Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Adventuress and lover of nature and culture -- from all the
beaux-artes -- especially dance (I'm an accomplished belly dancer),
photography (I'm a pro-photographer), haute cuisine (I love to
cook), to exploring the wilds on foot or by kayak, these and
world-wide exotic travels have given me many opportunities to
explore cultural and natural beauty and delve deeply into my own
interests. (I've explored every continent except Antarctica but
have reached 81 degrees north.) I desire to meet a male kindred
spirit to share all this and more.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I consider myself fortunate to have turned my love of nature into a
career protecting and restoring habitat for wildlife. If you have
seen any of the wetland restoration projects in the Bay or along
the coast, I've had my finger in it somehow. When not working or
photographing, I can often be found hiking the trails of Mt. Tam
and West Marin with my faithful canine companion. I like to stay in
shape but am not a work-out addict. And yes, there are the
occasional escapes to exotic and cultured places around the globe.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Interacting with people and animals. I listen and engage. I'm
empathetic. I'm a really good cook and an award-winning
photographer. I like to stay in shape.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Smiling eyes of blue. Energetic, confident, and poised. Voluptuous
(shapely and not fat.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some all-time favorite books include Peter Matthieson's The Snow
Leopard, Barry Lopez's Arctic Dreams, Robert Kaplan's Balkan
Ghosts. Anything by Paul Bowles is a good read, and I recently
devoured Goeff Dyer's Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi. What a
good read. I'm not into horror flicks or heavy metal music.
Otherwise, my taste in music can be quite eclectic, from rock to
jazz to world beat. Eclectic describes my taste for food, too, but
I don't do eggplant. I eat metabolic when I can to stay healthy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can do without almost anything materialistic. What I would miss
most would be friends and family, my sanity, mobility, wild places,
and companionship (people and animal).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What an amazing and beautiful place the world is and how to make it
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's no such thing as a typical Friday night. Friday night
activities depend upon whether I'm at home or out and about. It can
be out to dinner with friends, at a movie, or at home curled up
with a book by the fire or on the deck. If it's summertime, I may
be out hiking, picnicking, or photographing until well after dark.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've had all my rabies shots.
