And something ignited in my soul,
fever or unremembered wings,
and I went my own way
deciphering that burning fire...
- pablo neruda
I'm open hearted, insatiably curious, playful, love to laugh, have a happy disposition, intellectually engaged, and passionate about connecting with people on a deep level. yoga and meditation nurture my body/spirit and help maintain balance in my life. I am a true gentlemen and am looking for a woman who appreciates this rare quality - yes, chivalry is not dead! :) I value depth and play. witty remarks and laughter are my companions (huge bonus points if you like to play right along). I'm a basketball fan (long time warriors season ticket holder), play competitive tennis, and love outdoor adventures. Photography and traveling (40 countries and counting) are passions for stimulating creativity and exploration. my dog rio is my favorite. to know him is to know me.
What I’m doing with my life
A few years ago i did the unthinkable, leaving the 'sure thing' finance career in pursuit of something more personally meaningfulI, which ultimately led me back to school to get a masters degree in psychology. For the past 2yrs, I have been seeing clients as a psychotherapist. The work is so rewarding, mutually healing, and is aligned with how I live my life. Forever curious, evolving, learning to love myself and others, cultivating awareness and cherishing the simplicity of the present moment, and courageously leaning into life and learning to embrace all it has to offer while sharing these gifts with others.
I’m really good at
traveling, compassionate listener and being there for people, smiling, making people laugh, tennis, photography, loving my dog rio, connecting with people...

You should message me if
Although I am perfectly content with my life as is, I’m open to
meeting a woman who resonates with authenticity, vulnerability, a
sense of adventure, and a childlike curiosity. Someone committed to
her own path yet also ultimately desirous of sharing this journey,
deeply and intimately with another. Looking forward to meeting
