I was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1969, the hometown of both of my parents. My family soon moved to the suburbs of the nearby city of Reading, and that is where I grew up.

My father was a supermarket manager and my mother, when she worked full time, was an office assistant. My family and the area where I grew up is rooted in the Pennsylvania German culture.

I have one sibling – a younger sister – who lives near me. Both of my parents are now deceased. I have spent my whole adult life living in Richmond, Virginia, where I enjoy the temperate climate and Southern friendliness.

I am presently single, having been divorced for about 12 years (after a marriage of 8 years) and am open to the idea of finding a new life partner. I have no human children – only adorable canine ones that I like to take on hiking adventures.

Time spent outdoors is important to me, and I love beaches and almost any activity involving water. I also enjoy getting my hands (and sometimes the rest of me) dirty in the garden.

Music is something I enjoy a lot, and my musical tastes are pretty diverse. Occasional nights out salsa dancing bring me great joy.

My main spiritual practice is yoga, and I recently became a certified yoga instructor. I also play the flute – pretty well when I find time to practice regularly.
