Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Austrian-American who loves life!!

I am a global transplant. (in the US for 22+ years) Lived in Munich, Milan-Monza, Corbeil-Essonnes, NYC, and Montana.

Born and educated in Austria, lived in Germany, Italy and France for a year each, then moved to the States as part of a job transfer. (lucky me) ENTJ INTJ. Professionally I am an entrepreneur, technology and finance executive.

Love to run, hike, camp, dine, swim, motorbike, fly, beachwalk, workout and ski. Yes Austrians are born w skis. ;) Love music and concerts. Its a big part of my life. Love small venue gigs. Classical music is great too. Find modern architecture and modernism very appealing.

Passionate about movies with great stories...I love films (have 800 of must see ones). Need to find and make more time.

Biographies inspire me. I read philosophy and lots of history. Find expressing thoughts through writing very centering.

The past 5 years (since my divorce) could be defined as an interesting and rewarding journey, both in terms of authenticity and personal growth. Still evolving, embracing joy and pain, self analysis, centering, liberation, ...many things. Suffice to say, I am in a happy spot but this journey is one never-ending!!

I'm looking for someone who joins in and enriches this journey. Someone who believes in and embraces personal development and change. Someone who rests comfortably in the thought of closeness, trust and intimacy. The very foundation for all of this.

Have 3 younger brothers and a sister. They all live in Europe. I dream of one day owning a villa in Triest by the Adriatic. :-)
Patagonia on my mind too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
That's a philosophical question...

I see life as a wonderful gift, yet challenging and complicated in a lot of different ways. Simply, because experiences and knowledge get richer as we get older. Consequently, we as individuals become more conscious, deliberate and better defined as life progresses.

As mentioned above, I have been engaged in a transformative journey to discover, refine and deepen my purpose. A truly exciting period, perhaps as joyful as my early childhood.

So a long way of saying, I do have professional, spiritual and personal goals, but as we all know too well, life progresses and always surprises. (mostly in good ways - if we listen to it)

"Life is like a string of pearls. Each pearl representing a distinct phase in life. Each pearl's hue comes into focus only as we pass by it."
