I was born to hippy parents on a commune in Tenn. where my parents had taken a vow of poverty. When I was two months old my family moved to Guatemala to help in the relief efforts after an earthquake killed over 30,000 people and orphaned over 100,000 children. We lived there for 4 years after which we moved to California where we settled for about 6 years. We continued to travel about the country, actually 36 states (8 months), branching out to countries like Thailand (6 months) and Mexico (2 months) in search of the perfect haven. My parents never found their ideal place, but settled on Gainesville, Florida where I was home schooled along with my older sister till I graduated. I left home at 19 to live and work in a community for mentally handicapped people in upstate New York for a year. I then moved to Paris, France as an Au Pair for another year. Thereafter I moved to The Bay Area and pursued a career as a personal chef for over a decade after which I went to school to study photography. Having traveled so much growing up I have always appreciated other cultures through traveling, food, music, and photography. My love for food is great, though my passion for photography is even greater. I've been fortunate enough to have been able to combine my two greatest passions in life and made a career out of it as a food photographer.
These are just a few things that make me tick.
I love, food, travel, photography, community, laughter, the flavor of water when parched, the sound of children giggling uncontrollably, a child's hug, sleeping under the stars, the milky way, swimming naked at night, sleeping naked, chivalry, pranking, water fights, the smell of camp fires, the scent of wet earth, romance, sea glass hunting on the beach, artichokes, oysters, crab season, my cat's meow, the sun, being outside at all hours on hot humid nights, cuba, salsa dancing, old weathered hands that have a story, hearts of palm, nerds (candy), sushi, a first kiss, sex, my friends, spooning, world issues, sound of rain at night, playing in the rain, cooking for loved ones, hearing people's stories, road trips, big and little adventures, camping, making others laugh, laughing at myself, snuggles, etc..
If you share any love for the above mentioned then lets see if chemistry does the rest
Sorry fellas, but I'm looking to meet someone who is 5'10" or taller.
Also, if you're a Burner, we're definitely not the right fit.
