I travel a lot, domestically and internationally, and prefer to travel away from the tourist track. I'm involved in North Korean human rights work. I study languages (I speak four languages, and I'm studying a fifth). I tinker and fix things. I build apps. I return to nature whenever I can. I love ethnic food, and learning about different cultures. I'm an information sponge, consuming and filing away large quantities of information. I'm adventurous, and like engaging in new experiences (e.g. I'm about to start hang gliding lessons).
I'm a scientist, an engineer, an inventor and a catalyzer. I have traveled extensively, care deeply about humanity, and consider myself a global citizen, so first and foremost, I'm "a part of the main; ... involved in mankind." (--John Donne)
Seeking my other half: a woman who is warm, enthusiastic, happy, passionate, intelligent and interesting, exceptionally kind and compassionate, and doesn't sweat the small stuff. A woman who treats waiters and DMV employees with dignity and respect, who tries her best to cross the language barrier herself rather than expecting everyone to speak "American", a woman who is nurturing, gracious and forgiving.
"Grace was in all her steps, Heaven in her eye,
In every gesture dignity and love.
I, overjoyed, could not forbear aloud: ... I now see
Bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh, myself
Before me (--John Milton, Paradise Lost)"
