I look like I'm from one part of the world but a mixture of three (Swiss German, Lebanese, Filipino), have two passports from two separate continents, and work permits in two other far flung countries. It makes for an interesting life to say the least. I'm on a plane every other week to a country I never thought I would visit (not sure I'm looking forward to some).
I work for an incredible architecture firm and have been in real estate my entire adult life so I'm passionate about buildings, architecture, design, planning, how people interact, live, work, etc. in and around them.
I am high energy, inquisitive, a little loud (especially by European standards), outgoing/social, yet introverted at times, and yes opinionated (I do listen to all sides though).
I enjoy intellectual conversation/arguments as long as it's friendly, and it goes somewhere. Otherwise, I can do without it.
Oh, I took a fly fishing class this summer and got hooked, figuratively speaking. Yup, I'm the dork that brought his fly fishing rod/real to Saudi Arabia so I could practice at the hotel pool.
I have an introspective side that is usually kept hidden. I really love being a part of or witnessing sacred religious rituals from around the world such as the Dali Lama praying during a monastery blessing, the Crow and Shoshone Indian Sundance (I'm an adopted Crow long story), praying at the Al-Masjid al-Ḥarām or in a Gothic cathedral here in Europe.
