Murphy, a horse, 2 cats and an affection for the ocean, sailing and the beach. I love to travel, meet people, and write. I enjoy great beer, long walks/hikes and sidewalk dining. As an academic nerd with an MA in Liberal Arts, I'm always reading, usually poetry. If you're lucky, maybe you'll get to meet the dogs.
