My educational background includes an MBA from the university of chicago and undergrad from UCLA. I worked in the corporate world for awhile but realized that I'm happier being an entrepreneur and having the freedom and flexibilty to be around for my 2 boys, even though they're teens now and not home all that much anymore. I've recently startedI spending more time creating fabric art, mainly modern batik quilts and fused fabric canvases. I'm not sure where I'm going to go with it but for now I'm just working on improving my techniques and developing a signature design style. I also do freelance home and small business professional organizing . I really value living simply and don't like owning a lot of things or having a lot of debt. So its a natural fit for me to help others learn to do the same.
I love to travel to both new and familiar places near and far. I have been to Java, Sumatra and Bali, Peru, Japan, Nova Scotia, Italy, and Mexico. I would love to explore some of these places again as well as some new places with someone who shares a passion for travel to places off the beaten track. Although right now, I'd be pretty happy spending some time in California, Colorado, Sedona or Hawaii. When the weather is warm, I like to spend time outdoors as much as possible. That was one of the reasons I loved living in Southern California. I enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, yoga and pilates.
I would like to have someone in my life who values and practices personal and spiritual growth. Someone who likes to think creatively (not necessarily artistically) and likes to discuss new concepts and ideas and explore new places. Someone who is open-minded, resilient, curious and optimistic; someone who likes who he is and is not afraid to be that person and who can express his desires, thoughts, feelings and affection easily. Someone who is always striving to become a better person while helping others grow along the way. And definitely someone who loves to hug, kiss and cuddle.
