My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In a word, I feel my life is blessed—amazing relationships, lifelong friendships, my own business doing what I love, a house in the city, opportunity to travel, wide-ranging interests, good health, and an eclectic group of people who have become my family. I long to share my life and all that comes with it—true friends, loves, travel itineraries, creative lifestyle, and spontaneous adventures—with the right individual.

Things you should know about me: When I’m in a devoted relationship, I’m generous with my time, support and creative space. For me, the cornerstones of a relationship are respect, listening and loving. I’d like to find someone with a similar persona and outlook who can balance her personal space, projects and travel and is comfortable with an erratic schedules. I always have believed that similar personalities when it comes to openness, patience, energy and interests make our hearts flow effortlessly.
Great article about online dating, Wish we all had the numbers work for us.

I'm so not my age and proud of it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the last two decades, I have focused a lot of my energy into building my freelance business as a presentation designer for live events for fortune 100 clients. I feel blessed to get paid to travel to new cities and countries.

In my downtime, I still play music on occasion, DJ and VJ at parties, and sailing with friends. I enjoy thrifting, antiquing while road tripping, giving time to vineyard grooming, and collaborating on creative projects. It all feels effortless as I’m surrounded with creative individuals from puppeteers, burners to musicians and DJs to reiki practitioners and yoga teachers. These friends enjoy throwing a good party and helping me with many of my own (somewhat of a trademark of mine). And although I live a healthy lifestyle by eating healthfully and living consciously, I also enjoy late night drinks and dinner—and couldn’t be happier about it.

I find gallery openings irresistible. I gravitate towards modern, visual installations, insider exhibits and indie film festivals. I love turning locals and visitors alike onto beloved and unique places in the city, and also take pleasure in discovering new joints and try out the new restaurants before they get yelped into mediocrity.

I’m also truly passionate about Mid-Century Modern architecture and design. Seems I’m always searching for a Mid-Century home no matter where I travel and I’m constantly sketching Mid-Century home ideas for a yet-to-be-determined location—perhaps a warmer climate, or a different state or country entirely.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing the world globally rather than just locally. This is one of the reasons my friends and family tend to seek out my advice and the nickname of “the voice of reason.” I think this is also because I’m a good listener. I hear what people say with not just my ears but my heart.

Other innate skills: driving, navigating, packing, thinking outside the box, kissing and maintaining a clean balanced home.

On a more mundane level, I’m good at what I do and I have been successful at my business. Clients appreciate the unique mix of what I bring to a project: dedication and creativity, self-motivation and patience, and always a high level of engagement. Work tends to come to me without effort, but that also means that with one phone call, my life can change overnight.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Other than the fact that I look like Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson? I’d have to say my hair (salt and pepper), patience (lots of it), style (eclectic), smell (good), shoes (edgy European), silver jewelry (one-of-a-kind) and is always on time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
So many! I love new and vintage design books, sunset and architectural magazines, coffee table books on artists, spiritual ideas, astrology and sports cars. Thank you Stieg Larsson—loved the Millenium Trilogy. I consume movies that make me imagine and feel, movies that wander away from the industry formula and have something new to say. I want movies to move me—it could be a topic, scene, acting, lighting or cinematography, but something about the movie needs to touch my heart and mind. I prefer matinees unless the person holding my hand really wants to get to a night showing. I don’t have a favorite genre so I’m always absorbing a full range of topics and approaches, always checking IMDB for information, always trying new things.(Paraisos.Artificiais, Upside Down)

I breathe for music tracks that make a room, a car journey or the world revolve. For me, there is no better joy than seeing people dancing and smiling with their eyes closed. Being a drummer I’m motivated by the subtleties of rhythm. Always exploring progressive house and trance, down tempo, atmosphere chill, Arabic groove. Depending on my mood and what I’m doing—working at home or spinning at an event or driving without a destination in mind—I enjoy Buddha-Bar, Beat Pharmacy, Hernan Cattaneo, Hiatus, Polica, Carl Leukaufe, Jame Lavelle, Bonobo, Tama Impala, BRMC, Black Angels, Dave Seaman, Ulrich Schnauss, Digable Planets, Tiësto, Mogwai, Darren Emerson, Tycho, Keane, Thievery Corporation, Kula Shaker, Sigur Ros, The Verve, Trentemoller, Mazzy Star, Maya Jane Coles, Milt Jackson, Mogwai, Martina Topley-Bird, Submotion Orchestra, Massive Attack, Nouvelle Vague, Tricky, Transglobal Underground, Jamiroquai, Junip, Yppah, and Wax Tailor to name but a few.

As for food, can’t survive without all types of Asian, sushi, fish, inventive salads, raw smoothies and Mediterranean food. I crave healthy cuisine and gravitate toward organic-minded cooking—from raw food to truffle oil infused grass fed burger. I enjoy creating novel dishes based on what’s it in fridge—but make killer fish tacos. And I have to say, there is nothing sexier than cooking together for gatherings of people and chatting the night away. These are the times when I am truly in my element.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, travel, ethnic foods, close friends, my eyes and hands, modern art & design and driving.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My life with an individual with comparable chemistry, complementary lifepath, heartfelt balanced approach to living and living a body-mind-spirit for a progressive lifestyle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having dinner with friends, picking which party or event, late night sailing and packing the Travelpro's or just tranquil on the Natuzzi researching my next destination.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't mind ironing, I don't watch TV or sports, I have a lot of vintage coats and I'm both Mac and PC

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are so not your age. You are a witty, self reliant, and spontaneous. You naturally find the simple joys in life and love. You are comfortable in different surroundings and comfortable in your own skin. You are a dynamic woman who loves to travel, enjoys style, and needs art and music daily in her life.
If you haven’t given up on true love and I believe it needs to happen naturally. I'm just glad that I still have hope in my heart when many appear to have succumbed to a more cynical attitude about finding that one great friend and lover in life. We are all worth the effort. Good luck to all to find what your heart needs in life. It’s a short blessing.
