Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Friends describe me as a laid-back, creative and optimistic person
who is walking the boulevard of his dreams. Romantic love,
compassionate friendship and my family are most important to me in
life. I highly value knowledge and learning. I pursue my goals in
life with passion, and generally I am fairly successful in reaching
them. I am spiritual, and I strive to bring good to others and want
to help make the world a better place. I am fairly cosmopolitan as
I grew up in Europe (Germany, Scandinavia) and the US (New England,
Bay Area) and have lived for extended periods of time in Japan and
Brazil - also had short stints in Paris and Venice. I love nature,
in particular the mountains and the sea, and I enjoy adventure
sports such as kitesurfing, snowboarding, mountaineering and scuba
diving. I also enjoy good cuisine, music, the arts, dancing,
philosophy and leisure travel.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After business school I spent 3 years in strategy consulting (think
MBB) in Europe and New York. I returned to the Bay Area this
summer, and I today run M&A Strategy for a tech company. I love
my job as I am paid to think about how our future may look like or
how to create it :-).
I live in Russian Hill and love the neighborhood - anything from
Union Yoga, Bacchus, Okoze Sushi, Frascati, La Boulange to the
tennis courts on top of Russian Hill. On the weekends I spend some
time in Marin or the wine country, go hiking in Yosemite, or scuba
diving in Monterey - did I mention that I love the outdoors
At this stage in my life I also feel like I am now ready to find
the girl who wants to change the world with me :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking myself not too serious, good conversations over a glass of
red wine, finding good restaurants in foreign places, and I am
really good at cooking Italian :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It may sound cheesy, but I have been complimented a few times on my
blue eyes, and that I look younger than I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I am currently reading "Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism" by
Chogyam Trungpa. I love good music of all kinds, and my favorite
cuisines are Italian and Japanese. Big fan of farmer's markets and
Whole Foods. Love NPR.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am looking to meet somebody with an open heart, who is honest,
educated, well traveled and passionate in following her goals in
life. Somebody who enjoys having good conversations but also would
like to climb Machu Picchu with me. Somebody who enjoys and
practices the arts and loves the outdoors. Somebody who still
believes in traditional values for a relationship and cherishes
love for life more than materialistic values. Somebody with whom I
can laugh and work together on our relationship to bring out the
best in both of us.
Having European roots or a strong interest in Europe is a big plus.
