My self-summary
I know you are out there somewhere!

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a landscape designer with my own practice, and I am currently looking at some other options. I've also done lots of volunteering. I hope to stay in Northern California forever!
I’m really good at
working with people in any capacity, being a loving partner, cooking, entertaining, gardening, public speaking, writing, photography.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm fun, affectionate, smart and interesting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read and have been a "New Yorker" subscriber for over 40 years! Anything by Paul Bowles, T.C. Boyle, Tracy Kidder, Arundhati Roy and Barbara Kingsolver tops my favorites list. I've subscribed to the Sunday NYT for years.
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.......
The six things I could never do without
1. Love
2. Family
3. Friends
4. The beauty of nature in Northern California
5. Fun
6. Learning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want to do with the rest of my life. I would also like to help others as much as I can.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a movie, play, entertaining at home or out to dinner with friends or a date, even enjoying a quiet night at home once in a while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Tell you later.
You should message me if
You are confident, kind, interesting and fun - and if you are looking for a new love in life. A love of travel, art, and theater are definite pluses.
