*I value empathetic people, who can extend themselves outside of technological bubbles.
*I grew up tinkering with machines, and as a result I have a few hobbies that involve making things with my hands.
*I'm an designer/architect currently and get excited when I travel internationally for hospitality projects.
*I enjoy movement, especially outdoor sports, but I found a love for dance in college. This has become a big inspiration in my life.
*I spend a good portion of my life going to the mountains and finding beautiful places to rock climb. I've traveled extensively for this sole purpose and every few years or so I take a sabbatical and travel and climb.
*although not necessary, non-vanilla , slightly kinky types are preferred.
*I generally prefer non-traditional relationships. Emotionally intelligent women with outstanding communication skills are highly valued. I love scientists, artists and good dancers.

Let me know if you think we might get along, or if you get along with non-monogamous types , or if you wanna do something fun... Or if you like going on adventures, or if you want to be crafty. Or if you want to bake and eat sweets with me. I like sweets.
