Kind, empathic, positive, happy, optimistic, curious, witty and straight-up honest. I'm a heavy reader, a writer and an editor with a professional background in nonprofit management and administration. I prize written and spoken words. If you don't enjoy communicating, freely, openly and, at times, at length, we'll both get frustrated. I enjoy talking to everyone I meet each day, and helping those I can. Love people's life stories. Life-long, avocational, music and comedy historian. Lapsed Buddhist.
