I've lived in many places and most recently came back from living for 3.5 years in the EU (Germany and Finland). I love to travel but I'm also happy to be back in the states.
I've studied Russian, German, Japanese, spanish and Italian. While I can't say I'm fluent in all these languages, I love seeing language as the window into another culture and way of thinking.
I love cycling, swimming, hiking and taking my boxer-mix dog on long walks. I'm currently studying Kendo - japanese fencing - which is a great workout but also involves focusing the mind. Having fun with that.
I also make wine as a hobby using grapes from WA - both fun as a process and to drink!
I'm looking for someone with whom I can have both long conversations, share a good laugh, travel, and just sometimes sit silently and enjoy each others company.
I have lived in the Bay Area before but now I'm back (for a new job) and ready to meet new people.
