My self-summary
I am vivacious yet calm, creative yet pragmatic, adventurous and organized. I am a musician and teacher, I'm really good at what I do, because I don't take it for granted. I'm always striving to be better, more informed, more inquisitive, more inspiring than I was yesterday. It's a daily quest, not for perfection, I don't want perfection, I want creative energy and a feeling of connection.

Some of my favorite things in life are:
My dog, Smokey. He is the most gentle, smart and wonderful companion.
Music... the more the better... classical, jazz, folk, celtic, blues, soundtracks...
My pianos, harp, guitar, ukelele, my voice, (the accordian, that I have yet to learn to play)
My brother... He is the best brother ever! He's smart, kind, loving, accomplished, fun, handsome...
Bulletproof Coffee! I'm addicted!
Wine... a good cabernet.....
Indian and Ethiopian Food....Fine Dining....Manressa's the bomb... has it re-opened since the fire?
Radio.... NPR, KDFC, KKUP, Talk910...
Being organized and prepared....
Burning Man... I'm a 13 yr vet....and a proud Black Rock Ranger!
Moving... walking, anywhere where there is a path in the woods, hiking, running, hula hooping...
Water... Davenport Beach, Lake Tahoe, hot springs, hot tubs....

What am I looking for in a partner?
A positive attitude about everyday's easy to be excited on the holidays....

Energy....let's get up early and climb up on the roof and watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee!

Social skills...know when to stop drinking! .... listen to another opinion... engage shy people.

Intelligence...know what's going on in the able to speak, write, ask questions...

A nice smile....good teeth are kind of important and show that you love yourself. other people, to the environment, to me! :-))

Confidence without arrogance....If there's one outstanding thing I've learned as a private music instructor for 35+ years, it's that arrogance usually means insecurity and ignorance. The truly intelligent people are very patient, humble and always willing to be challenged. ok... so maybe that's kind of a deep quality that takes a long time to accomplish... so maybe it's not a necessary trait... but the desire for it would be...

I really need someone with a nice speaking voice.... as a musician, it's a real turn on....a deep rich, resonant voice in my ear....mmmm dreamy.... :-)))

Healthy eating habits...An active lifestyle...I'm mostly vegetarian, with weekly indulgences on some sort of 100% grass fed meat. ....I never eat fast food or even moderately processed food. I want the best for this body, mind and spirit! I am always curious about how to tweak my nutrition to better suit my goals. I'd really love to have a partner who is into that as well.

Someone who can appreciate that I really love what I do, and even if I were the richest person in the world, I'd still be doing it.... it's work, but really not.......

My Boundaries:
No picture, no response. I will not exchange emails for a picture.
Don't be a dick! keep it clean. At least until I know you better! I will determine when that is!
If we meet for a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine... then you will pay the tab.
If you live more than 50 miles away, you most likely will not get a response back.
What I’m doing with my life
I love music, enormously! I play piano, guitar, celtic harp and I sing. I'm learning to play ukulele and button accordian. I am currently in a celtic folk/rock band. My life partner will love listening to music, enjoy live performances of many varying genres, and not mind being a roadie occasionally. :)
I am very health conscious and so I choose my food carefully. Mostly simple ingredients, organic, local, paired with a good wine and presented in a classy way. Yummmm

Playing piano, singing, hula hooping, running, hiking, walking, being a good friend, meditating, listening, asking questions, learning, teaching, playing guitar, organizing, camping, researching health topics!
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really love veggies.....all books..... international films.....
