My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was in primary school when I read about the Great Wall of China. I dreamed of one day being there but it didn't go far, other dreams came along. Twenty two years later, climbing these very rough uneven steps, some very small and some so high it took two to clamber up that book & dream hit me between the eyes. I've lived my dreams. With sacrifice, discipline, fun and commitment my life is enriched. I'm David and originally a Kiwi, that’s a New Zealander if you're unsure. I’ve travelled the world, lived in various countries, experienced many cultures & learnt some tough lessons along the way. I hope to meet someone with the same appreciation of people, places, cultures & life’s surprises.

A friend sent me this quote saying it reminded her of me. It resonates and speaks more powerfully than words I can write:
"This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."
George Bernard Shaw

I was a violin maker and restorer for 23 years working with the worlds touring soloists and orchestras. My commitment in being my best had me being one of the best in the world. I find myself attracted to people that enjoy life, laugh easily even at self, take life as it comes and at the same time carry an intensity of self and purpose. Someone who enjoys art and "the arts", who's spiritual, passionate, open, who lives their dreams and can express their depth speaks powerfully to me.

I look younger than my years; the first pic is from June 2014 and you'll see if we meet. Only saying because so many people are looking for the older guy when we are meeting

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm creating and realizing "Geio" into the world. (the Global Education & Innovation organization that supports bringing all education to all people). Over the last five years I have been involved in my own self growth. Transforming who I am allows me to be ready in an open and positive way for who I want to be with; Sterling, Landmarks curriculum, School of Humanity & Awareness. I'm serving communities as I can.

Some quotes I live by:
