If you are a spiritual smartie pants who loves music and animals, we will probably get along just fine... :0) It also helps if you don't mind me rattling on about cool medical stuff I'm learning...
I'm also a musician / songwriter / singer / pianist / poet. I have a BA in comparative literature, music and French. Also have asociate degrees in biology and chemistry from three years of med school prerequisites. I've been a writer, editor, and a teacher. I've been marketing director of a TV network. I have been CEO of my own music company, where I produced over 200 music events.. Now applying to PA school so I can practice medicine. I enjoy a new challenge. I love to travel; been to around 16 different countries and have many travel stories to tell!
I love to laugh and learn and discover new things...very curiosity driven. My most recent nickname is "MacGyver" because I find innovative ways to solve problems. I love to cook without a recipe.
I am back with renewed faith, optimism, and an open heart! Me in a nutshell: Paris, not Vegas. Tulips, not roses. Hugs, not drugs. Hardwoods, not rugs. Poetry, not punctuation. Real, not faux. Less, not more. Cooking, not looking. Purr, not fur. Kindness, not blindness. Quiet, not riot. Thinker, not drinker. Artsy, not ???
I am a snuggleholic who is looking for the right man to pamper. My massages cure headaches. I have the brain of a nerd and the heart of an artist. I am intensely curious and like to try new things. I make up my own recipes (sometimes to rave reviews, sometimes not.) If I could be any famous person, I'd be Santa Claus.
I buy products not tested on animals. I give to the ASPCA, whose founder said: the measure of any society is characterized by that society's treatment of the defenseless. I adore all animals and volunteered for an animal rescue org for a couple of years. My match MUST love animals! I am exploring veganism; I need training! The stuff I've tried so far is fabulous. I can recommend a great vegan restaurant for those who are interested....
I listen to KCRW ("This American Life," "The Moth," "Ted talks" and Joe Frank are my favorites, along with discovering new music.) Parents, cats, kids, and dogs like me. I was the reverend at my gay friends' wedding. I recycle. I love fall leaves. I was born on Halloween. My Texas accent trots out when I've had half a glass of wine.
I love music, art and theater. I'm a classically trained pianist turned songwriter. I have a CD of original music that I call "spoken word beatnik trip hop." Music soothes my soul and I cannot imagine life without it. Hope you love it too. I love writing songs and poetry. I am always excited about discovering new music...my latest is Azam Ali and Ron Pope. Love Angelique Kidjo, Etta James, Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, jazz standards, art rock, classical, indies, and lots of people you've never heard of...
I have a sincere desire to help people. I am really enjoying learning about how the human body works. I am also learning a lot about myself. I strive for self-actualization and am very compassionate.
I am "low maintenance" and very anti-drama. I have a lot of love to give and I hope I find you soon!
I, in fact, don't want to "relationshop"; I actually want to get da heck off this site ASAP once I find Mr. Sparky creative intellectual nerd-word sexy-motivated music-loving man. I am a very passionate person! We will bring out the best in each other and make each other smile. You are emotionally available and you want a long-term relationship. Is that too much to ask? (P.S. I don't respond to profiles without photos...sorry.)
