Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Friends say that I am fun loving, accomplished, compassionate, and
young minded. I graduated from a top school in international
business and have extensive experience living and working abroad.
Travel has taken me to more than fifty countries. This carries with
it an inherent curiosity and appreciation for foreign cultures. By
nature I am far more interested in ways of being, how we approach
life and relate to each other, than the “who” or “what” of
identity. I enjoy witty, intelligent women who know how to express
their playful feminine mystique.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
You might say that I am a social entrepreneur. I participate in
venture start-ups, 2 or 3 at a time, with emphasis on those that
offer solutions to civic, environmental, and cultural problems.
When time and money permit I go traveling, most often backpacking
to far off and rarely visited places. I enjoy the hunt for unique
items of tribal weaving, jewelry, and handcrafts, but rarely hold
on to anything for long. While its hard to live a pure zen-like
existence, less is more. In most areas of my life I like the idea
of stripping things down to the bare essence of art and beauty.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I’m really good at stripping away the political, social, cultural,
and relational filters that bind our lives, and finding love and
appreciation for people at the most basic level of needs and
desires. I'm also good at turning ideas into something; another way
of traveling the back roads of places and ideas.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hopefully people see me as attentive and curious, a good listener;
a bit quiet at first with a good sense of humor and a penetrating
serious side when needed.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Appreciation of beauty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What life is all about. What makes it fun and pleasurable, and
generates happiness. I want it all, contentment and hunger; the
kind of hunger that drives purpose and a passionate, energetic
engagement. So, I also think about how to keep the hunger alive and
the fires burning. I care about community and what makes it thrive,
and participate in several large social communities.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
While there’s the occasional party, a typical Friday night will
likely find me at the movies or at dinner with friends. Other
times, I love to dance, most often at conscious events.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While there are many people in my life my closest friends are
relatively few and have been there for a very long time. Most of my
friends and relationships are much younger, not out of intention,
but rather energetic alignment. I am open to almost anything.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Message me if you are fun loving, affectionate, compassionate, and
expressive. I seldom reach out but its not because I'm not desiring
to meet someone new, just a little awkward at this form of dating.
Feel free to reach out to me.
