I'm a good balance of responsible and spontaneous. I love my work as a landscape designer, but I have many other interests including movies, books, live theater, travel, the environment and politics. I spend a lot of time volunteering for various organizations and was a Marin Master Gardener for more than 14 years. I have been fortunate to have many and varied experiences in life including careers as a photo-journalist in Vietnam, public relations and fund-raising professional in Washington, D.C. , and real estate broker and office manager in the Chicago suburbs.
I'm interested in meeting a man who is confident, kind, interesting and fun. I tend to be drawn to men who have a 'quirky' kind of intelligence and are unafraid to pursue what they want in life. Age and physical looks don't matter to me as much as attitude.
While I want someone who aims to squeeze every last drop out of life, players and those who aspire to the playboy lifestyle just aren't my type. Someone who isn't overly conservative, doesn't dwell on the woes of the world and is ready to start this exciting new chapter of life is who I'm looking for. No couch potatoes for me, although quiet nights at home with the right man would be great. Life should be an exciting adventure, and I hope to find the right man with whom to have fun exploring new things and places.
There's so much more to talk about, but I'm thinking that would be so much better over drinks or the ubiquitous cup of coffee.
Lots of movies - mostly independent and foreign. Most of the shows I go to are live theater like Berkeley Rep and Marin Theater Company as well as Cal Performances. I like many kinds of music,especially live music. As far as food goes, I enjoy just about everything except goat cheese and sushi. It's the squishy texture.......
